So I'm not at the point where I'm down a million sizes, but I'm at the point I was before I took my little hiatus after my success this summer, at which time my pants began looking ridiculous on me.
Here are my frustrations:
a) I have a laughably short inseam. In the rare cases I can find plus size petites, they're usually still a bit too long. Although I don't sew or hem, I do have the ability to bring these to someone to alter for me.
b) I'm not leg-heavy, if there is such a term. My butt, relative to the rest of me, is not huge. So pants, especially jeans, tend to sag in the butt and are way too large in the thighs. I'm finally coming to the realization that this just helps me look bigger than I really am.
I was in the mirrored elevator at work yesterday (alone...lol) and I sort of grabbed the excess fabric of my jeans and pulled it in closer to my legs and hips. I swear, I instantly lost 15 lbs.
With that all said....
Can anyone recommend a brand of jeans that tends to cut for my body shape? I don't want to spend a ton of money because they'll definitely be transition clothes, but I'm sick of a walking around looking like I'm wearing clown pants. (I also don't want to pay a tailor more than I paid for the jeans to take them in!)
Don't know if I'm asking for the impossible, but figured I can always turn to you ladies for sage advice.
