this exactly! ^^^ I still have a pair of juniors size 13 that I could fit just fine when I weighed 210 before I got pregnant with my second baby...(I think with my older son, when I was pregnant at 19, that my hips/pelvis never spread too far. perhaps because I was younger?)
anyhow since my second son was born, ive never been able to comfortably wear that pair of jeans since....even though I weigh much less now (180 instead of 210) AND have found other juniors pants that fit just fine....but that particular pair of jeans, I still cant fit and I KNOW it has to do with my pelvic area...its the strangest thing!
