I love Paige but Paige hates me- anyone else?

Fess up...if you've bought 5-6 pairs of Paige hoping that the last was just a fluke, and finding each time that Paige just doesn't look that great on you.

I'm so mad because I have wanted Met Ombre Las Palmas for over a year (I was looking for HH, but couldn't find it, so I got LC instead) and I got them, and...the pockets are gorgeous but I just don't think they do much for me. I am not a big person, but I have proportionately big thighs and Paiges just seem to make me look lumpy and stumpy.

I've tried HH in 2 different washes, LC in 3, and none of them seem to do anything for me. Which sucks because the denim feels very high quality and I like the way they feel.

Cue violins here!

Jessani- I'm sure they look wayy better on you then you think, you should post pictures and let us help you decide! I find that Paiges are a bit difficult because of the different rises and washes having really different fits, like I can wear a 24 in some washes/styles and a 26 in others, and it's really about finding the exact right combination or else they do end up looking funny (I've definitely tried on pairs at a store that make me look absolutely horrrribbbllleee). But when you find the right ones they are like a dream (oh the cheesiness, but it's true). Maybe go to a retail store like Macys and try on a whole bunch and figure out which ones work best for you, and then ebay search based on that?? I also bet the ones you got look hot...

Paiges actually fit me rather fine, yet I'm not curvy or boy shaped. I'm somewhat in the middle - a pear shape? Anyways, they fit me fine. Though sometimes I do have to tailor the length.

They fit me ok too so long as they are stretch. I'm sorry they aren't working for you, that's a bummer!

Yup. You need to show us the pictures. I refuse to believe it's that bad, because I've seen you look great in plenty of other jeans!

Jess - this sucks! I loved the Met Ombre you sold me (they have found a wonderful home...) I think the pics you posted on the other thread were great. Have you changed your mind at all??

I can totally relate. I have a hard time finding Paige's that will fit me right. I can pick up the same style in different washes and have 2 completely different fits. I just bought a pair in Nordstorms the past weekend, and they fit like a dream, but the pair I tried on before wouldn't even button up! Though I have not noticed a problem with these paige's making my hips and thighs look larger. I think that look really nice on. I love my curvy hips, butt, and thighs. It's just that many jeans brands don't!

Luvmyjeans...I love how the Paiges look....just not on me. None of the pairs I've tried *flatters* my body. They look okay, but if I'm paying over $50 for a pair of jeans, I want them to look hot. I just wasn't crazy about how fleshy I looked in them, it's like they add 10 lbs to my figure.

I'm going to try Robertsons and maybe one more wash of HH if I can find them cheap, and then just give up.

I only have one pair of Paiges, which I love, but I've bought and resold at least 4 other pairs because they looked BAD. I usually have to size up for LC's because the thighs are so tight!

I understand! If you don't think you look good them or if you don't feel good in them, then what's the point? Maybe the Robertsons will work out better. I still hate it for ya though...
