Video: The shapewear retailer officially entered the denim market this past week with the launch of its first denim legging collection. The pants are slimming and curve-hugging, as TODAY style editor Bobbie Thomas explains.

We all know about Spanx and how they help every woman (and some men) attain a more defined shape. Now the company that made shapewear famous is getting into the jeans market. According to industry giant Cotton, the average American woman owns an average of 8 pairs of jeans (or for some of us, more). It's also everyone's goal to find that perfect pair of jeans that fits, well, perfectly. Take a look at our favorite slimming styles:
