I need jeans and I hate shopping. Help me.

I was a loyal Old Navy shopper before my son was born. But my body shape and size has completely changed, and their jeans don't fit me that well anymore. Can anyone recommend a reasonably priced jean (under say $35) that works well for a thick waist, average hips, and skinny legs? My waist is probably a 14, but 14 pants are way baggy in the butt and legs.
I hate shopping and I really don't want to spend several shopping trips trying to get my winter wardrobe under control. I'd try to wear the old jeans but they are way too big and drag the ground at my heels. Not a good look, on me or anyone, lol.

  • Lee brand jeans always feel more fitted in the waist and butt. they make them to fit for any body type. And usually Lee brand is cheaper. They make stretch blends, and straight legs, boot cut, and regular cut. Also washed out, or deep blue.

  • After searching everywhere, I had the best luck with good ol' LEVIS. They come in short, avg, and long and have some stretch to them - which I need as I'm always squatting down with my toddler! I found mine at Kohls.

  • THanks guys! I think I even have some credit at Kohls, I will check that out. I love stretch jeans too, even before having a toddler they were my favorite. But now I think they are a necessity.

  • Levis I like sounds like you need a good skinny jean.

  • I have always had a hard time shopping for jeans too. I have found I really like the Mudd brand at Kohls and also the Hydraulic jeans. Lower prices and good fit with a little give in them.
