Bad Girl Denim
I have never ever found jeans that were truly flattering on me. I’ve purchased “high waisted” jeans before but they have never been actually high waisted. They sit at an awkward spot that doesn’t look good on any body shape. When I saw that Vixen by Micheline Pitt was releasing denim I was extremely intrigued. She describes them as “inspired from vintage 1960’s bad girl cut with a true high waist” and I can say now that that is definitely accurate. Even on my extremely curvaceous body, they nip in at the waist and flatter all my curves.
I have a 20 inch difference between my hips and waist so I was nervous about the fit. I ordered the Regular Jeans in Dark Indigo in 46-47 with a 36 inch inseam at first only because of my concern for my large hips. But they were just way too big for me. I learned from some pinup friends that this denim would stretch over time so this size was just not going to work. I felt so discouraged when they didn’t fit me right away. Micheline herself saw my flustered post and responded herself with size advice. This personal kind of help from the owner/designer of a brand is quite rare.
I then ordered the 42-43 which absolutely fit perfectly! They cinch my waist yet aren’t too tight in the hips and they are truly high waisted! I feel like a real bad girl in this denim. I have never been comfortable in jeans let alone feel sexy in them. They are a little snug in my knee area but hopefully with wear they’ll stretch out. For right now, I look ridiculous when trying to bend over. These also give me an excuse to purchase more crop tops but for right now I’ll tie up my shirts like this. My mom saw this bee shirt from the Victoria Beckham collection for Target and knew that I would freak over it.
They are releasing shorts that are still in the pre-order stage but I know I need to get my hands on them ASAP. As well as the cigarette pants that are going to be released! This brand is converting me into loving pants and I’m not complaining. It’s refreshing to have a brand make denim that can fit the extremely curvy woman as well as a straight sized woman. I can’t wait to see what else Vixen by Micheline Pitt has up their sleeves so I can add to my collection.
