Simply Be Denim Review #ShowUsYourSass


I was amazed when I tried on these jeans. Jeans never fit over my belly button. As an apple shaped girl with a protruding stomach, I grew accustomed to the defeat. Though I love and accept myself, I often struggle with this part of my body. It’s picked on the most by the Internet and sometimes myself. It’s not flat and smooth like other plus size women. This comparison and self acceptance is something I work on everyday. 

Having never experienced this type of outfit before, I was overwhelmed with joy as I cautiously zipped the denim over my belly button and the largest part of my stomach. To tuck my button down shirt inside of the jeans was even more overwhelming. I gained fashion freedom. I felt that freedom when I wore a crop top for the first time. I felt it when I wore a bodycon dress without shapewear. I felt it when I stopped worrying so much about my VBO (visible belly outline). And I felt it again when I wore these jeans. 


The Hollie Girlfriend Jeans are from Simply Be’s new denim collection. The mid-rise jeans are a relaxed fit with all day comfort and perfectly placed rips and patches. Though they slightly loosen in the thigh throughout the day, I recommend ordering them in your usual size. Available in sizes 8 - 28, the jeans come in a light and dark wash and regular and long length. I’m wearing the dark wash, regular length, in a size 26. 

Thank you to Simply Be for sending the denim for review. I am so glad I gave this style a try. It brought me so much happiness and confidence. The power of fashion is so real!
