There’s never been a weirder time to buy jeans. As if finding the right fit wasn’t hard enough, Gen Z is set to blow up jean style by bringing back the baggy silhouette of the ’90s — replacing the skinny jeans we’ve just become accustomed to.
Dealing with baggy jeans is difficult 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 between baggy and skinny styles. We did some denim digging on Amazon and found more than a few styles that Amazon shoppers praise for their slimming abilities—some of them are even on sale!

“These are the only jeans I buy now. Stretchy enough to be a dressmaker, nice and modest,” said one happy shopper. “My waist is small, compared to my hip size, and these fit well in the waist—no gap in the back. They’re a high rise, which I prefer over the low-rise kind that can reveal very anatomy when I bend over. to pick something up.”
“I love these jeans!! I have worn them almost every day since I got them, they are so comfortable,” wrote one 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 slimming belly panel in the front so they looked better from the side.They are quite narrow in the lower legs so they look great with a bootie or a little roll and tennis shoes.Overall, a great pair of jeans!! “
“The ONLY jeans I’ve found that fit in any way are the expensive ‘Lucky’ jeans….not anymore!!!!!” wrote one very excited shopper. “These are great and the price is so reasonable! Perfect flattering fit that isn’t too short in the crotch or waist. The fit is comfortable and looks good. They really are ‘move with you’ jeans — stretchy but not so ‘bulky’ it looks ‘loose’ and these are slimming!”
“Great jeans,” wrote one happy shopper. “Perfect fit for me, they get rid of the muffin top which definitely slims you down. They have just the right amount of stretch if you need it.”
“Search is over,” wrote one five-star fan. “Despite having gone 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 butt. My only wish is that they came out a little higher at the waist. Otherwise they are perfect!”
“With age comes unwanted body changes and jeans just don’t fit like they used to,” complained one satisfied shopper. “I have a closet full of jeans that are ‘supposed’ to fit but never get worn because they don’t. Enter NYDJ. What an amazing fit and flattering look on my middle-aged frame! I ordered a size 8 but sure I could have gotten away with a 6 if I wanted them to be skin tight. Paired with a white button up shirt, a black blazer and heels, the jeans made me look and feel cool again. re. Intense Black adds a bonus Debilitating Effect.”
“These gorgeous jeans are so comfortable,” said one five-star fan. “I wore them to church with boots and the length is perfect. They are so amazingly slimming that I can’t get over how they make me look so petite and curvy, and I’m not curvy! which holds a great shape, weight and cool medium fabric that stays wrinkle free. Great flexible waistband that doesn’t give a bun tip and can be dressed up or down. Casual or dressy! Classy and cool. I’m a convert!!! Amazing fit and incredible figure flattering!! Wow!”
“I was very satisfied with these jeans”, wrote a happy customer. “They are well made, fit me perfectly and are easy to take care of. I am 5’5″, 150 pounds and have a bit of a belly. These make me look a little thinner than I actually am thanks to the higher rise. They hit me just below the stomach. They have enough give to make them comfortable without being stretchy.”
“These jeans are amazing!” greeted a five-star fan. “I’m short and fat – these jeans make me look so slim, they’re so comfortable and the length is perfect for me!!! My husband said they look great on me and wants me to buy more, but I already have two colors!”
“These will be your sexiest jeans,” promised one five-star fan. “I bought a pair of these a few months ago and fell in love with them. They are my ‘good butt/skinny’ jeans and give me some confidence on my journey to lose a few extra pounds. The rise is perfect for them of us with a little pocket, and oh they make the rear look amazing. The stretch is AMAZING—the jeans actually move with your body. Usually jeans make you feel like they’re wearing YOU. But not these.”
