Week Of Denim Problem Solving: Levi's Remembers We Have Waists

I am a curvy and tall woman. Any of you out there with this body type knows that it’s almost impossible for me to find a pair of jeans. My issue is that my hourglass figure makes it hard to find jeans that fit in the waist. Last week, my prayers were answered when I attended a Glam Media event at the Levi’s store in Manhattan.  I have to admit that I’ve been a fan of Levi’s all my life but wasn’t sure that without my straight and thin figure of my 20’s that I could fit into a pair of cute skinny Levi’s.  Boy was I wrong.

Ladies, here’s a tip for those of us with those tiny waists and fabulous hips: purchase denim with stretch and a tilted waist, but get the next size down so they will naturally settle in the right place when they relax. I love these Levi’s Eco Low Skinny 531 jeans (yes, they’re skinny and yes, they look amazing) for a lovely $69.50.  I also picked up a pair of Levi’s Eco Tab Trouser Jeans in Clean Air (a darker, office-friendly rinse) for $78. Not only does each waistline remain put, but the denim is eco-friendly, made from 100% organic and recycled cotton.
