Along with the little black dress, white shirt and strands of pearls, denim jeans often rank high on list of wardrobe essentials that every woman should own. Anyone who knows me will know that I’ve long been a fan of Uniqlo’s skinny jeans for their impeccable cut, excellent fabrics and wallet-friendly price points. So, of course, I had to try the Japanese brand’s new and improved Ultra Stretch Jeans! I am pleased to report that these jeans lived up to expectations with a stretchy fabric that hugs without sagging and fits like a second skin without hampering movement.
Also, if you are like 99.9% of the world's population (myself included), and have some lumps and bumps to smoothe out, these jeans are pretty good at putting these excess bits in their place without squeezing you to death.
Not quite convinced yet? As a dutiful yogini-in-training, I decided to #stopdropandyoga to see how these jeans would measure up in pretzel poses. Click through to see more limb twisting, body contorting pictures, just because they're fun heehee.
