My favorite, every day jeans are NYDJ (Not your daughter's jeans.) They have control fabric designed into the front pockets to help you look slimmer. I have two pair of black ones. I had the straight leg hemmed to wear with flats and sandals. I had the boot cut hemmed to wear with heels and boots. To maintain their color I wash them inside out on the delicate cycle in Woolite for dark colors. I tumble them in the dryer for just a minute or two and hang them up to dry on wooden trouser hangers. This puts a bit of a slimming crease down the legs. They sell many styles and washes so It's easy to find something that fits.
