I know I have said it before, but I still believe it is worth saying again. When it comes to jeans that fit the baby boomer body, there isn’t a better brand on the market today than DG2 jeans from Diane Gilman and Home Shopping Network (HSN).
While my favorite new DG2 jeans are the Diane’s skinny style, I also like love my DG2 Sunkissed Bootcut Jeans. They are perfect for any time of year but are particularly good for spring and summer.
DG2 Sunkissed Bootcut Jeans come in traditional denim. However, they also come in the colors of pink, turquoise, white and yellow. Sizes include petite, regular and tall from a size 2 to a tall 24 women’s.
These sunkissed jeans are unusually soft due to the manufacturing process used in making them. They are made from Diane Gilman’s high quality stretch denim. The fit is perfect for the baby boomer body because, like all DG 2 jeans, there is a little extra width in the waist, hips and thighs.
While the DG2 Sunkissed Bootcut Jeans have a slightly fuller cut, they still perfectly skim the body, remaining somewhat fitted. The one thing they never do is cling too tightly to unsightly areas or create unwanted lumps and bumps or, worse still, the dreaded muffin top.
Enameling on the buttons and rivets tie the entire look altogether to make for a perfectly polished designer look. The denim fabric is even slightly distressed to give them the look and feel of a comfortable old pair of jeans.
DG2 Sunkissed Bootcut Jeans are done in traditional 5-pocketing styling. They zip and button up front with a flat waistband. Belt loops are provided for those who want the extra accent.
The boot cut lets the jean hug the upper thighs and slowly descend to a wider cut over the ankles. The resulting look helps to balance out wider hips for a total slimmed down look.
Size options range from petite 2 to 24; regular 2 to 24 and tall 2 to 24. The inseam on the petite jeans is 29″. The inseam for regulars is 31.5″. The inseam for tall is 33.5″.
The front rise on the petite and missy jeans is approximately 11.25″. The front rise for women’s sizes is about 12.5″
The back rise on the petite and missy jeans is roughly 14.75″. The back rise for women’s sizes is 16.75″. The reason behind the extended back rise is to prevent the jeans from moving downward when a women bends over or stretches outward.
The fabric for these jeans is made up of 32% cotton, 56% ramie and 2% spandex. The jeans can be hand or machine washed and hung or laid flat to dry.
Right now, these jeans are on sale at HSN for an amazing $19.90. That is over $30 off their regular selling price. That is due to the fact that Diane wants to bring in new colors for next year.
These jeans are also available in a cropped styling in the colors of black, chambray, lavender, pink or white. Size and rise options are the same but all of the cropped jeans have a 20″ inseam.
The cropped sunkissed jeans are currently on sale for $14.90, which is about $25.00 off the normal price.
However, available sizing is somewhat limited at this time.
With nearly 1,250 reviews, these jeans garner over 4 out of 5 stars. That is a testament to the time, effort and love Diane Gilman puts into everything she designs.
I love these jeans. They fit beautifully and make me feel like a million dollars. I wear nothing but DG2 jeans and these are among my favorites. I highly recommend them.
