When the Gap came out with new jeans with a fit called "Curvy" I got my hopes up. They are supposed to be made for women whose waist is smaller than their hips – that’s me! Usually when I try on jeans, I could fit a small child in the extra space in the back of the waist.
On Friday, I went with two friends to try out this new sensation in denim, and it was…a dud. Each of us found the same familiar gap in the back – no different and sometimes worse than their other fits. My hopes were dashed, but I experienced comfort in knowing that it wasn’t just me. Trying on jeans should not be a solo sport!
