Jbrand - they fit my body super well, have a ton of mid/high rises, and come in a zillion colours and styles

I'm petite (5'2) with a muscular round buttocks and slim legs so finding skinny jeans that fit me will is hard.

I am consistanly a 25/26 in almost any style. One of the few brands I could order online and not worry about.

Adriano Goldschmied. They just fit great. I've never tried Jbrand but I've heard a lot of good things about them. My sister wears Jbrand only.

Guano: Nej, my 3 year-old just loves that little boy in your sig. Even after I moved on to another thread, she kept asking to see the little boy who feel off the slide.

I like AG jeans too. They're not skin tight and they're not so long that you get four inches of bunching at the ankles. I also like Kut from the Kloth--stretchy but they never lose their shape.

hahaha it's so funny.

I got it from this equally hilarious list

27 Reasons Why Kids Are Actually The Worst

AG jeans are super comfy, but don't fit me quite the same

ETA: ok I forget where I got it from cause it's not on the above link. But the link is also hilarious

I'm really liking American Eagle skinny and skinny flare right now. They have stretch but also look and feel structured like jeans. They aren't low rise but sit comfortably. I don't generally spend a lot on jeans and they are reasonably priced and run online promos and sales a lot so it works for me.

If it makes a difference I'm plus size but not bottom heavy so I generally have a hard time finding jeans that fit well. The legs are too big if they fit my waist/upper hips or too small if they fit my legs.

^^^ This sounds like me. I am a size 12 because of my waist. If pants fit in the waist, they are HUGE on me everywhere else. Yep, I am an apple! Technically, I am not overweight, but have "waistline obesity" due to my waist/hip ratio

I'm the same... If they fit my waist, I have diaper butt. If they fit my butt, I have muffin top.

I'm really liking Joe's Jeans these days. Mid-high rise helps suck and tuck the tummy, creates a little curve on the hips, and the pockets are placed just-so that my flat bum looks... not flat! Plus, their skinny jeans are great to tuck into boots, wear with flats, or wear with heels.

I love Joe's jeans. I don't have any of their skinny, just a pair of straight leg & a pair of cord jeggings. But they have the best pocket size/placement to lift butts. I also have a different build from you... I love them!!

Old Navy Flirt Super Skinny jeans LOVE! I am 5'1", pear shaped with heavier thighs, junk in the trunk, sporty-sized calves and a slim waist...these jeans fit perfectly, are super comfy, a bit stretchy, and they come in short length what could be better? They are lower cut in front and higher cut in the back, I love this because then my little whale tail never shows! Definitely recommend the ON Flirt style for gals built like me Bonus...they aren't too expensive

I love joes jeans and 7 for all mankind. Both hug your curves and have such great quality fabric that lasts forever. I get the majority of my jeans at the Nordstrom rack they have all the best brands at very good prices sometimes half off or more

I just said "no" to skinny jeans this weekend.

I think I made the right choice.

I went to an outlet store and tried on 17+ pairs of skinny jeans yesterday. I gave up and bought flare. They looked the best: made me look curvy without being fat. All the skinny jeans made me look fat except one and they had big neon yellow fleu de lais on the rear pockets............eww. It's like the thighs were too small on on of them and I do NOT have big thighs. Finally the sales rep told me they are teenager styles.......moving on; thus the flares!

Today I caved and went to the mall on my lunch break. I went to JCPenny and bought Levi's mid-rise skinny. I got a size that wasn't too tight or too loose and they fit me really well. I don't look like a 40-ish woman trying to look like a teenager or trying too hard either. They look really cute tucked in my biker boots


ETA: I hate paying full price for anything so I am in sticker shock but trying to convince myself that great fitting jeans are worth $40.00.

Will it convince you if I tell you that I buy my Levi's from the Levi's store and they're $69 minimum? Granted they almost always have 30% off sales, but yeah, $40 is a good price for Levi's.
