Jeans...Need to VENT

Ok, the ONLY jeans that fit me well are the Secret Slimmer jeans made by Fashion Bug,I have tried on literally about 100 other pairs of jeans, as i have hard time with the "gap" in the back, but here is the part that i need vent about...they NEVER have my size in the wash that I want, which is the blue/black denium,  Online or in the store Im a size 12, not tall not petite, REGULAR!! I was able to find (1) pair in the store, which is the only one for miles, as they have closed several of the stores around me, ONLINE almost never has them....just needed to get that outYell

    I HATE jeans shopping.  I also have the issue with the gap--I have big hips and a normal waist (plus I'm too short for regular lengths, but not quite short enough for most "short" lengths).

    Do you know anyone that can sew?  The gap is a fairly easy fix if you know your way around a sewing machine.  You could buy jeans that fit you well otherwise and have a friend that can sew fix them (or pay a tailor, but that's not as awesome).

    I really wish they did waist, hips, and length.  That would be my dream come true.

    Yep, jeans shopping is annoying for me also.

    I'm plus sized, and some brands have a stereotype of plus size as short and wide. So some tops/bottoms don't fit for that reason even if I'm looking at my normal size.

    I'm not sure if my size fluctuates (the scales never don't really change) but I'll buy a pair of jeans that fit well in the store... to find that the first time I wear them they're either too tight or too loose.

    I'm currently wearing a belt with my jeans, which I hate, because they cut me wrong, partly because I have to do the belt up so tight to get it to do its job.

    Shopping for tops bugs me even more... I'm going to have to start buying 'tall' tops, because the normal 27inch tops barely make it to my belly button.

    I hate shopping lol.

    Just take whatever jeans you like that gap to a tailor. It's a really easy fix and shouldn't be expensive.  There's no reason to stress out about jeans when it's so easy to make them fit like you want.

    I bought bras at a similar store last summer and they only had one in my size.  However ths salesperson looked at other stores and online etc.. and had them ship a few more to my house for FREE.  It paid for them at checkout and they were at my house in about a week.  I wonder if Fashion Bug would do that also?  It's worth a try to ask!
