I Finally Found Comfortable Jeans!

Yes, I know this is a quilt blog, but I have been searching for years for jeans that are comfortable for someone who wears a size 14 and has given birth to three children and i've finally found them! Old Navy currently stocks these so you can still get some if you wish. I have absolutely no affiliation with Old Navy in any way, just wanted to give you gals a tip.

I absolutely hate the way most jeans constrict your stomach, and I refuse to sit at work all day and be uncomfortable, so I haven't worn jeans in a while. To tell the mommy truth, i'd still been wearing maternity pants and my daughter is a year and a half! Well, the Dreamer jeans must have something stretchy in them because they hug you where they are supposed to, unlike maternity pants, but not too tight. The wierdest part is when you sit down, you can't even tell you've sat down, there's no change in stricture from standing up. It's actually kind of bizarre. They don't seem stretchy at all.

So anyway, just wanted to help out, as I have a sneaky feeling there are other quilters out there who may have extra in the stomach area and also want to be comfy and somewhat stylish. Am I right?

Wow thanks for the heads up. I don't get to Old Navy very often as it is not very close by. But maybe I need to take a look :-)

Thanks for the tip - I'm off to shop!

Which cut do you like so much? The diva? the sweetheart? the flirt?
Thanks for the tip!

ooh - thanks for the tip! I will have to check them out. I have some ON jeans in the Sweetheart cut, but they stretch out so far I am hitching them up after wearing them for 1 hr.

Thanks for the tip! I'll have to see if the petites are short enough for me.

And they're on sale right now for $19!

oh no, absolutely no extra flab around here!! just nice, lean ripped abs at my house!! ha ha ha ha ha
being almost 35 and having 4 kids leaves some extra "stuff" here and there, if ya know what i mean!
i'm not an old navy fan at all, in fact i dislike shopping there very much. But i may take your advice and check these out. ya never know, they may be wonderful jeans.

Glad you liked the tip!

Jenny, the cut is called Dreamer. There's only one cut for these jeans.

Lisa, I agree, I don't like to shop there either as most of their shirts hang on me like a potato sack! But my daughter wanted to go there so I tried on the jeans.

I'm so glad you passed this tip along! I think I'll be going to the States in September and I'll be sure to hit an Old Navy store to try these out. I have several pairs of jeans but always end up wearing the old, patched ones because the others are just not comfortable!! And you are absolutely right...even after riding over 1000 miles on my stupid bike this summer, I still have that "wobbly" stomach!! I think that's just who I am!
