Default I Can't Wait To Fit Into Express Jeans!

So I went shopping today, and on a whim went into Express. Their jeans only go up to size 12 (and I'm a 14) but I decided to try a couple on for the **** of it because I love the style of their jeans. They were definitely small, but I could put them on and even zip them up! And despite the fact that they did look like I was poured into them the style and fit were fabulous for my body and the material was great! So now I really have a new goal....I can't wait to get into a size 12 so I can get a pair or 2 of those awesome looking jeans!!!

Good luck! I love their jeans too! That's a goal all in itself! What a good idea!

Express fits me perfect, and I'm a really small size there, so I love it! Hahaha
Really, the cuts of their jeans are so flattering on almost everyone I've ever seen with a pair.

ValentineNicole,
Any specific style you recommend for xpress jeans? Do they make short length? I am thinking of going to the mall on my lunch break now!! Thanks.

I like the Stella cut jeans, in boot cut. Or wide leg, sometimes.
And yup, they make short, medium, and tall - as well as 3 "shapes".

Stella is the low rise "regular" fit; there's also an ultra low rise "slim" fit, and a regular rise "curvy" fit.

omg, I know what you're talking about. I have several pairs of size 6 and 4 Express Jeans from a few years ago when I was at my smallest. I loved those jeans and they always looked awesome on me! I need to pull them out and use them as motivation...

How random - I had forgotten until I read this post that my goal jeans were this size 10 Express jeans that I used to love.
I just pulled them out from under my bed... and they fit!!
But I don't find them very flattering anymore- haha. In my mind they were the perfect jeans. I guess styles change...
I'll have to go back to Express when I hit goal

I just bought a pair yesterday - wearing ANYTHING from express was one of my major goals. And they were an 8!

I hate it, I am not a size 14 but I am too big for a size 12.
...Do they make 13s? (lol, jk)

I love Express jeans... are you guys implying that there is heavy vanity sizing though? That's kind of sad for me haha but I guess it doesn't matter since they're the only ones I wear... I was really happy I fit into 10s the other day (and bought them... marked down to $15 from $60 what a deal right?) even though I've been slacking off on exercise and all that...

Okay is it sad that I don't think I've ever shopped there? Even in High school I was like a 14/16. I'll have to check them out when I get near goal.

If you want vanity sizing, check out Lucky Brand jeans. I wear a size 8, lol! Every other brand, I'm in 10's and not too comfortably at that.
