The ellie Review & Giveaway

Women (as most of y'all are) have a hard time finding jeans that fit well. I know I do! For me, they either fit in the waist but are too short, or they are long enough and they swallow me whole! Well, The ellie jeans are my new favorite jeans!

The ellie jeans are designer jeans made in Los Angeles USA and benefit the ellie fund. The ellie fund is a non-profit breast cancer foundation that provides free support services each year to more than 600 women and families who are undergoing treatment for breast cancer in Massachusetts. Click HERE to learn more about the ellie fund.

For review I saw send two pairs. The curvy bootcut, and the high rise straight leg.

I love these jeans. They are the most comfortable jeans I have worn. I wore the curvy bootcut pair on Thanksgiving. I stuffed myself that day and I never felt like the jeans were cutting off circulation! :) I didn't have to unbutton them or anything! I was impressed!

The great thing for me about these jeans is that they are long enough for me! I'm only 5'8", but I'm all legs! These jeans are long enough, plus some! Yippee! I also really like the darkwash color! It looks so "fancy"!

The only problem that I had with the jeans was the sizing. The sizes run in designer jeans sizes. Ok, I am not used to that! I had to look up a size chart and then pray that when they got here that they fit! The bootleg jeans fit, but the straight legs were a little big. I guess the straight legs run a little bigger because I got them both in the same size. I'm hoping that when I wash them, they will shrink some! I need a pair of new straight legs, and the ellie ones are lovely!

Supporting a good cause has never been so fashionable!

I think I'd pick the straight leg, since I have so many other curvy/bootcut style jeans (not this brand though.) But I might change my mind.
