Athletes and Jeans

Athletes and jeans are not something you’ll often hear together in a sentence and is often a very sore point. Jeans are not generally tailored towards an athletes somatotype; small waist, big glutes and quads (and in my case also short legs). Instead, you can either purchase jeans with a gaping waist but good fit around your bum and legs OR jump around the changing room attempting to get your calves into the teeny tiny leg holes of which the waist would potentially fit.

Scrolling through my pictures attempting to find a snap of myself actually in some jeans was more of a challenge than I’d initially thought. Instead, I found myself either in lycra or a skirt. Of course I wear jeans, but the fit is never desirable. The jeans in my wardrobe at the moment are either boyfriend cut with about a gazillion holes in them (much to my family’s dismay) or what are essentially high waisted jeggings. Which is fine, if you
don’t mind either looking like a girl playing dress up in her brothers clothes, that have been adapted (by hole cuttin

g) or if you want everyone to see, very clearly that you in fact have glutes and quads – shocker!

Yes, there are now websites and brands which attest to having ‘Athlete jeans’ even Levi’s had a hack at it, BUT these are generally aimed at men and also what I’d call ‘basic jeans’. I know I shouldn’t complain because there actually is something out there now which is supposed to be for athletes, which a couple of years ago certainly wasn’t the case … but is it really too much to ask for some fashionable jeans which actually fit?! Perhaps.

I’ve collated a few examples of what there is to offer as ‘Athlete Jeans’ and in the high street stores to hopefully portray the contrast:

Athlete Denim

SU8 Relentless Bootcut Jeans
Barbell Apparel Chinos










Highstreet Denim

Allsaints Biker Jeans




Whistles Relaxed Raw Hem







Don’t get me wrong it really is fab that it has actually been recognised that athletes are struggling with jeans and it is certainly a move in the right direction (although this sounds like the biggest groan ever)! All I’m highlighting is how lovely it would be if us athlete fashionistas could comfortably fit into a  pair of biker jeans, without feeling as though they may pop (this did happen once) or are even too revealing!  Maybe a little bit of embroidery and a modern cut would even go a long way?!

Please let me know what you think – am I being too lustful? I’d love to know your own thoughts and experience, KW

I’ve been surfing on-line more than three hours nowadays, but
I never found any fascinating article like yours.
It is pretty value sufficient for me. In my opinion, if
all website owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you did, the internet
might be much more helpful than ever before.

Howdy would you mind letting me know which web host you’re working with?
I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different web
browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most.
Can you suggest a good web hosting provider at a reasonable price?
Kudos, I appreciate it!
