levi's perfectly slimming bootcut stretch...they are THE best!

Lee's Summit, MO(Zone 6a)

And I prefer Cherokee jeans from Target - $12 pair and THEY FIT!

Dolan Springs, AZ(Zone 9a)

I like the men's Levi's 501 button ups- they were my original hip huggers, and they're built so much tougher than women's pants.

oh, i like the levi's 569 loose straight boy's jeans too.

If you click on a provided link and it takes you to an over-seas site, it's spam.

If you are refering to a comfortable fit for the mature (dumpling or pear) figure, I recommend the Classic fit from C.J. Banks or Christopher & Banks, I wear a 14 so I can shop both stores or sites. The last pair I tried on in the store were so comfortable that I wore them home. They have a bit of stretch and are cut larger through the waist, hip and thigh area. I bought denim capris for gardening. Very happy with them.

you are talking about the DELETED ?

(favorite pair of jeans)

Mittsy, I am indeed quite like you describe, more "dumpling" than "pear" though, and rather full in the thigh area, but my problem has always been that I am shorter than my size dictates... so to speak; so even when I buy "short" sizes, they are still too long, even an 8 or 10. (thankfully I am back down from 14's into my 10's again, and these are getting a bit loose in a few spots, yippee!!). Do the jeans from C.J. banks "classic fit" tend to lend themselves toward a woman of my description? I've got quite short legs and it's always been a real bear finding jeans to fit right. Thank you!

Cocoa Beach, FL(Zone 10a)

I usually cuff them or just cut them off and give them a new hemline. I'm short but the petites don't give me enough room from my waist to the crotch, and I can't stand tight clothing.

Somewhere in, MD(Zone 7b)

I agree, I don't like tight clothing either, ANY tight clothing, but especially pants!! It's always that same problem, as soon as I find jeans that fit "around", they're about a mile too long, it's always been that way, even when I was a size 5, I've always just had too much "roundness" in some places. Grrrrrrr. And I am the world's worst seamstress, so making a new hemline would just look like a 5-year old tried to do it, heeheeheee. Will have to check out local dry cleaners to see what their prices are. Things that make ya go 'hmmmm'.

Coraopolis, PA

Jeans for the mature woman? Without a doubt 'Not Your Daughter's Jeans' are fantastic and super comfortable. They have more stretch and a higher waistline which totally hides my 'muffin top'. The stretch smooths everything out and holds in my tummy (the three children one) and lifts my backside. The only 'con' is that they cost more than I normally pay for jeans, but once I wore them I couldn't wear anything else. They are machine washable but I never dry them in the dryer. They have held up well and are the most comfortable jeans I have ever worn (except back when I was young and skinny!).

I believe anything would look good at any age in life as long as you're confident with what you wear.

This topic was recently discussed on my mom forum, and this link was posted-


http://www.graspingforobjectivity.com/2009/03/mom-jeans-and-dreaded-long-butt.html

I know the average age of the women pictures is mid 30s , but I feel the same principal can be applied to most anyone!

I personally love a good fitting Levis, depends on your shape on which one you buy.

ETA: I just reread the above article and the blog author does another post on the same subject but with her mom as the model and says the second article is geared towards women over 50. I dont know what "mature" entitles, but thought I would post both anyway.

Amx, those were really good links, I enjoyed them (and learned from them) a LOT, thank you!! I had NO idea that pockets, and their placement, made such a huge difference. Hubby looked at them with me so we will remember what we read and saw the next time we shop for jeans for me. (yes, he likes to shop for clothes with me!) =)
Thank you again for sharing those links. =)

I learned alot too when I first read them, which is why I was hoping someone else would find them helpful (and not offensive hehe) .

Good luck shopping next time! Let us know how it goes. And how cool you have a helper- its kinda hard to seepocket angles behind you in a mirror so a second pair of eyes is always helpful!

Deep East Texas, TX(Zone 8a)

I agree, fun links and I hope to say I learned alot too. Thanks!

Somewhere in, MD(Zone 7b)

Podster, yes they were fun too, huh? Had me and DH both wondering how much "fun" the models were having, getting their butts photoed so much, LOL!
But (heh heh), I swear, I had never heard of "long butt" before this!! Haahahaaa.. the whole thing cracks me up... no pun intended. ;)

Oh goodness Amx, there was absolutely NOTHING offensive about those pages at all!! They were purely (entertainingly) informative! Though I must admit, it will be at least a handful of months before I'm ready to do any jeans shopping, but I WILL remember this, and I will come back to update. =)

Deep East Texas, TX(Zone 8a)

My downside is I hate to shop. I am a catalogue shopper so this could be difficult.
And I just 'bought' some jeans. Scared to look at the rear view... lol

central, NJ(Zone 6b)

Great articles and lots of laughs

Somewhere in, MD(Zone 7b)

Podster, do ya have a couple buddies you could borrow to be your "rear viewers"? ;) Haahahahaaa!!! "Do these jeans make my butt look long??" LOL LOL!!!!!

Deep East Texas, TX(Zone 8a)

Ewww... most of the folks I'm around every day are guys and I ain't going there! They would enjoy that too much! lol

Somewhere in, MD(Zone 7b)

Haahahahaaaa, OK, maybe NOT. ;)

Vancouver, WA(Zone 8a)

I love it when an old thread has new info
Thanks.

Deep East Texas, TX(Zone 8a)

Actually thinking that was a sales pitch, not new info. Anyone???

jacksonking112 has been posting on this forum lately and always includes that same link which i am NOT opening.....better to be safe. just because something is on DG, doesn't make it safe. okay, preachy mom speech over.

Vancouver, WA(Zone 8a)

I figured that out as soon as I posted. Sometimes it takes me a few minutes!
