Since my first-ever post on TME, I’ve been raving about Good American. I recently bought a ton of their jeans to try-on at home, and let me tell you, the results were pretty interesting.
I had been hoping to find a pair of flared jeans to add to my collection, but as it turns out, I’m not sure that style is meant for ultra-curvy 5’2″ women. Regardless, I had so much fun trying all this denim, and I even found a new pair to add to my collection!
The Hunt For A Pair Of Flares: Good American Jeans Try-On Sesh
Since there are so many sales going on right now at Nordstrom (select Good American styles on sale and up to $100 back) and Good American.com (25% off entire purchase) I knew I needed to give you all the 411 on my findings, and my opinion of the different fits. (And when you’re done, head over to our full page of other Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale finds (plus #DressingRoomSelfies.)
1 // Good Legs High-Waist Ankle Skinny Jeans
The good legs high waist skinnies fit me very, very well. I absolutely love the faux leather material. I personally love how the high-waist jeans hold everything in so well, while also giving that extra va va voom to my peaches! This fit comes in a variety of different colors, and I feel like the overall fit was great for my shape and size. The fabric has great stretch, and also high sculpting and smoothing features. If you’re looking for a good pair of faux leather skinnies, these are it!
2 // Good Curve High-Waist Fray Hem Straight Leg Jeans
This cut of GA jeans had mixed reviews, and from what I read, they seem to run small, soI sized up. I actually bought these in two larger sizes and neither worked for me. I think it’s kind of funny though since these are from the Good Curve collection. I love the color and the frayed bottoms, and the length is perfect, but clearly these are wayyy too snug! GA’s website says the fabric is “revolutionary comfort stretch fabric,” however when I read the material details they are 98% cotton hence the lack of stretch nor fit for me.
3 // Good Curve High-Waist Ankle Straight Leg Jeans
OMG y’all, I absolutely love these straight leg jeans! And I think they’re a perfect alternative to the flares trend, especially if you’re a shorty and curvy gal like me. There wasn’t a single thing that I didn’t like about these jeans. I was surprised that these fit so well since the previous pair of Good Curves I tried didn’t work at all. But boy oh boy, these were so perfect for me! Find them at Nordstrom & Good American
4 // Good Flare Jeans
When I initially ordered GA jeans, I was really hoping that I would be able to find an amazing pair of flared jeans, but TBH the flares don’t work for me at all. I am too curvy and far too short to make any of the GA flares work and would have needed to have these super hemmed. I tried these in a ripped style (sold out), black, and an ankle slit style. Regardless, I was glad I tried them because it gave me some insight into how this style of jeans really doesn’t work for shorter more curvaceous gals. That being said, I truly love how the straight leg jeans give an illusion of a more bell style cut. Find #1 at Nordstrom & Good American, find # 3 at Nordstrom & Good American
5 // Good Straight Twisted Seam Jeans
The GA straight twisted seam jeans gives me all the carpenter jean vibes and were a surprise to me. I’m typically not a fan of the carpenter jean cut, but these are pretty cute. I know GA’s are definitely an investment, but I can see these looking great as painter jeans with paint marks and scuffs to add that more well-worn aesthetic. Find them at Nordstrom & Good American
Even though I didn’t walk away with a great pair of flares, I had so much trying all of these different GA styles on and finding the right fit for me. If you have yet to try the magic that is GA jeans then I definitely recommend you do soon!
