I agree, Kadesma...While I'd love to have the $$ to be able to even think about affording a $100 of pants (or any item of clothing for that matter), I would still be happier to find ones that fit right off the rack.

Same here Piccolina,
I get so angry over the high prices on "Name Brand" pants and dresses,sweaters, and they are not worth the price. By the time you get finished cutting off this, taking in that, you have two outfits and a large headache and neither the outfits nor the headache are what you wanted to begin with!!!

I used to be REALLY skinny, so a trick I used to use, and still encourage shorter friends to use, is to by teenagers. large childrens designer clothes. They are MUCH cheaper, shorter leg lengths in trousers and actually go up to quite a "normal" female adult size. Maybe some of you more petite ladies might try that?

ack! I'll be 40 this year. The last thing I want to wear is teen/junior wear!
(Anyway, the pants are made for those with bellies as large as hips! Sorry, I'm shaped like a girl, not a potato!)
