Do These Jeggings Stretch?
The Sky High Jegging has an 11″ front rise, so it really is high, reaching my belly button almost. It’s high at the back too with a 15″ rise, but they kept the pockets in the same place as they usually do so they are still flattering on the butt.

I hate it when high rise jeans have pockets that are placed high up to compensate as they don’t sit right on the butt, but luckily these do. They are super skinny with a 9.75″ leg opening and an inseam of around 28-29″ so they truly are a classic high rise skinny.

Amount of Stretch
Even though these are made from 99% cotton and 1% elastane, the amount of stretch in them is incredible! They feel like spandex or like a legging, but made from denim.

You could literally do yoga and more in these if you want to! They are that comfortable and stretchy, plus breathable and not scratchy on the skin, so these have a lot of plus points.

Moving onto the wash, the light blue shade of it is really pretty and perfect for the end of the Summer. Combining the huge distressed areas with this makes a great casual jean.

The only downside to these is the lap whiskering as I love mine to look authentic and natural, but you can tell these are done by machine since they look quite stiff and accurately placed more so than in a natural way. They do stand out quite a bit depending on what light you catch them in, but for their price, they really are a good pair of jeans.

Some Things To Consider
I have always found that cheaper jeans suffer in fit when compared to premium denim, however I have always loved that American Eagle really get it right on the back pockets with their jeans.

They are small enough and positioned in a great way so that they are flattering on the butt and that’s something that I admire for a cheaper brand. Not a lot do this! These also have faux front pockets so you can’t use them, only the back pockets are functioning, but this makes the lap sit closer to your skin.

The Verdict
I took these in size 4 which is my usual American Eagle size and for reference I’m between a 26 and 27 in premium denim. These fitted me from the off quite perfectly, but I’ve worn them about 3 times so far and they have stretched out a bit and become slightly baggy. I did expect this though as it happens often with non premium denim, so my advice would probably be going with as small a size as you can fit into and wait for them to stretch out a bit.
