Denim is one of the few staples in a woman’s wardrobe that can flaunt its go-to status all year round. With classic, retro and contemporary fashion trends that make it from the runway to your closet, there’s no shortage of options. But if you’re not sure what to look for in a well-fitted pair of jeans then shopping can be a daunting experience. After all, when it comes to denim it’s never one-size fits all.
Not sure what style flatters your silhouette? Say hello to one of our favourite and most coveted denim brands that is FDJ French Dressing Jeans.
Proudly Made in Canada
A Montreal-based company, proudly led by a team of all-women who design and create fashion in-house for women and their modern, busy lifestyles.
Crafted from the highest quality of fabrics, all FDJ contain Lycra® for added stretch and are made to last. Like most denim, they get even better with wear.
Helping women look and feel great is what we do and that’s why we’re proud to carry FDJ’s four unique fits that cater to women of all different body types.
These four steadfast and true styles are named after famous women who have bravely battled and won the fight against cancer.
Without further ado, let’s meet the girls!
First up, Suzanne. Inspired by actress Suzanne Somers, this is a straight fit for women with straight hips and less curve. If you’re looking for a flattening effect in the tummy and a lifting effect at the seat, Suzanne’s your girl. Always on her best behaviour, sitting pretty at your natural waist and covering your navel.
Next, we have Peggy. Olympic figure-skater Peggy Fleming is inspiration behind this curvy fit. This jean highlights your defined waistline and more pronounced curves in the most flattering way.
Onto slightly curvy, Olivia. If you guessed singer/actress Olivia-Newton John as inspo, you got it! Sitting just below the navel, this fit complements anyone with balanced waist-to-hip proportions and embraces the body’s natural curves.
No denim line is ever complete without a fit that “lifts”. Around here, we call her Christina thanks to actress Christina Appelgate. This enhanced fit lifts your behind and hugs you in all the right places. For all the ladies with slender hips but still need the extra room in the derriere area, we see you.
Calling All Petites
Naturally, FDJ fits also come in petite sizes. And in case you're wondering, being petite has everything to do with height (5'4 and under) and nothing to do with weight. A fan of Suzanne? You're in luck. She's available in a petite and in-store. We can also order a favourite fit for you (select styles apply).
Beyond the Fit
Equally impressive is that FDJ customizes collections even further with features like:
- Rise (Regular, Mid and Slightly Lower)
- Height (Regular inseam of 31” or Petite inseam of 28”)
- Leg Opening (Slim, Straight, Bootcut, Flared, Ankle, to name just a few)
- Wash (Dark, Medium, Light, Black)
Like our friends at FDJ, we celebrate that we come in all different shapes and sizes and we won’t let you settle for anything less than the most figure-flattering jeans.
Stay tuned for upcoming blogs where we’ll feature a different FDJ style every week to help you find your perfect fit!
