Worth It: A Guide To MOTHER Super Cruiser Flared Jeans

Flared jeans are one of my favorite denim silhouettes.

I dipped my toes back into this style three years ago (I wrote a whole post in 2020 about my trusty Levi’s Ribcage flares) and have only become a bigger fan of flared jeans since then. Not because flare jeans began trending again in 2022 — and then again even more in 2023 — but because they’re universally flattering, leg-lengthening, sophisticated and fun. 

Flare Jeans That Keep Getting Better: The Beauty of MOTHER Denim’s The Super Cruisers

Jeans from our beloved MOTHER Denim are an investment. Over a year ago, I decided to go for it with The Super Cruiser flare jeans — there has yet to be a month since then that I haven’t worn them. 

I cannot recommend them highly enough.

What’s So Special About MOTHER The Super Cruiser Flare Jeans?

Aside from giving a pretty good bum (ask my husband) — as do most MOTHER jeans — there are other cool things about them. I wore a snug bodysuit so you could better understand the fit. Let’s check them out.

The Rise (10.25 inches): While The Super Cruisers are a high-rise, it’s a comfortable high-rise. Almost mid-rise, if you have a long rise like me. The 10.25″ on my long rise barely makes it to my belly button, but if you have a short rise, these are perfect without being too high.

Prefer a lower rise? Try this mid-rise style.

10.25 inches that come just under my belly button. This will vary depending on your specific rise.

Compared to my beloved MOTHER The Tomcat jeans, The Super Cruisers are slightly higher with a zipper instead of a button fly.

The Fabric: This specific wash of MOTHER The Super Cruiser has 98% cotton and 2% elastane, and I’ll explain why this is one of the best fabric compositions for the best fit. 

It is not a secret that letting cotton mold into your body will give you one of the best fits. I’ve done this with my rigid Levi’s for YEARS. But let’s be honest; only some people want to do a whole breaking-in process. That’s when the 2% of elastane comes in to get the best fit faster.

Flared jeans can come close to a wide leg or a bootcut, which allows for more possibilities. But the silhouette I love the most for the perfect flared pair is a snug fit from hips to above the knee, followed by a visible flare without being too dramatic.

Yes, they still feel slightly snug at the beginning, but once the cotton has given, they will be perfect, and they’ll only give the ideal amount thanks to the elastane keeping a level of recovery. 

Also, higher-end low-stretch or rigid denim tends to be softer from the first wear and break-in faster.

The Flare: Flared jeans can come close to a wide leg or a bootcut, which allows for more possibilities. But the silhouette I love the most for the perfect flared pair is a snug fit from hips to above the knee, followed by a visible flare without being too dramatic. 

The Length (33.75-inch inseam): I’m only 5’1,” so some cutting was involved. The MOTHER The Super Cruiser 33.75″ inseam is perfect for tall women. So yes, if you’re not that tall you can chop them off and leave a raw hem or have them professionally hemmed to your liking. I left the raw hem, but I’m considering attaching the original hem to change the look this year – it will not change the current length. 

Tip: Since I only wear low heels for the most part, I can get away with wearing these with sneakers by adding a height-increasing wedge. 

The Sizing (True to Size): I’m wearing a size 27. Remember that if they feel slightly snug initially, they will loosen up as they mold to your body – they stretched to fit my hips and thighs.

The cost per wear for MOTHER denim is  low right no -- they're definitely worth getting professionally hemmed if you don't want the distressed hem.

I even wore them for a photo shoot for my forthcoming website.

After one year the MOTHER denim Super Cruisers have stretched to mold my body & fit even better with each wear.

So like I said, these jeans have been on rotation for over a year now in all seasons (except in extreme summer or winter temperatures). After one year, I can also say they have molded to my body and fit even better.

The cost per wear is very low right now, and they’re definitely worth getting professionally hemmed if you don’t want the distressed hem.
