When I showed pics of me in my new jeans to my sister, she asked if I was wearing padded undies. That’s how good these jeans make my tush look. (Yes! That is my derriere in the picture!!!) The value of a perfectly fitting pair of jeans is – well, invaluable. No shopping for hours on end, no buying pairs that sorta fit only to regret it. Just a pair that make you look and feel your best.
How did I come across these jeans? I used SearchByInseam.com, a site that helps you find a better fit for jeans and pants. It doesn’t cost anything, and you can use all the coupons and discounts you have when you finally find the perfect pair.
