Uniqlo has been a wardrobe staple destination for me since they set up shop on Powell Street in San Francisco’s Union Square. The rainbow staircase and endless selection of t-shirts and leggings immediately gave Uniqlo the key to my heart.
Now let’s talk jeans! Denim after 30 is not cute and is 100% not fun. In fact, the size of my hips these days has lead to me to just be thankful for the moment I actually get jeans past my hips. So when Uniqlo offered to send me a pair of jeans I was open to it…but skeptical. When I saw the size of the jeans they sent me I nearly passed out. My weight has been yoyoing professionally since I had mono in the fall and I feel like I just can’t get to where I want to be and stay there (that could also be due to the fact that I 100% cheated on the Whole 30 diet – twice). So when I got these Uniqlo jeans past my hips and all the way on I wanted to cry – but instead I text 20 of my closest friends to celebrate. The fabric blend of 79% Cotton, 10% Rayon, 7% Polyester, 4% Spandex does magical things to the lower half of my body. These amazingly flattering ultra-stretch jeans feature a cut-off design and a stretch fabric that moves with you. The flattering slimming, tightening effect of these jeans leads me to tell you to RUN to the closest Uniqlo store or snag them online here.
