I've got an "occasion" coming up and I decided to go online to try to buy some new pants. Guess what. There are no pants in my size with a high waist. They cannot be bought for ANY PRICE.
I have been buying my jeans from JCPenny for at least the last 15 years. Why? Because they sell to tall women. Okay, I'm not all that tall (5' 7"), but I do happen to have long legs. I need pants that are at LEAST 31 inches. Guess what? The average length is 29 1/2 inches. So what's an inch and a half, right? Well, it might as well be 6 inches in the winter when your pants are far above your ankle.
But now that Penny's has gone out of the catalog business--there went my source for pants that actually fit. (I AM NOT HAPPY ABOUT THIS, JCP!!!)
But even if I can find pants that are long enough, I can't find them with a high waist. Someone my size does NOT look good in hip-hugger jeans. Every week I go shopping and see heavyset women in low-riding pants with rolls of excess flesh hanging over the top. That's not a look I want.
Before I could find tall jeans, my Mom used to add a length of denim to the bottoms of my pants. This was not an elegant solution, and you can't do that with dress pants.
I have searched the web and can't find any pants I can wear.
Don't tell me to wear a dress -- I gave that up years ago because I couldn't find anything flattering. (It doesn't help that I don't know how to pick clothes.)
I may have to go to this party in my yoga pants.
Are you hard to fit? If so, where do you buy your clothes?
