And stiff denim is the last thing we want to wear at the end of the day, which is where Shop TODAY’s list comes in. The list includes some of the most comfortable slimming jeans available on Amazon right now. But we don’t stop there—all of our offerings are on sale right now, thanks to Amazon’s Cyber Monday deals.

To help you find the perfect pair for you and your body type, the Shop TODAY team scoured Amazon to find the top-rated slimming and shaping jeans that, according to verified Amazon reviewers and our own experience and expertise, won’t disappoint , when it comes to the comfort and mobility department.
Not only should your denim be comfortable and breathable, but it should also complement your body type and shape. When researching, we made sure to review a variety of jeans, from low-rise to pairs that come with an elastic waistband to Gen Z-approved straight-leg styles.
Full disclosure: Yes, we included jeggings in our list of stretchy jeans—but luckily, some of these bottoms are so stylish that no one will be able to tell.
Here’s our list of the best body-shaping jeans that are so comfortable you’ll want to wear them every day. Grab them while they’re still on sale!

When is Black Friday and Cyber Monday in 2022?
Black Friday is Friday, November 25. Cyber Monday falls on the Monday after Black Friday each year. This year, Cyber Monday lands on November 28, 2022.
Is it better to shop on Black Friday or Cyber Monday?
Experts say it really depends on what you want to buy, with the categories being different every year. Julie Rumhold, a consumer analyst at DealNews.com, says that some years the biggest discount on clothing was on Black Friday, but then on Cyber Monday the following year. However, RetailMeNot’s shopping expert, Christine McGrath, mentions that she generally considers Black Friday to be the best day for TVs, game consoles, toys and appliances.
