They are supposed to flatten a muffintop and shape your bottom so that it's curvaceous and not wide and/or flattened.

Click on the informercial!

Looks interesting. I have seen other jeans that are made to make you look slimmer and lift the butt - the idea is not new.

I have not tried any of them -

Yesterday was the first time I've heard about them.
I usually don't watch infomercials but I had the tv going while I was doing some dusting and these jeans seem to fit every body type and for the too big in the waist jeans I normally find or the muffin top problem, they're supposed to fit and I guess if they make my 50 year old butt look good, that's a nice perk.
I'm thinking of ordering them but they have 2 inseams, a 29 and a 33. I'm tall but I think my inseam is 31.

I was in the jeans business many moons ago and I can see the "secret" is in the under wear called the bottom shaper, without it the problem of bulging is still there. Also the jeans is high-waist, notice they are comparing it to a low-waist jeans... emphasizing the muffin top bulge. They hide their high waist under the top so you won't see they are really comparing 2 completely different styles.

That's not good. High waist jeans don't work for me.

What I look for are dark denim, a little strech - just 2%, boot cut - makes my legs look longer - I go for an in-between waist - not "Mom jeans" but not teenager low rider jeans -

Yep, that's what I like is a waist in between. Not low but not high.

I sent them an email about the waist and they gave the rise measurements for whatever size was ordered.
I measured myself and it looks like the jeans would come up a couple of inches above my bellybutton and that's not a good look for me.

Me too. I bought a pair of NYDJ and I like them...except they had to be shortened and the tailor didn't finish the hems correctly.

I like a midrise. I don't need my 46 yr old tummy hanging out in public but I don't want jeans up to my bra either.

I wish they'd market jeans for heavier teens and young adults to hide muffin tops. My older daughter is NOT built like her skinny minnie friends but she wants to wear the same clothes they do. Her muffin top wrecks the look of anything she wears (IMNSHO). She'd rather die than wear anything else though...if they aren't low rise...they are Mom Jeans.
