One of the only brands of jeans that I buy these days are Silver Jeans. You can only find them in the more expensive department stores like Dillards or Macy's, The Buckle, and also online at silverjeans.com.
The most recent pair that I bought were the Aiko, style #L9528. This pair was $69 at Dillards and well worth the money in my opinion. They are mid rise, relaxed fit through hip and thigh and a flare leg. What I like about these jeans is they hug my curves perfectly. I am a bit of a curvy girl and these jeans accent my curves just enough. I feel very confident in these jeans and love to wear them when I go out and even around town because they are so comfortable.
The jeans are a ink blue indigo color which is exclusive to Silver jeans and are 11oz superior textured polyester/cotton slub ringspun stretch demin. Not quite sure what that last part means but hey they are super comfy and soft so that's all that matters!
Another thing I like about Silver jeans is they are very size friendly. They come in European sizes ranging from 24 to 36. I know a 30 is equal to a size 10, so you can tell they are very generous for the slightly plus-size curvy woman.
Even if you don't want to buy a pair because they might be out of your budget; if you can I would definitely try and get to a store that carries them and try them on. You just might fall in love and be running to that cash register!
