Denim or Jeans

This post is also available in: German

Denim or jeans? You already know the feeling when it’s time to go and shop for a new pair of jeans. It can get frustrating finding a pair of jeans that fit. It’s like going on a quest through all the stores in town and ending up empty-handed or with just an OK jean that you paid a fortune for.

I am 6ft tall and belong to the tall curvy women. All my life I have been struggling with finding the right jeans. If the jeans fit around the waist they were too short, if the length was good, it did n’t fit the waist or hip, and if everything else was OK, then it was the gap on the waistband in the back. The story of my experience with jeans is endlessly long.

Stores are full of jeans on hangers, rags, and shelves, and forget the ones you saw in the window is made to fit the doll. It can take days and weeks to find fitting jeans.

Now we can buy jeans online and because it’s easy it’s also a challenge. The question is how to shop for jeans online, which is what we will talk about next…..

Shopping jeans online.

How do we go about finding and shopping for the right jeans? 

Before you shop for jeans online, it would be a good idea to make a list of what is important for you in a jean, this will make it more fun and less frustrating. Your list may look something like this:-

  • Find out your size (American, UK, and European), by measuring your waist, hips, thighs, rise (zip area), and length inseam (leg length inside) outseam (leg length outside from the waist to your foot).
  • The color.
  • Material and pattern
  • style
  • Price

Tip: Look for the jeans first, then look at the price second, since you want to know your fit.

Denim or jean

The fabric of jeans is a coarse, twilled cotton material usually blue. Jeans or denim were worn as working cloth or overalls for heavy-duty labor in the eight hundred, in time it became popular as casual wear which started with the pans and later extended to other styles and forms.

Denim: Denim is the mother of jean. It is made on a wide loom, durable,100% cotton, and thicker than jeans. The material is heavier, ridged, and lasts longer. It takes more material to make denim jeans than regular jeans and usually more expensive.

When you first buy denim it’s usually raw (never been washed) and can shrink once washed, that’s why it’s wise to wear them for a while before you wash them so they can adjust to your shape. After wearing for a while, wash denim inside out in cold water and leave out to dry naturally, do not put in a dryer.

Jeans: The material is thinner, has elastane, lighter, and prewashed. Depending on the quality it can lose its shape but goes back to shape after washing.

Affordable and quality jeans

So what should we be looking for when shopping online for a pair of jeans. If you want to make a good choice and avoid disappointment it’s always a good idea to know sometime about jeans.

An online store should have good product information about the material.

rigidity, weight, raw or wash, zip or button, the selvage seam and special detail, the quality of the stitch (which should be tight with no loose thread ends). 

Tip: A quality jean or denim has an F for (five-pocket jeans) on the side, more stitches per inch, and Button which are more expensive than a zip. For expensive jeans, you pay for detail, subtleties, the wash.

For curve women, I recommend only good quality jeans since it is a thinner material and wears out in time therefore quality should be high on your list.

Conclusion

Jeans just have to fit, hug our curves, keep our shape like a second skin, regardless of the style. The fabric must be comfortable (soft or ridged according to our liking) the pattern and style have to fit our shape so we feel comfortable and attractive. We want a pair of jeans that we can wear all day any day never needing to adjust them every time we move.

Since we own more than one pair of the jean it’s always a wise idea to have at least two pairs of jeans, one for every day and at least one pair for special causal occasions.

  1. Hi Patricia!

    I will always go for a pair of fitting jeans that can Hugh all my curves and let me feel comfortable. And I have always been scared to order a pair of jeans online because the few times that I tried were big failures. But I am very glad to learn about your tips, to check the leg length inside and leg length outside, from the waist to the feet.

    I am not very tall, I am 5.5 inch but I have curves and most of the time I get either short or too long jeans. Do you think your tips will still apply?

    Thanks

    1. Hi! Thank you very much for checking in. Finding jeans that fit in general is always a challenge regardless of the hight, but it is even harder if you have curves. I have always had problems shopping for jeans with my hight but mainly with my curves because the length is not so important these days, jeans can be worn short too. Over the years I have gained experience in research, finding and ordering jeans online because I could not find the right jeans in stores, online was my only option. The tips I mentioned are the step I personally take to get it right. If you check in the article now I have updated the information about the measurements. 

      If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask, 

      Best regards

  2. Jeans makes curvy women look cute and I have intention to get a few jeans for my woman in no distant time. I want to use it to surprise her and she will be short of words. She loves Jean.

    My concern is if I will be able to detect the very good ones when I see them online.

  3. I completely get you on the jeans shopping end! I am 5’8″ and I would always dread having to shop for jeans. They just tend to fit weird and I’m picky, which is a tricky combination to work with!

    I appreciated your explanations of the difference between denim and jeans, I’ve always just lumped them into the same category.

    I am definitely guilty of looking at prices first. I tend to lead out with my wallet, but I have found over the years that quantity is NOT quality! Years ago I had a friend that had a great influence on me and my jeans-buying habits. She helped me “see the light” on finding jeans that make you look and feel great. Yes, they cost a bit more but I felt SO much better. It was totally worth it!

    Thank you for sharing your tips and information! You are correct, there are important things to consider before shopping such as size and color. Knowing what you’re looking for can make it a much better experience! 

    1. Thank you for reading my article. Yes! I have decided to write an article about jeans. I hardly know anyone that just went out there and got the right jeans. We all have a few jeans that we bought in a hurry and are just laying in our closet just worn once or twice or never.  My experience with buying jeans is to take the time, set a price that I want to spend and then go on the quest. Jeans are like a good friend you got to love them or they will get on your nerves. Thank you very much for your comment.

      Best Regards
