There’s never been a weirder time to buy jeans. As if it weren’t already hard enough to find the right fit, Gen Z had to blow up denim style by bringing back the baggy ‘90s silhouette — replacing the skinny jeans that we just finally got used to seeing everywhere (but we weren't always into wearing ourselves).

Getting on board with baggy jeans is tough when you reach a certain age, especially if your goal is to look slender. The good news is that there are plenty of slimming jeans out there that are somewhere between the baggy and skinny styles. We did some denim digging on Amazon and found more than a few styles that Amazon shoppers praise for their slimming capabilities — some of them are even on sale!

With a cotton-polyester-spandex blend, these jeans have a bit of a stretch for maximum comfort. More than 53,000 Amazon shoppers give them a five-star rating.

"These are the only jeans I buy now. Just enough stretch to be a tailored fit that is graceful and modest," shared a happy shopper. "My waist is small, relative to hip size, and these fit well at the waist — no gap at the back. They are a high-rise, which I prefer to the low-rise type that can reveal all too much anatomy when bending down to pick something up."

These mid-rise jeans sit at the waist and have a relaxed straight leg. They also have a button closure, come in 17 colors and have had nearly 7,000 five-star Amazon reviewers sing their praises.

"Love these jeans!! I've worn them almost every day since I got them, they are so comfortable," wrote a raving reviewer. "The fabric is stretchy, but it doesn't look cheap, like other stretchy jeans I've bought. The fabric looks just like the regular Levi's denim. They look great from behind and from the front, but I do wish there was a tummy-slimming panel in the front so they looked better from the side. They are tight enough at the bottom of the legs that they look great with boots tucked in or with a small roll and tennis shoes. Overall, a great pair of jeans!!"

Cotton, polyester, rayon and spandex work together to make these bootcut jeans extra soft. They feature a mid-rise, regular fit and a flexible non-binding waistband for comfort. More than 8,000 five-star fans have made these pants their go-to jeans.

"I have found the ONLY jeans that fit in every way are expensive 'Lucky' jeans.... but not anymore!!!!!" wrote one very excited shopper. "These are great, and the price is so reasonable! Perfect flattering fit that isn't too short in the crotch or waist. Rise is comfortable and looks good. They truly are 'move with you' jeans — stretchy but not that rather 'gross-looking' cheap stretch, and these are slimming!"

More than 13,000 five-star reviewers love these jeans. They have a relaxed, loose fit through the hip and thigh with a high waist and strong stretch fabric for a slimming silhouette.

"Great jeans," wrote one happy shopper. "Perfect fit for me. They get rid of my muffin top — it definitely slims you down. They have the right amount of stretch where you need it."

These regular-fit, straight-leg jeans have a hidden shaping panel to help tame your tummy. Over 2,000 Amazon shoppers have given these pants a thumbs-up.

"The search is over," wrote one five-star fan. "Despite having moved up a size due to weight gain, these pants are instantly slimming and fit oh-so-just-right. Very comfortable, and yet I can feel the extra support on the inside of my thighs and butt. My only wish is that they came up a little higher in the waistline. Otherwise, they’re perfect!"

These straight-leg jeans are designed to elongate your legs, plus they use a special slimming panel to help lift and flatten the front. Over 3,000 five-star fans can't get enough of them.

"With age comes unwanted body changes, and jeans just don't fit like they used to," lamented one satisfied shopper. "I have a closet full of jeans that are 'supposed' to fit, but are never worn because they don't. Enter NYDJ. What an amazing fit and flattering look on my middle-aged frame! I ordered size 8, but probably could've gotten away with a 6 if I wanted them to be skintight. Paired with a casual button-up white shirt, a black blazer, and heeled shoes, the jeans made me look and feel young again. The intense black color adds a bonus slimming effect."

These embellished jeans are a No. 1 bestseller on Amazon with over 33,000 five-star ratings. They're a mid-rise bootcut with a little stretch to hug your curves.

"These will be your sexy jeans," promised one five-star fan. "I bought a pair of these a couple of months back and fell in love with them. They are my 'good butt/slimming' jeans and give me a little boost of confidence while on my journey to lose a few more pounds. The rise is perfect for those of us with a little pooch, and OMG, do, they make your butt look amazing. The stretch is awesome — the jeans actually move with your body. Usually, jeans make you feel like they are wearing you. But not these."
