So Miss Burgundy’s Post (http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/straight-leg-jeans) got me thinking…
I need some new jeans. But I’m on the curvy side (street size 16/18) and it’s REALLY hard to find great fitting jeans!!!! I wish I could pull off the skinny jean, but it’s just not good on me. I prefer a straight leg jean – something pretty classic. I know if anyone can help, it’s you bees.
So, curvy girls, where do you get your jeans?? Which are your faves? What style are they?

I’m a big fan of Old Navy

Usually I get jeans (size 12/14) at Old Navy but last time I went in to try some on, they weren’t working for me.
I have a lot of trouble find jeans or pants that fit good. I’m only 5’2″ but I have long legs and a short torso. Throw some curves in there and it’s just a big old mess trying to find anything that fits good!

My friend loves her JLo brand jeans. Raves about them! Every time I think of “curvy jeans” i immediately think of hers
(PS, IMO, not many people can pull off the skinny jean, including myself unless boots are involved….)

I get Levi’s in a stretch. Stretch is key if you’re curvy. I think you can Levi’s at Macy’s but I’ve been hitting up an outlet. They also come in different lengths. I’m 5’3″ but have short legs so the Short jeans are PERFECT.

I love, love, LOVE banana republic’s jeans. They fit me so well! Im not super curvy but I have a little more junk in the trunk and thighs than “normal” jeans my size allow for. Plus, the jeans Ive purchased at banana have lasted years.. Im still wearing jeans I bought in college there. They’re great! I think gap has a curvy fit now too that you could check out.

I’ve always been a big fan of Citizens of Humanity jeans. I’m curvy BUT unlike most curvy girls I have a flat butt (wide “child-bearing” hips, pancake toosh). In most jeans, the pockets end up coming halfway down the back of my thighs. Citizens work perfectly for me!

The gap “curvy” fit doesn’t work for me, but oddly the gap “long and lean” does – my hips and thighs are disproportionately large for my waist size (it stays that way no matter what happens to the scale), and my gap long & leans are a little roomier in the hips/thighs.

Perhaps this is stating the obvious a bit, but the Gap’s “Curvy” fit are great! They are cut with a bit extra in the hip and thigh, and have a very flattering flare leg – more flared than a bootcut, but not too wide. Very nice. I’ve been wearing them pretty constantly since I got them this past summer. Plus, they come in at least 3 different inseams – possibly even 4…

I love Old Navy and wear their “sweatheart” jeans. It is what fits me.

@ twalila “(wide “child-bearing” hips, pancake toosh)” you crack me up! 🙂
I get my jeans at kohls or JCP, but I haven’t been shopping in a while because I get so frustrated trying to find clothes…seriously, one size in the same brand will fit a completely different way everytime you change the pair of jeans, t-shirt…whatever. So I gave up. My poor Hubs…I steal all of his shirts. They are big, but they’re comfortable. I rarely go out on the town and when we don’t go out usually we will cook dinner and such in our PJs, so I don’t have much use for most of my wardrobe anyway. 🙁 Sad day. I think the most extensive part of my wardrobe has got to be the scrubs I wear to work…which makes me even more sad because while I work full time, I only work 3 days a week.
I think this has just inspired me to go shopping. Thanks bees!! 🙂

@Miss Lily- I wish I was Stacey London and could knock on your door and give you $5k! Definitely go shopping and pamper yourself! Try on things you wouldnt normally and youll fall in love with a new style, a new you! Oh! Get yourself a little black dress and a colored pashmina (you can find both for cheap cheap) then whenever you have a date with hubby, put it on and rock it with some jewels!

I am a big fan of paige denim and 7’s. I know 7’s are a little 2003, but they are still a rare brand that flatters my hourglass figure! I feel like most jeans are designed for women with no butt, thighs and are about 5’7″ with all the fading everywhere..
My jeans must ahve a little stretch, be low cut (makes butt look smaller) and have NO fading on the thighs! it’s a very tall order nowadays!

I’m a huge fan of True Religion jeans. There’s an outlet nearby and this never in my life has happened to me before, but the first pair of jeans I tried on FIT and I actually loved them. Stretch is the way to go!
