Hello mylot ladies. I don't know about you but I am one of those unfortunate women who can't find jeans that fit very well. I am a curvy woman with a small waste and big hips. If I buy jean, I have to buy jeans that are too big in the waste in order for them to fit my hips, and then I have all that extra room in my waste that I have to take up with a belt. I absolutely hate it. Do any of you have this problem and if so, how do you find jeans that fit. Have you come across a store that sells jeans for us, or do you alter your jeans yourself? I would love to hear from you. Thanks.

And here I thought I'm a breed apart. Just kidding! It's just that I've exactly the same problem. I've got hips from here to there and finding the right fit in jeans is a gargantuan effort. Add the fact that I'm short and that makes it a challenge for me to go shopping for jeans. What I did I do? I wore shorts and skirts and if in the eventuality that I do get to find a pair of jeans that's just right, I buy it regardless of price.

Don't hate me but I don't have problems buying jeans. Why? I know my waist size and my inseam and I buy guy jeans. I have some hips but I also have a tummy.I started wearing guys jeans in highschool, a hundred years ago. Have you tried newport-news.com? It is a clothing store that has all types of sizes for women.The female jeans I have, I got in their catalog.I think if you have your measurements they may have a jean that will work. Good Luck.

Yeah, some jeans make me look to big, some disfigured, some just blah! But I try to find jeans that make my shape, sort of. There are jeans that are too thick, I don't like those, because they don't show my figure. So try to find jeans that are stretch and that will give you a figure. And don't try to get them too tight from the knee part because it just makes you look bigger at the thighs and hips. Or that's if you want to hide that. Lol, many women probably don't !

finding jeans that will fit me isn't my biggest problem it's finding jeans that I don't have to hem. I am 5'1 so all my jeans are too long.

I have problems all the time with trying to buy jeans. I almost hate shopping for jeans, every brand fits different, and sizes are not the same from brand to brand. If I buy to fit the waist, the legs and hips are too big, and if I buy for the hips and legs, the waistband is always too tight. I'm not fat, or even chunky, I only weigh 100#, so weight isn't the problem. I have what my mom used to call a 'boy waist', I'm only one little size off for the waist, but even that much makes a huge difference in the fit of jeans. What I do is go to Good Will, Salvation Army, or a yard sale where they're selling gently used jeans. I find that if they've already done their shrinking, and they fit when I try them on, then they will always fit. Hems are a different problem too. I'm 5'2" and almost every pair of jeans is too long, and if I get petite, they're almost a little too short. I almost always have to hem them. I've often wished that they'd do jeans for women like they do mens...by waist and inseam & with different fits (loose, tight, etc) I think we'd probably have better luck lol.
