on a recent outing to get my daughter a new pair of jeans, we ended up at the levis store. they told us about the curve jeans and proceeded to measure her. she tried on a pair of demi curve skinny jeans and they were perfect! not only was the fit great, but they were made of a substantial 12.5 oz dark denim as opposed to the thin, lightweight denim that seems to be used so often these days. plus, even though they were lowrise, the curve jeans seemed to have a bit more coverage in the back. the salesgirl said that most people fit into the demi curve even though there are 4 curve styles to choose from. so my daughter was set. however, as the weeks passed i became increasingly curious about how the curve jeans would fit on me. i needed to try them on. and boy am i glad i did. what a fit. and less than half the price of designer jeans. i bought 2 pair in different washes. having once been a diehard 501 wearer, i am nostalgic and happy about my return to levis. check them out at www.levis.com.
