By the way, I only wear men's jeans because women's jeans DON'T fit right. They are usually too high waisted, too short, and not only that, but like most women's clothing, they aren't made as well.

Sometimes I wonder if I am the only woman in America who doesn't own a pair of jeans. I can't stand how they look or feel. I haven't owned a pair in quite some time. Am I the odd man (woman) out?!
I like how they look, but I developed vulvar vestibulitis years ago, and though it's 95% managed, jeans have to fit just right, and I have to be feeling my best to wear them. So I generally don't. I'm a yoga teacher and stay-at-home-mom, though, so I regularly break the "don't go around in yoga pants all day long" fashion "rule".

I do wear jeans but it is hard to find some that are comfortable. It doesn't matter what size I am.
MO - what do you wear instead of jeans? I know you could wear dresses but do you garden or clean the house in them?

I wear boot cut, straight leg, and jeggings with long sweaters. So comfy:)

I still bum around the house in my yoga pants or pajamas. If I'm no leaving home I see absolutely no reason at all to be "dressed." Before I became more of a jean girl though, I wore almost exclusively dresses and skirts. I probably owned 1 pair of jeans, and my snakeskin print pleather pants (I used to live on the edge) and those were all the pants I think I owned back in the day.
Gluten free January 2012.
Tyramine free June 2012 - slowly getting a few foods back at a time.... scratch that
Low Histamine April 2013 - I swear this better be the last time I have to restrict my diet because giving up chocolate is the final straw
Iodine free briefly fall 2012

It's interesting to read the responses to see what people like.

Perhaps in another few years, the jeans makers will get a clue and start making jeans to fit again if one is over 30, or way over 30 . I still have a few very older pairs that are cut differently but are either worn out, or don't fit my plumper legs anymore. I'm not thin, but for heaven's sake I see people much heavier than myself going out in public in these lower-cut, low rider waisted things with the muffin tops so I know that there ARE jeans made for all sizes.

The only stores that carry clothing cut for a rear end like that are the higher-end hip-hop
style stores, and there's no way I'm paying 80$ plus for jeans. So, I shop for pants/ jeans entirely
at secondhand/consignment stores. I frequently find clothing that's clearly at least ten years
old that someone used only lightly. I haven't bought a pair of pants or jeans new in at least 8
years. Don't care what brand as long as it's not sliding off my bum for lack of material!

I say I hate jeans too, but I wear them. I wear them hidden though. It is hard to find bottoms 100% cotton and a tolerable die without having jeans. Hidden by dresses they can be snug or baggy and nobody can tell!
I feel so disrespected when parade royalty appear in their jeans.
