    Good Amerian Jeans Review

    I’ve been wanting to try Khole Kardashian’s Good American brand ever since I first saw she was coming out with a denim line. The idea behind this brand is that they fit girls with curves- they come in size 0-24 . While I’m not considered what most people traditionally think of as “curvy” I’m not a twig and I do have trouble finding jeans that fit me just right and that I can honestly say I LOVE.  In fact, I’ve just resigned myself to feeling like a walking potato in denim when I wear pants.

    I’m just under 5’4″ (yes, I know we’ve discussed this many times- woe is me) and have somewhat muscular legs/sturdy thighs, so most of the jeans that I see in ads or on models- just don’t look cute on me like they do on those other girls. Well I’m here to tell y’all I found the BEST jeans of your life. (If you have a skinny or slender model body, these may not be the brand for you- but if you’re like me and have an athletic or curvy build- these are PURE EFFING GOLD.)

    I will say that the sizing is a little wonky on this brand- so you’ll definitely need to try a pair on before purchasing or ordering online. I found a pair online at Nordstrom that I had been drooling over for months, and then when I got $40 of N notes in the mail, I decided to go in and pull the trigger.

    There are two Good American “fits”. One is the “Good Waist” and the other is the “Good Legs”.  I purchased the Good waist pair (which I will link below) at Nordstrom, then wore them three days in a row because I loved them so much. The material is super stretchy- I even did a few squats to test them to see if they would ride down or up during movement. Those suckers are magical and stay put- didn’t cut into me or give me muffin top (I credit this to the high cut waist). The girl in the store said the Good Waist were supposed to be a little higher waisted than the Good Legs, but honestly- I couldn’t tell a difference.

    With a  such hefty price tag ($145-$185), I decided to scan PoshMark and Ebay to see if I could find another pair I liked at a discount. Score- I found a darker wash (new pair- but with the worlds tiniest hole in them) on Ebay for $79.00- then won them for a $55 bid! God, I always feel like such a gangsta when I get a good deal on something.

    The brand recommends to size down one size, and so do most of the reviews- however I really recommend trying on a pair at your local Nordy’s before purchase! For reference, I am 5’3.5, 125 lbs and usually wear a 1-3, or a 25/26 depending on brand. NEVER do I wear a 00, a 0 or a size 24. In this brand, I wear a 24. These are also a little long on me, so while I am linking the pair I am wearing in the photo- the hem was different when I purchased them. Almost all jeans are super long on me, so I cut them hem on both pairs myself to my liking.

     

    So I feel like I need to mention- this isn’t an ad, and I haven’t been paid to do a review on this brand. I just really wanted to share with you girls who may also have trouble finding jeans they love. We all deserve to have a pair of jeans in our life that make us say “damn, I feel good in these!” and these are that pair for me! I also wanted to share with y’all what these look like on a person without that tradmark K.Dash Bootie. (I WISH!)

    I know they are a little pricey- and it usually kills me to buy designer items like this, but this purchase was worth it in my opinion. Like I mentioned, if you can’t pull the trigger on the full price pair- use a Nordstrom note (if you’re a frequent shopper) or go in and try a pair on to find your size and then browse around online!

    I hope this review gets you gals as excited for fall denim as I am!
