Jeans. Just Askin!

I'm just gonna go off on a random tangent here.....blue jeans.....I work in an office but it's the office of a family owned roofing, heating, cooling, siding etc. wholesaler...in the ummmm not so great part of town. You have no idea some of the clientele that is in here on a regular basis. Needless to say I get to wear jeans, as a matter of a fact I think the boss prefers it, if us to girls dressed up Lord knows what the customers would do. So that is 6 days a week 7am to 5pm (only til noon on Saturdays) of jeans. They tend to wear out quick.

Now the problem is I have the worst time in the world finding jeans that fit properly. I'm short and overweight. I want a straight leg pair of jeans with a waist band that goes around my waist. I DO NOT want a bootcut, wide leg, flared, or whatever pair of jeans that has a inch long zipper that stops at my pubic line. I normally wear a 14 or 16 regular. I know plenty of other people wear that size. You can't tell me they are thrilled to feel like their but cheeks are hanging out or a muffin is hanging over the button!!!

I thought I found a pair. I was in heaven. I got a pair of Fosters SKinny jeans. Straight leg, pretty much normal length zipper, dark color! Fit great! 2 hours after putting them on they fall to my ankles. I'M NOT KIDDING! I gimped through the damn grocery store with one hand holding them up the entire time.

Someone tell me where I can find some jeans?

We should ask my daughter over at This Little Family. She's a shopper now. I sure don't have any ideas for you. I'm in the same boat.

Mami to the rescue! Lane Bryant! $40 bucks, they have 3 styles for 3 body types (apple, pear and 'regular' you know you carry your weight everywhere)and several lengths, washes and legs, they have a straight cut in SHORT, for me even some petites are too long. Dark wash, at my waist that I love!

Costco! I got a pair of Gloria Vanderbilt jeans, in PETITE, even, that I absolutely love!! They have a stomach control panel in them, and are comfy and cute. I wear them all the time. =) Hope this helps!!

Hmm, I don't know if there are any Costco's around here, at least none within a half hour or so. I will have to check online.

Meh, jeans & bras...it's almost impossible to find the "perfect" ones! Try LandsEnd, though, I know a few people who swear by them.
