where should i shop?

I'm really close to giving up on jeans altogether. Nothing i buy seems to fit in all the right places. If it holds on my waist, the legs are too wide..if my legs fit, it falls off my butt....not literally but i cant hold them up very well. I'm fitting size 4 at the waist and i'm roughly 5'4 or 5'5. would you consider me petite? what jeans and where should i buy that would be slim in the legs (i mean touching my knees all around) and sit well above my waist and not slip down? With it getting warmer i'm most likely to start wearing capris and shorts again everyday so its not too big an issue for the season but i'm still lost as to where i should get my jeans? name brands acceptable as long as its not TOO pricey.

  • levi's would definitely be in my price range, i'm thinking of going out tonight and see if i can find anything. i used to shop at goody's for jeans, but they closed and after having a baby i just dont fit the same.

  • Levis have those new jeans. Also try shopping in places like Abercombie and Aeropostle since you are so small you may fit into Junior size. Try on all jeans before buying to see how they fit.

  • The junior department is where I get the Levis..
    Abercombie and Aeropostle are much more money though...

  • I love american eagle jeans...boyfriend cut are my fav. (Avoid Old Navy IMO because they get so loose as the day goes on) Look for a Maurices around your area...they have great jeans/clothes too.
