As a short petite 40+ woman, the zipper or buttons in front on jeans tend to jut out, giving an odd pooch-type area on my strawberry figure. One option is to wear elastic waist yoga type pants, but sometimes a gal wants to wear jeans. So here’s a compromise – JAG brand Jeans have a wide stretchy denim waist band with no front closures at all, so the jeans lie flat. Which makes the shirt on top lie flat. Which you can then layer with a sweater. Another nice thing about wearing pants with a flexible waist band is you don’t have to loosen or tighten a belt around the holidays – they just stretch comfortably to fit whatever time of the year (or time of the month).
