Avoid Saggy Jeans Forever With This Handy Denim Tip

We’ve all experienced it—you put on a great-fitting pair of jeans in the morning, only to find yourself in sag city by the end of the day. Luckily, the solution is simple with a little tweak to your denim shopping strategy—to find jeans that won't stretch out, always check the fabric. We probed our denim aficionado, editor Nicole Akhtarzad, and she confirmed that the more cotton, the better. She says, "I don't really buy anything below 98% cotton, because any less than that can feel more like jeggings and less like jeans." So what's the ideal fabric to make up that other 2%? Elastane, according to a denim expert that we consulted in the past. Keeping an eye out for this ideal fabric works particularly well when you're shopping online and can't try on or touch the jeans. Fortunately, there are a plethora of stylish pairs out there that are made of 100% cotton or close to it, and we've rounded up the cream of the crop for you.
