Avoid the muffin-top effect by making sure the waistline of the jean hits at the right spot when you pull them on. This trick not only ensures that your curves will be accentuated in the best way possible, it also avoids any uncomfortable moments where the waist of the jean is too high or too low. NYDJ's Just-Right Rise hits right at that waist.
When fabric is too stiff, it’s unable to move with your body as you take on your day. Choose an option that’s soft, with a premium feel; you want a great pair of jeans that won’t sag and will stay flattering as you move. Soft premium fabric will ALWAYS move with you.
This one’s a must-do: The best pair of jeans will always have strategically placed back pockets. This can change the way jeans look on you monumentally and will lift your bum for the ultimate slimming effect, especially with NYDJ's Lift Tuck Technology.
NYDJ’s patented crisscross panel design is the core reason why these jeans fit so well. Look for the X inside the jean when shopping this style. It’s slimming, and it flattens in just the right places—a feature almost every woman wants in a pair of jeans.
