Rock these jeans, mama! Lee's 'slim and sleek' pair for women 50+ is down to $29

Fun fact: The brand behind Lee jeans was established way back in 1889, as the H.D. Lee Mercantile Company, in Kansas. And somehow it's still making waves! One pair in particular that has Amazon shoppers — nearly 17,000 of them, to be exact — in a tizzy? Lee's Instantly Slims Straight Leg Jean, on sale right now starting at a mere $29 — that's more than 30% off. The denim style is especially popular for women 50-plus looking for the right fit.

Shoppers say the universally flattering pair holds its shape even after washing and drying.

Paying a mere $29 for comfortable, flattering jeans just feels wrong. They cost less than a pair of movie tickets! Just note that prices vary a bit by color, but the classic black and blues are all under $30.

Since we're not 18 years old anymore, we love that these Lees have full pockets, a slimming tummy panel and a flattering mid-high rise. The easy-zip jeans are 98% cotton and 2% spandex for just the right amount of give — you know, the kind you need so you can order that slice of devil's food cake for dessert.

It's uncomfortable to wear something that isn't truly suited for your body, but these jeans are made with real women in mind. Grab a few: Available in multiple shades, from classic denim to light gray and black, these may be your new go-to pants.

Everyone's talking about how incredible the slim, straight-leg jeans fit and feel.

"I am very impressed by these Lee jeans," one happy shopper said. "They are very soft and comfortable and the fit is perfect. ... Being middle-aged, I didn't want low riders; I wanted something that would enhance an older woman's figure. These jeans actually make me look slim and sleek. ... The straight legs are not tight at all, which is nice if you wear boots or Uggs — it does not outline their shape and look silly and also looks good tucked in! The jeans also look nice with heels! Lees are reliable when it comes to sizing."

A wise customer wrote, "I don’t feel as if my pants need to be hiked up constantly. Also, I am way past the age of wearing everything skin-tight. There has to be some clothes for the older woman and these are it."

"I like that the waist doesn’t form a bucket when I squat," said another five-star fan. "The pant legs are small enough that they don’t bunch up inside my tall boots but aren’t so skinny that they cut off my circulation ..."

"Yay! No more muffin top!!!" said a grateful shopper. "I love the fit of these jeans. I have three pairs now and wear them all the time. No more tugging my pants up, so I don’t flash trouser cleavage! I am a tall gal of 6 feet and low-waisted jeans never worked for me. My torso is too long to safely wear low-waisted pants without showing too much skin that bubbles over the waistband. These jeans fit perfectly, above the hips so they don’t slide down, they are long enough in the inseam, which is a rare find for me. The fabric has a little stretch for comfort but is not clingy ... Thank goodness there is a higher waist option for us tall girls."

Though one shopper titled their review "Perfect fit," they said: I’m 5’7"; the only complaint is I would like them to be a couple of inches longer. But they still look good and don’t look like they are way too short."

And if you're eying a dark wash, be warned. According to this final shopper, "The only downside is that I have several pets and you can see the hair on the black pair."

This dark shade, called Ellis, is particularly slimming.
