Most of us have spent the majority of lockdown in the ‘cosier’ section of our wardrobes, meaning comfy trackies, leggings and pyjama bottoms have all been mainstays of our housebound lockdown looks. Jeans have barely had a look in, relegated to the back of the wardrobe, but with lockdown lifting and pubs, restaurants, cinemas and more now open for business, it’s time to pull the denim back on.
With comfort having been a key aspect of our outfits for months, pulling a pair of jeans on can be a daunting prospect, which is why we’re looking to one pair in particular.
M&S’s now-famous magic shaping jeans have been hailed by many as the ‘best jeans ever’. Now, we know that 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 the magic shaping jeans, we might just have stumbled across them.
M&S revealed the new design back in February, 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.
And right now, the high waisted straight leg and high waisted skinny leg styles in the magic shaping jeans collection are both in the sale – the soft white version of both styles is just £15 (down from £39.50, that’s a huge saving of £24.50). A white jean is perfect for summer, making this the perfect time to take advantage of this excellent discount.
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 with a discount as good as this, we don’t imagine they’ll stay that way for long. At such a good price, we’re considering investing in multiples…
