That's cause very few jean makers recognize that some of us have wider hips than our waist! I love jeans, but hate shopping for them. I've gotten to where I like below the waist, but I am never going to fit in skinny jeans.
I hit one store and the sales lady made some suggestions and then looked at me and said "you're a what - size 4?" I wish! And, it's because of my hips! So I don't worry too much about size, just how they look and how they feel.
My most recent pair was from LL Bean. They have a curvy style. They are wider in the hip and thigh not straight leg and below the waist, but no butt showing. At least I hope not! You'll most likely have to go down a size from your usual. I stuck with a size that matched my waist measurement. The rest is a bit loose, but I'll take that over too tight any day, as I'm not one to wear super tight clothes.
