For those wondering about what “mom jeans” are, they’re high-waist pants, with a sort of baggy cut on the thighs. They’re often thought of as being unflattering, but with the right top and most importantly, attitude, you can rock this style of jeans.

Hale Tess High Waisted ’90s Jean

Tess by Hale is a stylish design that come with a straight leg cut and are rounder at the hips.
It’s a rare occasion for a woman with big thighs to not have curvy hips too, so these jeans are designed to round up your hips and smooth out any less flattering bits.
Because the legs are cut straight, there is plenty of room to wear them comfortably, without worrying of undoing a stitch somewhere. Hey, no shame in that! We’ve all been there!
The pockets are five, in the classic jeans style and they are not full-length. Well not completely, anyway. Because of that, this style goes great with high heels and crop tops, for a very summer-y look.
There is one color to choose from: Senna, and the fabric is a blend of 99% Cotton and 1% Elastane.

The medium-height waist and baggy fit are a perfect touch for that carefree, casual look. Suitable to style with both tees and jackets, you will feel that hippie freedom and display it too.
The legs wrinkle at the top, which is a detail that we personally love, as it adds a touch of casualness to that elegant shirt you will wear, while looking just as good with your favorite T-shirt or crop top.
The legs are cut straight, so they are loose-fitting. Now, the really interesting part of this design is at the ankles, which are longer in the back.
This part complements both flats and heels so you will look just as good with either. They come in the color Blue.

For this reason, we compiled the following guide in order to make it a lot easier for your next jeans shopping, as it will save you time and a lot of effort.
We like these sorts of guides and tips because they are quite useful when the time to buy any new clothing piece arrives, so let’s get started right away.
How To Choose Some High Quality Mom Jeans
Choosing the right fitting pants is very tricky sometimes for many women.
Curvy ladies, in particular, have a hard time getting the right fit with most jeans because they tend to fit well on the thighs, but are too big at the waist, creating that awkward gap in the back.
It ruins the whole outfit because your top will look strange from behind and to be honest, who needs the added worry of ill-fitting clothes. We have enough things to worry about as it is, seriously!
What Consists as “Good Quality” Jeans?
Often we correlate price and quality, but that is not always the case, as we all know. Sometimes high-end brands completely miss the mark when it comes to either design or quality, at times even both, and surprisingly, brands that are very affordable can completely run the show with some fantastic quality jeans.
But what exactly should you look for when deciding on the quality of a pair of jeans?
You may have thought that the first one would be the actual quality of the fabric, but we will get to that in a second. For curvy ladies, the most important thing when it comes to jeans is their ability to provide some stretch and fit comfortably, of course.
Such is the case with mom jeans, too, despite their fit being a bit on the baggy side.
It’s easy to spot quality stretch as at most, there will be 2% of Elastane or Spandex in the label. It’s a misconception that higher percentage of elasticity is better. If anything, it’s solely an indicator of how quickly the jeans will wear out and completely loosen up.
Fabric Quality and Weight
While to most of us all denim looks alike, in terms of how it will wear and how long it will last, there is a big difference.
Typically indicated by the weight of the jeans, the lighter they are, for example under 12 oz (340 grams), the lower the quality. This is because a fabric with a lower thread count is used, meaning the weave is much weaker and as a result, it will wear out a lot sooner.
This is where it becomes a serious issue for big thighs, which tend to rub on the inner part, quickly creating rips and tears on the jeans. To avoid that look for heavier jeans, as the fabric will be a lot thicker and therefore sturdier.
Another plus of heavier and thicker denim is that it will wear a lot better on a curvy body and also help to round out, smoothen and shape the thighs quite well.
Just as important as the actual fabric quality, stitching is another thing you should really look into when buying jeans and clothes in general. After all, if the fabric won’t stay in place and hold its shape, what is the point anyway!
Even more so in the case of women with big thighs, which might run into trouble with weak stitches from time to time, especially when sitting or bending down.
Now, you don’t need to become a seamstress or have any stitching knowledge in the least, so don’t worry. Here’s how to tell if the stitching is done properly and whether it will hold or not:
- Double-stitching – this is one of the strongest stitches and it is a good indicator that the jeans are well-made and will last for a good while. You can easily tell this one by the two parallel stitches placed close to each other.
- Chain stitch – the chain stitch is the other strong stitch that holds very well and will not come undone. You should look for looping that resembles a chain in order to recognize this kind of stitching.
- Single row stitch – this kind of stitch is to be avoided as it is the least resistant to wear. However, there are instances that it will hold very well if a thick and sturdy thread is used. If you are unsure about this one, give the jeans a tug and if you see (or hear) anything amiss, move on to the next pair.
Price As a Criteria
As we mentioned previously, you don’t always get what you pay for and this can be either a good or bad thing, depending on the situation.
If you don’t really mind spending and are solely focused on finding the perfect mom jeans, then turn to designer jeans as they are most likely to be made of high quality fabric and are usually well-designed, too.
Even if you don’t intend to buy any, they will help with creating a better image and feel about quality jeans and you can put that knowledge into practice when shopping at cheaper places.
Where To Look For Quality Mom Jeans?
While online shopping certainly has its perks and the selection is abundant, we would highly recommend that you look locally first.
Thrift stores are a great choice since they often have old-fashioned clothes and mom jeans are the epitome of old-fashion. But you shouldn’t have much trouble on most stores because mom jeans have been back in style for a while now and can be found everywhere.
As for online shopping, go ahead and order away at your heart’s content but keep in mind what we mentioned above. Look at the product description and check to see if weight, fabric blend and material is mentioned.
Usually, well-made jeans have plenty of details as the brands want to show them off as best as possible.
How To Wear Mom Jeans
Let’s move on to another very important topic, that of learning how to style mom jeans where we will look at different ways to wear this type of jean.
But first, finding the right fit is the most important step as none of the following tips will matter if the jeans you have chosen don’t work for your body type.
Based on what you are going for, avoid high-cropped jeans if your legs are thick as they tend to shorten and widen them even more.
The main thing to look for, however, is how mom jeans fit at the waist. If the fit is right, no gaps or being too tight, then there is no reason for concern as they will flatter your body and round out the hips beautifully.
Mom Jeans with Boots
Cropped boots work with practically any type of jeans and that is the case with mom jeans also. You can go with either punk-style boots or high-heel ones because it’s nearly impossible to go wrong with this particular combination.
Mom Jeans with Heels
High heels are the most versatile shoes to wear because they go well with any look. They are especially flattering with mom jeans as high heels help to balance their casual vibe by adding a touch of finesse and sensuality in your outfit.
You can choose a variety of heels here, but stilettos are the best option, regardless of whether they are closed or sandals. Another great choice are chunky and low heels.
We would advise against platform heels because they will completely throw off your entire look.
Mom Jeans with Sneakers
Honestly, mom jeans and sneakers are a match made in heaven. They really bring out the best in each other as sneakers go great with the relaxed, comfortable and classic look of mom jeans.
Sneakers like Vans or other flat-bottomed ones are the best choice for this both for the comfort factor, as well as being the most flattering ones to wear with mom jeans.
Mom Jeans with Flats
Flats, especially the ones with a fabric upper go perfectly with mom jeans. Especially loafers! They are comfortable and very casual in style, so there is no wonder they complement mom jeans so well.
Mom Jeans in Winter
While mom jeans are usually cropped, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t rock them in winter.
This is where oversized sweaters and cropped boots come into play. They will make up for the exposed ankles from wearing mom jeans, while also keeping you warm and cozy as boots are wont to do.
Long jackets, such as trench coats, and especially cardigans are very flattering to wear with mom jeans due to their old-style look and cozy feel.
Tops To Wear with Mom Jeans
To make this short and sweet, all tops work well with mom jeans.
- Tank tops and T-shirts during summer are a great choice, especially when tucked in, showing off the small waist and round hips.
- Crop tops are a very casual option to go for and work best with sneakers of preferably a matching color.
- Silk shirts are another interesting choice for creating vintage looks and high heels will fit this outfit perfectly.
- Oversized tops also look great with mom jeans, in particular shirts and sweaters during winter.
- Pastel colors are not only very pleasing to the eye, but they create a beautiful combination with mom jeans and your favorite ballerina flats.
- Lastly, off-shoulder tops go with most jeans but with mom jeans in particular, they really shine. Mom jeans don’t take away the delicacy of this kind of top and help show off their playfulness and femininity.
