Democracy Jeans Promise Built-in Shapewear—We're Obsessed

Today's Parent

If you're already beyond the newborn checklist stage and back reclaiming your own personal sense of style, these shape-enhancing Democracy Jeans are going to thrill you. These denim wonders are so stylish and affordable that they've racked up over 15,000 Amazon ratings with a nearly-perfect 4.5-star average.

They're so comfortable that some moms even add them to their baby registries for the in-between-sizes months after little comes come along.

What are Democracy "Ab"solution Jeans?

Each pair of Democracy "Ab"solution Jeans comes with the brand's game-changing fit technology built into soft, super-stretchy denim. Hidden power mesh panels offer tummy control and support, while a hidden elastic waistband promises gap-free sitting. A sweetheart-shaped back yoke and clever pockets boost rear assets, too.

The brand's jeggings and straight legs are by far the most popular styles, though we can't stop raving about the Itty Bitty bootcut jeans. Wear them with everything in your closet—we promise you'll be happy you did.

Why Democracy Jeans just may be the best post-baby denim ever

Aside from moms of every stage and style swearing by Democracy Absolution styles, their expanded size and color ranges make them a total hit. Shoppers can choose from dozens of washes and sizes 0 through 24 in most styles. Regular, short and tall sizes are also available. Styles are well under $40, making them an exceptional value—and you can kick your usual shapewear to the curb.

We love how gently supportive the tummy panels are, making them ideal for several weeks post c-section recovery and the inevitable little bulge that comes along with diastasis recti. Reviewers call these the "most flattering jeans ever" and we tend to agree.

How to wash Democracy Jeans

Putting your jeans of all kinds, whether they're your favorite maternity jeans or your kids' favorite pair for school, in a dryer breaks down the fabric. Experts suggest turning your denim inside out, using your best laundry detergent sparingly and running a cool water cycle.


Use a gentle tumble dry setting or hang your Democracy "Ab"solution jeans to preserve shaping and fit-perfecting technologies.

But, if you're like us, you're a total wash-and-dry type of Mom. We get it. Our Democracy Jeans have been through the laundry machine and dryer several times without any damage, which is great news for lazy laundry doers.

The best Democracy "Ab"solution Jeans for women reviews

Mila, a mom of four and five-star Amazon reviewer says, "These are so comfortable! It’s the first pair of jeans I’ve bought and kept since having my daughter in July. She was was my fourth child and fourth c-section—so that means I’m carrying extra weight and have the mom pooch."

She continues, "These look and feel like jeans except they’re so comfortable. The stretch is just right, but they don’t stretch so much that they lose their shape."

"I read all the reviews before getting these jeans and I'm glad I did," writes verified Amazon purchaser, Lisa. "The fit of Democracy Denim is exceptional and so is the jean fabric. I go between a 4 and a 6, so getting jeans to fit just right is somewhat of a challenge."


"I decided to get these to see if they would work for me, and love the stretching waistband on the inside of the back," she continues. "These jeans make my butt look really good."

Another verified Amazon purchaser shares, "I love the fit of these! You know how we all wear maternity jeans as long as it's socially acceptable after having a baby because the elastic band is so comfy? These are that kind of comfy, except also totally flattering."
