Team Try-On: Abercrombie’s Curve Love High-Rise Mom Jeans

18218

Welcome to our brand new monthly series where we rally the crew to try on the SAME pair of jeans. A Jean of the Month, if you will. (How fun, right??)

Because we’re all big-time Abercrombie fans over here, we figured their Curve Love High-Rise Mom Jeans would be a really great choice to kick things off since they’re available in 8 washes and sized 23-37W (short, regular & long!). We love how the entire team rocked these — many loved them, and for others, they might not be quite right, but either way, we hope this helps as you shop. And if you didn’t already have a feel for Abercrombie jeans, maybe you’ll find they’re worth a try…many of us seem to think so.

Amy’s Take On Abercrombie Curve Love Mom Jeans

Amy Says: Guys, I have zero curves — just look to any of my posts where I’m wearing leggings and you’ll see I have a nice boxy frame. I knew I loved the regular Abercrombie Mom Jeans, so I was curious to see how this Curve Love compared.

Details: I’m 5’9″, have zero curves, and am wearing a size 29 in Abercrombie’s Curve Love High Rise Mom Jeans, medium wash.

Oddly enough, I like this one more! I think it’s because these jeans offer a little extra room in the hips and bum, giving me a looser fit than regular mom jeans. I love when the waist of a jean is fitted and the rest kind of falls around my body — major score! This medium wash has a perfect ’80s vibe, and I loved the raw hem, too.

Meredith’s Take On Abercrombie Curve Love Mom Jeans

Meredith says: I was a little nervous after hearing the fit issues some of the shorties were having, but on this 5’7 lady they are PERFECTION!

Details: I’m 5’7″ and am wearing a size 30 in Abercrombie’s Curve Love High Rise Mom Jeans, light ripped wash.

I typically size up for Abercrombie jeans, but decided to go with my normal size (30) for these Curve Love High Rise Mom Jeans, and they fit like a glove — a comfy glove. The wash & length is perfect for spring, and I love the distressing. The denim is a bit thicker, so I’m not sure how long I’ll wear these into the spring/summer, but they are perfect for these 60-70 degree Texas days. Plus, this cropped top is so fun and comes in a few different colors/patterns. I don’t feel like a regular mom — I’m like a “cool mom” (Amy Poehler wink).

Every time I attempt a “butt shot’ I feel like I look like a little kind being sent to the corner to think about what she’s done.

Julieta’s Take On Abercrombie Curve Love Mom Jeans

Julieta says: The fit of these Abercrombie Curve Love Mom jeans is perfect. Tight enough at the waist and loose enough around hips and thighs to give the perfect comfy fit.

Details: I’m 5’2″ with short legs and some curves. I’m wearing a size 26 in Abercrombie’s Curve Love High Rise Mom Jeans, dark destroy wash.

Tell me “mom jeans” and 98-99% cotton with 1-2 elastane, and I’m all yours. It’s the denim composition I love the most and get 99% of the time. With that said, there’s an issue I often run into, and that is that a lot of jeans fit me super tight around my butt and thighs, flattening my curves. They’re not huge, but I like them and don’t want to hide them. Please remember this denim composition gives 1-2 inches after a lot of wear and washing, so I went for my regular size. You can always stretch the waistband if it’s a little tight — check my Denim Highlights on my IG.

Laura’s Take On Abercrombie Curve Love Mom Jeans

Laura says: I’ll be honest, I had trouble with this one y’all. I love Abercrombie (gah, their sweatshirts are THE softest of all!) but this Curve Love Mom Jean fit is just not my jam. There’s extra room around the front area (a little hard to see in my black wash) that doesn’t quite fit my body.

Details: I have an athletic shape (strong thighs and straighter through the midsection) and short torso, but not super short legs for my height, 5’4″; I have a booty, too. I don’t have curvy hips. I’m wearing Abercrombie’s Curve Love High Rise Mom Jeans in a size 28, black ripped wash.

You can see in the back shot, too, the fit just isn’t quite right. The booty fits, but there is extra fabric underneath. I did size up as I have in their jeans in the past (I have loved their non-curve straight leg before!) so I’m not sure if a size down would have helped or not, but the team seems to think so. I love that A&F jeans are substantial but have stretch, are affordable AND are available in some really cute washes! Imma have to try that straight leg fit again!

Scotti’s Take On Abercrombie Curve Love Mom Jeans

Scotti says: I sized up to a 29 in these, and maybe I should have stuck to my regular 28. I’m wearing the 28s in this Abercrombie curve love vs regular mom jeans post from last year and loved the way they fit. This style is perfect; it leaves no gap in the waistband and extra room for hips and booties and thighs, just don’t be afraid to stick to your regular size!

Details: I’m 5’4″ and wearing Abercrombie’s Curve Love High Rise Mom Jeans in a size 29 (though maybe I should have tried my regular 28).

I thought a little extra room might get that perfect slouchy fit, but instead, I think it just added more bulk when the 28s would have stretched out and fit perfectly (like Julieta suggested above to stick to your regular size) and the extra length made the bottom confusing…do I cut it off? Do I roll? Anyway, I do love the curve love fit.

Shana’s Take On Abercrombie Curve Love Mom Jeans

Shana says: After reading reviews, I ended up sticking with my usual size 26. They’re roomier through the hips and butt, but I appreciated that they also didn’t seem to slide down as much as other pairs (thanks to the fitted waist). I’m wearing the dark destroy wash, and the denim is thick — something like a rigid jean…but yet are still soft. I appreciate the three available lengths (I’m wearing the short).

Details: I’m 5’3″ and my body type is basically a short version of Amy’s — long legs, no curves at all — so it’s never crossed my mind to try a curvy fit. Like Amy, however, I also loved these jeans! I’m wearing a size 26 in Abercrombie’s Curve Love High Rise Mom Jeans, dark destroy wash.

As a bonus, I love that they actually look cute with my warm winter boots (which are all I’ve been able to wear in Vermont’s snow).

Kat’s Take On Abercrombie Curve Love Mom Jeans

Kat says: Never in a million years did I think I would be writing that I actually fit into a pair of Abercrombie jeans. My inner middle school Kat, is jumping up and down with excitement because I can finally wear what all my friends were rocking.

Details: I am 5’2 and ultra curvy. These are definitely tight on me, so I am going to try Julieta’s denim stretching trick. I am wearing Abercrombie’s Curve Love High Rise Mom Jean in a size 36, light ripped wash.

These jeans are cute, but definitely a thicker material than I would typically go for. They feel like the kind of jean that you need to keep for years and once they are perfectly worn-in, you fall in love with them. I love how they make my peaches look and that the back pockets are close together for that perfect bubble butt. But I wish they were an even higher rise in the back because my undies were peeping out. ps. these bad boys have ZERO stretch, so definitely size up.

Linzi’s Take On Abercrombie Curve Love Mom Jeans

Linzi says: These jeans are fine…good even (for mom jeans). I am just REALLY struggling with how to style any pair of mom jeans (the styling below is NOT working for me)…and struggling even more with if I actually WANT to style mom jeans. 

Details: I’m. 5’2, 135 lbs, short legs, and pear-shaped. Wearing a 28 Short in Abercrombie’s Curve Love High Rise Mom Jean (light wash with repair) but maybe should go up to a 29 for a baggier fit…and cut them a smidge shorter.

The jeans are comfortable enough, and I like the details on this wash (the mixed fading, the pretty spring blue, and the fact they’re distressed, but not too distressed). These fit in both the waist and hips (some brands don’t for my shape), but since I’m pretty curvy on my bottom half, I think I need to size up to get that true mom jean look. Or…I stick with my fav crop flares FOREVER!

Cam’s Take On Abercrombie Curve Love Mom Jeans

Cams says: I was unsure about a curve fit on me, but I was pleasantly surprised when I got these Mama jeans on!

Details: I am wearing a size 28 long (I am 5’10) in Abercrombie’s Curve Love High Rise Jeans (light wash with repair), but I think I could have gone with the 27s instead.

While I do have a bum worth mentioning (I call it my bubble butt), my hips are not curvaceous by any means, BUT the fit of these jeans still work on my rather slim hips. I assume that my height makes the extra fabric around the hips, thighs, and under the bum less noticeable. I wore these all day yesterday and was comfortable the entire day because I had room to move and I did not have to continually pull the pants up around my waist. Now, I will say that they did stretch out a bit as the day went on. Not to the point where they were slipping off, but just enough to make me wish I had gone for a size down.

I am in a tricky sizing spot right now, in between a 4-6. I have been going up to a 6 in order to be comfortable day-to-day and that has been working out, considering that I appreciate a looser, more casual fit. That said, I would have ultimately gone down to a size 4.

Jess’ Take on Abercrombie Curve Love Mom Jeans

Jess Says: For the most part, I really like these jeans. I love the unique front hemlines that give this pair of otherwise regular black jeans a little extra added pizzaz. I felt these were a little less-fitted in the hips and the legs. The fabric is on the thicker side & feels high quality.

Details: I’m 5’7″ roughly 140 lbs with a curvy frame. I have pretty wide hips and practically no bum. I’m wearing size 28 in Abercrombie’s Curve Love High Rise Mom Jean, washed black.

Em’s Take on Abercrombie Curve Love Mom Jeans

Em says: Went in with high hopes, ended up…well, I won’t say hopeless, but less enthused than some of my TME pals. But that doesn’t mean they don’t have some serious selling points (below). That said, this bodysuit rocks bigtime. Can’t think of a more flattering cut/style (and am even considering it in the white or olive, too).

Details: I’m 5’5” and ordered my usual size (25R) in the Abercrombie’s Curve Love High Rise Mom Jean (dark destroy wash), which usually does the trick in Abercrombie jeans. I’d say they fit true to size everywhere but the waist — but then again it’s entirely possible I’ve sized up in the waist since last buying a new pair. Sized up one in the bodysuit to accommodate for length. Might even suggest going up one more size if you’re long-waisted.

Things I love about these: the wash (they’re so perfectly destroyed without looking at all cheesy, really high-end vibes); the butt — in particular, the pocket to cheek ratio is v good!; and the idea of the fit. The thing is, I have a straight middle, straight hips and strong thighs, so I’m craving more room in the waist. And even though it feels like there’s ample room for my thighs and seat, I’m not sure how much attention I need to draw to my crotch given the way they crease in that area. Might have to try Julieta’s trick for stretching the waist and see if an easier fit through the middle will help things fall into line.

  1. Appreciate the contributors who included their weight along with height. Just knowing someone’s height isn’t helpful when trying to figure out how something would fit. So thanks guys!

  2. Sorry but these are not flattering at all. Mom jeans should have stayed in the 80s where they belong. Can’t wait for this silly trend to pass. Please bring back mid-rise pants!

  3. I agree…I hate this style! I have yet to see them flatter anyone as much as skinny jeans do. Sorry, but this mom will stay out of style with this trend.

  4. Thank you for this, I could not love this more! Seeing 11 different women in the same jeans is extremely helpful. I disagree that we need your weights–for me knowing your height and size is enough for me to get an idea how I compare
    . Plus I’ve been following you for so long that I know what size I am compared to most of you. I have the Ultra High Rise Ankle Straight Jeans from A&F. They are slightly higher rise and slightly larger leg opening. Excited to try these and to compare. Maybe Mother jeans next? Not sure which style, though…

  5. I would love for you to try an updated (non skinny) style that would flatter those of us without curvy hips n booties. Personally, I am quite busty, shorter waisted/longer legged. Although I curve in at the waist, my hips are straighter and my booty is flat. I always have that extra fabric under the booty that is happening to Laura in this style. My legs are athletic but lean. So the mom jeans and 90s loose jeans that are trending now do nothing for me figure wise, they just add volume at my fittest/leanest points (hips, thighs, legs). And they all feel tight in the waist! So I’d love a non skinny jean more current jean that flatters like my skinnies do. And it would be awesome if it was in the $100 or less range.

  6. So happy to see this and thrilled that Meredith joined the team, because she’s literally the same size as me. Huzzah! That being said, for those contributors that think they don’t look good… I disagree; but perhaps the definition lies with the beholder (to coin a phrase). I’m not into Mom jeans because they hit way too high in the rise and hit me in the wrong spot (long torso) but yes to boyfriend/straight leg always

  7. I love this post! It is really super helpful to me to grasp how a style will fit me and like Linzi said, gives me a better idea on IF I want to even try. So thankful for that big team effort! Also, maybe this is silly, but I love getting to read the variety of conclusions. Way to keep it real.

  8. So helpful to have height and weight ladies along with your sizing info! I’m not down with this style for my shape…and your post confirmed it for me without having to order them. Thank you ladies! Next up—any mid rise style!

  9. There must be something in the air, because I got two of these pairs of jeans (in diff sizes) in the mail the same day this article was posted! I agree that they fit well at the waist (no gap) for those of us with curvy waists, and that they are true to size. What I also realized, however, is this style is the line at which I will not cross, haha. I just…don’t like it. And I’m now old enough to know that I should wear what I love. I think it’s the high waist I hate. It digs into your ribcage when you sit. I hate that tops need to be short and tucked. I wear jeans almost every single day when I’m not in scrubs and I want them to be comfy. Apparently, for me, that’s mid-rise and 2% stretch.

    That said, this article is awesome! Thanks for trying on a pair of jeans between so many different people. It’s so cool to get such different body types and to see what works.

  10. I LOVE this style of post. Seeing so many different women in the same jeans is so so so helpful in figuring out if they might work for you. As for what next…. some magic jeans that allow those of us clinging on to skinny jeans to be somewhat trendy without making our butts too sad?
