Right Fit? Not So Much.

I ordered a pair of Lane Bryant's new "Right Fit" Jeans, according to which I'm a BLUE 6. I'm big and CURVY!

Well, they fit perfectly in my waist and hips, yes (where they have you measure), but there's an enormous baggy part in the groin/thighs. I look inflated there. If I could have them taken in from my lower hips through my upper thighs--that would be my right fit.

Maybe a future true RIGHT FIT will take into account how much your upper thighs, perhaps even lower hips--not just widest parts--measure. Or they'll tailor it for your multiple measurements.

Clearly, what Lane Bryant offers now is not a Right Fit for this Princess. :(

But it might be for YOU!

Dang. I was hoping to fit right in jeans again. Not yet. Back to my elastic waist ones.

(Though I might see if a tailor can take these in without costing MORE than the jeans did in the first place.)

that tailor thing is ALWAYS the killer.

and did you mail order these?

IMO there's nothing worse than that IM SO EXICTED IT IS HERE AND oh crap it doesnt fit now I have to send it back experience.

I'd like to say I've had the complete opposite results and for the very first time in my life, I found jeans that actually fit. I'm sorry you were the exception to their right fit but I love these jeans!

It sounds like the Princess has exceptionally lovely and thin legs compared to the rest of us Blue fit girls...I say count your blessings for thin thighs!

I've never tried these jeans, but I know I would definitely be a "Blue," too. hehe
