I have 25+ pairs (approximately, because a lot are buried in my closet:) No, I have never thought of throwing them away. If I could afford a $250,000.00 pair, then it wouldn't matter and I would consider it, LOL!

Sized 6-7 to 36W

None fit "just right" but a few come close.

At my heaviest, 425, all I could wear were black sweat pants from Lane Bryant.

I am a jean girl. I think its because they do last alot longer for me then slacks do? That and I hate showing off my legs, so even in 110 degree heat I will wear some jeans and a t-shirt. Silly, I know. I own about 9 pairs? Some loser then others.

I think I have 6 pairs, but two are very faded and need to be replaced, others are beginning to get very baggy. It may be time for new jeans now the cooler weather is here, I wear capri's all summer and I have 5 pair of jean capris.

Every day in every way I will choose a healthy lifestyle~

I quit wearing jeans along time ago. It will be nice to get back into a pair of jeans. When I started this diet my hips measured 65", now 61". Two more inches and my hips will be less than 5 ft. around. So anyway every pair of pants I own has an elastic waist. Sad but reality.

good question. I could only dream of wearing jeans when I started my weigh loss journey at 306 pounds. In fact just being able to wear anything other than pull-up pants was out of the question. Now I can actually buy jeans at Costco and not even try them on first. I was a 4x and now I wear an women's size 8. I bought clothes in every size as I was losing. I have 5 or six pairs now. My new goal now is to actually stay in the same size long enough to wear out my clothes. No gaining more than 5 pounds. Lorraine

I love this topic! I love wearing jeans and hate the ones that have that elastic waist.. ugh! Do I look like crap in them.. probably.. do I care... NOPE! :)

How many pairs of Jeans do you own? around 15 give or take a pair or two

Sized from what to what? ranging from size 20 to 28

How many fit just right? maybe 3... I really need to donate the sizes that are to big to the local woman's shelter... after all not all women who go there are thin!

What's the most you've ever spent on a pair? about $60... but I average about $3 to $5 a pair as I shop at second hand clothing stores a lot.

I have 2 pairs of jeans, both size 26. I threw away my old "fat" jeans...finally!

They both fit, and one of the pairs cost me $45 on sale!! I am the discount queen, so that price broke my heart, but I quickly got over it cuz I look so darn good in those jeans!

I'd never pay $250k for jeans. My house didn't cost that much!

How many pairs of Jeans do you own? 1 My first pair in about 8 years

Sized from what to what? 22

How many fit just right? 0 right now, I got them when I was at my lightest weight and since I have gained about 25lbs they don't fit anymore :( I was devastated but I'm determined to get back into them before fall

The most I have spent is about $40 and that was a long time ago and no I would not buy a pair of Jeans for $250,000. I can't believe people who spend $150-$200 If I had $250,000 I'd have better things to do with it.

How many pairs of Jeans do you own? 4

Sized from what to what? 20-26

How many fit just right? none, the 26's are my before jeans, I have a 24 that fall off, 22 only fit for about and hour and then they relax enough I could carry a turd in my pocket, LOL. The 20's are awesome but little sung around the calf and loose around the waste. I have yet to find the right pair.

The most I have spent is $69 and no I would not buy a pair of Jeans for $250,000. I have trouble paying full price at the store when I could find something on ebay or consignment shops!

How many pairs of Jeans do you own?
um....enough to open my own plus-sized consignment shop.

Sized from what to what?
a few pairs of mens size 36 to 44, and a bunch of women's size 18 to 32.

How many fit just right?
three that i know fit. one is the size 32 from OSP, one is size 28 from goodwill (i'd never heard of the brand before), and the other pair is size 26 from old navy.

What's the most you've ever spent on a pair?
$69.00 - for a pair of wide leg jeans that are over six feet around the bottom of each leg. what can i say, i was a raver. :) i still have them and i can't wait til i can wear them again!


Would you pay $250,000.00 for a pair?
um, no. i usually buy clearance or second hand jeans so i typically don't pay more than $20 max, but i don't think i've paid more than $50 for any other than the one most expensive pair i own. i think anything much over that is too much unless there's something special about them - like insanely large pant legs or custom fit or something. :)

I have 2 pairs that are a 32 (don't know what I was thinking when I bought them, they were too big then), I have 2 pairs that are a 28 that are a little big and 2 pairs that are a 26 that are also a little big. I am looking towards not having to special order my clothes.

a ton,
I have one pair that was a 30, which is way to big now. Never had a 28,but I have 2 26s, which I am still wearing, then I have at least 10 pairs ranging from junior 15s to womens 8. I never threw them away. I know someday I will fit back in them. The size 8 is my goal jeans. I never wore them. I was at a size 12, maybe 10, then started slowly gaining weight. My finishing goal is to be a 6. For some reason I always wanted to be a 6, but never was. I am hoping my body will let me, but I will be happy with the 8 too. Those jeans look HOT!!

I have about 9 pair in the house

Size 24 - 28

None fit right. The 28 fall off of me (literally). The 26 are too big but I wear them right now. The 24 are still too snug

Price I pay $50

I don't think I'd pay more than $100 for jeans.

Is anyone else seeing the Jeans ad on this page? "Comfortable jeans designed to give you the perfect fit" Carhartt for women.

I've noticed before how sometimes the obvious titled posts (like Jeans) end up having ads to match.

Ah, the wonders of technology, LOL!

not too many although talls are becoming easier to find. i wear them over and over again....even cry when i have to retire one because finding the right fit is sooooo hard!!! I'd say i have 4 pairs that are appropriate to wear right now without built in AC!!

My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far I’ve finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already. - Dave Barry

I own at least 7 pairs now but kept my old size 28's and I don't even know what the waist is on those.
My jeans now are a size 1 to 3 and if by waist size a 26.
One of the last measurements I took when i started losing my weight was well above 50 inches in my waist.
When I hit a 26 inch waist I bought a pair of designer jeans for the first time in my life and I spent 100.00 on them.

I don't think I've bought a pair of jeans since I got to be above size 18. I miss jeans I just don't feel comfy in them at this size. Another thing to add to my to do list.
