Finally!!!! I really hate to go shopping for pants because I'm a woman with hips and thighs to match! Love my curves, but absolutely HATE trying on jean after jean after jean! Ladies, you know what I mean! GRRR! I accidentally stumbled upon these jeans while in a desperate search at Burlington Coat Factory Outlet! (Yep! I had forgotten they carry clothing, baby furniture and all kinds of other items at good prices.) After a few hours of failure with other brands, I headed for the dressing room for one more fitting. Surprisingly, they slipped right over my hips and when I buttoned them they didn't come 2-miles above my naval! The fit was true to size and fell right at my natural waistline, not to mention they didn't cut off my air supply once I fastened them! "Muffin top" be gone!! I am SOLD! Comfort gets a 4.5 only for those of us who are not used to having the waistline fall so near our... hmm... 'bums'. It's a feeling that takes some getting used to after years of jeans that boasted that 'high rise' fit on you whether you wanted them to or not! Though I had to get them cut to my height and would have loved to have found more color choices, I love them so much I'm going to the site shortly to see what other styles are available for purchase! Curvy ladies, cry no more! Go try on a pair, love to shop again, and WORK THEM JEANS!
