'Tis the season. Temperatures are cooling down, signaling for us to replace summer's shorts and dresses with the most timeless piece in our closets: jeans.

If you've been living in sweatsuits, leggings and anything else with an elastic waistband for the past few years, those jeans of yore just might not cut it anymore. And stiff denim is the last thing we want to put on at the end of the day, which is where Shop TODAY's list comes in.

How we chose the best slimming jeans

To help you find the perfect pair for you and your body type, the Shop TODAY team scoured Amazon to find the best-reviewed slimming and shaping jeans that, according to verified Amazon reviewers and our own experience and expertise, don't disappoint when it comes to the comfort and movability department.

We kept several things in mind during our research. Not only should your denim be comfortable and breathable, but it should also complement your body type and shape. We also made sure to look through a variety of jean types, from those with a little bit of give to pairs that deliver with an elastic waistband to Gen Z-approved straight-leg styles.

Full disclosure: Yes, we did include jeggings among our list of stretchy jeans — but luckily, some of these bottoms are so stylish that no one will be able to tell.

Our list of the best 15 best body-shaping jeans is so comfy, you'll want to wear them every day.
