Levis invited me for the launch of their new CurveID Jeans. Cupcakes, Pinkberry, champagne and a live DJ – PAR-teeee! And best of all, we got to try on the new CurveID jeans – after being measured for the “right” shape. Yes, this is about shape not size! Finally someone has figured it out! After being checked out and measured by a Levi’s specialist I was told that the Demi Curve would be the best shape for me (I am 1.60m tall, which is 5’4″, regular shaped – acording to the Levi’s specialist – and always wear a size 28 in Levis’) . However I still wanted to try on all 3 different shaped jeans to see how they compare.
I tried all 3 different versions in the skinny fit: The Slight Curve in a size 28 would not even come up past my hips, I would have had to upsize at least 2 sizes, so I passed! The Demi Curve I initially tried in my regular size 28 fit, but I felt that I should upsize to a 29 because they were a little too snug and not comfortable. And they are very low waisted. So, for me the 29 was a good fit, even though I felt that the waist could still have been a little higher.
The Bold Curve, well, that is a whole different story, think Brazilian woman, tiny waist, broad hips and big butts. For me, with my “regular shape” body, the zipper of the size 28 did not close, and the jeans were baggy at my hips and looked like boyfriend jeans on my legs (they were the skinny fit, remember!). The very patient and well informed Levi’s specialist (Anna, thank you so much!) also told me that if you have a big waist, broad hips and a big butt, you are better off with a regular Levis’ jeans as the CurveID won’t work for you.
Beside the three “shapes”, the jeans come in different washes ranging from black to destroyed and ripped, and basically three different fits – superskinny and straight leg, as well as a bootcut, and in the Demi they come in a skinny bootcut, too.
