i admit, me and my neighbors have been wanting to try the applebottom jeans and we're all a variety of sizes. one is short and had GBS and has lost over 120# so far and is in a 16 now i think (was a 28 i think). anothe neighbor is about my height and is a 14 (but doesnt look it), and i wear an 8 (at least at old navy - my mothership of clothes-land)....i swear by old navy. been wearing their clothes since 1999...and never tried any other brand of jeans....but looking into other options to see if any can fit better than my O.N.

Good Luck!

I used to teeter at 135 through high school and college, and I was mostly a size 10. Occasionally a size 8 depending on the store. After gaining 20+ pounds, I started pushing 12. I remember shopping at the Limited in 2000 with a friend who was the same height as me, and she got really excited because Limited was going to start carrying size 0. In my head I was thinking "geez, we're the same height, and she is a size 0 and I am a size 0 with a 1 on the front of it." Body types can be wacky!

It is so hard to tell. My MIL and I both weigh within 10lbs of each other however she is 5'9 and I am 5'2. She holds all her weight in her butt and boobs and I hold all my weight in the middle ( I am defintely what they refer to as an apple). But somehow we still wear the same size pants. Sizing is so confusing anymore especially nw that stretch is found in everything including denim.

yes i love my stretch old navy jeans...they seem to hold their shape better than the regular jeans, not sure how but i love it. i have more booty than some i guess so i cant/dont wear those ultra low rider jeans, they are made for those without much butt and i cant fit into those...so i like the mid rise. enough to cover but not the old high waters style.....

I'm a buttless wonder, but at 217 I was wearing a 13/14 in pants and an XL in shirts, 18lbs down and I'm still wearing a very baggy 13 and the XL shirts still fit well. My sister is about 155 and she's roughly a ten.

You can find Apple Bottom Jeans on Ebay frequently they are designed by the rapper Nelly.
I think they are pretty well cut perhaps slightly on the large side so you might want to try a size smaller than usual.
I remember myself at 160lbs I was a size 12 that was a long time ago though. I have heard clothes are cut larger than they were even 5 years ago so perhaps now at 160 i would be more like a 10.

Seriously. I can wear a size 12 from Gap now, but I have this old pair of 14's from Gap that I bought maybe 5 years ago that are still uncomfortably tight.

Yeah but those are JR sizes (they get the odd #s), totally different than misses or womens. Generally I add 3, so I'm a size 10 misses, a size 13 in JR fit me the same.

Do they have different materials. Pants that are labeled stretch or contain lycra etc tend to fit bigger where as 100% cotton does not stretch and will fit more tightly.

Yeah, I think you're right, the old ones are 100% cotton, and the new ones are a little stretchy.
