There are few items of clothing that we use more than our jeans. Unfortunately, for those of us on the larger side, finding plus size jeans for women is tricky.
For starters, many stores that offer plus size clothing tend to focus on dressy items. Even when you can find a pair of plus size jeans, they are usually large and shapeless. Or, they simply don’t look right.
All of this presents a challenge for women our age. Most of us aren’t in the best shape of our lives, despite ongoing attempts to get to the gym and watch our diets. We don’t necessarily want to impress anyone with our fashion choices. But, most of us still want to look good. We like to dress up occasionally, but, we also want jeans for everyday use.
All this brings me to the question that I would like to ask. Since finding plus size jeans for women is so tricky, have you had any success in finding them? Hopefully we can compile a list of stores that sell jeans that actually fit. I’ll take the most popular suggestions and update this article soon.
