Jeans are always stiff when new or just out of the wash. I find I have to squash myself into them for the first wear and after an hour or two they are perfectly comfortable. Next time I go to put them on they are lose. I wouldn't do it with other trousers though.

With skinny jeans containing Lycra I always buy the smallest size I can fit into (without majorly squashing myself) as they inevitably bag and stretch.

Back in the dawn of time when I was a vair young woman, I expected to have to lie down on the bedroom floor in order to get my jeans zipped up. I then walked around looking exceedingly thin but strangely rigid since I could barely sit down.

Nowadays I couldn't be arsed with the discomfort so I buy trousers that I know suit my shape and size. Which is why I stick to certain brands. M & S who specialise in parsnip shaped trousers are the least flattering of all, incidentally. Instead I go for Gap.

Pandemoniaa I used to do that too, and even went so far as to having to use a wire coat hanger to pull the zip up. confused

IIRC, you cold even buy special hooks to pull the zip up if you wanted something smaller than a coat hanger grin

I recall that coat hanger trick, canuck. Seemed perfectly sensible at the time!

Replying direct to op - what's her back view like? Sounds like recipe for lots of back fat bulges exploding out. If tummy is squished, extra has to go somewhere doesn't it? Like too short spanx. All shoots out ends....
