I have the same problem. Buy one size and its slightly too small, buy the next size up and they fall down when I walk.

I just wear really low rise jeans and don’t have an issue! I sometimes get indents in my hips if the jeans are slightly too tight though.

@lilek22:  I wear a size 4 in jeans and have the same problem.  Maybe it’s because we’re not hourglass or pear-shaped?  At least I’m not, I’m more the inverted triangle shape with smaller hips and not as much of a waist.  I hate that feeling – like my jeans are going to slide down – they’re either a little too tight or a little too loose.  When I wear jeggings with long tops and boots it doesn’t happen it as much.  Funny how you can be small and still have a stupid muffin top, lol.  I truly envy women with curvy hips and waistlines.

@lilek22:  I am quite opposite (pear-shaped). I get gaps at the waist and belts don’t fix it. The only good jeans I like to wear are jeans with some stretch in them, and I but 1 size down, they stretch the little extra to fit my bum and fit my waist well. Sometimes I need to rewash them to shrink them back to their original size.  Gap jeans work the best for me.

I can’t do low-rise jeans anymore after baby!  I went and got ‘misses’ Levi’s for the first time in my life so I don’t have squished skin or muffin top.  Admittedly, it’s nice to know that when I bend over my crack isn’t going to come peeking out!

@DaneLady:  you and me both sister




I can’t do low rise jeans. I buy big lady pants now. 🙁 everything is nice and secure and it hits my waist in just the right spot.

I’ve gained weight and all my jeans are size 5 when, realistically, I should be in a 7. Last night FH poked my muffin top implying I was not as toned as I used to be so I unbuttoned my pants, lifted my shirt, and asked him if I looked puffy then. The answer was a resounding no so I will continue squeezing into my jeans until the stress of moving house and the wedding help me shed some pounds. 🙂 I really think it’s a sizing thing but I can’t be certain.

@lilek22:  I don’t have that problem because I have to go up in size because I have big thighs!  I don’t know why with all these forms of technology they can’t make jeans that fit real people!

I hate shopping for jeans.


My butt is a size 10, while my waist is a size 6. Therefore, I usually buy size 8 and hope I can fit my bottom into them. Low rise jeans are a lifesaver; I get all blue jeans from AE because their size 8 (short, because my legs are stumpy) fits perfectly!

@DaneLady:  I couldn’t have said it better myself!!

I’m 32, I’ve had 4 kids and while I’m NOT super skinny I’m pretty slender and even still if I wear low-rise jeans every time I bend over or squat i’m mooning everybody behind me!! LOL! I bit the bullet and started buying higher jeans and it took some getting used to but it’s nice not showing my crack every time I bend over!! I’m 5’9″, I don’t know if that has anything to do with it or just my bootie haha

@lilek22:  I’m pear-shaped, so I don’t have to worry about jeans sliding off me if they’re too big. I do need to worry about jeans fitting my thighs and hips though, as well as making sure there isn’t some ridiculously big gap at the waist. I should probably start trying to find lower-rise jeans, but I always worry that my shirt will rise up and my butt will be exposed. Undecided

My belly can get pretty bloated at times too, so that can be a concern. I’ve never had a muffintop or had the belly roll like that before, but it can still get a bit uncomfortable. Jeans just suck. I should start dressing fancy more often.
