Those poor, maligned "mom" jeans. They were supposed to prevent muffin top and camouflage hips, butts and thighs — all the while remaining stylish. But it all went horribly wrong — until now.
Today, there are myriad denim styles to help hide whichever body part(s) are not behaving the same way they did during those pre-pregnancy years. However, it still takes time to find the perfect pair; you definitely have to try on several. But just like a wedding gown — and a spouse, for that matter — you know when you've found "the one."
Despite the rising popularity of high-end denim lines, flattering, sexy jeans don't have to cost a fortune — although paying a bit more for a style that makes you feel like a million bucks is worth every penny.
So, with a mom's specific jean needs in mind — functionality, durability, forgiving styles and fabrics, comfort, and the all-important butt-crack-concealing ability — we found some pairs that will make you feel as sexy as you did before the kids arrived. And that muffin top? Forget about it.
