In contrast to ordinary trousers, shaping jeans have a particularly high proportion of elastane. This not only makes them more comfortable to wear (not to mention that the models are much easier to put on), but also have a figure-shaping effect: in other words, they support the thighs and buttocks without squeezing the legs. And yet the corresponding models retain their fit, even after wearing the shaping jeans several times or for a longer period of time. However, the high-tech stretch and push-up effect are not the only two advantages the pants have to offer.

The high elastane content makes the shaping jeans particularly stretchy – for this reason it is advisable to choose a size smaller when buying trousers. The pants expand automatically over time.

Never use fabric softener when washing shaping jeans. In addition, the trousers should not be washed too often or hotter than 30 or 40 degrees (see label). And the dryer is also taboo.

When trying on shaping jeans, it is important that they fit snugly without squeezing your legs or thighs. For the comfort test, you should be able to move and sit down in the pants.

And one more tip at the end: The shaping jeans should not only look good on you, but also fit perfectly. This doesn’t mean so much that the pants obviously look good on you, but rather that you should feel comfortable in them. When standing and walking, while sitting or lying down.
