Paige jeans thigh fit...

Hey all, which Paiges (in a dark wash with stretch please) would you recommend for gals with bigger thighs and butt? I tried on a pair once (not Hollywood hills or laurel canyon, just a normal light wash) and the thighs were too narrow. I got discouraged and just didn't try more. I am a 28 in SFAM stretch.

Ok I did it! I ordered the Robertsons in Dark Clean from Revolve. They should be here Friday! Yay!!!!! If I am feeling brave maybe I'll order Hollywood hills from Revolve if I like the Paige fit.

HH is also supposed to be roomier in the thighs. The difference though, is lost on some people. I have a friend who has both LC and HH in the same size and says the difference in rise is minimal, and she doesnt really notice the thighs difference at all. She has a more of a butt and thighs and said that even though HH's don't have creases (am I right? I at least know this was right 6 months ago, but Paige could have changed), they made her legs look much longer and slimmer. So maybe there is a difference!

I haven't seen any HH with creases, that I can think of..

but yes, HH is 'roomier' in the thighs, but I swear its by like 1/16 of an inch..there is almost no difference to me. but some of my HH are tighter than my lc's (same size, and the lc's run small!) so who knows. but yeah, the rise is different, and IMO, it's pretty noticeable and can definitely make a difference. if you want to see pics, I have some of me in LC and HH.

okay! you asked for it!

Hollywood Hills:







Laurel Canyon:







Somebody asked for these a long time ago on HF, so I've kind of just had them sitting around in my flickr account forever. Sorry, no robertsons, they just look weird on my thighs.

I think the LC look the best on you, but for me, HH would probably work best. Those are great pictures, thank you!!!

Do you suppose if I go up one size - from 28 to 29 in LC the thigh fit will be better?

i guess they decided to make HH with creases. when i worked in buying for retail it was the rule that HH never had creases...but this was awhile ago

nice butt mikayla! certainly better than mine

MissMK!!!! The LC's are amazing on you!!!! They are super flattering. The others look good too, but right next to the others, you can tell the difference.

IMO, yes because you have thicker thighs. They're gonna fit snug at the waist at first, but damp-stretch them, and they'll fit wonderfully after that.

I used to hate paiges too because of the way they fit. But now, the LCs are my favourite everyday jeans. They're just that good.

Hey, erika, I was saying that you are right, that HH don't have creases.

I have Robertson and HH. Robertson fits bigger from the hip all the way down. I love them both.

I finally did did get my Robertsons from Revolve, but they didn't look right on me. Fit ok in some places and didn't in others. It was the Dark Clean wash but it wasn't as dark as I thought it was going to be I guess. They were cute jeans, and I love that smooth, flat button on the front, but Paige just doesn't look good on me... so I sent 'em back. Such is life. Sigh... gotta try another brand...

Ok, but I have a feeling they are gonna be tighter in the wrong places, like the Robertsons.
