I totally understand, Claire. I will never be able to pull off wearing women's jeans...no waist!

Claire and PF, I might know of some help for you. I watch The Rachel Ray Show everyone once in a while and yesterday (Tue., April 23) was one of those days. They had a segment called "Decoding Your Denim" and had three viewers expose their problems and found jeans that looked better than what each individual came in wearing. Might give you some info if you view the clip. I've never found good fitting jeans ever and have given up - I own one pair of jeans for when I really need them, then wear sweat pants around the house most of the time. I'll even go out in my one pair of "dress sweats" for the really cold winter days 'cuz my legs get so very cold in jeans.

I agree, it is so hard to find a pair of jeans that is just right!

You do have to spend a fair bit of time in the shop trying on numerous styles to find one that fits you like a glove

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...
