But as my body changed ( I think I gained the freshman 15 plus a few extra) so did my affinity for skinny jeans. But my extremely low-rise jeans became the best creator of the muffin top. Yes, the dreaded roll of flesh that came pouring out of my low-rise, probably too snug jeans. And I suffered for years hiding the muffin with pillowy tops and flannel shirts, but life has changed. I discovered the high-rise or high waisted jeans (not to be confused with the extremely high rib touching jeans or mom jeans—which are in style too by the way. Thanks 90’s fashions!).
It took me a long time but finally found my new love —-the high waisted jean—although I think they’ve always been there waiting for me. So we get to keep our skinny jeans, but we’ve gained the ability to breathe and be comfortable in our new love high rise jeans without losing circulation in our midsections.
