How do your jeans make you feel? Sexy? Frumpy? Cool? Slim? Big? Young? The hottest thing on two legs even?
Well, a few days ago I received from a male friend of mine a link to this Telegraph article about how more than a quarter of British women believe fitting into an old pair of jeans again is better than sex! I think he was a little surprised, and maybe a little worried!
The survey carried out by Special K (maybe you've heard of its weight loss challenge - eat more cereal and less other stuff - well it would say that I suppose!) found that more than 35% of the 2200 women surveyed online said they had a pair of "trophy" jeans they use to fit in and kept in the hope of fitting in again. 29.1% said it would feel better than sex to fit in their old jeans, 28.9% said it would feel better than a promotion, 20.6% said it would top their best friend's wedding, 20.3% said it would be better than winning the lottery and 11.1% said they fantasised more out fitting in their old jeans than about George Clooney or Brad Pitt.
Well, it kind of rang true for me as I've recently got back into my favourite Banana Republic jeans. I'm feeling pretty pleased with myself for sure. I too kept them in the hope that they'd fit again and I've been waiting quite some time I can tell ya! But... better than sex (I suppose that depends on how good or bad your sex life is!), BF's wedding, promotion, lottery or heavens above, fantasizing over George or Brad - I don't think so! How good do your jeans make you feel?
Whilst on the subject of jeans, I also came across this lovely blog with an article on "hello! SkinnyJeans". Heard of them? Not me. But then I'm often a bit behind on what's hip and cool right now, so maybe you've all been wearing them for a year and looking all sleek and sexy and I've been looking like an overstuffed sausage! I do know that there are scores of big bucks jeans around all claiming to make you look slimmer, taller, bigger bottomed, smaller bottomed etc. But take a look at these "hello! SkinnyJeans" claiming to make you look thinner and all kinds of reasons in their design to back up their claim. And take a peek at the before and after pictures they have posted. Obviously modelled by a very slim woman anyhow, so they're bound to look good, but those SkinnyJeans do seem to smooth things out even more don't you think? Downside - they'll cost ya £140 - booo!
What about you? Any favourite jeans brand you swear by and want to share the big secret? Holding onto any old jeans (or anything else come to that) in the hope of squeezing in them again? And would that be better than sex if they did?
