About My Pants

I recently went shopping for new pants.  It seems I hafta go shopping for pants every so often because I often buy the wrong size (too big) and then I hafta get them altered (my seamstress knows exactly how to fix them) or the belt i wear cuts into my stomach and i’m all bunchy.  Yes, that’s a fashion word i just made up: bunchy. It means the pants bunch up in the waist cuz the belt is pulled too tight to keep my pants from falling down.

Why do I wear belts?

Because I hate floppy pants. I hate to have my hiney showing when i bend over or lift my arms. No one needs to see my private undergarments and this low rise business makes me irritable.

Speaking of irritable, I’ve only found a few brands of jeans that fit me consistently and don’t make me look frumpy and bunchy.  One day, while looking in my closet, I noticed I had a lot of the same brand of pants: Lee. So I counted them.

Turns out, I have 13 pair of Lee brand pants.

Light coloreds and denims.

and another group of greys,  browns,  and blacks.

Plus, if you’ll remember back from this post: I recently bought and wore a pair of skinty (skinny) jeans!

That is why, on a quest for a new pair of everyday jeans, I was dismayed when trying on new jeans. My go to size 10s didn’t fit right! I thought it was the cut of the jeans so I tried on a couple different pairs but knew in my heart the truth.  I needed a size 12.  Size is just a number, you say? Maybe.  But since Pammypam was a girl she’s struggled with being too thin so being a size 12 was indeed a conundrum.

What’s a girl to do?

What she’s been trained to do: complain.

I got on Twitter, found Lee Jeans’ Twitter handle and complained.

The results were spectacular!

Stay tuned for more of this exciting story of the shrinking closet!
