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

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 24 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good quality and fit I bought these in indigo and they are comfortable and fit well. I'm a size 14 apple shape with short legs and got the petite cut. For once they don't leave me with a handful of loose material in the crotch area and I didn't have to pay extra to have them shortened either.. Although they're expensive, I also ordered them in black, this time going down a size, as recommended, and they fit even better. 17 February 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Just average The zip on these jeans broke the first time I wore them, so not a great start. The waist is high but that's the only real advantage of them. Getting a short length for me was a must, as I wasn't going to add to the price with the cost of turning them up. Tighter jeans just give me a muffin top (sadly there's nowhere else for it to go), so I wanted true to size but it the size was confusing because John Lewis presume you want to size down. I ordered a UK 18 and got a US 14, if that helps anyone at all. If you've just got a tiny bit of belly to hide this is fine, if you've not long had a baby like I have, you'll find this sizing down for you quite annoying. When I order size 18, that's what I expect to get. Instead I got a size smaller because that's what this company's marketing has decided I should have. It's really annoying! 21 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by EXCELLENT These are the most comfortable jeans l have ever owned, will be saving to buy another pair 08 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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
Rated 1 out of 5 by 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
