Low Rise Jeans

weather: cloudy
outside: 6.2°C
mood: idiotic
In a momentary lapse of judgement, I let userinfothe Husband fast talk me into getting a pair of low rise jeans. USD$20; Tommy Hilfiger. It's spelled correctly too, which isn't as entertaining, but what the hey...

Let me get this straight. I paid a whole twenty dollars — USD — for the express privilege of continuously feeling like my pants are falling down. All day.

How do people put up with these things?

How long does it take for you to stop feeling the urge to yoik up your pants every three seconds in public, thereby giving yourself a humongous wedgie in public?

Of course, they are a bit loose and I could maybe use a belt. But they're a Size 2. I'd already been hopping in and out of the fitting room, trying on a 6, then a 4, then a 2. I didn't have it in me to try the Size 0...

Oh, and yes, I fell for the "could you please pick up that thing from the floor for me?" ploy once. *smirk*

Yeah, I think I'll have to break down and get a belt... and I have to remember not to feel too bad about it being a bigger belt because it's really a hip belt which will be bigger than the regular waist belt. =\

What ploy is that?

Wherein he asks me to pick up something from the floor thus making me squat or bend down. =}

I'm not sure if that feeling ever goes away.

I recently bought a pair of stretch, long and lean, low rise jeans. Wore it, then it started to rained. As you can imagine, the weight of water-pelted jeans, made me feel like my jeans were going to slip off my hips or that I would trip over the ever-increasing lengths!

After awhile, I just decided, if it's going to happen it will. And just walked around seeing when it would. Never did -- of course I kept dashing to check in the mirror. ;)

Hah, always a great excuse for wearing revealing undies! ;p

Bootcut for me! :)

Yeah, I think I'll have to try it with a belt. =P

Bootcut for me!

Same =)

Hehe, my brain can't convince my gut of that... =P

Just out of curiousity, how'd you happen to pay US money for the jeans? Were you shopping Stateside?

Yeah, we went down to Tulalip just before the New Year =)

Too that new outlet mall? How was it. I drive by it frequently enough, but I've not shopped there.

*To that new outlet mall

It's the Quil Ceda Village. I don't think the prices are _that_ much better, but it's decent shopping and worth a look at least once.

The Husband says you can print out a thing from the website, take it to the Information Desk in the Food Court building and exchange it for a coupon book. I don't know if that was just a Boxing Week special though. We didn't get it because I thought it was just a printout of the directions and left it behind. =P

I have had one pair of low rise jeans that really were just irritating exactly the way you said. They seemed fine in the store and of course the friend i was with insisted they looked fabulous and I had to get them and did and regreted it.

However I am a big fan of low rise jeans, I think that perhaps it depends very much on the style/how low it is. I like my pants more or less at my hips. None of my other low rise jeans feel like they're falling when I wear them. Granted, they are fairly tight-ish, but I'm comfortable in them.

So anyhow, it COULD BE this one particular pair. But honestly, everyone just likes things different ways. At least Husband Guy got a bit of a kick out of them, and you only spend $20 US. :)

I agree. I can't wear jeans that go up to my waist anymore- they're too uncomfortable. But I do think it matters which brand and/or style you get. I have a pair from Abercrombie that are super super low, but then I have some from Old Navy that are lower cut but not uncomfortable. I love them! You just have to try some on til you find some you like.

Although, I'm not the jean nazi. If you don't like them, of course, don't wear them! :)

First of all, you should get the right size. If it's loose, any jeans will feel like they're threatening to moon your followers! I have a pair of GAP -- I don't believe in (paying for) designer jeans -- lowrise jeans and I love them, because

1. they don't rub against my appendectomy scar,
2. I don't feel that extra tightness after a full meal,
3. they rest lightly on my hip bones,
4. they give the people behind me a lovely peek at my plumber's buttcrack.

I have some "come and get me" Ralph Lauren Polo jeans that I love. They're low rise, boot cut, and very very very tight, so I don't really every feel that they're going to fall off me. I love them. They're too snug to wear all the time, but they show off all the right things. :P

Jan. 5th, 2006 09:38 pm (UTC)
Ha, nice =)

too snug to wear all the time

Yeah, apparently there have been reported cases of mild nerve damage in the hamstrings/gluts areas from wearing low rise jeans that are too tight. =P

Lori and I were going out one night, so I decided to wear a pair. We stopped at a grocery store first so we could pay her $700 phone bill. The line was pretty long, and she was feeling kind of frisky so decided to get me all excited.

I slapped her on the ass and told her to behave, then she started to step aside. I grabbed onto her hips and wouldn't let her move.

[innocent] What?

You're not going anywhere!

Why not?

[whispers] Uh, look down.

[looks down] [gasps]

Yea I know! Now quit it! :P

I was all kinds of red! It's not like it wasn't noticeable enough without her helping. :P

Haha, good story! Now, expand it a bit, and slap on "Dear Penthouse Forum," in the front, and make a few bucks. ;-)

Thankfully, such things have not happened with my lowrise jeans. Or wait, maybe it's "unfortunately" instead.
