It’s been a long time coming, but I finally have a pair of LuLaRoe jeans that I popped the tags on. Since I’ve been able to wear these jeans all day, I figured it’s only time to write my LLR Denim review. So, let’s get down to it.
What is LLR Denim?
LuLaRoe had a dream to create jeans that actually fit women for the last few years. It’s taken many prototypes, fittings, and some blood, sweat, and tears, but LLR was able to create jeans like none I’ve ever felt. These jeans are incredibly soft, stretch with me, and make my butt look good. Why? I’ll break down the exact reasons why below.
LLR Denim Review: Details
The LuLaRoe jeans have a few details that really set them apart from the crowd of jeans. What are these?
The waistband of these jeans has elastic. When I first heard this, I imagined those ugly jeans my grandma wore that puckered and made her butt resemble a muffin. Then, my mind flashed to little kid’s pants. This waistband is not that. These jeans look just like any other jeans from the outside. The magic is on the inside. Didn’t Jiminy Cricket say something similar to this? The inside of the waistband has elastic panels so that the jeans move and stretch with you while you’re on the move. I’m proud to say that no one has seen my butt crack today while rocking these jeans! And yes, I have squatted over many times in front of people.
Yes, LuLaRoe paid the extra money for licensing and use of Lycra within their jeans. Did you know that Lycra is trademarked? I had no clue before these jeans. The Lycra provides killer stretch, awesome recovery, and makes for a better fit on women’s curves. When I took these jeans off at the end of the day, they fit my body the same as they did when I first put them on. This is killer!
Power Mesh Panel
Yeah, that’s a weird phrase, but I’d be doing a disservice if I didn’t cover the power mesh panel within my LLR Denim review. This piece of mesh is laid on the inside of the pocket. This helps the jeans not cling to any mommy pooch. Let’s be honest, mine’s not due to kids, but is the direct result of many, many tacos and late nights.
LLR Denim Review: Fit
I’m very honest and upfront about my body. I’m 5’4″ on a good day, weigh more than I’m willing to disclose, am a 12/14, and have a hourglass/borderline pear shape. I carry my weight from my natural waist down. This girl has ALWAYS had a booty. I can’t remember a time where I didn’t have a butt. As a ballerina, my teacher used to make comments about the size of the junk in my trunk. So yeah, I know what it’s like having a hard time to find jeans that fit.
I tried fitting my booty into the 30’s, but it wasn’t a good fit. I currently am bloated, so it might be that. I’ll try again later.
First off, let me say that these jeans were worn the day before these pictures were taken. Yes, they still fit the same on day 2! According to the size chart, these are my true size. Granted, I haven’t done a lot of jean shopping in the last 3 years, so I didn’t know my true jeans size. These fit amazingly! They don’t bite in when I sit down. That’s a major win for me!
I always go a size up whenever I do a style review. Even though these jeans were larger, they still were super comfortable, didn’t fall down, and looked pretty good. I love that I can rock more than one size in case I fall in love with a wash, distress pattern, or whatever else LLR has up their sleeve in the future.
LLR Denim Review: Overall Thoughts
I knew these jeans were a whole different beast from other jeans and even the previous renditions of LuLaRoe jeans (MyDenim) from the moment I slid them on. They didn’t bite into my waist. Wait, you mean there was no muffin top? CORRECT! No muffin top over here! I immediately had to bend over to check and see they would gape in the back like my other jeans always have. These held to my body! With the size of my booty, this is shocking to me! The power mesh panels also prevented the jeans from clinging to my rolls. Within the first five minutes, I was sold. These are magical, and it just got better as the day went on. I didn’t feel the need to unbutton them as I sat down. They also have the recovery we were promised. I don’t have saggy knees or look like my butt is droopy.
My one negative? I wish the front pockets were deeper. I don’t feel safe putting anything in them without that item possibly flipping out on accident.
It’s taken a lot of time to get to this point, but I’m so happy to say it was worth the wait. After last year’s MyDenim failure (in my opinion), I’m thrilled to be able to offer these LuLaRoe jeans to my customers. Last year’s version of the jeans did not do any favors to my body as a curvy woman. The new version has changed my mind. I’m excited to be rocking these jeans!

What size do you normally wear.in sizes the rest of us can understand? So confused by LLR’s made up sizing.
Devin Zarda says
I break down which sizes I normally wear in the post. I’m a 12/14. LuLaRoe is using the European standard with waistband measurements, so I can wear a 32 or 34.
Hello, I was wondering about how the material is on inner thigh? I always wear my jeans out from my thighs rubbing together. How well do these last?
Devin Zarda says
I feel your pain on the thigh issue as I’m also a member of the Thick Thigh Club. I haven’t had an issue with these!
Do different style fit differently? I currently have a pair of distressed and am thinking about getting the standard. Does one run bigger/smaller than the other?
Devin Zarda says
I find all of the denim fits fairly similarly.
What is the length of the jeans? I am almost 6 ft tall, so finding jeans that are long enough can be a struggle.
Ty for your reviews. I don’t know what I would do without you. 🙂
Devin Zarda says
So the inseam depends on the style and the size you need.
Sizes 24-34: 27 inch inseam
Sizes 36-44: 28 inch inseam
Sizes 24-34: 29 in
Sizes 36-44: 30 in
Boot cut is 31″ and 32″. I will say that my 5’11” aunt came shopping this past weekend and was shocked when a pair of the regular skinny denim fit her.
Hope this helps!
