Back in the days of disco when buying expensive designer name brand jeans was the latest rage in my high school, I was still buying solid, dependable, reasonably priced, boring, old Levi's because they FIT ME. And I don't know what it is about jeans and my personal body type, but I've tried Chic, Wrangler, Lee's, Jordache, Calvin Klein, Gloria Vanderbilt, Limited, and more, and none of them can fit me correctly in my hip and waist and thigh area. Problems with other jeans have ranged from droopy drawers to underwear wedgies to wide open waistbands and swimming thigh room to choking waistbands and skin-tight thighs, which always make me feel like a banana whenever I try to peel those skin-tight jeans back off of my body.
It's hard to find women's Levi's in my area anymore because so much more room is devoted to higher priced brand names and store brands, but JCPenney and Kohl's usually have a good selection of women's Levi's that I can buy if the other diehard Levi's fans haven't already wiped out the shelves. It's a rare day when I can actually pick them up on sale in my size, so I'm usually paying full price and I'm glad to have them.
My latest Levi's purchase is a pair of 550 Boot-Cut Jeans that I found at Kohl's for $29.99. I appreciate having a little spandex stretch in my jeans because they're softer and more comfortable to move around in. The cut of the jeans accentuate my natural curves and long legs without giving me an underwear wedgie. I chose the dark stonewash color because the light pinstriping effect is more visually interesting and stylish than my standard workhorse Levi's. Anymore, I just don't bother trying on anything else because I can count on Levi's to fit me right.
