Jeans are one of my least favorite things to shop for (well, first bathing suits, then jeans). Most women would agree. It’s not that I have a problem with wearing plus-size jeans—it’s that it’s impossible to find what I’m looking for when every store’s sizes, cuts, and styles seem to fit completely differently.
Plus, young women and older women just have different taste in jeans. There is definitely no “one size” for anyone. Young women dread being caught in what one would consider “mom jeans,” whereas older women are interested in full coverage.
And those of us in the middle? We just want to wear a stylish pair of jeans that aren’t ten years out-of-date and don’t advertise our brand of underwear to the world.
The key to good jean buying and wearing: a) shop for jeans when you’re feeling rested and good about yourself, b) try EVERYTHING on, c) don’t worry too much about the number on that inside tag, and d) stay away from anything too tight—jeans that dig into your skin, while they might make you feel slimmer, are really just uncomfortable and unflattering.
