wb maddie...mutton dressed as lamb warning

I think it is a plot.....fashion design...the clothes aren't intended to fit real people, just make us feel bad about ourselves.
I agree with lara mullen, when you find a brand and style that fits well, buy classic designs and buy two if you can afford it.

As a community service, I hadn't worn jeans in a long time but look out...I am so fecking happy about this...I have lost over 20 life-threatening kilos in the past 18 months., 5 to go and i'l weigh what i did when I got married...poor hub eh? he never said a word)He came in recently and found me trying on...wait for it!!! RED hipster cord flairs (mid-life crisis thang) that is where one of my quotes came from...what a diplomat..."I'm a 60's boy remember I like tight!" Phew!!!! (I won't wear them in public, unless I'm drunk...oh no, not even then...PLEASEEEEEEEEEE)

So I've reached a now or never point...who cares about fit.
Didn't someone once say big girls are best.?

I fully sympathise with you....there may be less of me now ,but it still has bits that stick out in the wrong places. I think most off the rack clothes need to be altered to fit well.
Good luck....I'm going to see the Vin Deisel movie asap...think I'll were the red flairs for that...brrrrrrrrrrrrmmmmmmmmmmmmm

i hardly ever buy/wear pants. i'm more of a shorts/skirt gal myself.

but i did have to buy some khakis for a job i had earlier this year. i was so at everything and all the khakis looking like crap, i just bought guy's khakis. they fit me better.

I can never find jeans that fit well..they always have this annoying gap at the small of my back, so my shirts slide in all kinds of uncomfortable ways.

Also, I have short legs so they are always baggy around the knees and ankles.

I have one pair of Tommy Hilfigers that fit as snug as I would like the rest...but they are a strange, stiff, uncomfortable pair of jeans.

I haven't bought anything but jeans in awhile, but my two pairs of dress pants fit nicely.

Normal

Is it just me, or does everyone have that one pair they would not be able to live without, that it fits so well and great if anything happened to them you'd have to go on a killing rampage?

Um, ok, I've got a pair like that. Sometimes I feel skanky cause they're like the only pair out of like four that I wear with any regularity, even though I wash them weekly. lol

Sometimes I'm sure people look at me and think I only own one pair of pants.

lol Jody, I'm like you, I was lucky enough to find the perfect sized jeans and at any one time always had about 3 pairs. No one else I'm sure knew that each day I was wearing a clean pair, but hey...I figure if people are paying attention, they are really paying too much and it is their prob!

Maddie, there are the right jeans for every shape. Unlike any other article of clothing, I believe completely in jeans. There is a pair for everyone. Buying a pair is different though, I think they rate slightly worse than swimsuits for pain and mental anguish. It sounds like you need man jeans. Not cos you say you have a man's arse or anything, but someone with your shape needs to forget those shaped jeans. Go for a straight cut and minimal fuss around the waist. Find a nice straight leg size you are happy with then try different waist heights until you find what you are comfortable with. Once you do find the perfect fit, keep your tags and you can always go back and buy straight off the rack, no more fuss ever again, unless you change weight.

You can do it!

Even though I never have any difficulty finding pants, there is this ONE PAIR of jeans that I would EAT for DINNER if I could.

I JUST LOVE THEM and want to wear them all the time.

Also my green cords which I think I wore for three days.....but not in a row, I swear.

Same here - it's sooooo annoying. Half the time they're too tight at the front but have a huge gap at the back.

I have these lovely cord trousers that fit me perfectly though. When I got them I had to rush back and buy pairs in the other three colours as well because they were the first trousers that fit me for ages. Only trouble is they wear out so quickly, and they don't make them anymore, so I have to go find something else now

I HATE shopping for trousers - maybe we should all give up and wear skirts for ever more

Yeah, I've got those--I wear them almost everyday. But unfortunately I poured bleach over them before heading off to see U2 in Chicago (I was overly excited and grabbed the wrong bottle)....so they look like shit. The bleach spots fade even more everytime I wear them...and I can't find another nice-fiting pair!

AHHHHHHh I have both hands up completely upright- this is so me..... In the past 3 years I have put on weight in my hips and things or I have grown into my 'womanly' figure, but anyway since this time I have found it almost impossible to find any kinds of pants or jeans to fit me well, where as before this I could try on whatever or borrow friends clothes and they would always fit, however now it is such a dilema..... Because I have a very hourglass figure I find that I am a smaller size on my waist as compared to my hips and thighs and becaue I am taller than the average woman this dosnt help either, so if I want something to fit me on the waist it is going to be skin tight on my thighs and vice versa, so anyway I have resorted to the idea that one say I need liposuction on my thighs or I will just have to get used to wearing skirts for the rest of my life
