There was a time when it seemed like all jeans had a stretch, but as vintage-inspired, rigid denim became more popular, finding great jeans with some give became harder. This is a personal mission for me; I was not able to comfortably wear a pair of jeans without stretching. The only way to get them is to go up two sizes for my hips, and then they are too big on my waist. I’m not in the market for a pair of jeggings, just a cool pair of jeans that I can actually wear comfortably. If you’re like me and need a little stretch in your denim, keep reading to shop my picks.
I’ve done the hard work for you here, but if you’re curious, it’s essential to check the fabric or construction of every pair of jeans you see. Must contain at least one percent elastane, polyurethane or spandex; The more, the stretcher. I’d like to aim for two percent if I can get it. Also, if you’re worried about your jeans stretching too much, throw them in the dryer. They will shrink back in no time. Happy shopping!
