We support these brave women and we won’t take it sitting down. Especially since whenever you sit down in low-rise jeans your butt crack pops out.

I know what you’re thinking. We’ve all worn low-rise jeans at some point in our lives. Some of us might even have a lower back tattoo as a never ending reminder of the low rise heyday. We now must make the choice to learn from history. The moment is now to embrace high waisted jeans A.K.A. mom jeans.

Mom jeans have gotten a bad rap for too long. First off, can we stop calling them mom jeans? They’re just jeans that just happen to be unbelievably comfortable and keep our bellies safely nestled in denim. What’s wrong with that? I’d argue this is not just a mom problem. It’s more than just we moms who hate the low-rise jean. It’s any human woman with a shape. Literally any shape. And that’s why we must start calling mom jeans what they really are — the only choice for jeans.

You might say, don’t worry about it because fashion styles come and go. You might say low-rise jeans are inevitable. Well, they just gave us Spanx jeans. Are we ready to see that go? I don’t think so! Let’s be clear, low-rise jeans show things they shouldn’t and simply do not need to. Low-rise jeans are the crop tops of pants. I will be the first to say that I’m proud of my c-section scar, but that doesn’t mean I want to flaunt it at a Starbucks.

So, what do we do? Start protests at every jean store. Post in mom groups. Contact famous internet mom, Chrissy Teigen. She has to have some jean power. Most importantly, when you’re feeling weak, think about the belly chains, bitter cold breezes on your tailbone and the inhumane necessity to get a Brazilian wax down just to wear your low-rise jeans. Not ok! So, let us come together and chant this line when it comes to jean fashion- when they go low, we go high.

Now, let’s get waisted!
