    I recently discovered "Sweet Heart" jeans at Old Navy - small waist with big hips/thighs. After struggling to find something that fit me properly (thanks, squats and deadlifts), they've been a godsend.

    Sbhikes, I'm excited to see how the jeans are, I've ALWAYS had these problems with jeans.... PLUS I have short legs, which makes it even worse. I remember talking to a store clerk circa 1993 who just. Didn't. Get. It. I had big thighs because of muscles, and I'm actually curvy, not someone using the word "curvy" as a polite (erm... Empowering?) term for "overweight."

    I've found the "sweetheart" jeans at old navy fit okay, and the fit 1 or fit 4 (depending on how high you like the waist) at Target are decent as well. Both places are cheapish (I'm still losing baby weight, so I'm not quite ready for jeans that cost more than $20-30), and carry short length (although still longer than my legs).

    I never understood how my wife had so much problems finding jeans until I lost a ton of weight, then started squatting. I have a 29" or 30" waist, and I can no longer wear anything but loose fit jeans, and even those feel snug. Two years ago I was wearing some trendy bootcut jeans. I tried them on a few months ago- they were tight in the thighs, but I thought I could maybe stretch them out. I wore them around the house for a bit until the seat ripped out.

    Guys jeans are also terrible- no ass, no hips, no thighs, no calves, big belly/waist.

    Edit: Yes, I know it's still probably easier for me to find jeans than most of you women, but now I finally understand this conversation.

    I've gotten lucky with The Dreamer at Old Navy. Still form fitting (but I can move and breathe without ripping them), and all requisite dimension FIT. Lucky has a fit that works for me, but I'll be blasted if I can remember what it was (I think they stopped carrying it anyways, I got mine on eBay.) GAP and Banana Republic would both require me to gain a few inches in the waist and lose a few in each thigh. Target still can't get it right, in any of their fits. Silver's a joke. Joe's Jeans (their curvy fit) fit great, but I'm too cheap for that. Express jeans don't last long enough for me to care. Levis and Lees don't go down to my size. Whorister, American Eagle, and Graberbootie and Pinch don't fit ANY part of me (I fit one part and the others either sag or I can get half a calf in the legs.) Buckle is useless. The list goes on.
    I've tried on pretty much every brand and cut of jeans I can get my paws on, and keep going back to my Luckys and my Old Navy Dreamers.

    So, apple-shaped. Interesting.

    What's the obsession with Jeans? If they don't look good on you, and they don't enhance your figure, then why try to stuff yourself into a pair? I wear Size 11-1/2 shoes. I can' buy shoes in a regular shoe store and am restricted by the styles offered at LongTallSally. Now, why would I stuff my big feet into a size 10 and suffer and look stupid? I realize that size 1-1/2 work for me and I may be constricted by availability of style but that's life. I can't understand why anyone would try stuffing themselves into jeans which aren't going to enhance your figure. Why not wear a nice skirt, or dress or wide leg dress pants?
