Who said mom jeans can't look sexy? (Amazon)

The too-tight low-rise jeans we've been suffering in are finally gone — and mom jeans are back! But of course, the young and fashion-focused are taking the idea to extremes. If you're looking for something between Millennial skinny and Gen Z baggy that's both flattering and comfortable, we totally get it. To help you out, the following are the best denim discounts at Amazon that'll make you feel like a million bucks. Scroll on for deals starting at just $18.

These Glorias sit nice and high at the natural waist and will pair with just about anything. And psst...they're over 60% off!

From the woman who invented designer jeans for women, Gloria Vanderbilt has been an iconic name in the industry for decades. If you're looking for denim that's designed to fit real women of all shapes and sizes, the Amanda jeans definitely fit the bill (pun intended). They're a classic high-rise that sits at your natural waist.

This fan is in love: "Absolutely love, love, love these jeans! They wear well, look great and just get softer with each wash. Will buy again!"

A classic five-pocket style with a slimming effect! These are designed looser through the hips with a stretchy material that moves with you.

When your motto is "The Brand That Fits," you better deliver. Luckily, thousands of women agree that Lee's is certainly living up to the tagline. With more than 17,000 five-star reviews on Amazon, Lee Monroe Straight-Leg Jean is super popular, especially for middle-aged women looking for the right fit.

A wise reviewer 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 skintight. There have to be some clothes for the older woman, and these are it."

Beware: These are Not Your Daughter's Jeans...but they're hot enough for her to steal. They're practically shapewear, with a slimming panel in the front and a curve-loving crisscross design.

$59 at Amazon

If you haven't heard of NYDJ, it formerly stood for Not Your Daughter's Jeans, and that's exactly what we're looking for. (Even Oprah loves this brand!) These Barbara Bootcut Jeans are designed to look as cute and sexy as that young'un in her 20s might wear, but they're designed for us older folk. With just the right amount of elasticity blended into the cotton, they use their "lift tuck" technology to make you feel slim and supported. The bootcut gives that skinny-leg look ending in a sexy flare, extending the look of your legs so you appear taller and svelter. Perfect with boots, of course, but also a knockout with heels.

This shopper said: "This fit is perfect, made me smile knowing I went down a size. I'm 5'9" and a young 67 years old!"

The slimming panels, booty lifters and super-stretch denim do the work, so all you need to do is work it.

Democracy jeans are made to slim you down where you need it — and are the "perfect choice for mature women with curves and bellies". Democracy’s signature “Ab” Solution jean uses innovative construction that incorporates smooth, super-stretch denim; slimming panels to mold and hold; a hidden inner elastic waistband for a no-gap waist; mesh panels for tummy control; signature curved back yoke and strategically placed pockets that provide a “booty lift.” Now, that's a lot of innovation put into one pair of jeans! The jeans are available in short and long inseams as well as in petite and plus sizes.

This fan reported, "Someone on Facebook had suggested these jeans as good mom jeans. I'm 61 and have more of a belly than I prefer. They are super stretchy everywhere and are SOOOO comfortable."

With a flared leg and a stylish silhouette, these feel as cool as they look.

$33 at Amazon

This flared-leg jean is a wardrobe must, as they look adorable with flats in the summer and fab with a pair of boots in the colder months. This pull-on stretch-denim pair is designed to sit at your natural waist and is available in regular and petite lengths. Also available in a darker wash, they work with all styles of tops and blouses.

One fan with pic exclaimed: "I love them. I have a mom pouch and these help to smooth me out! I feel so confident in them!"
