Default Jeans question

I notice Chico's for example, carries jeans they call "so slimming". What I want to know is how the bleep can low rise jeans be "slimming"? for anyone except those women who are already slim?

Some materials "hold" better than others. I love low-rise jeans, I had have a problem with jeans because I am "bootylious" and my waist is smaller so they gap in the back at the waist. With low riders I don't have to worry about that.

I'm not familiar w/ Chico's jeans (love their colorful ornate jackets, tho)... but if someone has a paunchy belly, low rise is better. It's better that the paunch be held above the waistband of the pants than it be smashed down under the pants fabric. That creates front butt. If the paunch is just kind of suspended above the waist of he pants, it can kind of disappear under the right kind of top. This assuming the paunch isn't enormous...like a peniculus or something.

If you have love handhes (side flab) but a flat stomach, then higher rise is better.

Have you tried on a pair? Maybe you'll be pleasantly suprised?
