My friend Jenn was the first to discover Gap’s Perfect Bootcut jeans. So when I went looking for another pair of this always flattering cut of denim, I thought I’d give Perfect Bootcut a try.
She was right!
The secret, I think, is in two things.
First–just as in premium brands costing twice as much–there’s just enough stretch in the soft denim fabric to act like shapewear where you need it most.
Second, the waistband is wide. It wraps around your middle section like a built-in belt, adding to the shapewear effect. And it also means that even though the top edge comes up to just below the belly button (a plus to those of us with non-flat bellies, which is 99% of us, amirite?) the bottom edge starts where you’d expect the waistband on low-rise jeans to be, so they don’t look like overly high waisted mom jeans.
All of which makes them perfect for Fab Mom weekend wear, like this. Put on heels and a dramatic choker necklace and I’d be off to Date Night.
(And nope, this isn’t a sponsored post. I don’t write those. But if the Gap happened to see it and felt like sending another pair of Perfect Bootcuts my way, I wouldn’t turn them down, cough cough …
