Diesel gave me a super stretchy, ultra comfy pair of jogg jeans and I flippin’ love ’em

The other day Diesel got hold of me to offer a pair of their new jogg jeans. Initially I was hesitant as I imagined them to look like those weird skinny leg, drawstring tracksuit pants with the saggy crotch and, as I’m a normal girl with a normal girl body I knew they wouldn’t flatter me. But, a quick google later, I discovered Diesel’s idea of joggers are rad, butt-flattering jeans that serve up ‘the stretch of jerseyย and the look of denim’.

Seriously. While they look like regular denim fabric they’re as stretchy as hell to the point where you could happily wear them to a cross fit class, provided you didn’t mind people starting at you. You big, ole embarrassing weirdo, you.

Anyway, on the topic of embarrassing things, let’s get stuck into my Diesel jogg jeans photoshoot, shall we? This involved dragging my long suffering cousin Pete into the blazing, mid day sun on winter’s hottest day to find a cool, ‘streety’ spot that wasn’t in direct sunlight so as to not make me look like a squinty jelly fish and scream at him take shots from angles that made me look skinny and young.

So, let’s kick things off with a shotย where Pete shot me from above to inadvertently make me look super short.

Now let’s zoom in for that detail shot!

I love the leather detail on the pocket.

And that the super subtle badge on my butt isn’t totally in your face.

Except when I'm getting my cousin Pete to take shots of my butt. That wasn't awkward.

Now, last but not least, lets finish up with two ‘action’ shots, showing you just how ‘flexi’ my new threads are.ย Only problem is I’m not. This is literally as high as I can lift my leg without screaming. Also, WHAT am I pointing at? Can someone just break out the hook and drag me away, please?

On the plus size, we’d finally found a flattering flash setting.

I’m also rather fond of this, albeit strange, wall push-up shot we did in a bid to show off the side seam, but mostly because my tricep actually look thin.

Hideous crack o' dawn hikes and prom walks are starting to pay off.

Want a pair yourself? You’ll find them in all Diesel stores around the country with prices starting at R3 200. Also, these are a few things you need to know.

  • Each pair feels like brushed cotton. Be prepared to be the creepster who strokes her thighs all day.
  • They go up in size by two sizes at a time. I.e. you get a 26 and 28 but not a 27.
  • Buy a size smaller than you’d usually take. I never thought a 26 would fit me (I’m a 27 on a good day) but they do!
  • They look great the day they come out of the wash but by the end of day two they can start to look a little too stretched out. Never to the point where your butt looks saggy, but they just stretch out a bit.
  • Once you wash them, they immediately snap back to ‘day one’.

Love, love
