Stop with the lycra in jeans!!!
 
OK..I have purchased a couple pairs of jeans recently. And, like they tell me to, they fit VERY snug when I first put them on-to the point where I am thinking I will not be able to button them. But, even with that, within an hour I am tugging them up because they feel too loose.

I think companies have gone wild with the lycra in jeans. I think they need to stop with using so much in jeans. It is pissing me off because I want my jeans to fit for the whole day not just a 1/2 hour time frame while they are not too tight and not too loose.

I am right > < there w/ you on this. Enough! When I want jeans, let me where jeans. When I want leggings, let me wear leggings. Stop trying to make jeans that fit and look like leggings. *Sometimes* 1% Lycra is OK to add a little ease...but I'd prefer a return to the times when most jeans were 100% cotton.

Yes!

I couldn't agree more. They fit, then they fall.

It makes blouses fit weird, too.

I thought it was just me.

I hate wearing jeans. They never stay fitting right.

YES,YES,YES!! It drives me crazy to have to pull up my jeans constantly!!:bounce:

spiderlashes5000 10-05-2009 09:03 AM

Mine stay fitting right but they are just too clingy looking, like they are tights or leggings. You can see every contour of the lower half of my body...and that's just not what I want when I wear jeans.

I usually don't have those problems with the 1%, but when they get to 5%+ then they stretch and fall off. :mad: Mine don't fit that tightly to start with though, so maybe they don't stretch as much? :?

But I do like a tiny bit of give, it's easier on the knees when I sit. lol

jeepcurlygurl 10-05-2009 09:43 AM

Stretch jeans are the best invention ever, but I agree that they are using too much or doing something differently. They didn't used to stretch out so much.
Yep, tug tug tug all day long. I wear jeans every single day and it gets annoying.

CurliLocks is right, you can't go too high. I don't like more than 1%, maybe 2% lycra.

I hate when the butt gets baggy. Ugh! My butt is big enough already. I don't need it to look saggy, too.

Count me in here. During cooler weather, I probably wear jeans 5 out of 7 days. By the end of the day, I need a belt to keep up the same pants I could barely button in the morning.

EXACTLY!!!

Oh I am so glad I am not alone in this frustration. I totally do not mind some stretch but they have gone beyond that by a lot!!

And in addition to the baggy butt I get crotch sag. So freaking unattractive. And I am sure I look like a freak yanking and tugging at my jeans everytime I move.

I love a little lycra in jeans. I never used to wear them before lycra because they were just plain uncomfortable. I agree about too much of a good thing though. The lycra factor should be low or they do stretch out too much.

Suburbanbushbabe 10-05-2009 02:47 PM

they are using too much lycra. My favorite pairs only really fit on washday. When I try them on in the store, they are snug. 1% lycra is enough.

PartyHair 10-05-2009 02:55 PM

Agreed about too much of a good thing. I have a couple pairs that are so tight in the morning I can barely get in the damn car, but by the time I get where I'm going, I'm afraid they're going to fall off.

Bad.

Oohh, I HATE the crotch sag! Very unattractive:sad5:

where are you buying these jeans with lycra in them? and what style (skinny, bootcut, flare, boyfriend, etc)are you buying?

i need some jeans with a bit of stretch and cant ever seem to find any...

jeepcurlygurl 10-05-2009 05:35 PM

I don't own any jeans without stretch and haven't in years. All 20 or so pair of my various styles of jeans have lycra. I didn't know they still made jeans without stretch. Learn something new every day!

LL~2009 10-05-2009 05:50 PM

ok, so it's agreed. lycra is not working so great. Even 1% bugs me since i'm pretty petite and any difference in the fit is really noticeable. Who makes 100% cotton jeans???

MichelleBFT 10-05-2009 05:52 PM

I hate it too. The Gap has lycra-less jeans and it's about all I'll wear anymore.
