I'm a *tad* frustrated. All the cute skinny jeans are for sizes 24-32. Now there is some debate about if curvy girls should even wear skinnies. Personally, at my US 14/16 size, I look awesome in skinnies. (not to blow my own horn or anything:smile: )Thankfully I have an hourglass figure, think Beyonce, hehe. Any who... I'm on the hunt for some cute ones for curvy-er girls. I did a search and didnt have much luck. I'm clueless as were to start, so I know the the ladies of tPf will know where to look!!!! TIA!!! ;)

Maybe try the GAP. My MIL swears by their jeans and I know they offer a whole array of sizes.

Sassy, I am the same size as you and had a really hard time finding skinny jeans. I randomly tried on a pair of z cavaricci in a 14 at Macy's and the fit was perfect. I laughed b/c it was brand I hadn't heard of in years but I am really happy with them.

Definitely Gap. They have skinnies up to US size 20. I am a curvy girl as well (US 16-18, depending on brand) and they are great on me.

I don't understand the word curvy- it means so many things.

I consider myself curvy at 5ft7 1/2 and 125lbs... I have C cup boobs,some hips and booty. I have terrible time finding clothes... Bc I have a small waist/mid section so I NEED a smaller size, but XS shirts are NOT made for ppl with boobs! Also... size 26 jeans (my usual) aren't made for people with a bum. Argh!

I've really liked Hudson's jeans (skinnies) they aren't too stretchy/too fitted. I think skinnys look best paired with boots... period.

To my knowledge Hudson's are made until a size 34. I'm a very popular size, sz 26... But need to go down a sinze in Hudsons bc they are made bigger. And I always come across larger sizes.

Torrid has some awesome Tripp brand jeans. My friend is in the same boat as you and she really rocks them!

Tripp is good for really stretchy/comfortable skinnies. Or try J Brand's 4-way stretch jeans, or Naked and Famous (they're japanese raw denim, so they mold to your body shape with wear) or William Rast (vanity sizes) or Current/Elliott (the Leggings style cause they're super stretchy and lightweight). Hope that helps :smile:
