I needed new jeans. The 4 pairs I bought when I first got to a size 10 are starting to fall apart. They have been very well worn over the past 2 years and are developing some air vents in the bottom area.
I went to the second hand shop to get some new jeans. $5 per pair for barely worn, good quality, jeans? Yes, please!
I ended up with 4 pairs of jeans; 2 size 10 and 2 size 11. I tried on a pair of size 9's that alllllmost fit, they just didn't quite do up. Then I tried on a couple of size 10's that didn't even go over my knees! So, 9's nearly fit and 10's weren't even close? Shouldn't it be the other way around? I also tried some 10's that fit but were a little snug for my liking, and some 12's that were swimming on me.
I WISH women's jeans were sized more logically. I don't care if I'm a size 10 (or 11) or a size 20, just make them the same size!!
The good news is that I got 4 pairs of jeans for under $20 because 2 pairs were on sale.
