Jennifer Aniston was totally sporting trouser jeans while in Chicago filming The Break-Up, but are we all to abandon our ultra-low-rise jeans? Enter LA-based company Not Your Daughter’s Jeans. The company’s Tummy Tuck Jeans feature a patented criss cross fabric which flattens tummies, contours hips and lifts buttocks, and most importantly allows women to go down one jean size. If you’re a Gold Coast shopper get yours at Only She. Other Chicagoans might visit any city Nordstroms. A few Lifestyles staffers over at the Sun-Times tried out the brand, but will you (or your momma)?
