I saw this article about Denim Leggings, slating them and saying how horrible they are… It’s worth a read but I don’t think the person who is writing it has actually tried denim leggings properly. She is assuming they are so tight they cut off your circulation and are really bad for you. Most of us who own denim leggings, especially the premium brands, know that they are very very comfy and just like normal leggings, they are not some horrible, really really tight, devil jeans that you can’t breathe in. 7 For All Mankind, Paige Premium, Citizens of Humanity, Current/Elliott and so many other brands have super comfortable jeggings, you just have to try them to find that out. I was wondering what is your opinion on denim leggings? Do you find them comfy and really cute to go under your longer tops? Or do you dislike the way they look and feel? I’m actually glad they came out, I love skinnys but a lot of them were too tight and not very comfortable so making them like leggings was a life saver!I wear them all the time with longer tops and boots, flats or heels, they are very versatile.

Does anyone actually look good in jeggings? Rebecca Dana on the evil spawn of jeans and leggings. I can’t feel my legs.
We are now three seasons into the 21st century’s worst fashion trend, in which women suck, pull, and squeeze themselves into denim-colored sausage casings and then waddle around pretending they’re wearing blue jeans. Just looking at these tragic hybrid “pants” can cut off a person’s circulation. Actually putting on a pair is a clinically proven health hazard.
Yet the scourge of the “jeggings” persists.
They are everywhere: On Whitney Port, doe-eyed star of MTV’s The City; dip-dyed onto ubiquitous British model Agyness Deyn; bunched up on the floor of American Apparel fitting rooms; stretched like a helium balloon across the entire Jersey Shore. With a finger in each belt loop, they have even huffed and puffed and hauled their way up into the Oxford English Dictionary.
Two percent Lycra-spandex, at a minimum, and dyed to look just like 501s, with fake back pockets straining against even the slimmest rump and obscene little painted-on notches where the fly should be: They look good on precisely no one. But now, in 2010, after a year and a half in a recession, when we’re all supposed to be a little wiser and more sensible about our purchases, these horrible things are still flying off the shelves. Last summer, Women’s Wear Daily reported that such vaunted brands as Seven for All Mankind, BCBG, and, yes, even Levi’s were on the hunt for the latest “superstretchy denim” that will suction ever-tighter against women’s legs. Which means we have at least another season of acid-washed, faux-distressed, cotton-polyester leggings to come.

Here is one of the first denim reviews I am doing as requested by the lovely readers. I have chosen to do 7 For All Mankind’s Moto Leggings in Coco wash. They are brand new and not out until February 28th 2010 so you have to wait a while. Kim Kardashian also owns these lovely jeans. They are super stretchy, like real leggings, you could do yoga in them! They run true to size like most 7 For All Mankind jeans and are very comfy. They are definitely loads different to the normal style of their jeans, they have plain pockets and a pretty marble style wash, cute ankle zips and an elasticated waistband. I wasn’t sure on them at first as I have never really bought into the moto jeans trend but I tried them on and I absolutely love them! They are a very flattering fit and paired with a longer top like Kim and some boots you can’t go wrong. 7 For all mankind really did well designing these. I included lots of close up photos so you can see the details and the wash properly. Also the rise is 9 inches and the inseam is 30 inches for reference.
I really like these jeans, they are great for running errands and wearing as casual every day jeans. I personally wouldn’t wear them dressed up because of the wash.
Full laid down front shot of the jeans, you can see how pretty they are just lying on the floor.
Full laid down back shot of the jeans so you can see the wash clearly and how they lay.
Close up front shot, you can see the elastic in the waistband which is very stretchy and easily worn for comfort. They also have seam stitching around the front of the crotch and thighs.
Close up shot of the back, you can see the seam just below the waist band, it curves downwards which is a lot different to the regular stitching.
You can see the elasticated waistband and the stitching around the knees and legs more closely.
They have very cute ankle zippers as you can see below.
Modeled photos so you can see how they look on the thighs.
Modeled details of the seam stitching around the knee area.
Modeled side photo, you can see all of the stitching very clearly and how they sit on the legs and butt. They are very figure hugging and flattering but loads different from the normal style denim legging jeans.
