If your jeans always rip between your legs, you need these.
Whether it be a ripped pair, some overalls, or basic mom jeans, it feels like these pants are essential to every stylish, young Brooklyn urbanite’s uniform. I know why: I own a pair, and they fit my thick thighs better than any other pair I've ever worn.
Like many women, I have a problem where my jeans always—and I mean always—wear out and rip between the thighs. In college, I thought my thighs were abnormally thick and my mom seriously questioned my walking posture because I had to replace my jeans every single year.
The quality of my jeans wasn’t the problem. My aunt works in the Montreal fashion industry, so every Christmas, she would bring me five or six pairs of Genetic and True Religion jeans.
Although they were expensive, super-stylish, comfortable, and fit perfectly, all of them wore out in a matter of months and ripped after about a year.
Then, two years ago, a friend suggested I try BDG jeans. I bought a pair that featured rips on the knees and a dark-blue accent pocket on the back (very similar to this in-season version). They changed everything. They’re super, super sturdy, while still fitting as comfortably as a well-worn pair of sweats (well, maybe that's an exaggeration, but only a little). I love these jeans so much, I also bought a pair of BDG shorts.
After two years of heavy wear, they have only gotten better with age, showing very minimal signs of wear and tear in between my thighs.
The best part about BDG jeans is that they're affordable. The most expensive pair is $99, but the majority only set you back 69 bucks. Even better: Right now, they're on sale for buy one, get 50% off—I'm planning on stocking up on a few new pairs. I can't think of a better value in my closet right now.
