Honestly, I didn’t used to mind buying jeans all that much. I mean, it usually took me trying on twenty plus pairs of the darned things before I found even one I liked, but I’d still find the one. These days, though, no matter how many styles I try on, boot cut, wide leg, skinny leg, mom jeans, yada yada, I can’t find a single pair I like.
It might be the extra ten pounds I’ve been carrying around for too long, or that there are just too many styles from which to choose. It might be that I’m short and the jeans seem to get longer and longer in length. It might be that the most popular style these days is the skinny jean and I’m not feeling, let alone looking, very skinny. It might be I’m sick of the low-slung style of waist. Then again, it might be that I’ve just gotten so used to wearing my sweat pants all day while I’m working that comfort has become the name of the game. Unfortunately, sweats just don’t work for that Friday night date. So I need to go shopping for jeans. The sooner, the better.
Any suggestions? Have you found a brand of jeans you swear by? What do you think of the new skinny jean style? The wide leg style? Should I get a pair with a certain percentage of spandex for comfort?
While I finding pics for this article, I ran across this pic on the left of a PZI brand of jeans. Supposed to be flattering for the curvy woman. That’s me. A narrow waist considering the size of my big behind. Anyone have any experience with these jeans?
And, just for kicks, how do you like this new style, the wedgie jean?
