Denim has taken a huge leap into the world of fashion over the past couple of decades.  With the advent of “designer” denim brands and the opening of the high fashion world to denim jeans (and everything else), it’s no surprise that a good pair of dark wash pricey (looking) jeans are seen everywhere from your daughter’s wardrobe to Fashion Week in Paris.

However, that skit is a few years old and more behind the times than ever.  Fairly new designer denim brand called, “Not Your Daughters Jeans” is trying to break the mold for women over 30 and mothers alike.  No more pants pulled up to the armpits, no more hiding bumps and unflattering bulges with even less flattering pants.

Not Your Daughters Jeans has claimed the niche market of women who have generally opted for high-waist cuts, that while certainly are unflattering, are the lesser of the two evils when option number two is the dreaded muffin-top from low-cut jeans.  But for women who accept neither option, NYDJ is the perfect alternative.

The brand prides itself on making fashionable clothing (that’s right, not just jeans) for women who can’t afford to spend enough time in the gym for it to be considered part-time work, and for women who have children and have found their bodies just don’t go back into quite their pre-baby shape.

Not Your Daughters Jeans prides itself on providing low-rise jeans that eliminate saggy legs and unflattering rears for women who still want some snugness in the right areas without running the risk of muffin-ing over their belt loops.  The lycra/cotton blend promises to give just enough fit without too much squeeze that will definitely take the “mom” out of jeans of mothers cross-country.

While on the pricier side (average $80-$100) and sold at higher end department stores, these jeans keep their shape remarkably well and are undoubtedly worth the extra cost since you won’t replace a pair for years.  If the price is still to steep, with some careful hunting of bargain stores like Marshall’s and Loehmann’s, you should be able to get a pair at a discount and enjoy all glorious perks of the cost.



Here is a link where you can buy one for yourself that is a skinny leg, or find another style to fit your body.

  1. Mrs D says:

    I love these jeans – I discovered them about four years ago and had to buy them in the US – thankfully they are now in the UK – I also love they are a family firm who make them.
    If you only have one pair of jeans but they make you look and feel a million dollars then these are the ones and if you work out cost per wear they are very cheap

  2. Neicy says:

    I have heard much about these jeans, and I’m happy for those who have made the purchase and have found them to be wonderful for them, but for me I can’t see me paying that prcie for a pair of jeans.

  3. Mary Clark says:

    I’ve never really worn jeans a whole lot. Always had trouble finding a pair that looked good and felt good on me. So..after having weight loss surgery I will be on the lookout for some good looking jeans that feel good. If these jeans do both…and really really look good on me..I might pay that $80-$100. Not that I want to…but when you find something that fits good…you buy it!

  4. Cathie Beck says:

    My favorite jeans are Levi 501′s, but I do have other Levi jeans for women that fit well and are comfortable, plus they cost much less than the Not Your Daughter’s Jeans. ;oD

    I’ve tried on this brand of jeans – they’re great!

    You look FABULOUS! Yana!

  6. Eva Pasco says:

    I am partial to Gloria Vanderbilt jeans and often get them discounted. I’ve heard nothing but good things about Not Your Daughter’s Jeans and though I wouldn’t spend that much on a pair, the more power to those who do. You can’t put a price on feeling confident, so if they do the trick, they’re worth it!

  7. Vikki says:

    I have heard of these jeans and have been wanting to try them on….

    BTW I LOVE those Boots!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. LoveOrHateDebate says:

    @ Vikki, boots are my new thing, I love the fact that they are almost flat, warm and comfortable. :)

  9. Kyah says:

    I’m a LL Bean Double LL with comfort waist girl, tall and curvy. Chadwick’s Jeanology comes in second place. Land’s End is third with free hemming to 36″

  10. Hello my darlin great friend, I love demim and always wear jeans, if I had cash I would buy all the coolest stuff, clothes has always been my thing, now it is writing, but you are a hip girl, when we have teens at home it keeps us young. I adore you and your thoughts, keep writing, love & peace darski

  11. Mary says:

    You look fantastic, Yana!…yes, I did look at these on Zappos and if I can find them at a more reasonable cost, then I am purchasing a pair!:)

  12. Carole says:

    LOVE the NYDJ’s. I have only one pair of them, but they are the jeans I always reach for. Maybe Santa will bring me another pair…?

  13. Fortunately, I can still wear my daughter’s jeans. (Well, I could if she were tall enough). I’m tall and very slender, so have no problems with the low rises. I intend to stay that way! :-)

    Yana, you look mighty sexy in those jeans! Do you go out like that? Be careful you don’t stop traffic. :-)Seriously! You’re soooo fabulous.

  14. faye says:

    I wore waist high jeans in the 70s so that is what I am accustomed to. I do not like low riders. They feel like they are going to fall off.

  15. plussize4you says:

    There is nothing like wearing a comfy pair of jeans that fit perfectly as another option you can might like to check out the plus size jeans or tailor made jeans at indidenim. At plussize4you.com. you can browse over a variety of shops at one location that sell exclusively for plus size women.

  16. My wife and me have 8 pairs between us; the dark gray tonal petite 18 ” jeggings ” are my favorite. I look like my Hollywood heroes: Roy Rogers & Gene Autry. Very masculine traditional cowboy cut riding cowboy pants.

  17. This picture of the auburn haired woman/ author of this article (?) dressed in black N.Y.D.J. jeans with tall black riding boots looks almost like Duncan Rinaldo when dressed as ” The Cisco Kid “. Females want to dress as males, cowboys in particular, but not admitting to cross-dressing. Feminine women look great in menswear as long as any particular syle does not become ” associated as womenswear “, which unfortunately seems to be the case with a lot of traditional, historical menswear such as stated by me earlier in this article, slender cowboy pants with boots. Simply put: females dressing in menswear shouldn’t negatively affect / limit men from wearing the whole range of menswear as well.

    LOVE IT!

    I think that NYDJ are great, I own a pair myself. and Yana, I think you look fabulous in the picture above and far from trying to be like “Duncan Renaldo” Yes, the idea of the outfit might reflect that of Renaldo’s but women in today’s society look great wearing this type of attire. There will always be someone with an opinion regarding what an individual is wearing, but just as I believe men can wear whatever they desire, women have the right to do so too. If tomorrow I’m walking down the street and I pass a male wearing skinny jeans I am not going to accuse of him of dressing as anyone- I’ll take his style for what it is and move on with my day. To each their own.

  19. I am constantly thought about this, thanks for posting.

  20. Hi there very cool blog!! Man .. Beautiful .. Superb .. I’ll bookmark your website and take the feeds also?I am happy to search out a lot of helpful info here in the put up, we want work out extra techniques in this regard, thanks for sharing. . . . . .

  21. Reclaiming denim; if only this was true; it would mear females would have to go back to feminine garments and feminine fabrics, so even a denim skirt would be out ! Men don’t cross-dress ,so neither should females. because of female cross-dressing is the main event in their life, they even have a total range of fashion variables within historical menswear , more than males ; the normal owners & wearers of these masculine garments.

  22. I am going to instantly seize a person’s rss or atom because i cannot in locating your own e-mail subscription web page link or perhaps news letter company. Conduct you’ve almost any? Make sure you well then, i’ll realize in order that I could subscribe. Thanks.
