My weekend uniform has changed now that we live in Colorado. Still comfy and casual, but now most importantly: ready for the cooler weather. And nothing goes better from a day in the park to date night than the Mother Tomcat jeans I’ve already written about here (spoiler: they’re annoyingly great).

But, even on sale, Mother denim is an investment. I’ve been on the hunt for a pair of jeans that mimics what I love about the Mother Tomcats — for under $100.

Are Abercrombie Curve Love Mom Jeans A Legit Dupe For Mother Tomcats?

Little did I know all I would need to do is shop my closet. Enter the Abercrombie Curve Love High Rise Mom Jeans.

Abercrombie Curve Love High-Rise Mom Jeans are a great dupe for the Mother Tomcats. The big difference between the two jeans (besides the price – they’re under $100) is that the Curve Love High-Rise Mom Jeans have two extra inches of room in the hips and thighs. If I want a little more room to run around after my kiddos, the Abercrombie Curve Love is a no-brainer.

Fit Notes: Abercrombie Curve Love High-Rise Mom Jeans are high-rise, hit me at the ankle and are made of cotton and elastane, giving them some stretch. They are TTS for me (I’m wearing a size 30 here). For people who carry weight around their middle/hips, I find these to be much more forgiving than the Tomcats. Abercrombie Curve Love jeans are available in a number of size, length, and wash options.

So, how do the Abercrombie Curve Loves compare to my beloved Mother Tomcats? They are pretty similar overall and the choice to grab one over the other depends on what fit I’m going for. If I want a more fitted waist, I’ll rock the Tomcats. A regular complaint I’ve heard about the Tomcats is that it’s hard to find the right fit and break them in — but mine were good to go after about two wears.

Fit notes: The Tomcats are high-rise, hit me at the ankle, and are made of cotton and elastane. I find them to be TTS (I’m wearing a 30) and after a wear or two they were comfortably broken in. Mother Tomcats do come in a number of washes and go up to a size 34.

If you’re looking to achieve that Mother Tomcat look without the price tag, Abercrombie Curve Loves are IT.

  1. Ahh! I have 2 pairs of Curve love jeans and they are great (for mom jeans). I have 1 pair in my true size and one pair sized up for different looks and comfort. I don’t think mom jeans are really my best look but this article makes me understand the mother tomcat obsession a bit more.

    • Oh the Mother Tomcat obsession is REAL! But the Curve Love are so good and a great way to mimic the style without the price tag.
