When it comes to jeans, there is only one brand that I buy. That is the DG2 Jean from Diane Gilman on Home Shopping Network (HSN).
Yes, I buy my jeans off of the television. Why? Because they always fit; the price is right; and the variety is unparalleled.
My new favorite DG2 jeans are their new DG 2 Stretch Denim Skinny Jeans. They currently come in black, chambray, gray and indigo.
I chose the double-dyed black jeans for my latest purchase because I wanted something a bit dressier in nature for the holidays. It was the perfect choice.
What I like most about DG2 jeans is that they are made to fit a real woman’s body. In particular, they are made to fit a Baby Boomer woman’s body. That is for those of us who are slightly larger around the middle, hips and thighs.
Diane Gilman provides the most amazing stretch in her jeans. Even the waist gives enough to make sure you are comfortable no matter what you’re doing. I’ve even exercised in my jeans and felt perfectly at ease.
I also love that Diane keeps abreast with what is going on in the fashion industry. She has the latest styles, colors, and embellishments. However, she also provides some of the tried and true looks for ladies who are not into trends.
While some of Diane’s jeans have an elastic waist, the DG2 Stretch Denim Skinny Jean enjoys a traditional jean closure that zips and buttons in front. It also has belt loops for women who like to wear belts with their jeans.
The jeans are done in the traditional 5-pocket styling with a straight leg. But, because these jeans are “skinny” in nature, a zipper is provided at the ankle to make it easy to slip the jeans over boots if desired.
Closed, the zipper legs look dynamite with high heels or tucked into a cute pair of boots. Open, the legs slow off cute “shooties,” boots or flats.
Diane’s collection of jeans is made for women of all sizes from 2 to 26. They come in petite, regular and tall. The petite inseam is 28″. The regular inseam is 30″. The tall inseam is 32″.
The Missy front rise is roughly 11 Â½” and the back rise is just under 15″. The woman’s rise is 12 Â½” and the back is just under 17″. The higher back rise helps to shape the derriere and ensure the jeans do not dip in the back.
The fit of the DG2 Stretch Denim Skinny Jean is close to the body but it does not hug it tightly. That is perfect for curvier women like myself.
The fabric for this jean is 2% spandex, 10% polyester, 32% cotton and 56% ramie. They can be machine washed and dried.
When it comes to jeans, I have never found a better fit. No other jeans make me feel the way DG2 jeans do either. I always feel pretty, confident and on trend. That is all any woman wants and Diane Gilman provides it in spades.
Here is my summary review:
Fit: 5 stars. DG2 jeans fit all shapes and sizes. It is Diane Gilman’s guarantee and she doesn’t take it lightly.
Appearance: 5 stars. Diane provides the hippest new styles that are always on trend. However, she also provides the tried and the true in standard cut jeans, flare and boot cut too.
Variety: 5 stars. Diane makes her denim jeans in all colors and colorations. She also makes them in trendy colors like chocolate brown, gray, green, etc. Additionally, Diane does a lot of hand painted, beaded and embellished jeans. There is no one who does it better in the marketplace today.
Price: 5 stars. Diane runs a lot of sales and specials that make her jeans more than affordable. The DG2 Stretch Denim Skinny Jean normally retails for $49.90, which is lower than average. However, the sale price usually sits at $39.90 or less. Home Shopping Network also provides a lot of flexpay offers that let customers have the product while they are paying it off. It just doesn’t get any better.
Reputation: 5 stars. Diane Gilman used to hand paint jeans for the biggest names in music. She still does, only now they buy them from HSN right along with the rest of us.
Availability: 3 stars. Okay, you can only get her jeans new from HSN. But what’s the big deal? They take checks and credit cards and provide a 30-day, unconditional money-back guarantee. If you don’t like them you can return them for a full refund. Around Christmas, like now, the guarantee is expanded through mid-January. That means you can have them for almost 90 days before return if you so desire.
Product Purchase Probability: 5 stars. I know I’ll buy more DG2 Stretch Denim Skinny Jeans because I love them.
