We interupt this blog
...for a public service announcement.
I recently ordered some PJ Jeans -- jeans that are supposed to be like jams. Here's some pictures. These are PJJ (dark ones) in comparison to my regular jeans. I wear a size 12/14 and the PJJ were supposedly a size 14, but they just fell off -- literally.
Note that they have a very short rise -- 9". My regular jeans are a 12" rise or thereabouts. Also the PJJ were longer than my regular jeans, and since I'm short to start with, that's a problem.
Now here's the unattractive picture: yikes! Shield your eyes! That's me, showing how loose they are. They're about 2-3" below my natural waistline.
So...I'm returning 'em. On the Up Side, the fabric is fabulous and I like the way the legs fit. They're really quite comfortable, but they really are falling off my body. I find it flattering that a size 14 would be so loose. I may try a size 12, but I'm afraid with the way they're cut, they'd be down around my no-longer-svelte hips.
So back in the mail we go. I'll get a chance to evaluate customer service, I guess.
I gave it a good try!
