Probably a stupid question [blush]

I have a pair of comfy old jeans (Levis) that seem to fit the same as they always have, except for a new problem...

The zip won't stay up.

Is it because
A) They're old jeans, and the zippers just don't work well any more on old jeans, or
B) Because although I haven't gained hardly any weight over the years, my shape is changing as I get older and my tummy is fatter.

If B), would getting fitter make the jeans fit better, or should I give up on them?

Get the zip redone in one of those repair shop places?

probably B, try the getting fitter and if that doesn't work go for Puppymonkey's idea.

It is quite expensive to get zips replaced - maybe £15. I would go for the safety pin!

Daft question I know but are you making sure the actual zip thing is pressed down. I have a pair of trousers liek this and unless I press the zip down they don't stay up!
