Christmas Gift Guide: jeans by Miraclebody

Christmas Gift Guide: jeans by Miraclebody 1As you know, I've been resisting the skinny jean trend with all my might.

The ONLY way I can see myself wearing skinny jeans is in the fall/winter with tall boots over them. This look is trendy and terrific. I've seen many of my most stylish friends pull it off with flair and ease.

Miraclebody ("look 10 lbs. lighter in 10 seconds!") recently sent me a pair of Skinny Minnie Jeans and I thought, "Hey! I'm going to go for it!"

All in all? I felt hip in them and I adored the dark wash, but I also felt sort of...well...conspicuous. Like I was walking in places with this flashing "look at me!" sign.

Miraclebody jeans come in 4 styles - bootcut, straight, skinny, and leggings. They feature a patent-pending material that "slims, flattens, and controls."

Back to the skinny jeans - I'm still trying to decide. Tim says they look like riding pants (ha!). Oprah says they're one of her favorite things.

What do YOU say...?

Do you love the skinny jean trend or do you wish it would go away? Have you ever tried Miraclebody jeans?

  1. Holy cow, if I looked like you do in them, I'd love skinny jeans! I've never even tried them on because it would be horrific. I'd love to try the Miraclebody jeans. I've had 3 kids and can't seem to find jeans that look good on me even though I've lost almost all of the baby weight. My body is just weird now. :)

  2. I think these skinny jeans look sooo cute! I would love to try them! After 2 csections I am nowhere near a flat tummy and I would love to try these! lol.

  3. When I was slimmer I loved the leggings look. Older and a little bigger so I wouldn't go for skinny jeans now. Hooray for those who can though! I've never had the opportunity to try Miraclebody Jeans.

  4. We are consistently going over the skinny jean debate in my house. I got one pair and thought they looked very 80s on me(in a bad way) but my two oldest boys love the whole skinny look...apparently they make skinny shirts now, too. I just tell them they are lucky they are skinny because I don't think overweight kids could pull it off.
    As for Miraclebody I have heard only good things about their product...and, btw, you look great in the photo of you....not conspicuous in any way so I am sure no one else saw you and thought you looked as if there was a sign saying "look at me" on you!:)

  5. I need new jeans - especially if they are going to make me look 10lbs lighter...thanks for the chance to win!

  6. I too have been resisting the whole skinny jean thing. Not because I think they look bad (I think they look great on OTHER people) but because I'm not sure I can pull it off anymore. But maybe if I had a pair of longer boots and paired it with my favorite L O N G cardigan it would look fab! I saw these jeans on Oprah and it sparked my interest. I'd certainly love to look 10 pounds less. LOVE. And maybe if I actually tried a pair of the skinny jeans I might totally fall in love with them. I think you look great in them, by the way! :) Love the boots.

  7. I have never heard of miracle body jeans, I would love to try a pair on. I don't think I would wear skinny jeans, I would feel akward in them.

  8. I have the hardest time finding jeans since I gained a few pounds. I would love to have a pair of Miracle body jeans, because I can use them to hid the fact that I've gained a few pounds.


  9. You look good in the jeans! I haven't tried this before...I like the skinny jean trend, but I haven't found a pair I feel confident in.

  10. I love the skinny jean trend even though it is cuter on others than my body's current state. Not to say that I dislike my body- it was involved in creating a sweet little boy so I am amazed with it. Skinny jeans just don't work for me right now. I am, however, curious about the "flatten" and "controls" aspect of Miraclebody jeans. Did you find that they lived up to that claim?

    1. To be honest? Not really.

      That said, I've heard many, many people rave about them so perhaps it depends on your figure and what style you get?

  11. I have tried to like skinny jeans, I really have. They look so trendy and chic on my friends. Several times I have tried them on at different stores, figuring I just need to try a different brand. Problem is, skinny jeans just don't like me!

  12. No, I don't particularly care for the skinny leg style. Have never had a pair of Miraclebody jeans, but I expect they would be comfortable.

  13. I don't think I have the right body shape to pull off the skinny jeans look -- it's a look that requires much smaller hips than I have. My husband probably wouldn't mind if I wore something like that, though!

  14. I don't like the skinny jeans - not even on skinny people. They're maybe "okay" with a long tunic top over them and high boots, but that basically covers up the "skinny" aspect. I haven't yet tried Miraclebody jeans, but I'd love the chance.

  15. Yes, they do look like riding pants, but I like them. Since we have had horses they look normal to me! I have one pair but also wear boots with them and it looks cute. You look good in them.

  16. i am not sure .. but the picture of me in skinny jeans --- hmmm pictures of sausages jump in my mind LOL :) i might be wrong ...would love to try them

  17. yes they do look like riding pants and that's a look I've liked for eons now, they're smart & attractive and would give these to vicki if I win

  18. I love the skinny jean trend and I think any body can wear them, it's just a matter of how you style the top! I also love them tucked into boots like you've done.

  19. I love wearing skinny jeans and would like to try Miraclebody jeans - thanks for the chance :)

  20. I am entering this for my granddaughter since they do not come in my size. She is the one needing jeans. She will graduate from college in May but her jeans are old and worn out now. She has never worn Miraclebody and I guess would have to wear the skinny jeans as most of them are 36" inseam and she is 30 in.. She usually wears straight or boot cut jeans and she is petite. She will like the mid rise. That is the only kind she wears and the pockets are flap, her favorite.

  21. I used to wear bootcut exclusively, but then I decided to buy a pair of skinny jeans on a whim and I haven't worn anything since! I love how they look, especially with boots.

  22. I LOVE my skinny jeans! I put on some weight and had to put them away for a while, but I'm pleased to say that I've been rockin' 'em for the last couple of weeks and am over the moon! No, I don't think they should go away - for me, at least, they were good incentive to lose weight.

  23. I really like the skinny jean trend....IF they are on the right body type. I say if you got it, flaunt it! Thank you for the lovely giveaway.

  24. I haven't tried Miracle body jeans, and can't for the life of me figure out what the real difference is between skinny jeans and leggins?

  25. I haven't tried the "skinny" jeans since I'm afraid they will make me look the opposite of "skinny". I would love to try the Miraclebody jeans. Thanks.

  26. Mandatory:
    I love the skinny jeans trend. I think they look great with a pair of booties or knee high boots!
    I've never tried Miraclebody jeans, but I would love to!


  27. Since I don't have a skinny body, I think I would not look good kn skinny jeans---I''ll stick to my boot cut jeans.

  28. I love skinny jeans. I'm short and tend to carry my extra weight in the belly area, so I think when you throw a boot cut or wide legged jean on my frame it actually makes me look shorter and chubbier. I have decent legs and so missed the jeans of the 80's and 90's!!!
    I have a pair that I wear with mid calf boots for now, but I think they will also look good with high heals or sandals in warmer weather!

  29. I think I"m shaped wrong for skinny jeans. Too much thigh/butt that needs to be balanced somehow. My DIL assures me I could "rock that look". Haven't tried Miraclebody, but would certainly love to.

  30. I tried on a pair of skinny jeans for the first time last night and was surprised at how much I liked them. The store was out of the right size for me, but I will be ordering them. I have never tried Miraclebody jeans.

  31. I love my skinny jeans and I love the low rise jeans too. The Miraclebody jeans look great. I never owned a pair of those jeans,


  32. I do not like skinny jeans at all!! However that is all my kids will wear! I would love to win these jeans though! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  33. I haven't decided if I like it or not. I like the idea of looking skinnier. I also like the 'control' part of the jeans.

  34. I like straight leg or skinny jeans styles. Being petite, flared legs don't work so well for me. Looking 10 lbs thinner sounds like the icing on the cake!

  35. I love the Samantha boot cut jeans, they look very slimming and I want to try them out especially if you can look 10 lbs lighter when you put them on, that works for me. not really into the skinny jeans I have tried them before and depends on your height if they look ok or not, I am short so they really dont do much for me I think they look better if you are taller and have long legs, it will elongate your body but not on shorter people

    thanks for the giveaway

  36. i want some of the leggings so bad! I think it is fun they are back, loved them 25 years ago too!
    knowing they may reduce the saddle bags and lower riding behind is a huge plus!
    tattgiff at centurytel dot net

  37. i haven't tried these jeans, but I would love to. & I wish the skinny jean trend ON MEN & BOYS would go away! lol At least hopefully before my son is that age. Yikes.

  38. never tried miracle body but have been wanting to. and i LOVE skinny jeans. they look good on everybody and are comfy. jeggings on t he other hand can go play on the fwy. ;)

  39. I think that skinny jeans look good on skinny girls, of which I am not one! *Sigh* You look fabulous, darling, but I need me some of those MiracleBody jeans to visually drop 10 LBS - simply put, I need a miracle!

  40. I love the look of skinny jeans with boots, but I've never worn skinny jeans myself because I don't have the long and lean legs I'd need to feel comfortable in them.

  41. Will these jeans really make me look 10lbs lighter? I'm willing to find out! Bootcut is more my style than the skinny jeans.

  42. I've never tried them before I like the skinny jeans, but my heart will always belong to the bootcut style, thanks!

  43. I do it with boots only too! I wish the trend would go away because I usually get my jeans in juniors' department and right now the selection is not so good because of the skinny trend.

  44. I have massive calves--my mom always said they were "strong" calves, but to me, they're just big honkin' ham hock calves. So yeah, I try to avoid the whole skinny jean trend. I would totally love to try the boot-cut variety of Miraclebody jeans, though!

  45. Now that i'm in my mid 50's I look at Miracle Jeans as a big help, I try to stay acitive but i need all the help I can get Thanks for the chance to win such a great product, I can really use it.

  46. funny you should ask. i was resisting the skinny jean trend because i don't much like trends for the sake of trending.... but have been drawn in and actually tried a few. to me it can really only work if i wear them with boots. the alternative is looking like i did back in the 80's and i always said i wouldn't revisit those days. still, it's getting harder to resist! i did purchase a pair of gray cord skinny's. they're less stretchy than the jeans and inside boots, they look cute. :D

  47. I DO like the skinny jean trend. :-) I have never tried miraclebody jeans but I've heard a lot of good things about them so I would love to own a pair.

  48. I wore skinny jeans back in the late 80s. It was a big mistake. :-) I am not a fan of them. However, you look great!

  49. at first I though no way would i ever where skinny jeans. but now I love them, they are so much easier to wear with tall boots. I could use some miracle jeans after giving birth 2 months ago.

  50. I'm not a real big fan of skinny jeans but they looked good on you with the boots. 10 pounds off...I can deal with that.


  52. I have been trying to win a pair of these jeans since my girlfriend won a pair, they are absolute so great looking, she says they feel great and now I sure would like to win the miracle jeans too. Thanks so much.

  53. I like the look of skinny jeans, but I have yet to find any that look good on me. I have not tried Miraclbody jeans.

  54. I have not tried Miraclebody jeans, although I'd love to. I tend to prefer a slimmer jean. I have skinny, skinny legs and too much fabric looks weird on me.

  55. I don't have the figure for the skinny jean. Some women look great in them. Some look ridiculous in them and don't even know it, I guess. Yes I have a pair of Miraclebody Jeans and I love them. I hope to get more soon. They are very comfortable and give more confidence.

  56. I so want to try a pair of miracle jeans. just haven't justified the spend yet. :) I love wearing skinny jeans - actually they are my favorites with a longer loose top and ballet flats or boots.

  57. Oh wow, I soooo need these! I am at the tail end of back to back pregnancies, and my baby is due Jan. 14th. My kids will literally be 12 months and 2 weeks apart, and both c-sections. So my poor body needs help! And for me, the skinny jean is kind of intimidating...MAYBE I could pull it off, but I am more likely to choose the Samantha bootcut jean!

  58. Skinny jeans just don't work for those of us who have hips and thighs. We wish we could get into them and look thinner but I prefer the boot cut.

  59. My calves are too curvy for skinny jeans, give me a good bootcut any day! I havent tried miraclebody yet

  60. You look awesome. I finally got my first pair of skinny jeans a few months ago, I mainly wear them with sandals because it's been pretty warm where we live but I love the look with boots. I've never heard of Miraclebody, but they look really cute!

  61. I do like the trend with boots. Not so much a fan of the skinny jeans with heals or converse shoes. I have a couple of pairs that I wear with boots though! :)

  62. Well, with my wide hips and skinny ankles, I've never even entertained the idea of skinny jeans. But, I would love to tuck my jeans into a good pair of boots. I've got bad varicose veins, so owning a pair of tall boots is a must if I want to wear shorts or skirts. Being able to wear them with a good pair of jeans would be even better! A little bit curious about this brand now...

  63. I haven't tried these jeans however I do love the name they have and wishing it really does work! As for skinny jeans, in my younger days, sure bring it on however I'm at that age where I shouldn't always go with the trends.

  64. I've tried on skinny jeans, but the tightness around the ankles bothers me and I just don't think it's very flattering for my body shape. I'd love to try some MiracleBody jeans though. I've had a pair of Not Your Daughter's Jeans (a similar concept), and I LOVED them, however I'm in need of a new size. What a great giveaway!

  65. I totally want to try that look as well! I wouldn't wear skinny jeans otherwise, but I am so tempted to go buy a pair, along with some boots (I'm thinking the warm, soft Ugg-type boots). I think it would be so fun to wear!

    Totally know what you mean by looking conspicuous. I've had that feeling before, too.

  66. As a woman of excess fluff I wish the skinny jeans would just all go away, I have no intention of trying them at all. You however look great in them.

  67. I think you look FABULOUS! Those jeans look like they fit you perfectly and the boot seals the deal.

    I'm with you. I've been resisting the skinny jean for a while too. I could maybe make it work with flats in the non-snowy season but as for right now? I don't have boots fashionable enough to pull it off. It's too much money for me to justify spending on a fashionable boot when I really just wear my Uggs every single day. But I have to admit a part of me feels out left out on the few times I actually do go out with adults and I can't dress with the trends. Oh well!

  68. I'm with you Stephanie, the "skinny jean" takeover has changed how people are dressing. I love the look with a tall pair of boots though...that I can do! Maybe I'll convert to the skinny jean side soon! :)

  69. I'm with you - I like them with boots, although I haven't tried it myself. You look great - not conspicuous at all! Would love to have a different pair for postpartum weight loss motivation :) What a treat a nice pair of jeans would be.

  70. I'm not one to follow a trend anyway, but I do remember sporting the skinny jeans in the early 90's, but that was back when I was a stick and looked good in them. Now - not so much, so my vote would be "just go away." I have never tried Miraclebody, but if it means I don't have to go shopping for pants - YIPPEE!!!

  71. I am way too scared to try the skinny jean trend. I'm a curvier girl and not sure it would be flattering. Maybe if these jeans DO make me look 10 lbs leaner, I would try it out!

  72. You look fantastic, as usual, and you can totally pull of the skinny jeans looks. I on the other hand...not so sure...remember my comment about long and leans? I am neither long, nor lean, but I do love the way some gals look with skinny jeans and boots and you wear it well!! A friend just gave me a pair of Joe's is the first time I have ever had expensive jeans...or anything other than Gap jeans to be honest...and I must a difference! I would love to venture out and be brave enough to try on others! It's true what they say..when it comes to jeans, it is worth the extra money to get a quality pair! And with a name like Miraclebody, who wouldn't want to try them!?

  73. I think skinny jeans can look great -- on other people. I found one pair that I liked for me, but for the most part, I haven't had much success. But hey, if they can take off 10 pounds, that just might do it!

  74. I would love to try jeans that make me look 10 pounds lighter! I have not tried on a pair of skinny jeans but then at the same time I don't leave near a mall and I am not going to order a pair online just to try them. Maybe when we go home for Christmas I will try a pair on b/c they look cute on everyone I have seen wearing them.

  75. I love the new trend! I recently bought three new pairs of skinny jeans and I'm loving it. I've never heard of Miraclebody, but I would love to try them out, they look great on you!

  76. You look amazing in that outfit! I think the skinny jean and boot style is very cute, but it does not fit my personality or style (or lack of style).
    Now, I would definitely love to try jeans that make me look ten pounds lighter!

  77. Seriously... I LOVE skinny jeans!! I love that they fit nicely in high black boots! They don't get bunched up ( i hate that!).. anyway I think you look awesome in those jeans!!

  78. I was always very scared to try skinny jeans. I am fuller in the hip area and I thought they just brought extra attention to tha area. I have tried on some pairs and realized that it is not that bad, especially with cute boots! But I still am very picky on the topic of skinny jeans. I would LOVE to try these jeans! Maybe they will be just what I am look for! Thanks!

  79. I think the skinny jeans look super cute on you! I bought a pair pre-pregnancy on clearance from Banana Republic but didn't realize they were way too short until after I wore them a few times and washed them. Pretty disappointing start, but I'd love to have the chance to give Miraclebody jeans a try!

  80. I'm very leery of the skinny jeans trend. I'm betting it won't last long and that when it does go, we'll be saying, "What were we thinking?!?" I do own a pair that I like wearing with a pair of boots over them. Before I had my baby I thought they looked good, but I am a little thicker in the hips and glute area after having a baby, so I'm hoping to slim down soon so I can pop back into my regular jeans.

  81. I'm not sure about skinny jeans...I have yet to try a pair...I keep going back to my boot cuts...I probably should at least try on a pair...we shall see.

  82. I like the trend...on anyone but me! You look great! And I think the look is cute with a big slouchy sweater, or a cropped biker jacket. But on me? Forget it. I just know that the style does not suit my figure, and I prefer to wear styles that suit me rather than follow fashion. I'm a boot-cut girl.

  83. Steph! You look terrific in those jeans!

    ME? I am a girl with hips and would have to do with the bootcut legs rather than the skinny! Do they come up high on the waist? or are they low rise?

  84. Anything with the word "miracle" is worth a try for me! I had a miracle suit once it it was worth the investment. Thanks for the opportunity to win this!

  85. 10 pounds lighter, eh? I bet 20 pounds lighter on my legs and everything is pushed up to make my muffin top look bigger. LOL

    They really are cute. I've never worn skinny jeans, for much of the same reason you haven't. However, when sporting them with tall boots and a long sweater I think they look quite cute.


  86. I would love to pull this fashion trend off but I am having the hardest time finding boots that I love. They are all so tight...or maybe my calves are just too big! lol! I'm thinking the bootcut may be a better choice for me. :)

  87. They look cute on you! But, all the skinny jeans I've tried on have accentuated every last curve plus a few I didn't know I had. It's just not a good look for me.

  88. Have never heard of this brand until now... what a great concept, 10lbs lighter in seconds. You look awesome in them btw.

  89. I truly don't think I can pull off the skinny jean look, but I think they look adorable on you! I've been wanting to try the Miraclebody Bootcut jeans! Everyone says they really do make you look 10 lbs. lighter! Who wouldn't want that?

  90. You, I have to say, look great in those jeans. If everybody looks at you - well, its because its worth looking.

    I don't wear skinny jeans too often, but I have a terrific pair of boots that I wear once or twice a year. They'd look great with the jeans... or at least as good as anything looks on this aging body.

  91. I tried on skinny jeans/ jeggings once and they made me look like howard from" big bang theory" . Not cool. I would go with bootcut. ;)

  92. I guess that I'm just not very trendy because I've never tried or purchased skinny jeans. These Miraclebody jeans look great on you - I'm almost thinking that I should give them a try...almost.

  93. I have never seen these Miraclebody jeans before, but they do look cute. You almost have to wear skinny jeans if your going to wear tall boots, regular jeans just don't fit in the leg of the boot, I've tried. :) I do like skinny jeans on most people, and even leggings but I am not sure they should be combined into jeggings!!!

  94. I'm with you...I could probably only wear the skinny jeans with boots over them.

    I LOVED my skinny jeans in the 80's and the only reason I finally quit wearing them skinny was because they quit selling them. I was forced to find something in a straight leg that I didn't hate. It took me a long time to adjust. Like an addict, I'm afraid to try the skinny again for fear it will get out of control. LOL

  95. I have not tried Miraclebody jeans but I would love to look 10 pounds lighter! I like skinny jeans but I also like the fudge my sons talked me into making tonight, so the Miraclebody jeans might be my only chance for skinny jeans!

  96. I've never tried skinny jeans. There's a little part of me that wants to, but only with boots like you did. A big part of me really loves my boot cuts, and why fix what isn't broke, right?
    Those though? Look GREAT on you!

  97. Christmas gift guide!!! Love it, I loved your ideas last year!! Anyways, I wish skinny jeans would disappear - I think they look super cute on some people but my husband is really into me trying new fashion things and I'm afraid he's going to try to talk me into wearing some and that's a sight nobody wants to see!!

    autumn398 @

  98. Hmmm... I don't think I am ready to wear skinny jeans! But, I love the Straight Jeans I saw on the website. I've never heard of this brand. But, I am more than willing to win a pair & try it out. :)

  99. I'm with you about the skinny jeans. I can't decide. Doesn't the term skinny jeans mean mostly skinny people should wear them? I think I am more of a straight fit kind of girl but would love to do the jeans in boots look. Maybe I should just go for it of I win these?

  100. I've resisted, but all the girls on the college campus where I work wear jeans tucked into their boots. They all look so adorable, but I think my, ummm, rear, is just a bit too big. You look absolutely terrific in this photo, though! Maybe I'll have to give it a shot.
    cheatingpiggies at hotmail dot com

  101. wellllll - miracle jeans won't do much for my big preggo body NOW...but perhaps in 5 months these will come in HANDY!!

    Did they make you feel 10lbs slimmer???

  102. I am not shaped for Skinny Jeans, but I think that they look darling tucked into tall boots...but ONLY tucked into tall boots! I am not a fan of many other ways to wear them.

    Stephanie- you look darling in that outfit! I say you sport it more often!

  103. I can totally relate to the "Look at me!" feeling. But that may also be because I usually wear mine with a pair of high-heeled boots, and both are a new trend to my closet. And I must say that after wearing both for a couple of months, I'm starting to feel more comfortable and "me" in them.

  104. It took me awhile to take hold of the trend...and like you...i really only wear them with tall boots. I feel like I'm always tugging at them though to pull them

  105. I love this look and wear it all the time. I would consider skinny jeans only if I wore them with boots. I guess it's not any different than wearing leggings (which I LOVE to wear with boots)

    You do not look flashy or over done....I think you look classy and trendy!

  106. I love the look when it's done classy and with cute boots...but I've been too afraid to get any for myself. Getting the straight leg is the closest I get! ha! If I could find some that would actually make me look thinner and be stylin', I'd do it in a heart beat!

  107. I think skinny jeans with boots looks fantastic, but otherwise I am not a big fan. I honestly don't know if I could pull the look off- but would love to look 10 lbs lighter! ;)

  108. I have never heard of this brand. It sounds like a brand of jean that I need to try... Although I am not sure if I can fork out $100 on a pair of jeans

  109. Haven't tried the skinny jean, but I do like them paired with the boots. I haven't tried the Miraclebody pants, but they sound pretty slimming!

  110. I agree, I'd have to wear boots with a pair of skinny jeans, and am not sure even then if I could pull off the look! I've never heard of Miraclebody, but hey, anything that can take 10 pounds off has got my vote!

  111. OH my gosh! Stephanie, you look great. I feel the same way, tho. I LOVE the look, but I feel like people are going to look at me and think, "she's trying too hard." Maybe because it's so different from what I usually look like. I think I should have changed styles when we first moved here so people would have never known otherwise. Alas.
    BUT. I think you look cute. And I want a pair of boots.

  112. I haven't tried Miraclebody and actually hadn't heard of them before now. I'm not a fan of the skinny jean, but I agree that jeans tucked into tall boots can be a really cute look and one I'll try out after I open my new tall boots for Christmas.

  113. nope. I LOVE the trend, particularly this fall/winter with tall boots. I only have one pair, from GAP, and I'm pretty sure they don't make me look 10 lbs. lighter. :)
