Find Your NYDJ Perfect Jean Fit

NYDJ at House of Carillon



Founded in Los Angeles in 2003, NYDJ introduced a revolutionary jean that was both comfortable and figure flattering. Every pair of NYDJ jeans feature a unique slimming panel with patented criss-cross design and Lift Tuck Technology.

Not only extremely comfortable the NYDJ jean is designed to make women feel and look a size smaller. And they do work as many of the House of Carillon customers can testify. For some of our ladies these are the?only perfect jean fit that truly fits them and is not only stylish but oh so comfortable.

The secret is in their exclusive Lift Tuck Technology that is featured in every pair of NYDJ jeans. A patented criss-cross panel helps flatten the front. A special weaving technique does not let the fabric stretch vertically, giving the jeans a lifting and smoothing effect in the back.NYDJ slimming jeans at House of Carillon

The rise hits at the natural waist to provide not only a slimmer silhouette, but also comfort without gapping at the waistband.

The slimming technology works so well NYDJ?would encourage you to order one size smaller than you actually wear. In our 10 years experience of selling these jeans at House of Carillon we have found ladies up to a UK size 16 will need to drop a size. Ladies sized UK 18+ generally buy the size they are. Being an American brand the size in the back of the jean is the american size.?They are sold on?our online site and in store as the equivalent?UK size. So for example if you already own a pair of NYDJ’s and the size inside the back of the jean says 8 this is a UK12. If unsure of what size to order ask us! We are more than happy to help you choose the correct size.

Do try a smaller size in these jeans as a guide the waistband should be snug. If you can fit two fingers down the back that is good – if you can fit a whole hand that is not good try a size smaller!

However, a word of caution when buying jeans with super stretch buy them firm but not overly tight. If you have seam strain down your legs they are too tight and this will damage the finish and limit the life of the jean.

House of Carillon tips to find?the perfect jean style

Darker colours will flatter larger shapes and lengthen legs.

Pear shaped & curvy figures – bootcut will distract from a not so flat tummy and elongate the body. If buying a skinny go for high waisted styles as they will slim down the hips & elongate the legs. The classic straight is good on every figure shape.

Apple shape – look for plenty of stretch in a straight leg .

Boyish shapes – can wear most styles.

Petite girls look good in high rise that accentuates the waist & elongates the legs.

Long legs look best in mid to low rise to keep the waist at the right height.

Jegging is the slimmest NYDJ jean with a foot width of 6″, modern slim fit from hips to ankles.

Skinny?is slimmer fit from hips to ankles than the straight but not as slim as the jegging. Foot width of 7″.

Straight?is the classic cut with straight legs running from the knee to the ankle. Foot Width 8″.

Bootcut?the jean subtlely flares out from the knee. Foot width 9″ to 10″.
