levis curve id

Yes people, it’s that time again! Once in a year I might do a post about fashion, just because I can, muahaha! In all seriousness though, I wanted to share a bit of my story with being petite and the struggle for finding good fitting pants because those are the worst! So let me talk a bit about my situation. I’m not the tallest girl here, living amongst all the taller Belgian girls. Let’s say I’m 5’4, or 1m65 and I have the flattest ass you can imagine *cries*. I’m slightly on the skinnier side and that’s the biggest problem, it’s getting better because I gained a lot of weight lately. I know a lot of Asian people tend to be petite and slender and it seems I’m one of them which makes it slightly problematic. The brands available here are ok, there are Western European Brands however and those sizes really run too big for me. I mostly go for brands that are from Spain (Zara, Bershka, Pull&Bear) because it seems like the sizes run a bit smaller but it’s still not perfect. Levi’s launched its Curve ID a good while ago and I was like ‘yeah right, I bet they forgot about the petite ones like me’ and I didn’t really pay any attention to it. Time flies and I hear more and more people giving very positive response to the line. With the sales starting I though ‘heck, why not, let’s try this’ and guys, I’m glad I did!

I know it sounds a bit silly but the reason I don’t enter a Levi’s Store is because they immediately approach you to help you out. Great for most but I’m shy so I kinda feel awkward (anyone has this too? Please tell me I’m not crazy, lol!). So I rarely just browse around but if you are a girl with a mission, it’s a great store! So there I went, browsing the goods on sale and a sales man approached me and helped me out. I wasn’t familiar with the whole Levi’s Curve idea but normally they measure you up. The Curve ID differs from other brands because they work with your curve. They have Slight Curve, Demi Curve, Bold Curve and Supreme Curve. Let’s say that they got flat asses to some serious booty all covered! So the first step is to find out what Curve you are. They measure you up in waist and hips. Then they measure your seat aka your bum. And next they measure the length of your legs. Most brands got the length of your legs covered and the waist but not your hips and your bum and that is the great part of these jeans! So the sales advisor took a good look at me and went straight to Slight Curve. Now it was a bit looking for my waist and after a few fits he says ‘you are a 24′. I was wearing a 25 at that moment and I was very unsure about his choice because it looked so small. But ok, I tried them on and I kinda felt like I was trying to squeeze myself into those jeans. I’m not used to it at all because all jeans are pretty loose on me. He looked at me and said ‘perfect, that’s the one’.

And he was right! I chose a jeans with an interesting feel. I’m not sure what it is, it’s not the average jeans fabric, it feels a bit more rough but I loved it so much. These jeans had to be worn in a bit, something I never really had. But after one day of wearing them they already fit me like a glove! In the past 1000 years (it sure feels like it) I always had to wear a belt with my pants because they are all waaay too wide in the waist or my bum. And now for the first time ever I can just wear it without a belt. It felt amazing! The jeans feel so incredibly well because they seriously fit me like a glove.

awkwaaaaard! :p

So yes, we can conclude that I’m a believer in the Curve ID. I’m definitely going back for more in the future. No more loose jeans, awkward fittings and all that. They really got the people like me covered. Now I can’t speak for the really petite people because I do have longer legs and I’m not sure how it works when you are really shorter. Levis offers customization so I think they can shorten the jeans if needed. Little side note: it was super awkward to take pictures of me because my boyfriend had to take them (my remote control’s cord is way too short) and he knows nothing about it. So after goofing and giggling around we realised we’re not the best pair. Bad photographer and a very sucky model, haha. DB decided to save the pictures by placing himself in the background and I think he did a good job, lol! TGIF everone! ^^


PS: you know you are a cat lady when you have soooo much cat hair on your clothes! Sorry guys, I had one cuddle session too much it seems! ^^

PPS: Apparantly you can also order your Levi’s jeans in their webshop if you live in Belgium!

  1. Helllo from Holland! Your post really convinced me to buy a pair! Thank you! They are currently on sale now :D yay!

  2. Ah wauw, die zit echt als gegoten! Staat je goed. Curve ID is echt een goed concept van Levi’s, ik vind die broeken ook heel fijn!

  3. The jeans look fabulous on you. It’s so hard to find the right pair of jeans….like finding the perfect foundation shade and formula – it’s like searching for the holy grail!

  4. Hey — this is cool! I want to try it. It’s so great that a company is trying to market to different body sizes, instead of pretending that we are all supposed to be the same. I’m the type with a big seat compared to my waist. I always need a belt too.

  5. I totally get what you mean about people helping you right away. What’s funny is that they’re nowhere to be found when you actually need them to rifle through their backstock. I’ve always wanted to get a pair of the slight curve, but they never have a pair in a 26! I gave up after calling the store for a few weeks.

  6. Wauw die broek zit je echt als gegoten, staat je echt heel leuk. X

  7. Ik ben een tijdje geleden ook eens bij Levi’s gaan kijken, maar de skinny broeken zijn niet skinny genoeg voor mij. Ofwel heb ik heel dunne enkels ofzo (?) maar ze vielen eerder slim uit. Wat ik heel jammer vind want ik wou zo graag een Levi’s broek :( Ik probeer het later eens bij Lee

  8. Teri, might I say you are a perfect model. I think everyone has trouble finding a good pair of jeans. It is such hassle to go shopping for them. I actually don’t like help from a sales assistant but when shopping for jeans I need all the extra help I can get. These look great on you! And they must never be loose! Always go tighter bc they will loosen :-)

  9. Aww you look so good! One of my BFF’s is a 24 just like you and we were talking jeans recently, I need to tell her about these!
    I’m more of a 29 myself but I’m very tall so I dont have many issues with finding jeans :)

    PS you cat is lovely :)

  10. These look great! And I love your boots! I always bought jeans that were a little loose, too, and then they stretch…so I think it is important to buy jeans that fit well. Took me about 22 years to figure that out :P

  11. Mooi hoor! En je trui ook, die kleur is echt prachtig voor je!

  12. Die jeans zit je inderdaad als gegoten ! Als ik mijn doelgewicht bereikt heb, ga ik de Curve ID ook eens uitproberen !

  13. Staat je echt heel leuk!

  14. Wat een figuur ! Je ziet er stunning uit met die jeans ! Must check it out soon !

  15. I am a big big biiig Levi’s fan. Did I emphasize the word ”big” enough? ;-) Seriously though, the best pairs of jeans I own are ALL Levi’s Curve ID jeans. I have quite skinny legs and basically no ass, and finding jeans that really fit me like a glove is difficult. But with Levi’s Slight Curves I already know in advance that they will fit me to a T. This is sounding to start like a bad add, but really, I love Levi’s Curve ID jeans. It’s good to see you found a great-fitting pair as well :-D

    • Haha, great! I love that they provide to all kind of shapes, I was genuinely surprised about it! And yeah, they deserve a lot of love!

  16. Wat een leuke foto’s zeg!

  17. Those jeans look fantastic on you! :)

  18. Yaay I’m so happy I pointed this out for you! I was so skeptical about spending so much on a pair of jeans, but I’m so happy I found something that fits me because it’s really not easy! Also, DB!!! He’s a natural ;)

  19. Hier ook een fan! Ik heb er maar een paar van, maar wil wel nog een tweede (of derde) jeans van de Curve ID. Heel fijn!

  20. you have a perfect figure Teri! I am 1,68 and have a problem finding good jeans as well. I know exactly how you feel (aka shyness), I was like that (and still, I can see me being shy from time to time). This jeans look like made for you, I also like your boots >.<

    • Really? I mean 1m68 is not small at all. But depending on your figure it can get tricky idd. Pictures are always awkward with me, lol! Thanks a lot for liking it Claire! ^^

  21. You are just so pretty and you have a gorgeous smile and photograph well. Love these full images of you–you should post them more often! :D and yes, those jeans look great on you!

  22. die met de kat is het mooist :)

  23. Hi! Sorry but just want to point out that Zara, Bershka and Pull&Bear are Spanish! (And I think Zara owns Bershka). Anyhow the jeans look great on you, I love jeans that colour, it looks more polished. I’m also shy and would prefer the sales assistants to only attend me when I need it, I feel uncomfortable too when they jump straight at me as soon as I walk in. x

    • Hey Sofia, thanks a lot for pointing that out! For some reason I always mix those two countires up, oops! So happy I’m not the only shy person around, it’s a bit funny isn’t it? ^^ Thank you so much for liking it on me, I’ve been loving these jeans so much!

  24. oeh mooie broek :D ik zit ook altijd onder het kattenhaar XD

  25. Mooie broek. Moet ik ook maar eens voor gaan kijken :-)
