NYDJ Basic Bootleg Jeans, Indigo

Product information

Not Your Daughter's Jeans are not your regular jeans - their entire range has been specially designed to flatten your tummy and lift your bottom, for a super-tucked look that's one size smaller than your own.

This all-occasion bootleg pair offer a subtle flare to the hem to lengthen your legs, a classic button and zip-fly fastening and a soft stretch cotton fit.

These jeans are designed to have a snug fit to feel the benefits of their 'lift and tuck' technology - we would strongly advise you try a UK size smaller.

Please note that these jeans will be labelled with US sizing, but are sold by UK sizing as above.

Leg length: S=29.5", R=33".

Brand Story

With exclusive Lift Tuck Technology®, designed to make you look and feel a size smaller, NYDJ are unique in their design and fit. A patented criss-cross panel helps flatten at the front, while lifting and smoothing at the back. It works so well, we recommend that you order a size down from what you normally wear. The rise hits just slightly above the natural waist to provide not only a slimmer silhouette, but also comfort without gaping at the waistband

Q & As

NYDJ Basic Bootleg Jeans, Indigo 4 5 22 22
Fantastically comfortable and flattering These are not cheap (about 4 times more than I usually pay for jeans!), but they are worth every penny. Very flattering - make me look as though I have slim legs and they take years off your age (important in my case). They are also very comfortable - I don't feel I'm wearing Deep Vein Thrombosis tights! 26 August 2014
EXCELLENT These are the most comfortable jeans l have ever owned, will be saving to buy another pair 08 July 2014
Best I have ever bought I took a gamble buying these on line as they were the most I have ever paid but absolutely delighted with them. Wonderful quality and fit and so comfortable have just spent an entire week in them on holiday. Definitely going to buy some more in different colours and styles. Highly highly recommended. 21 April 2014
Worth the extra money Not Your Daughter's Jeans may not be the cheapest option when buying jeans, however these jeans are definitely worth paying a little bit extra for. The quality of the jeans is fantastic, not hard and uncomfortable like some makes can be and they truly make you feel like they are a size smaller. 08 April 2014
Not up to usual NYDJ standard I love love love NYDJ jeans ever since I discovered them about 6 years ago. I've had lots of pairs, and am still wearing the first pair I bought - that's how well they usually last. But the fabric in this particular pair of jeans hasn't behaved like my other NYDJ have, it's gone all saggy and floppy around the legs so like another reviewer, they're relegated to At Home only status. It won't make me stop buying NYDJ but I will check the fabric content in future. BTW the NYDJ cut suits in-and-out figures rather than apples, ie where you have a small waist and a larger bum/tum/hips. I think the sizing has got even kinder recently - I've dropped even further according to NYDJ, but not to my other usual clothes brands (or the scales, worse luck). If John Lewis are reading this, NYDJ make jeans in shedloads of different colours and fabrics but they only seem available in the US. I bought a pair of ultra flattering cords some years back and would love to replace them, but it seems a bit OTT going to the US to buy a pair of jeans. John Lewis - please supply! 18 March 2014
Poor quality fabric that stretches- not usual NYDJ quality! I was delighted with the fit when I bought these- I was sure to buy them fitting very snugly to allow for that little bit of give that you get with all jeans. This is about my 4th pair of NYDJ jeans and the previous pairs always lasted and washed really well. These however are made of a lighter weight fabric (only 80% cotton, 19% polyester and just 1% elastene- the others have much more cotton and a bit more elastene...) and they seemed a good idea for hotter weather. BUT, after just one hour of wearing, these jeans go so baggy everywhere that they look two sizes too big! For such an expensive pricetag, you expect the jeans to perform and wear far better than this. Like a previous reviewer, this particular pair has been a total waste of money and will have to be used around the house. And I'll need to buy some other jeans!! 19 October 2013
These jeans g-r-o-w I would recommend going several sizes smaller than you think you'll need, as these jeans stretch hugely on wear. I bought the UK size 10, which fitted perfectly in the shop, then wore them for a weekend away. After 2 hours sitting on the train, the crotch had sagged, and I was having to yank up the waistband - by the end of the day the knees and thighs were baggy & saggy. I've tried giving them a couple of hot washes, but they don't shrink back like normal jeans - each time I wear them, they get a bit bigger. So, after only a couple of weeks, my new jeans are relegated to 'slobbing round the house jeans'. Very disappointed. 22 May 2013
Great jeans but overpriced! I love these jeans and find at the age of 43 they flatter me in a way no others can do. On a trip to New York I purchased them in Bloomingdales at half the cost they are in the UK. I do buy them from John Lewis as I can't fly to NY every time I need a pair. They last about a year before the colour and knees start to appear worn. The high waist is so fluttering but I always have to have them taken up in the leg as I am only 5ft 5in tall. 28 April 2013
