    Fed up with tight thighs on jeans

    Primal Fuel
    I am not shaped like jeans. I don't have stick legs and a huge belly. I have generous thighs, only getting more so with every squat I do. I got this idea from some lady's blog. I'm a terrible seamstress but it actually worked for me. I'm going to bring back bellbottoms.



    I slit the outer seams, sewed three men's ties together per side, sewed the ties into the slit seams. Hemmed them (because they were too long) and then I was done. Took the whole afternoon but now these jeans that hurt to sit in are super comfy and even the gaposis in the waist isn't so bad anymore.
    Female, 5'3", 49, Starting weight: 163lbs. Current weight: 135 (more or less).
    Starting squat: 45lbs. Heaviest squat: 180 x 2. Heaviest Deadlift: 230 x 2

    Ha! That's a great retro look!

    I don't understand jeans. I do not have a small waist. My hips are 38" and my waist 33" at the moment. And yet when I try on anything other than old lady jeans, if they fit in the hip they are huge in the waist. What are these girls shaped like?

    cute! They look great on you!


    Also... try western wear for clothes. I went to a western wear store and Wrangler Jeans worked great on my huge thighs. Also, they had a few shirt brands that had generous arms, with slim torsos. Of course they are all sparkley, but putting on a shirt that was kind of loose on my arms and fitted through my torso was amazing!

    Looks great! I'm all for 70's. And I second the Wrangler jeans. I used to get hand-me-downs from a friend and she bought hers at a place called Bi-Mart which I think might be an Oregon thing. Just simple, inexpensive ladies' Wranglers.

    Very cute! It will be fun to see how many people copy you. The day will come that you'll be walking down the street and you'll see your jeans in a boutique or on somebody - just wait and see!
