Before, during, and after my pregnancy, my body changed a lot. During IVF my abdomen was swollen and sore from all the daily shots. Pregnancy gave me one giant belly that I still miss. Post-baby, I’m embracing a curvier shape that’s new and I love so much. From my larger boobs, bigger but, and new pudge from my c-section — to me, it’s perfect because it made the most beautiful little man in the whole wide world.
But needless to say, none of my pants fit anymore, specifically my old high-waisted jeans. I know I need to give myself time and for my body to fully “settle in” to its new shape, but your girl needed pants to wear outside! A quick online shopping session and I picked up these $22 Target jeans that I now won’t shut up about. I wasn’t expecting to love jeans I bought online from Target as much as my beloved Madewell denim but alas, times have changed!
Now don’t get me wrong, I love my Madewell jeans so much! But none of them fit and I just can’t spend that much money on denim right now when I know my body is still changing. But $22, I can do that! I wear them at least twice a week (when I do actually have to get dressed and leave the house) without fail. I’ve shared them on my Instagram stories countless times and they were even worn in this blog post a couple of weeks back. Told y’all, I can’t’ quit these jeans!

My Denim-Cutting Trick
It’s worth noting though, I did have to do my little denim cutting at home trick on these jeans. When I first got them and tried them on, they fit everywhere but the length was a little long. A couple of snip snips and they hit exactly where I want to on my petite frame. For reference I found the size 25 to fit me perfectly and they stretch out a little, but nothing terrible. So I’d say if you’re between sizes maybe go down.
