There’s never been a weirder time to buy jeans. As if finding the right fit wasn’t already hard enough, Gen Z was set to blow up denim style by bringing back the baggy silhouette from the 90s – replacing the skinny jeans we’re finally getting used to seeing everywhere (but were) t always wearing ).
Baggy jeans can be hard to navigate when you reach a certain age, especially if your goal is to look slim. The good news is that there are many slimming jeans that are somewhere in between baggy and skinny styles. We did some denim digging on Amazon and found more than a few styles that Amazon shoppers are praising for their slimming capabilities—some of them are even on sale!

“These are the only jeans I buy now. Stretchy enough to be a tailored fit that’s graceful and modest,” shared a happy shopper. “My waist is small compared to my hip size and these fit well around the waist – no gap at the back. They’re high, which I prefer over low, which can reveal too much anatomy when I bend over to pick something up.”
“I love these jeans!! I’ve worn them almost every day since I’ve had them, they’re so comfortable,” wrote a rave reviewer. “The fabric is stretchy but doesn’t feel cheap like other stretchy jeans I’ve bought. The fabric looks just like regular Levi’s denim. They look great from the back and front, but I wish there was a slimmer belly panel in the front so they looked better from the side. They’re tight enough at the bottom of the leg to look great with boots tucked in or with a little roll and tennis shoes. Overall, a great pair of jeans!!”
Lee Flex Motion Regular Fit Bootcut Jean
Cotton, polyester, rayon and spandex work together to make these boot jean super soft. They feature a mid-rise, regular fit and a flexible, non-binding waistband for comfort. More than 4,000 five-star fans have turned these pants into jeans.

“I found that the ONLY jeans that fit in any way were the expensive ‘Lucky’ jeans… but not anymore!!!!” wrote one very excited buyer. “They are great and the price is so reasonable! A perfect smooth fit that isn’t too short in the crotch or waist. The lift is comfortable and looks good. They really are a ‘move with you’ jean – stretchy but not so much ‘rough’ looking cheap and these are slimming!”
“Great jeans,” wrote a happy buyer. “Perfect fit for me. They get rid of my muffin top – they definitely make you slim. They have just the right amount of stretch where you need it.”
“The search is over,” wrote a five-star fan. “Even though I moved up a size due to weight gain, these pants are instantly slimming and fit just right. Very comfortable and yet I can feel the extra support on my inner thighs and bottom. My only wish is that they came out a little higher in the waist. Otherwise they are perfect!”
NYDJ Marilyn Straight Jeans
Designed to elongate your legs, these straight leg jeans also use a special slimming panel to help lift and smooth the front for a slimming look. Nearly 3,000 five-star fans can’t get enough of them.

“With age comes unwanted body changes and jeans just don’t fit like they used to,” complained one satisfied buyer. “I have a closet full of jeans that ‘should’ fit but never get worn because they don’t. Enter NYDJ. What an amazing fit and flattering look on my middle aged figure! I ordered a size 8 but could probably get away with a 6 if I wanted them to be tight. Paired with a casual white button down shirt, black blazer and heels, the jeans made me look and feel young again. The deep black color adds an extra slimming effect.”
“These lovely jeans are so comfortable,” raved a five-star fa. “I wore them to church with boots and the length is perfect. They’ve slimmed down so amazingly I can’t get over how they make me look so small and curvy and I’m not curvy!😊 I’m a NYDJ girl and these are even better. Stretch fabric maintains a great shape and the crisp midsole stays wrinkle-free. A lovely flexible belt that doesn’t give a bun top and can be dressed up or down. Casual or elegant! Elegant and clean. I am transformed!!! EXPRESSIVE shape and incredibly figure flattering!! Come on!”
“I’m very happy with these jeans,” wrote a happy customer. “They are well made, fit me perfectly and are easy to care for. I am 5’5”, 150 lbs and have a small pot belly. They make me look a little thinner than I really am thanks to the taller height. They hit me just below the navel. They have just enough to be comfortable without being too stretchy.”
“These jeans are awesome!” raved one five-star fan. “I’m short and chubby but these jeans make me look so thin. They are so comfortable and the length is perfect for me!!! My husband said they fit me great and wants me to buy more, but I already have both colors!”
“These will be your sexy jeans,” promised a five-star fan. “I bought a pair of these a few months ago and fell in love with them. They are my “good butt/slimming” jeans and give me a little extra confidence as I journey to shed a few more pounds. they’re perfect for those of us with a little pooch and make your butt look great. The stretch is GREAT – the jeans actually move with your body. Jeans usually make you feel like THEY are wearing YOU. But not these.”
