Levi’s Superlow Bootcut 518 Jeans is the best pair of jeans that I’ve bought. They are modern, sexy, comfortable, great for women without a lot of curves, and most importantly affordable at around $45 a pair.
The first reason why I love this pair of jeans is because of the way they fit. I’m a size 2 and have minimal curves so I wanted a pair of jeans that didn’t contain spandex (also known as stretch when used in denim) because it gives women with smaller frames or boyish figures absolutely no support or structure. The only problem is that the majority of women’s jeans on the market are made with the stretch blend, because it’s better for the average woman with curves. It gives her a lighter, more comfortable jean and smoothes out her curves without the boxy, heavy appearance of older non-stretch jeans.
So after searching a few department stores for jeans with no spandex, to no avail, an assistant at a Levi’s Store found this pair of non-stretch, 100% cotton jeans for me. They fit me really well, and enhanced my curves, instead of minimizing them. When I wear them I feel supported, even after wearing them countless times. Even though they’re made from just cotton they are very lightweight. Though they do feel stiff when first bought or after washed. Yet after walking around for a few minutes, they loosen up substantially and become really comfortable, while still maintaining a great fit.
The cut of the jean is great and it makes me feel sexy. It has a low-rise waist that hits at the hip. Though I’d prefer a slighter higher rise to help give the appearance of longer legs, this rise isn’t so low that your belly will show while wearing a top, or that your butt crack will be exposed. The boot cut is really more of a straight cut because the flare is only slight, which makes them really versatile. They’re suitable to be worn with heels, boots, and flats. Though it makes my butt look more attractive than a lot of other jeans I do wish that the back pockets were slightly smaller and were able to give my tush a little bit more lift.
The dark wash on the jean is fabulous. It fades slightly on the front legs, pockets, and the ankles. The fade is a blend of an antique wash with a few lighter threads thrown into it, which serves to make the jean seem lived in. Along the perimeter of the back pockets and the waistline of the jean there are small areas that are distressed, which rough up the jean a little and give it some interest. I even realized a few weeks after I bought my first pair that there is a pale pink stitching along the waistline, and pale green stitching along the button opening, which gives it a designer touch. For all its details the jean doesn’t at all come across as tacky or cheap looking, it actually looks way more expensive than it actually is.
If you want a great looking, fun, quality pair of jeans, in a world where they now sell for $150 and above, then save your money and try this pair.
