Finding the right pair of denim can be challenging! They are either too short, too long, not stretchy enough, gap in the back, etc. I remember having the hardest time growing up because of my body type as a gymnast, and that hasn’t changed much!
So after hearing multiple people rave about Abercrombie’s denim, I decided to take it upon myself to try out four different styles to see what all the hype was about. Keep reading to hear my review on the denim I tried. 🙂
For reference, I’m 5’2” and fluctuate between 135-140 lbs. I ordered a size 28/6 short in each pair.
The Super Skinny Ultra High Rise
I put these bad boys on, and immediately fell in love. They fit me like a glove! The rise hits perfectly and sucks in just the right amount. They also have just the right amount of stretch. Oh, and the short length was perfect! All in all, I give these a 10/10!
Curve Love The Super Skinny High Rise
People legitimately rave about the Curve Love line, so I obviously added a pair to my order. I’m not sure if it was this specific wash, or the entire line, but they were not my favorite. The rise was even higher than the Ultra High Rise leaving me a little confused. That wasn’t the main sticking point for me, though. While they fit true to size, they had slight bunching in the front crotch area, and that’s just something I couldn’t move past. I rate these a 6/10.
Ultra High Rise Ankle Straight
I was the most excited for these. I’ve been on the hunt for a good pair of straight ankle denim that weren’t super loose around my knees, and again, I’ve heard rave reviews about these. I get it! These suck you in on the front and lift you up on the back, if ya know what I mean. 😉 And the wash I got is super flattering! The only problem…I ordered a short in these, as I did for all other pairs, and they are TOO short. That’s not normally a problem I have as a shortie! So, I’m going to rank these a 9/10 ONLY because they were too short. Otherwise, they are great! I’ll definitely be grabbing these in a regular length!
High Rise Super Skinny Ankle
Another winner! These are probably the least high rise denim of the bunch – they hit RIGHT at my belly button. I love the distressing on these and the fit. Just like the previous pair, they really suck you in and lift you up, all without giving you a muffin top! These also have great stretch to them. I’m giving these a 10/10, too!
I hope this was a helpful review! I love trying out new brands and testing them for you. So, if there is every something you want me to test before you buy, let me know!
