okay, so i've been craving what everyone else has been craving for- premium denim- for quite some time. normally, i'm a 0 petite, 0 short, or things of that sort is reg. retail stores like Express, Gap, or AE. I've had several different experiences trying them on, and none have been very pleasant. * i assumed that i'm a 24 and i went to try some on by diesel in a 24. Now, getting the legs through was the easy part, but i couldn't stuff my rear end into them! I mean i couldn't even get them to go through my hips. This was a while back, so i don't remember why i didn't try it in another size (maybe i was in a rush). * The next time i was at filene's basement with my mom to check out the sale and i found a pair of paperdenim in a 25 for only 11 dollars! Granted, i bought them because who could resist?? In general, the fit was not perfect but decent, except it was too long, more like 4 inches too long. And I decided to give them a wash before I go get them cropped; unfortunately, they came back to me a little shrunken. It became somewhat difficult to get into them, so I was dissapointed again. :s * Then a couple of weeks later my cousin gave me another pair of paperdenim in a size 24. oh dear, i thought. :shame: I tried my luck and this time I had to hold my breath, suck in my tummy and squeeze my buns tight to finally get into them. From all these experiences, I remember sweating like a pig before I got my gluteus maximus in those beautiful jeans. I really don't feel like they are big compared to my proportions. If i'm wearing the wrong jeans, they can even look somewhat flat to me. I believe i'm an average short petite asian female who wants her hunt for some premium denim to be much much more simple. thoughts, anyone??
