Added to the mix my Latina curves, I love them, but not all jeans work with my 'curvy' and very much 'hourglass' figure. I have always had a super small waist regardless of my weight or size at any given moment which usually means countless hours of trying on jeans or having them tailored, sometimes both to have the waist taken in, and have the length hemmed/shortened. Which means tacking on tailoring fees to the price of most my jeans and taking away the fun of the instant gratification most of us get from our 'retail therapy'. (I don't usually get to wear my purchase until the items come back from the Tailor).
For me it's been a very weird jeans year, I've lost some weight, which is great of course, but it has made the waist gap issue I experience with most denim even more pronounced.
If you are like me you do your homework and research when it comes to making a purchase. Although let's face it, in this economy, every purchase is an investment! When I read positive reviews including "These Jeans Changed my Life!" from People Magazine Style Watch, "Designer Jeans that fit Everyone" from an AOL Stylist, "Wow" from Essence Magazine, "Super Flattering" from Redbook and "Your Answer to Jeans that Fit" from WE TV, I knew I was on to something!
The Story of A Brand, The Story of a Family and The Story of What Will Become Your Favorite Jeans!
While living in Brazil, they noticed that the style and cut of Brazilian jeans worked with a woman’s natural curves and when they returned to the States, they decided to share this insight through the design of their own line of jeans made with premium Brazilian denim that are now available in more than 300 boutiques nationwide, as well as online at ilovethesejeans.com. The name Beija Flor comes from the indigenous selection of hummingbirds that grace the countryside of Brazil.
Maybe it's because I'm super close with my mom, but I absolutely love that the minds behind the brand are a mother/daughter duo! How cool is that?
