After stopping at the Genetic Denim showroom last week for their press preview, the Denim Therapy girls decided to put one style of skinny jean to the test: The Shya in Dark Tin. These stretch-denim jeans hold an almost black hue, and it was unanimously voted that they’re super flattering for fall, not to mention comfortable. But how do they hold up on three different women with three different body types? Read on to find out!
What was your first thought when you tried them on?
Francine: Feel like I am wearing sweat pants… How does my butt look?
Renee: They are unbelievably soft, yet still thick enough to bypass jegging territory. They fit beautifully. We post about celebs wearing Genetic Denim a lot, and I’ve never looked at the pictures and thought that they were jeggings.
Michelle Christina: Smooth like butter! Only took a second to pull them on.
Where/when would you wear these?
Francine: Perfect for my everyday: school run, office, playground and go out for a casual dinner with friends.
Renee: These are perfect for my hectic work day, and are dark enough to transition easily into night-time.
Michelle Christina: Comfortable enough to wear at the computer while I’m working. Can definitely see myself wearing these to family holiday gatherings with oversized sweaters and lots of jewelry.
How’s the fit?
Francine: Low rise, skinny (not too tight).
Renee: They’re tight without being restrictive or uncomfortable, and the fit is really flattering. I like my jeans to sit a little bit higher on my waist (above the hip bones so that I don’t ever have to pull them up), but that’s my personal preference. They definitely have the ability to make me feel sexy while still being comfortable–Genetic Denim, I hope you know what an impressive feat that is!
Michelle Christina: Super skinny, plenty of stretch, don’t feel like they’re restraining me. Room for movement.
