I only own 3 pairs of jeans, and the only one I like is Kut brand, bootleg low rise. The others are a Kut wide leg and a Guess bootleg.

I had two:

1. Gap forever skinny or whatever. I had the waist tailored. Now have a very visible crotch hole.

2. Gap jeggings in black. Fit like a dream from the beginning. Now have a very visible crotch hole.

RIP Gap jeans 2009-2013. We had a time didn't we?

Funny!

My three favorite pairs right now are GAP, also!
When I was young and skinny, I never found GAP jeans to be all that flattering. But now that I'm...maturing, I am starting to like them. And I guess, their styles are evolving, too.


1. GAP Original Fit (100% cotton, came w/ fraying and a few holes)

2. GAP Always Skinny (in faded black denim. I have them in a dark wash blue and I don't like those as well as the faded black.)

3. GAP Boyfriend (w/ zippers on back pockets. Not Sexy Boyfriend)

I agree that the GAP jeggings are super comfy! I have a few pairs of those, too.

I love the length and cut of the GAP Long and Leans but the fabric has too much Spandex IMO for the cut.

GAP is really coming up!

My second fave brand is probably Joe's Jeans or Paige Denim.

1. Anything silver low rise, any style (Tuesday, Frances, pioneer, etc). Only thing that fits my short torso & non-hips like a dream

2. Sometimes American eagle artists work

3. My MEKs by Miss Me, but too expensive for me to own multiple pairs.

I think it's because they're doing more slender fits instead of classic because they fit me well for the most part.

More of their jeans have elastic in the waist and in general so they cling more and don't get baggy after wearing them for like an hour.

Personally I wish there were more jeans choices without Spandex nowadays. It is being overused IMO. Sometimes I don't want jeans to be form-fitting, painted-on and accentuating every curve I have.
curlyarca and Amneris like this.

Wellll I ain't got much to cling to so I love the spandex. My waist is a 22-23 so I'm more likely to find a flattering fit with spandex

Oddly enough, the best jeans I've found for my body type (big hips, flat butt) are from PacSun, which is not my kind of store at all. I found the first pair at TJMaxx and looked up the brand, and they only sell it at PacSun.

So,

1) Bullhead Black Skinny jeans in dark wash

2) Bullhead Black Boot cut dark wash

3) Bullhead Black skinny in a medium wash

My faves are my Wranglers....

1. Their booty-up cut. I won't lie. It makes my butt look great, and I love that.

2. Their regular low rise.

Don't have a 3.

I don't need a belt with the Wrangler's, which is why I love them. I hate belts. Most of them also have real pockets that are at least big enough to hold my cell phone.

1. Vigoss - boot cut, medium wash, low rise, flap pocket. (Almost all of my 20+ pairs of jeans are Vigoss but I haven't been able to find any skinny jeans that I like in this brand.)
2. Forever 17 - skinny, dark wash, low rise, flap pocket. (I have never seen this brand anywhere and can't find any but if I did I would buy them all. These fit me perfectly.)
3. ANA - skinny, med/dark wash, low rise. (Never heard of this brand either but I would buy more.)

I prefer 2% spandex, no more.

I can't fit into them anymore, but I had a pair of AE skinny jeans and AE Artist jeans that I adored. They changed the style of the Artist, so I can't wear them anymore. Sad. They were both my favorite pairs of jeans by far.

To replace them, I ended up buying two cheap pairs of jeans - boot cut and "everyday" skinny - from Charlotte Russe that were surprisingly kind of awesome. However, they both got giant holes in the crotch after about 6 months. Sad day. They made my butt look awesome.

Now, I hate every pair of jeans that I own. And I'm too cheap/poor to buy more, so I just live with them!

I have no idea. I just got them on Ebay last week and haven't had a chance to look for more.

That's very brave of you to buy a brand of jeans you've never heard of or tried on, on ebay!
