Megan Jackson Carreker and Aimee Miller, sorority sisters when at Baylor University, designed Hip Chixs Jeans to create a slimming effect and do away with “muffin tops” and “whale tails.” The lightweight, “buttery soft” jeans are cut to accentuate a woman’s natural curves with an angled pocket on the rear end and a curved yoke in the back. Megan and Aimee did not get a deal, but later they admitted they went in not wanting a deal, only the invaluable publicity the Shark Tank brings. Once they were in the Tank, however, they changed their minds and “wanted the money.” To no avail. Their jeans sold out after the show, but that didn’t get the business going.
They next went to Kickstarter hoping to raise $150,000, but received less than $20,000. You might be able to find a few pairs of the jeans on Amazon, but Hip Chixs is closed down. Megan, who had not quit her day job, continues to work for Fossil as a photography stylist, and Aimee is a trainer at Sculpt House, a gym in Dallas.
Hip Chixs Jeans are no longer available.
