D is for… DENIM And when we talk denim, we talk Beauty in Curves Jeans. Available in UK sizes 10 to 22 (although working on extending their offering), this is a premium denim brand that loves your curves. Designed to hug your body like a second skin, the snugger the fit the better the secret-sculpt effect. Using the finest quality stretch denim, the jeans mould to your body, while the specially designed and developed ‘secret sculpt system’TM does all the work. With a high cut waist that smooths, lifts and loves your curves to create a great hour glass shape, as well as a contoured waist band to prevent that gaping at the back that makes buying jeans so hard. Available in blue and black, in 3 leg shapes – skinny, ankle slim and bootcut, this is a brand that provides the classic wardrobe staple that you can build the rest of your outfits around. Expect a good wiggle when getting into your first pair, but while they do give, like all jeans, the thicker denim and design detailing means that these jeans will last longer and not lose their shape.
We have seen many women converted to BC Jeans and we expect we will see quite a lot more.
