I went clothes shopping the other day which I HATE to do. (Strange for a female, I know…) This particular expedition simply confirmed why I hate shopping.
Bought myself a pair of low-rise jeans as per the fashion advice of someone who shall remain nameless.
Problem. While I do possess a pair of hips, they are not of the va-voom! type. When I walk (hell, when I stand) the jeans slide down over said hips. And while it is probably inappropriate to say this, I suspect my butt isn’t big enough to keep the jeans up either.
And, yes, I’ve tried wearing a belt. It just adds weight and speeds up the slippage.
Shit. What a waste of money. They fit perfectly in the store.
Since I’m not thin or skinny, I have come to the following conclusions:
1. Females who wear low-rise jeans without slippage cannot possible sit down in comfort. (Too tight.)
2. Countless others do not mind if their butts show. (This is not really a conclusion – more of a daily observation.)
3. Still others do not find it a nuisance wearing the crotch of their jeans at the mid-thigh point.
If anyone knows the secret to wearing these jeans (other than buying a size too small) please let me in on it.
Fashion-wise, I’m trying…but I need all the help I can get.
P.S. Those are not my Calvin Klein’s.
