I’ve been obsessed with high waisted mom jeans for so long and have been on the hunt for the perfect pair for years. The major problem with vintage style mom jeans is that they don’t have stretch or give, making it extremely difficult for most women to find a flattering pair for their body type. A few years ago I spent months on end searching for the perfect pair mom jeans for curves, that would fit my thighs and legs well, while holding snug at the waist and not make me look stubby. Alas, I was disappointed.

Being only 5’2 and a bit on the curvy side, jeans for me are always too long for my height and too big on the waist if they fit well on my thighs. Shopping for jeans, or bottoms in general, is probably one of the most frustrating things. Most everyday, affordable retailers don’t offer much diversity in sizes as well as styles so the battle becomes finding that one expensive pair that you’re willing to splurge on.
After many failed attempts and riding the struggle bus, that included buying jeans three sizes too big with the hopes of tailoring them to fit, I’m happy to say I’ve found the one. I came across these distressed, paper bag waist mom jeans that was sitting on a sale rack in Dynamite. They were the ONLY pair left and fit like a glove. My favourite feature is the blunt cut, frayed bottoms. I’m proclaiming these to be the perfect mom jeans for curves, hands down.
I’m really enjoying all styles of high waisted bottoms lately and I love that they cinch at the waist perfectly, creating the illusion of a shapely figure while concealing the tummy area perfectly. I love pairing them with a fitted top or a loose fitting t-shirt. I’ve linked similar styles with the paperbag waist below. They have just the right amount of stretch and a belted waist that allows your to wear them loose or as tight as your please.
