Finding your pair of jeans—you know, the ones that make you feel confident, fit well, and are actually comfortable—seems like a never-ending battle. I don’t even want to think about the number of times that I’ve found myself in a dressing room, pulling rigid denim over sweaty thighs for what feels like hours on end, only to end up with nothing.

In my personal journey to find my go-to pair of jeans, I’ve bought, worn, and fallen in love with (or absolutely hated) countless denim options. I might find a pair that I like, only to discover less than a year later that they wear out or are actually not very comfortable at all.

But throughout my years of wearing jeans, I have found a few pairs that have truly stood the test of time. So we’ve put together this list of the absolute best pairs of jeans for moms, including personal and editor favorites as well as some of our most popular reader favorites. From our go-to brands like Madewell, Gap, Abercrombie, and more, these are the jeans that will make you actually excited to wear denim.

Check out the best pairs of jeans for moms below, in every style you may be looking for:
