Slink Jeans Review

Slink Jeans Review | Designing From My Closet | Plus & Inbetweenie Fashion Blog

Over a month ago I was lucky enough to win a pair of Slink Jeans through Hey Gorgeous when they had a giveaway promotion on their Instagram account.  I had been enamored with the brand ever since they began their marketing much prior to them being available.  Their eye catching images and message of body positivity always had me pressing the like button.  Slink has very distinctive imagery that goes in line with their sexy vibe with many pictures being of beautiful ladies topless showing off their Slinks while carefully and tastefully covering themselves.  While I may not be the typical plus size gal who would be seen in any of their ads, I wanted to show how I style my sexy skinnies in my vintage boho way.

Today I am going to be reviewing the Skinny Stretch Denim Jeans in the Danielle fit/wash.  Now that I have had ample time to wear and wash and wear again these much talked about jeans, I want to share my thoughts on fit, quality, price, and overall impressions of the Slink Jeans brand.

To give you a little background on Slink Jeans, they have a claim to have “Curve-Hugging Technology”, so I was very curious to find out first hand what this actually meant.  Below is an image I captured online of the jeans that I am wearing.  They have a medium wash with light wiskering at the hip and are a full length jean.  Priced at $98, they are more expensive than any other denim I have ever purchased on my own, but I have seen denim with a heftier price tag.  Now, onto my personal review.

Denim has always been a staple in my wardrobe so I was excited to give these a try.  As mentioned, I had never purchased a higher priced pair, and my expectations were high.  My current denim wardrobe consists of Forever 21+ and LOFT jeans in various styles and washes that on average cost me between $20-$50 each.  Before even putting these on I could tell right away that these were going to blow all of my jeans out of the water.  The hand was amazing.  So soft, thick, but not too thick.

I did need to cuff them, and cuff them deeply, I would say around 5″ to 6″.  And honestly, I do not mind.  This is also good news for my tall ladies out there who have a hard time finding jeans that actually fit their legs in the length department.  Yes, I could have them hemmed, but I personally like the look.  The fact that these look good with flats is also a feature to me.  I cannot quite put my finger on it, but some of my skinny jeans look horrible with flats and I can only wear them with a heel.

I mentioned that I adored the hand prior to putting these jeans on, and when I put them on, they even felt better.  They are very soft against the skin which is great for me because I have sensitive skin and am prone to rashes and several other irritants.  The weight of them is that happy medium between thick and thin.  They hug my curves without clinging to any of the stuff I don’t want to highlight.  Some skinnies are so thin that they show every dimple known to man.  These are not like that at all.  And then there are the skinnies that do not quite hug the body good and are loose in funny areas.  These most certainly do have that proclaimed Body-Hugging Technology that I was so skeptical of!  I honestly have never been so proud to show off my legs.  I feel down right sexy without being overt.  The way I carry myself is even different every time I slip these on.

The stretch is great without loosing their shape throughout the day, so it was almost like wearing comfy pajamas.  And what I love about the fit of these is that although I have larger thighs, they still fit them beautifully and taper down at the ankle nicely.  A lot of skinny cuts that allow for larger thighs are not as slim in the ankle so they are too loose for my preference.

The medium to dark wash on these is my ideal color for denim.  I love how they can go casual and dressy depending upon what I pair with them.  And one of the biggest features that I love about these Slink Jeans are the rise.  Being short waisted I wear a lot of pants and jeans that go up to right under my bust.  These actually sit a tiny bit below my belly button.  Happy Dance time!!!  This means I can actually tuck in tops if I want to and not be frustrated that they are so high on my torso.  I do however need to belt them because they gap slightly in the back of the waist, but not bad enough to make it uncomfortable.

Now, back to that $98 price tag.  Now that I have experienced the fabulousness that is Slink, I have to say they are totally worth it.  I honestly never want to wear any of my other jeans.  They make me feel like a million bucks and they wash beautifully.  I launder them inside out on the delicate cycle, line dry, and then pop them in the dryer on low heat for a couple of minutes to remove any wrinkles or crunchiness from drying.  I do all of this to keep these babies in my life for as long as possible.

Now in case you were wondering, this is NOT a sponsored post.  I was not asked to do this, nor was I paid to write this review.  I just feel extremely lucky I had the chance to try these jeans and I wanted to share my findings.  There are several more styles that I want to introduce into my wardrobe in the future in distressed finishes and ankle lengths like the ones below.  Overall, I am loving my Slink Jeans and I highly recommend them.

  1. It’s nice to hear real opinions about items that one normally wouldn’t purchase!
    I’m very much like you in that I rarely pay top dollar for my jeans—yet I do have a couple pair that are in the $100 range. Considering they are an item that one probably wears a ton—at least the cost per wear would be reasonable!!

    1. Most definitely! I would have balked at this price before and now I realize with all the times I am wearing them, the CPW is getting really low. Even lower than my other than my less expensive jeans because I just don’t want to wear them any more! 🙂

  2. We are thrilled you love the fit and feel of your new Slink jeans! Everyone who comes into our showroom has a similar reaction to yours, and it’s so great to hear. Glad you won and that you can share!! Xx

    1. Oh yes! I really do love my Slink Jeans and I can only imagine how other ladies react to them. Thank you again for holding this giveaway and for these amazing jeans.

  3. I love how you described that these pants do not show “every dimple known to man”. That has always been the problem I have with skinny jeans. My legs look like sausages stuffed into their casings. The price is high, but one of my favorite brands of jeans is Rock and Republic at Kohl’s. They run around $90, but I try to get them when they are on sale. So for a good pair of jeans it’s worth it. You look fabulous! Thanks for sharing. – Amy

  4. I’m no stranger to premium denim and when slink jeans came out…I was really curious as there are so few premium brands out there that are made for curvy gals. I’m wondering where they are made, I couldn’t find that info online. They look quite good on you and I’m hoping they last. I have issues with the inner thighs of most of my jeans wearing out quickly which makes me sad. Thanks for this review because I was very curious about slink jeans.

    1. So far, with the many times I have washed them (almost once a week), they still look brand new. And boy, I have had my fair share of pants and denim having issues with the inner thighs, even within a few wears! I am glad you found my review helpful. And I think I need to do an update on the post in a while to give an idea of how they wear over time.

  5. I love slink jeans too! But unfortunately, I just discovered that my favorite pair tore in the inner thigh 😦 I hate this with jeans and I was hoping with the higher price point this wouldn’t have happened so fast. Have you experienced this with yours? I never put them in the dryer but I didn’t wash them on delicate. Maybe that would have helped. I have only had them for a few months.

    1. Oh no! That is beyond frustrating. So far my Slink pair have outlasted three other cheaper pair that I got around the same time and they still look brand new. I wear them probably three times a month, washing them every time, and I have had them about five months. I would agree that with the price point, that should not happen in this short period of time.
