What Kind of Jeans Do You Wear?




What kind of jeans do you wear? What rise do you like? Will you wear the now in style jeans of our youth? Skinny leg with zippers up the ankles? Just things to ponder. Do you like to wear a certain wash or a certain color? Do you have a favorite brand? How much are you willing to pay on a great pair of jeans.. Just a few questions to ponder..

I love Eddie Bauer jeans!!! Their shorts and capris! THEY are the BEST!

Love, love, love Silvers. They fit great. I do usually buy some with a bit of a higher rise though, higher than butt-crack showing- not so high that it's up to my belly button.

I would have to say mine are Von Dutch. Great for tall gals like myself. Thanks for stopping by girls!

Hi! I just "stumbled upon" your blog because I Googled the words "cute 'mom jeans'". I haven't been on it very long, but long enough to have seen some really cute Payless shoes! :o)

Having been skinny all of my life, over the last 6 years of going through perimenopause, I have little by little gained 25 pounds! And, though it's nice to now have much more of a chest, most of those pounds accumulated at my waistline. Dang!

I never ever thought I'd be "here", but.... alas, here I am. I have now joined the massive legions of the overweight population in this country. ;o(


I have always LOVED funky clothes, so of course I WOULD like to "step away from the mom jeans"! And, I HAVE! But let's face it, low rise jeans just do NOT work well with flesh hanging out over the tops of them. Gross mental image, I know. But these days I see that "muffin top" flesh on LOTS of women and girls MUCH, much younger than me! (Don't some of those girls realize how BAD it looks when they just let it all "hang out" in the summer months???)

For all of us with extra pounds in the middle of our bods, low rise jeans are so frequently needing to be discreetly grabbed and "hiked up", even WHILE wearing a belt that, by the end of the day, this action has become QUITE ANNOYING. (In contrast, how very nice it is to just put on a pair of jeans and then forget about them!!!) And, low rise pants often only accentuate bulges, rather than helping to conceal them.

Do I WANT to have to wear something called "mom jeans"? NO, not really. (I AM a mom, but... still, no.) The other day I finally dug out a pair of my most comfortable, old, favorite jeans and... wow. (Remember when most ALL jeans were NOT "super low rise"? That was NOT that many years back, Girls!)

I have to tell you, those old waist-high jeans are sooOOOooo much more comfortable AND figure flattering!

Why oh why doesn't SOMEONE design some CUTE skinny jeans (or at least NOT baggy) "mom jeans" for those of us whose waistlines of our jeans are always covered up by our shirts anyway??? (WHO even SEES the tops of most of our jeans?) Believe me, there IS a market for some cute mom jeans! And believe me again, I have looked and asked at so many stores and they don't seem to exist.

Guess I may have to get out my dust-covered sewing machine and start customizing some of my belly button-high jeans, taking in the legs to make them hopefully look sort of like skinny jeans. If I'm successful, I won't be stepping AWAY from them, I'll be happily stepping INTO them! Do I want to have to choose comfort over beauty? No, not yet. I want it all! Comfort AND beauty!

Thanks for listening. :o)
