We. Love. Jeans. But finding the best fitting jeans with the style we want is a major challenge.
So when French brand Sézane described their cult-favorite denim jeans as being “magic” with the “perfect cut”, I had to see if these jeans lived up to the hype! In my on-going search for amazing jeans, I just had to know, are the best fitting jeans for women found in France?
It’s All About the Fit
No matter what the current fashion trend, no matter what the season, jeans will always be a staple in our wardrobes. Jeans are comfortable and versatile and sexy and basically go with everything. What’s not to love?
Did you just say “finding a pair that fits properly!” in your head? Ya, I hear ya. Finding jeans that fit the way we really want them to while also being the style we’re looking for can be daunting. And though the denim industry seems to be improving as far as offering more sizing and style options, finding the perfect pair is still no easy task.
According to Statistic Brain, of the 1.24 billion jeans sold annually worldwide as of 2016, it was the way the jeans fit that was the top purchase driver for denim jean shoppers. I couldn’t agree more, because let’s be real, if your derrière doesn’t look good in them (no matter what brand they are) you’re not wearing them.
So when I recently visited the gorgeous website of French brand Sézane and saw their drool-worthy jeans with the following description, I knew a full review was in order!
“THIS IS IT. THE MAGIC SLIM – THE JEAN YOUR BODY WILL FALL IN LOVE WITH. THOUGHTFULLY CONSTRUCTED, IT FEATURES THE IDEAL RISE AND PERFECT CUT TO MAKE EVERYONE FEEL FABULOUS” – Sézane
My first introduction to the French brand Sézane was when they did a beautiful denim collaboration with Madewell. Madewell is a U.S. based denim and clothing brand with some serious denim credentials (and also my personal favorite!).
If you’ve never heard of Sézane before, I highly recommend that you check out their website here. No really, you should, I’ll wait, if for no other reason than to be inspired by an amazingly styled and curated brand that includes clothing, accessories and housewares.
The creation of designer Morgane Sézalory, Sézane touts itself as the first French fashion brand to function entirely online. They explain that when you place an order, the item is shipped directly from their finest workshops to your home. I love that!
The photos of impossibly chic people and stunning locations are brilliant and will have you immediately searching for flights to France. You’ll probably also notice that many of the items on their website are completely sold out and wait lists are the norm. People love Sézane (with good reason!).
But what I really wanted to know, gorgeous French beauty aside, was are their “magic” jeans really the best fitting jeans for women?
Special Delivery from France
I ordered a pair of “2001 The Perfect Slim” jeans in Indigo for $125 USD in my regular size and hoped for the perfection they were advertising! They arrived quickly via courier in a large box that said “Merci” with the jeans artfully wrapped in a deep blue colored box inside. Tax and duties are included in the price if shipping to the U.S. and there are free returns from the U.S. as well!
Can I just say for the record here that buying jeans from Europe is not a normal occurrence for me! This was a huge indulgence and it felt super exciting unwrapping this special delivery. 🙂
The first thing you notice about these Sézane jeans is the color. The Indigo is a super deep, rich, blue with minimal whiskering or abrasion marks that forgo the distressed trend. The style is truly classic, which is a good thing because if you’re ordering jeans from another country, you don’t want them to quickly go out of style!
You can’t help but notice the high-quality fabric when you put these made-in-Morocco jeans on. The weight of the fabric isn’t too thick or too thin and the fabric makeup (a combo of 92% cotton, 6% polyester, 2% elastomultiester) gives just the right amount of stretch.
The fit is very slim through the hips and legs without being uncomfortable at all. They feel really good on, and friends, I mean really good. The description of these jeans having the “ideal rise” with the waist being neither too high nor too low is right on the mark. They sit right at the waist and I would agree that they’re the ideal rise.
This particular style seems to be really well suited to my non-curvy frame. But browsing the other Sézane jeans available, it seems like they have something for everyone. If you want a high-rise jean, they have a style called “1958 – The Mom Jean” and for a derrière hugging and curve-accentuating style the “1967 – The Brut Sexy” seems like the way to go.
These jeans are flattering and beautiful, no doubt, but are Sézane jeans truly “magic” and “perfection” in the fit department? Are they the best fitting jeans for women?
The Real Deal
Friends, speaking as a true jeans-lover, I’ve fallen hard for these Sézane jeans. The classic, rich indigo color, the high quality fabric, the right amount of stretch and THE FIT! I honestly can’t think of any change that I would make to improve the fit on these jeans. Yesss!
Let’s also not forget the “je ne sais quoi” appeal of wearing a well-crafted garment that shipped from one of the most stylish destinations in the world. What’s not to love?
Searching for the best fitting jeans on the market that are effortlessly stylish and beautifully constructed? Your search might just take you to France. Well, to the Sézane website, at least. The 2001 Perfect Slim jeans that I ordered did, in fact, live up to the best-fitting-jeans hype and are the perfect fit and style for me. And looking at the other denim styles offered by Sézane , you’re likely to find a style that’s right for you too.
So say “Oui!” and see for yourself if these French jeans really are the best fitting jeans for women.
