SSBBW / FA Quote of the Moment

"I like to be the old fashioned gentleman. Nowadays, it is hard, though - because few women take it for what it is! But, with an SSBBW, it is almost granted - because she gets so much value from those small gestures that she generally will let them happen!" ~ Mogens (BC, Canada) [FA]

Pants review

It is hard to find pants when you have extra stuffs in your butt, belly, hips, and legs. I have recently tried some new pants and I wanted to share my reviews.

Catherines (http://catherines.lanebryant.com/) has changed their jeans again. They are back to Right Fit (Curvy, Moderately Curvy, and Straight) in sizes 16 to 34. If you haven't tried these jeans, you should. I am normally a 32/34 in pants. My hips/belly/butt is around 75 inches. I had to try a few different sizes and styles, but I found that I am in love with the Curvy (blue) 32 petite. They have lots of stretch, but don't bag by the end of the day. If you do look at the size chart, pay no attention to it. Obviously my hips are way outside the range listed. I am guessing a 34/36 could get into the size 34. If you can get to a store, you should to try them on.

Old Navy yoga pants (http://oldnavy.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=51121&vid=8&pid=285969022) are also a new love of mine. They have this style in black and grey, regular and capri length. I bought them in a size 4. I really think I could have sized down. I have a friend who also bought them. She has 86 inch hips and is 5'10". This same size was a great fit on her. She dressed her black pair up with a nice top and cardi. Her outfit was perfect for a work environment. They are so comfy and have pockets! These are only available online.

My last review is about the Faded Glory leggings from Wal-Mart. In the store, I only found size 4x, 26/28. The colors are coral, white, navy, grey and black. They offer capri and regular length. Online, I found that they go up to size 5x. I bought a coral pair and a white pair, both in size 4x. I found the coral to fit just right and the white to be a little big. They were about $7 a pair, in my local Wal-Mart. Some might not consider leggings pants, but I wear them with lots of different things on a weekly basis. I like that they had a few different colors and both lengths.

Hope this information helps in your search for pants. If there is a product you would like me to review, please contact me!

As always, if you have any questions, things you want to know about, article ideas, etc., please email me: fashion@ssbbw-magazine.com.
