As a plus size woman, my experience with clothing has largely taken place outside of my comfort zone—and usually not in a good way. I used to have to fight and squeeze to fit into the clothing I loved, which made me feel super uncomfortable and unworthy. But now, I willingly play outside of my comfort zone a lot more since there are now so many different accessible styles of plus size clothing. This includes the plus size mom jeans I am wearing here.
When it comes to jeans—and most of the clothing I wear in general—I love a tight, curve-hugging fit. So I usually stick to plus size skinny jeans when wearing denim. However, mom jeans and boyfriend jeans are quite the opposite. Similarly to plus size boyfriend jeans, but I decided to take a chance on these Distressed Mom Jeans from Fashion Nova Curve because I thought they were so cute and versatile. When I first tried them on, I didn’t feel as confident as I usually feel when I slide on a good pair of skinny jeans. But I gave myself some time to wear them around and I twirled around in the mirror once or twice to get adjusted. After wearing them for a couple of hours, I started to like wearing them more—especially after I paired them with this cute Plus Size Wrap Top.
And even though I am still adjusting to the mom jeans life, I kind of went a bit crazy and ordered a whole bunch of mom and boyfriend jeans. So expect to see those on the blog soon! If you’re into the mom jeans trend, I have included a bunch of different styles in the shop widget below for you to check out!

SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 2X in both the jeans and the top, which is my usual size. The jeans are meant to fit a little baggy so I think they fit me well! The top fit me perfectly, too. However, I will warn y’all, this wrap top has a very deep plunging neckline. So you may need some fashion tape or a safety pin!
