Why we rate them

M&S' Magic Jeans come in a range of styles: straight leg, skinny, high waisted, and slim flares. However, by far the most popular option is the straight leg jeans, as they're great for everyday wear.

But what exactly makes these jeans 'magic'?

Well, in a nutshell the jeans feature innovative and clever technology, which M&S says "flattens your tummy and lifts your bum for a flattering look".

M&S' Magic Shaping technology offers back-seaming detailing to lift your bum and an internal front pocket to flatten your tummy. The jeans also feature shaping darts that offer extra lift.

But perhaps our favourite feature is the gap-proof, contoured waistband. A gaping waist is a huge bugbear for many a jeans-wearer – especially if you have a pear shape with a smaller waist and curvier hips/thighs. So, this design is great if you're looking for something that flatters your figure perfectly, and hugs you in all of the right places.

Now, you may be thinking 'cor, they sound uncomfortable', but that's far from the truth. The jeans are made from a blend of soft, breathable cotton with added stretch for all day comfort.

They're also available in sizes 6 to 24 and you can also choose between petite, regular, and long lengths, to ensure you get the perfect fit for you.

The straight leg style comes in five classic hues: light and dark indigo, black, grey and white. We particularly love the idea of the white or light blue ones to incorporate into our spring 2024 wardrobe.

What the reviews say

With over 1,300 five-star reviews, the jeans are rated very highly by M&S customers. One shopper even said "these jeans really are magic".

  • "A repurchase from 2 years ago in a smaller size as I’ve lost weight. Loved them before, still loving them now. Perfect fit, slight stretch and holds and lifts in ALL the right places."

  • Having that little bit more flexibility, both in the waistline and in the body of the trouser is lovely. Makes for a more comfortable wear!"

  • "This is the 4th pair of these jeans that I have purchased. They are a great fit and hold the tummy area in. They are also very comfortable with great stretch."

  • "I love these magic jeans. Definitely hold, mould and shape but very comfortable at the same time. My legs are too ‘thick’ for skinny jeans and these do the job."

  • "These jeans are very flattering for older ladies - high waist and comfortable whilst hugging the hips and bottom. True to size and not only do they come in five different colours, but five different lengths. Unfortunately the pictures don’t do them justice. Overall happy with my purchase, I will most likely be buying another pair."
