It's that dreaded time again. Time to shop for jeans. It isn't quite as bad as swim suit shopping, but almost. I've been wearing el cheapo $8 jeans from Wal-Mart for quite a few years. I have to confess, they have the old lady elastic waistbands. It's comfortable and I don't tuck anything in. They are baggy as heck because I like comfort. I would most definitely get laughed at by "What NOT to Wear". So I'm finally ready to try for an upgrade. Here is my problem (besides a total lack of fashion sense). I have a pretty long rise. If I have the term right, that is the distance between the waist and the crotch. Most jeans ride up on me and I don't like walking around with a permanent wedgie. It's usually worse when I sit. I'm 5'6 1/2" and weight around 125 lbs. I'm on the slender side, but have a pretty good size caboose. I've never found Levi's or Lee's that fit. Where do you guys buy your jeans and how much am I looking at? I welcome all suggestions on where to buy, and possibilities on a brand that might fit my body type. Thanks!
