Hi. I like to come here to vent! And to see if anybody else has the same problems or any solution. (This post is not for all you skinny 20 somethings!!!) Am I the only person in the world who cannot wear stretch jeans? (Yeah, I know there are a lot of women who SHOULDN'T.) I am thin, but what weight I have gained over the years is in my thighs. It doesn't help that I don't have hips. I finally bought a new pair of summer jeans - Lee - that fit in the dressing room. The first time I stood up at work (we get to wear jeans on Friday), there was a big wrinkle across the front of both legs that did not go away when I stood up. And when I sat down again, the area between my hip bones was all bunchy. So they stretch out and don't stretch back? I can't wear mid-rise jeans because I am high waisted (and remember, no hips). I tried on a pair yesterday, and they fit in most places, but they were so stretchy and below my stomach, I could slide them them off without unbuttoning them (not zipped). I cannot wear jeans that would show my navel. Geez. I've spent the last 25 years wearing straight or tapered leg, natural waist, Calvin Kleins. I've probably had 10 pairs. I have three left that fit well enough. Why doesn't anybody make normal regular DENIM jeans anymore? (Not $300 designer ones, please!) Do I need to go to Kmart and buy baggy elastic waist jeans? Now that I am in my 50's, am I supposed to dress like it? Other 50 something's don't. I used to be so thin, I would tuck sweaters in my jeans to keep them up. I would have given anything for the "skinny" jeans back then. Now I weight 20 lbs. more than I did back then and have an average body for my height. But jeans have changed in the opposite direction. I bought two pairs (different washes). I haven't taken the tags off the second ones. I am going to have to take them back. AARRGGHH.
