I struggle with jeans. There, I said it!
Or rather, my ample rear struggles with jeans.
These size 20 jeans from Simply Be look good in many respects, but when it get to the back, it just gapes. Gapes so much that no amount of belts, or pulling up will make them work!
I love the colour of these (pardon the mustard top, I know that that does not go with the green!) , but I know that by sizing up to a 22, the gape will still be there, but the fit will also be off elsewhere.
I had bought this colour specifically to go with this top:
But after a recent bra fitting, the top sat halfway down my bra - meaning no WAY was it suitable without constant pulling / adjustment. So it is now sitting on eBay in a size 20.
Still I have my black skinny jeans to rely on, and I think the reason that they work, is because of the completely elasticated waist - but it is not as if I'm showing that detail off to the world, so I think it works! Hey, it's comfortable AND they fit. What more can a girl ask for!
Are jeans an hourglass problem, or a general plus size problem?
Much love my lovelies,
