Not fat enough. They do NOT make jeans that fit people with figures like mine. I tried on over 40 pairs of jeans at several stores, high rise, mid rise, low rise. Skinny, straight, boot cut. 12,14,16. Nothing!! My problem is my tummy is the biggest part of me. I can button a size 10 under my gut, but then no amount of baggy shirt will cover my gut. At waist I can button a 14-16, but then the hips, butt, crotch and legs are HUGE! I'm so disappointed. I'm at a loss. I'm not fat, it's just my gut, I can't work around it. Help!!!!

Look into getting the pants taken out in the gut area, or wear maternity pants.

 Maybe go bigger than 16?

I like the maternity pants idea.
