I just ordered this pair of Rag & Bone Dre jeans, which I already own in this blue wash, and which might just be the best pair of boyfriend jeans out there for women with hips such as myself. The fit is loose but not sloppy, and the cut is just a touch slimmer than your typical boyfriend style, which I appreciate.
Absolutely 100%. Been wearing mine all weekend! Probably shoulda coulda sized down but….nope. I’ve finally evolved into Dressing to make myself happy!
I should’ve read the comments before I posted. My head isn’t on straight!
Andrea – these look great but i’m a little scared of the low rise; i normally go for the 9.5 or so mid rise…so do these feel really low to you? Also, I wear a 28 in Frame jeans — any idea how Rag and Bone’s compare, size wise…and wondering if you suggest going true to size, or sizing down?
Love these! Does Rag & Bone tend to fit on the larger side? I’m kind of between sizes in certain grands right now.
Mama Val – in a comment a week or so ago, you mentioned you lost a significant amount of weight. Any advice? I’m struggling.
Hi Liz! I’ve struggled with my weight for a LOOONG time and not that I think I have all of the answers, but I’ve found the answer for me in the WW app. I’m focused on my health and not a number, which seems to have made all of the difference in the world to me! That, and taking a nice walk every day. I hope it can work for you.
Thank you so much for the WW app suggestion – I will try it! And a walk every day sounds doable. I’m happy for you!
100% agree on these jeans and might just need another pair! Been wearing mine all weekend I probably coulda shoulda sized down but…nope. I’ve evolved finally into dressing for myself now 🙂
I have 4 pr of Rag and Bone jeans––some Dre––some not––some my regular size––some I had to size down (and those are still loose, but don’t fall off) so if ordering I’d order both your regular size and a size smaller just in case. And, yes, they are mostly the jeans I wear. LOVE THEM.
These jeans are LIFE! I wish they had more washes – would love a dark grey or black. I have the lighter color – will buy these. They have the ideal slouch and feel very modern.
Ordered the lighter wash because the inseam is purportedly shorter. Will see….
Everyone seems to love the Dre, but the low waist has always put me off — remembering the body dysmorphia of the 2000s, and how low-rise jeans would always create “love handles” where realistically there were none. Do these not do that? You’ve got me really intrigued by the endorsement for women with hips such as myself (me too)!
I know exactly what you mean, Elisabeth. For me and my body if the jean is a true boyfriend cut they fit high in the back and lower in the front. Some lower cut jeans do not have that rear end high rise so they fit low all the way around the body and when they are low all the way around the body you get “love handles.” At least that has been my experience with my body. Hope that helps!
Would love more cute pants reccos for us ladies with hips! Thanks Kim!
I’d love some advice on hem length for these jeans. I have a pair that I cuff so they are ankle length but that’s probably not a good look? Should I hem them to that length? Also, if I leave them un-cuffed, they reach just to the top of my foot. Is that too short? And what shoes or boots should I wear?? So many questions …
I will be interested in the answers to these questions, although I am not wearing jeans often these days. Personally I think if one is a person who really wants to look nice, you have to hem based on the shoe, which means multiple pairs of the same pants (or, I suppose, tape? but then you get that line on the fabric anyway). I am not currently such a person, but sometimes wish I were. Having said all that, cuffs do not bother me in the least. So, really, I am not all that helpful.
Tall person here. Well, tall-ish (5’8″). I love a good slightly sloppy cuff or a hem turnup. I think it’s the pants version of casually rolling your sleeves. An insouciant, too cool to care, if you will.
The only thing I miss about having to go into the office is stopping into the Goodwill next door, where you could always snag Rag and Bone jeans for $20. Their jeans are so good.
Cute! Now you own two items of clothing in multiple colors…
I’m pretty sure this jean is not made for women with my size hips but that’s okay. These days, I’m shopping my closet. No need for new jeans when I so rarely wear the ones I own now.
??? I think we need a replay. I am not sure any harm was meant. Although, I could be wrong. But, we do not know what size the commenter’s hips are. The commenter is talking about her own situation. Or so it seems to me.
I was confused too. I read the comment over and over and could not detect any bitchiness. I’ve written and then not posted many comments because I worried that it might come off as negative to say something that isn’t along the lines of “love this, buying it now”.
I just read my comment and realized I didn’t put that well — lots of you comment w/ more nuance. I’ve worried that saying “this isn’t for me, this is why” sounds negative, as if I’m criticizing Kim’s taste, when I’m just interested in the topic and want to join the conversation. Online is hard sometimes.
bitchy a little Wendelah?
What does “having hips” mean to people? Is it being pear shaped? Does not being sure what this means imply I don’t have them? I mean, I do, but my usual problem with jeans is they at are too big in the waist and slide down unattractively, not so much that they don’t fit in the hips. Or they would fit in the hips if they weren’t sliding down because the waist is too big.
This! For me, if they fit at the waist, they’re so often looking like sausage casings on my thighs but if they fit at the thigh they have a huge gap at the back waist. (sigh)
Great question, Joannawnyc! I don’t know what it means either. It does seem to me that when people use the phrase, they may be indicating that they think their own hips are somehow larger, proportionally, than they wish that they were. (I rather think I was cheated a bit in the hips department, but never mind that now.) What it might mean in reality, I haven’t a clue. I believe it is the case that women are supposed to have hips. Biologically, I think this is a true statement. (Just fyi, I mean no harm to people who are or were transitioning, etc etc.) I think the reason we see them less now with youngsters is all the plastics in the food supply. It is not good.
