I'm finding it really hard to find jeans for her because of this butt-crack/pubic-hair, 1 inch zipper style of jeans that doesn't sit right on the hips so no wonder they don't ever fit any normal girl. She's not overweight but she is curvy at 16. She's all upset that she's suddenly a size 9 according to those kinds of jeans, but her measurements are only a size 5 or 7.
Are there any other jeans out there? Even I can't buy jeans except at the thrift store because I can't wear that style and all I can find that's new is that icky style. Any ideas of jeans that are fashionable and affordable without being ridiculously fitted?
And I second the Gap which doesn't usually go to the extreme edge of a trend.

Anyway, I did have her just put them on right away to stretch them out. They are still a bit tight but I will try washing them again (I only wash in cold).
Thanks for the advice. I think she needs to be less particular and I may just make her try on some Gap jeans to see how they feel. We tend to "owe" each other now and then, and I think it's my turn to receive! Gap here we come! No more butt-crack!

If she's into being more "punk" than I would go with levi's as there is more choice. Aren't "punk" jeans super tight, tapered leg, and black typically? Or is that nouvau punk? I've been seeing lots of black tapered legs around here lately.
Anyway, I'm curvy, always have been and gap companies are the most comfortable jeans I've found. They last for about 6 months, but very comfortable.
Good luck, I hated shopping for jeans when I was a teen. Those low rise jeans make me look like I'm about 20 pounds heavier than I am. Hmm, I guess that was 10 years ago. Why the heck is that style still in???:

oh, and, yeah, i always machine dry and then do some silly plie type squats to loosen them up. cracks up the kids, but it works for me! LOL
I too wash my jeans and then put them in the dryer - here in Minnesota line drying is not an option most the year ! Once in a while they're in there too long and seem to have shrunk. Usually they can be stretched back.

Also, if she is Punkish what about Dickies? They are normally pretty expensive but if you can find some on sale they might work, they are deffonitly sturdy and arent super low rise.
I hate lowrise pants too.. talk about uncomfortable and unflattering creations!
They're low-rise, but not HEY LOOK AT MY THONG low. They also are well-proportioned for hips.
I was thinking she would like the styles of Torrid but i am not sure how small thier sizes go.
The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it. We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
