Let’s face it: Shopping for a great pair of jeans is a serious workout. When we go looking for a great pair of skinnies, we make sure that they contour our legs like a tight hug, have a waistband that doesn’t gape in the back and cinches in our waists and stomachs. Our favorite pairs have to withstand the test of time, too — they can’t stretch out or fade in the wash, nor can they do that unflattering thing where they bag out around the knees and backside. Sure, shopping for a bikini might be tough, but getting a great pair of jeans — that’s the real toughie!

After ages of searching for great denim that’s not only body-hugging but also friendly on our wallets, we came across a pair of Levi’s skinny jeans we knew we had to add to our repertoire STAT. The pair we found on sale, however, is so much more than an average pair of skinnies: It’s meant to give your figure an extra bit of shaping, too!

The Levi’s 311 Shaping Skinny Jeans are designed to give your bod just a bit of a boost. The wardrobe staple is made with a tummy-slimming panel, which is designed to smooth any outlines and make us look like we just did a hundred sit-ups. There’s also shaping throughout the hips and thighs, as well as leg-lengthening technology to make your gams appear miles long. There’s also a hint of booty lifting, so your time spent squatting at the gym will be even more amplified. There are even extra lengths, so whether we’re looking for a petite fit or long length, both we and our ankles are covered.

The absolute best part of these ultra-skinny Levi’s is the stretch. Unlike traditional styles from brands that offer very little give throughout the leg and at the waist, these are meant to contour you while still giving you plenty of space to breathe. This particular pair allows you to move freely (seriously, we can probably do splits in them without worrying if they’ll tear). Don’t let the stretch fool you, however — just because they can move right along with us doesn’t mean they’ll sag in an unflattering way or look like they’ve been worn for years after a wash or two.

We love the wash on the 311s as well. We can choose from two different ones: A great midnight blue and a beautiful soft black. If you don’t love fade or whiskering on your jeans, this is the style for you: Both washes are the same color throughout, which just adds to the overall effect of making the legs and hips appear slimmer. They’re also perfect for year-round wear and can be worn with boots in the winter or sandals in the summer.

Unlike many “slimming” pairs of jeans, this pair from Levi’s doesn’t have an uncomfortable high-rise: Rather, these boast a medium rise and sit right below our natural waist. This is not only more comfortable if we spend all day sitting at a desk, but it prevents any gaping at the zipper or button closure. It creates a stunning seamless finish and we’re all about just how casual yet classic this style is.

Don’t let Us do all the talking about how awesome these are! Hundreds of reviewers are just as obsessed with the 311 Shaping Skinny Jeans as we are. Many note that they love how this particular pair doesn’t lose its shape even after washing multiple times, while others swear that this design from Levi’s has the most comfortable waistband they’ve ever seen on a pair of jeans. One shopper even declared that after trying on “no less than 50 pairs” they finally found this one style. They were so excellent that they even went back and scored a second pair in white!

One additional thing to note: As much as many of the reviewers dig the unparalleled fit, they note that due to the buttery soft texture of the fabric and the serious stretch, these jeans can run a little large. To combat just how stretchy these are, they recommend sizing down one or two sizes for the most optimal fit imaginable.
