    Great video. I'm an average sized girl. 5'2" and a U.S size 8. I'm generally an hourglass. You would think this would make it easy to buy jeans. No. Leg prisons in general are a nightmare. They make my arse and legs look stumpy and weird. I've totally given up. Xx

    Have you tried JLO jeggings from Kohl's? I love them! If you are shorter then 5'10 try the regular length. These are my go to pants!

    I forget how tall you are…do you have to buy short legged or long legged jeans, or do the "normal" ones work for you?

    I'm a boot cut girl 100%. I loved when bell bottoms were back in fashion.
    I get probably about 90% of my clothing from a chain store called Cato. Their clearance racks are my go-to for everything'

    Oh Torrid, you're so Horrid…. I hate Torrid jeans. They don't fit me right at all. I love Lane Bryant jeans, but only certain styles. Those RWN jeans are awesome, but coughs at the price. Why does good plus size fashion have to cost so much?

    I gained some weight in my thighs and ass.. and Jennifer Lopez jeans are the only jeans that fit my crazy shape. They are expensive but worth it, they wash well and hold their shape. The are also soft too. But I had to size up on dark and black jeans in my normal size. for some reason they are really tight.

    I REALLLLLLYYY REALLY like your hair right now. I wish I could pull this off but I'm afraid it'll ruin my hair. I used to color my hair all diff colors years ago and I had super long hair and it hasn't been long since bcuz of the bleaching so I'm very afraid

    This was beyond helpful as well as thoughtful, and a joy to watch! I have a pretty big wish list in terms of jeans brands. HSN and QVC both have what they market as plus size friendly jeans (Diane Gilman, Melissa McCarthy, Women with Control) I'm also curious about ebay's relatively new plus size section that includes jeans. So I would be super curious about all of the above 🙂 Definitely checking out RWN!

    I would love a video like this about shorts. I have the hardest time finding a pair of plus size shorts that isn't a Bermuda short, but also isn't just a pair of glorified denim panties. I just want something to hit about mid-thigh and look good.

    I'm not a fan of a wide waist band but City Chic jeans all seem to have that, you may want to try them if you haven't yet. I love their other items but the wide waist band jeans don't work on me.

    I actually like the plus size jeans from forever 21 they are the only jean I own. I use to spend tons of money on the torrid ones and I would have the problem of getting holes in the thigh area, but I have never had that problem with the F21 jeans I've had a few pairs and they have lasted YEARS!

    That third piece of fabric on the side of your favourite jeans is called a 'gusset'. 😀 They look amazing!

    Pretty much the only jeans I buy now are the a.n.a. skinny plus size jeans from JCPenney. It's either that or leggings lol

    This might be useful to someone. I just bought some jeggings at Avenue, and they were on clearance for $16.99! They are called "Virtual stretch legging" but they are denim and they have real jeans style pockets that open in both the front and back. So to me that's a jegging.
    Nice high rise covers all the stuff, medium wash with slight distressing (not rips, just faded areas). Unfortunately the ankles are not super tight , they fit almost more like a skinny jean than a real jegging, but they are super comfortable and they come in short, average and tall. and you can't beat $17 dollars! (they were originally $60.)

    YASSS!! Please do more pant videos. I'm a huge fan of jeans but its a bitch to find ones that fit my hourglass figure and that fit comfortably over my muscley thighs. i wear a 12/14 which is in-between the "normal" sizes and the plus sizes so things are usually too tight or too big. HELP!

    How tall are you? My number one issue with finding good jeans is length! My second issue is finding jeans that flatter my belly, especially since I don't really like high-waisted pants. I'm definitely an apple shape too, and I'm usually finding jeans that are looser in the hips/thighs, but dig into my belly. The most flattering and comfortable style I've found so far are Torrid Skinny jeans in tall or extra tall. However, Torrid's jeggings are NOT for me! Since I have a bigger belly and narrow hips, they slide right down. I couldn't size down either or they wouldn't have fit at all. I like the wider waistband on them and they were pretty comfortable, but they just weren't practical.
