So last week I found this cool website called Zafu.com where they ask a ton of questions and try to match you up with the brands/styles of jeans that are most likely going to work for you. They ask all kinds of things about your body type (height, weight, shape), the goals you have for jeans (hide my muffin top, make my rear look smaller/bigger, etc), the styles you prefer (dark denim, straight leg, boot cut, etc) and then spit out a list of jeans in order of best to least matching.
It only takes about 5 minutes to fill out the questions, and I got a great looking list of jeans. One of the brands that popped up the most for me was Calvin Klein. They are reasonably priced, so I hope to go try some on soon and see if they indeed fit. Maybe I will finally have the perfect pair of jeans added to my Christmas list for this year. My fingers are crossed.
