We all know jeans are basically impossible to wear with Endo Belly. I'm about 5 months post-excision (endometriosis) and #hysterectomy (adenomyosis), and although I'm practically symptom-free (hooray!) I do still experience discomfort and bloating occasionally, plus I'm definitely carrying some extra weight since surgery and lockdown combined. With all that in mind I still haven't been able to wear my favourite clothing much; jeans. I live for jeans. I love them. At home? Jeans. Going out for the day? Jeans. Going out at night? Ha as if, but jeans - and a nice top of course!
I wrote this review on instagram as a massive appreciation for I'm Fine Attire; they have done the impossible and created jeans for us peeps living with "womens health problems". They're similar to maternity jeans (but I think way more comfortable), plus there's a hidden pocket in the front for heat/cool packs (a pack is included). For any of you with endo, adeno, pcos etc, these may well bring you the same amount of joy as they have me! Thanks also IFA for having these as a cropped fit so as they therefore fit me (I'm 5 ft)!
I’ve been dreaming of wearing ‘real’ jeans since I became a wheelchair user outside of the house. Up until now I’ve had to rely on ‘jeggings’ (which are just not the same) as ordinary jeans will cut you in half of you wear them in a wheelchair. These on the other hand are glorious!
When I first tried them on it felt so amazing to be able to wear proper denim again; the waistband is high at the back but it’s also flat so there aren’t any buttons or thick seams that are likely to cause problems. Then when you get round to the front there’s denim where it’ll show and then there’s just this lovely soft crossover jersey that you adjust with the buttonhole elastic to fit whatever size you are at that moment. I’m 5’ 8 1/2” found the legs a good length for me in flats so I imagine that for most women they’d be great for heels or flats as you can always allow for a little ruche at the ankle 🙂
Just what I was looking for to wear on my bloated days caused by my PoTs and BAD condition, the waste section is super stretchy to accommodate my 9 month pregnancy looking bloating & on days when I am bloat free and the fabric sits tightly & smoothly as though it’s never been stretched as much as it has. Far more comfortable to wear than other jeans when sat in my wheelchair. Wish I’d had these years ago!!
