Colombian Jeans also known as “push up jeans” are well known for the shape and fit that it gives the women that wear them. They have become very popular in the United States in the last decade but before that they were only used by Colombians and Brazilians. Many people wonder, what is so special about these jeans? Well to start we can tell you that they do fit different than any other jean that you buy in Macys or any other store at the mall. They have a really different fit.
This fit is the result of many years of experience, research and development from different textile manufacturers in Colombia that have focused on designing the perfect fit for today’s women.
But not all the jeans made in Colombia have the same fit. Each brand has its unique fit and design so you may like some more than others.
When buying Colombian Jeans you should consider the following aspects:
1- Rise: You can buy high rise, medium rise and low rise. The correct way to measure the rise is to measure from the bottom where the seams meet to the top of the pants above the button. Low rise jeans are usually 6.5 to 7.5 inches approx. While high rise can go between 8 to 9 inches. But it all depends on the size of the jeans. Small size jeans have lower rise than higher sizes.
2- Pockets or not pockets: Colombian jeans do not have front pockets most of the time. This is because front pockets make an impact on the usual fit of the jeans. But they can have back pockets or not. While Colombian jeans with no pockets can be sexier and seductive, jeans with pockets may be more discreet.
3- Belt size: Colombian Jeans with thick belt area tend to be higher rise. This design helps you build and mold a better waist. If you are working on your waist and abs this can be a good option. If you want to show a little bit more, a smaller belt area – low rise jean will be a better option.
4- Price: Colombian jeans usually go between $50 - $80 depending on the brand and style. The most expensive jeans not necessarily mean they fit better. But one thing is fore sure, the quality of these jeans and the way the will make you feel are worth every penny.
