Well, at least I hope they fit!! I just ordered a couple pairs of jeans from PZIJeans.com to see how they fit. I’ve been wanting to try them for a while, but I just got an email with a coupon code for 20% off, so I figured now would be the time to buy.
They promise great fitting jeans for curvy girls. I think it’s great that companies are finally making jeans for Pear Shaped women. Even though I recently lost 20 pounds and wear a size 4, I still don’t fit into regular jeans and would consider myself more of a pear shape than an hourglass shape. I’m pretty sure childbirth permanently widens your hips and no matter how much weight you lose, your hips are never going to be the same. They are just wider than they use to be and don’t want to go back. At least I have found this to be true for me… I have a very slim waist, only about 25-26 inches around. But my hips are another story entirely measuring at about 39 inches around… If I had to compare my body to a celebrity for reference, I would probably say I look a lot like Kim Kardashian. Yes, big butt an all!! (I love you Kim!!)
Kardashian claims to wear a size 27 jeans, but I’m pretty sure that’s in super stretchy jeans or she’s wearing PZI Jeans!!!!
My butt isn’t quite that round and… out there… and I have trouble squeezing into a size 27 jeans. I have a pair of True Religion jeans in a size 28 that I can’t even get above my thighs… (omg I can’t believe I just admitted that in public…)
With measurements like mine, I really can’t fit properly into “regular” jeans (ie. Old Navy, Gap, Lucky Brand, Levis, etc) just don’t fit quite right. If they fit around my hips, then the waist gaps a lot. And if the waist fits, well then I have to look around back to make sure I didn’t rip my pants… And I can’t even think about wearing jeans with no Spandex. It’s pretty much impossible for me to wear jeans with no stretch unless they are like 2 sizes too big for me. It’s not even about comfort… I can’t move in pants that don’t have any stretch to them. I don’t know how all of you other ladies can do it!!
Today I purchased the Pewter Skinny Jeans which were $79 and the Ebony Jeans that were on sale for $54 (down from $89). I also managed to find some cute Capris in grey that were on sale for only $10 (down from $59)!
The total came to $116.41 with the 20% off coupon and you get Free Shipping when you spend $100 or more. I hope they ship soon because I could really use some new jeans that actually fit!
PZI Jeans are available in sizes 4-16, with inseam options of 31”, 34”, 36” and 38” to eliminate inseam alterations.
I’ll post pics of the jeans when they arrive and let you know what I think!
