Why is shopping for pants so frustrating?!

A size 6 is too small and gives me a muffin top.  A size 8 is too big and is baggy in the ass.  WTF?

I agree. I hate pants shopping. I am anywhere from a 2 to an 8 depending on the brand. And then there is the length issue. I am 5'8", but have a 33 1/2 inch inseam ( I am all leg), so nothing fits right.

That's a Junior's size.  I don't wear juniors.  Since having kids, my body shape has changed.

There's a guide on pinterest about buying pants. Let me see if I can find it.

And because of all the vanity sizing, finding a size 0 that doesn't fall off me is a challenge.  10 years ago I wore a 4 and I am the exact same size.

Same thing happens to me with a 1 and a 3. And most stores I go to don't have a 2.

I know how you feel! I'm 5'7, 135-140, and I have teeny tiny thighs, but my hips are 42". It's a joke trying to find jeans that fit me all around.

Can't find it. It was pretty good, too. :/
