The lowdown on PajamaJeans

Here is Anne’s report:
 
PajamaJeans rescue my rainy bachelorette weekend
 
This past weekend I went away to a mountain resort with my girlfriends for a bachelorette weekend. Our Toronto spring had been punctuated with record high temperatures, so we had high hopes for our weekend cottage getaway. But, wouldn’t you know, we were drenched by freezing rain all weekend.
 
I was mighty glad to have packed my PajamaJeans. Everyone who knows me knows I love yoga pants. If I’m not in a cocktail dress or business attire, you’ll find me in a pair of lululemon yoga pants.
 
I like the look of jeans for casual events or even a night out on the town. They look cute paired with heels and a glam sequin top. The only problem is finding a pair that is both comfortable and flattering when you are curvy and petite. I have a few pairs of “jeggins” – the cute marriage of jeans and leggings. But I feel like I am cheating and that my jeggins are screaming out that I can’t pull off a real pair of jeans.
 
If you have also felt this way, I think you’ll find that PajamaJeans are the ideal compromise. They combine the look of jeans with the coziness and forgiving fit of leggings or yoga pants.
 
They’re great for travel. I also stuffed them in my suitcase when attending a conference recently, and they simply refused to wrinkle. They are made from a denim that is a blend of cotton and spandex. It is supple and stretchy, yet holds the slightly more structured shape of denim. The inside of the pants is brushed with a fabric that is soft and warm, so they kept me cozy all weekend without overheating me. 
 
PajamaJeans come in two styles: boot cut and skinny. They also come in a lovely dark wash hue that is easy to dress up. While I thought that the skinny cut looked very glam on the website, I find that boot cut is more flattering on petite, curvy figures like mine. The stretch and the more relaxed fit work with curves, not against them!
 
The jeans have brass rivets, a mock fly and high contrast stitching, so they really do look like a nice pair of jeans. I dressed mine up with a chiffon top when it was time to hit the local bars.
 
The boot cut has a slightly more relaxed fit, so if you are looking for that “painted-on jeans” look, go for the skinny cut. The boot cut also features a slightly higher waist. I personally like this because it prevents the capital sin of jeans — muffin top – without looking like “mom jeans.”
 
They are available in eight sizes ranging from XS to 3XL, and there is a good online sizing guide.
 
PajamaJeans retail for $39.95. You can order them at www.pajamajeans.com.
 
I give them thumbs up and recommend them especially to those of us ladies who find jeans tricky or uncomfortable.
