It is a pain to fit into jeans when you have to get the butt big enough and have a small waist too. I know, not the same problem, but also a problem. I found jeans at Llbean that fit me, and so anyone with the same problem can check there. I just think that women's jeans are hard to fit anyway. So many people I know have trouble finding jeans that fit. Where are all of the women that can wear the jeans we try on and can't fit?

Eddie Bauer sells hipless, buttless jeans in tall, they also have a variety of other styles including curvy (smaller waist and bigger hips and bottom), along with petites and plus sizes.

I'll have to try those again now that my shape has changed some. So far they didn't fit, but maybe now, or after I lose some more? Thanks for reminding me about them.

What boggles me is that when I am overweight and wearing larger sizes, the legs on jeans are usually the right length. I'm 5'4". When I'm at my right weight and wearing smaller sizes, the legs on all the jeans are too long. What's up with that?

I need no waist, all butt, no leg jeans...my actual inseam is about 26 inches. Good luck with that! I do not have any hip spread...

How about a 33" inseam on a 5' 6" frame? My "center of gravity" is above my center!

I'm 5'9", 33" inseam. Hubby is close to me in height (a bit shorter). He once put on a pair of my jeans and the hem was so long on him that he looked to be wearing clown clothes. We, up until my Year of Stress, have always been close in height/weight, but I am longer of limb, and the hip surgery actually gained me almost a half inch in height. In other words, at almost the same height, head to heel, I could always change lightbulbs he couldn't reach.

The jeans issue wouldn't even BE an issue if we didn't live somewhere with cold winters. My 2 pair of LL Bean flannel-lined will stay even though they're huge on me because I'll use them as soon as I'm physically capable of shovelling snow or walking any distance in sub-freezing weather (this will happen after a decent summer of leg-building work). But the jeans I wear to go out drinking/dining on Fridays, or for an occaisional lunch (why do I always misspell that word?) in Nov-Apr should be replaced. Which is why I'm not bothering until fall. For much of my life I lived in VA, HI, and FL and never even used jeans at all. But for now (spring is going to come, isn't it? Friday it snowed, and I don't just mean a light flurry!) and skirts, shorts, leggings will be enough.
