New term that came from my 15 year old today. There is even a description!! YIKES. I guess I'd better get with it.
Mom jeans is a humorously pejorative term for a specific type of fit of women's jeans, considered to be both unfashionable, and unflattering to the wearer's body shape. This style usually consists of a high waist (rising above the belly button), making the buttocks appear disproportionately longer, larger, and flatter than they otherwise might. It also tends to have excess space in the zipper/crotch and leg areas. The jeans are usually in a solid, light-blue color, with no form of stone washing or fading. Other attributes of the style often seen are: pleats; tapered legs; and, elastic waistbands. The style is often accompanied by a blouse or shirt that is tucked into the jeans. This style of jeans was popular with women in the United States until the mid 1990s, when lower rise jeans started to became fashionable.
NSV this week, back in August my size 18 jeans were too small. They were so uncomfortable. My size 22's were even snug.
Well today my size 18's are baggy. I might have to see how far off from the 16's I am! :) Apparently they are Mom jeans. And apparently it has been a really long time since I have worn them. Because even my husband commented with, "WOW! When was the last time you wore those???" Apparently it's been like 15 years since I wore these jeans. LOL. I've never been real hip on fashion.
So I feel old because of my "Mom Jeans" but I feel great getting into jeans I haven't worn in forever and having them be baggy!
