This week I’m excited to review an exclusive new style from James Jeans the Twiggy Dancer Point Blue the Seamless Side Yoga Legging. This jean is currently a brand new style and only available on the James Jeans US site, (however they do ship to the UK).
The Fit: The Twiggy is one of James Jeans most popular styles, a mid-rise skinny so it’s not so surprising they have used this fit for their new launch. This is what they say about this new exclusive style. “The denim crossover to yoga-wear the world has been waiting for, transitioning you seamlessly from work to warrior pose. From our love of fitness to your obsession with our fit, we’ve taken the James Twiggy back to the drafting table for a fully aerodynamic redesign. The pockets on the front are faux so not to add any unnecessary bulk to the streamline of this jean.
” I’m reviewing a size 25 but the sizes starts at a 23 to 34, which is a UK size 2/4 up to a 16/18. This style comes in 4 different colours, Black Swan, Arabesque, Point Blue and Oil Slicked.
The Behind: The back pockets have a simple dark orange stitching with a small dart on the pocket to contour the bottom and large belt loops. The fit on the bottom is like a second skin.
The Leg Opening: 5 inches.
Leg Length: 29 to 30 inches
The Fabric: Fabric technology powered by ISKO™ ( which means the fabric used comes from a specialised denim producer ISKO™). 50% Modal, 41.5% Cotton, 6% Polyester, 2.5% Spandex.
Want to know what Modal is? Modal® is a bio-based fiber made by spinning reconstituted cellulose from beech trees. It is about 50% more hygroscopic, or water-absorbent, per unit volume than cotton is. It is designed to dye just like cotton, and is color-fast when washed in warm water.
Which Body Shape?: These jeans are good for …. Apple, Petite as sizes start at 23 inches, Hourglass & Pear (be sure to measure your unique rise to see if this mid-rise is going give you enough coverage). I’m please to say Fuller Figure can also benefit from this jean. Long & leggy also will love this style as a cropped leg.
The Round Up: The beauty of the Twiggy Dancer is in the comfort and the unique seamlessness this jean offers. When putting your legs in you can feel the denim grab your leg and smooth out as you pull the jeans up. These jeans really give a second skin look and feel. I chose the Point Blue colour as it’s a medium dark indigo completely clean jean and a great wardrobe staple. I will definitely invest in a black pair but would go down a size this time as the size 25 tends to slide down my flat bottom, the curse of the Apple body shape! If your unsure of what size to purchase or need some fit advice James Jeans have a Live Chat manned by denim specialist happy to answer your questions.
I nearly forgot the price is $167 -$176 that approx £98 to £104 remember to factor in the shipping fee, approx $70/ £40 to the UK. Free shipping to the US.
TRIED & TESTED SCORE: 8.5/10
