Are you supposed to get them two to three sizes up? 🤷🏻‍♀️
Feeling massive right now as my normal size body doesn’t work in mom jeans and I had to buy two sizes up, is that normal? They are so tight round my waist 😩

I love mom Jean's but yes they do seem to be tighter round the waist!

Some have no stretch at all and you may need to size up but have a look for ones with a bit of elastic in and then you might be able to get your normal size Smile

(The ones I wear are from simply be)

I bought a size or so up yes. Ignoring the number, they look and feel great!

Gap, by the way.

Get the one with ‘stretch’ material for better comfort

Yup I always have to size up 1-2 sizes, I think it's because compared to skinnies they have zero stretch. My waist is my best feature but I still manage to zip up mom jeans in my normal size.
