I was thrilled when I was offered the chance to try some jeans from Best&Less: as we move into the cooler months, it is definitely time for some new wardrobe options! From the Soft Touch Jeans range, which includes blue, grey and black, I chose the blue – a flexible mid to dark blue colour.
When the jeans arrived, I was immediately taken with the very soft, smooth feel of the fabric, a premium satin weave construction. I slipped them on and was delighted to find they fitted perfectly through the waist and legs.
Made from a blend of cotton, polyester and elastane, the Best& Less Soft Touch Jeans have just the right amount of stretch. They have a flattering slim-leg style, which worked even with my wide calves, and a comfortable mid-rise waist. A size 10 is worn here, and it was accurate to my current size in jeans/pants. (If you’re unsure, there’s also a fitting guide on the website.) At just 158 centimetres tall, I found the jeans were a couple of centimetres too long and did require shortening for day-to-day wear with flat shoes. On a taller person, however, the length would be fine.
Finding jeans that fit well can certainly be a challenge, especially since having children (!), but overall I have been really happy with the fit of the Soft Touch Jeans – they are highly wearable and equally comfortable while standing or sitting. I have also been pleased that there is no ‘sag’, which I sometimes encounter with stretch jeans. I even got a compliment from a friend the very first time I wore them!
I have also found them to be very versatile – they can be easily worn together with a T-shirt or knit for a park visit with the kids, the school run or a coffee outing, and they can also be paired with a more formal top or blouse for a dressier occasion.
At just $20, I think these jeans are a STEAL and will be purchasing the black and grey too. Highly recommended by this Inner West Mum!
Please note: while I received this pair of jeans free of charge, all the opinions expressed in this piece are authentically my own.
