They boast Best Jeans are made from Shape-Tex denim fabric. Denim is made from cotton with a twill weave that gives it strength and a diagonal ribbing. According to Wikipedia, stretch denim contains about 3% spandex, which allows it to stretch up to 15%, but shortens the life of the garment.
Best Jeans also states it has real belt loops, a brass button and real back pockets (this also means it has no zipper or front pockets). Best Jeans has 4 different looks – Black, Dark Wash, Medium Wash, and Light Wash – and comes in sizes that fit waists from 24-38.
What they say makes Best Jeans the, well, best jeans is that when you put them on they will smooth out all your bulges and lift your butt up to 2 inches, making you look sexier without dieting or going to the gym. They claim you’ll look up to 2 sizes smaller and are as comfortable as leggings.
How Much Will a Pair of Best Jeans Cost to Try?
Best Jeans offers 2 different ways to purchase: you can buy up front for $29.99, which includes free shipping, or you can pay $1 plus $6.99 shipping and try them for 30 days. If you decide to keep Best Jeans, they’ll charge you $29.99 making the total $37.98.

“Bottom” Line: Are Best Jeans REALLY The Best Jeans?
Stretch denim jeans like Best Jeans offers are very popular for all shapes and sizes because they tend to smooth out any bulges… that is, when they fit properly.
Best Jeans is new as of this writing in July 2015 so we couldn’t find any reviews of women who have actually tried them on.
We can tell you that Tristar Products has had over 1000 complaints filed with the BBB in the last 3 years.
Tristar Products also sells Genie Slim Jeggings (a type of stretch pant that looks like denim but isn’t). This product has received 170 reviews on our website and averages just 1.5 stars. The biggest complaints are that the sizes are too small, the product is cheaply made, they have lousy customer service, and it takes a very long time to receive them.
Will Best Jeans fare better? We’ll have to wait and see…
Recommended Purchasing Options for Best Jeans
If you are in the market for stretch jeans and like Best Jeans, we suggest avoiding the temptation of the $1 “trial” offer. Why? Because a) you’ll pay $7.99 more and b) you’ll still have the same 60-day money back guarantee. Because of the reported long shipping times for other Tristar products, we suggest looking for it at Target or Walmart (many reviewers said they bought their Slim Jeggings there). If you can try it on in the store first, that’s the best bet as it will save you from coming back if you don’t like the way they fit. It might also be a good idea to keep your expectations low, as many “As Seen On TV” products tend to overstate their claims and disappoint in real-world use.
