Buttoms up!

How hard is it not to find the perfect pair of pants/jeans?
It used to be nearly impossible for me as a plus size girl to find good fitting jeans, omg, as I am short and have a big ass and belly the pants would either be too long and therefor baggy around the knees or too big around the crouch area because I would go up a size when I couldn't button the pants. They would fit perfect all around but I couldn't for the dear life of me be able to zip them up. Lots of sweaty moments in the dressing room. 
Today I must say with the plus size fashion industry growing every year it is much easier to find a good pair of pants, skinny as baggy (boyfriend jeans), boot cut whatever. (I hate boot cut...sawry!lol)

Personally I'm a skinny jean girl :) I prefer super super skinny. I once tried NY and CO "super skinny" jeans....they were not close to even skinny, what a sad pair of "super skinny" jeans that was, just putting it out there, they were straight. Anyone tried them? 
To be honest I only own like 3-4 jeans right now...which is sad. And only one pair of them are the right length for me, the others I have to roll up. (I'm 5.4. SHORTY!) which I do not like...I'm so sick and tired of having to ROOOOOLL UP every single pair of skinnies that I try. lol. But...today there are more cropped skinnies out there, or ankle lenght. Even Forever21 have their jeans come in Short size and Regular, Torrid has it as well...short, regular or tall...even SUPER short. I like that ;) I can go on and on talking about pants and jeans so...Im just gonna stop myself right here...

Well, because it's been so hard to find a good fitting pair of jeans/pants I resigned to mostly wearing leggings during fall, winter and spring and dresses in the summer, dresses/skirts with tights too. 
I hate restrictions...
That's why I've browsed the net, on my own will, to find different options from different plus size clothing sites. Forever21 plus size, Torrid and Asos Curve. Different prices but the same "look" :) Enjoy.

What "look" is your favorite this season? And what plus size clothing site do you prefer buying your plus size pants and jeans from? Tell me I'm curious.
I must say over all Im a bit disappointed at Asos Curves jeans/pants because they all have tiny ass pockets and they sit far apart which means that all our asses are gonna look really un-flattering. BOOOO! :P

Thanks for reading
XOXO

I like the first ones from Asos i've put them in my fave bag, but don't know if they will suit me... plus i don't use almost white jeans never! x

I usually buy my jeans from New Look and so far I was always satisfied and they're rather inexpensive. I've tried Dorothy Perkins before but they really run rather small and since they only go up to a UK22 there's no chance I'll fit into any pair anytime soon... I would love to buy from forever21+ and torrid for once but their shipping fees for non-EU countries are horrendous... (for f21 its like 40$ and then you still have to pay taxes :O...).

I hope you're successful in your search, at least during summer you can always resolve to wearing skirts instead : )

Hi Laura, I see where you're coming from :) But forever21 has an EU site http://www.forever21.com/EU/Product/Category.aspx?br=plus&category=faith_bottoms where you can shop without any additional fees :D and the pants are still affordable and in the same price range as the US site. xoxo

I know what you mean about the "super skinny" jeans being false advertisement, I ordered some "Super Skinny" jeans from Dorothy Perkins and they were kinda baggy in the leg and ankle area but fit in the waist. I love F21 and Torrid jeans the most and ASOS jeans (ASOS clothes in general) run big so you always have to size down but I'm loving those white leopard print skinny jeans.

How about taking them to a tailor and getting them hemmed? I have to do it all the time as I am 5'2 and the cost is not bad...
