Tracking down the best jeans on the high street is no mean feat: but judging by the comments made by Marks & Spencer customers who’ve tried their new magic shaping jeans, we might just have stumbled across them.
M&S revealed the new design, which comes in both straight and skinny leg options, on its official Instagram account, declaring ‘your new favourite jeans have arrived’. And although they look like a standard pair on the model, this is some seriously hardworking denim; the high-waisted style promises to give you the silhouette you’ve always wanted, thanks to some pretty clever technology.
The fabric on the jeans is a unique bi-stretch denim, and it’s been kitted out with a no-gape waistband and shaping darts to give a close, flattering fit on figures of any shape. The staple trousers are available in black and two different shades of indigo, so no matter what wash you prefer, there’s likely to be a shade you’ll love.
The sizes are also pretty inclusive compared to many of the store’s high street competitors. It runs from a 6 to a 24 with a choice of three different leg lengths – short, regular and long are listed, although the long version has less options, with sizing from an 8 to a 20.
Now, we know that ‘magic’ may be a bold claim, but those who’ve already tried them say the jeans really do live up to their reputation.
‘At last some plain dark denim high rise straight fit. These are fabulous, so comfy and no gapping on the waistband,’ said one five-star reviewers The only fault I found was they are a bit long, I havent taken mine up I just rolled them up on the inside of the leg and they seem to stay put so I’m happy. Think I’m going to have to get the mid blue on these as well, they really are a must have and worth the higher price tag.’
‘Love these jeans hesitant at first but once on really pleased I bought them size 10 short. Extremely comfortable even sitting down! More colours please…’ said another, while a third agreed: ‘So, being an hourglass, I find it REALLY difficult to find jeans that allow for my thighs but fit my waist. I can honestly say these are the BEST jeans I have ever purchased in my entire life….. They hug everywhere in the right places; removing hip dips. I wish i could afford to buy 5 pairs of all colours.’
The M&S magic shaping jeans are in stock in pretty much all sizes as we type, but now that the secret’s out, we don’t imagine they’ll stay that way for long. At just under £40, we’re considering investing in multiples…
