DG2 – Request for Shorter Rise
I surely can’t be the only one who can’t comfortably wear these as they go nearly up to the bustliner. 11" and 11 1/4" rises are ridiculously high on me!! I’ve tried them in the past and found them to be so uncomfortable as they roll down and cut into my waist. I know many others who say the same thing!! Diane uses mostly younger tall long torsoed models who are neither boomers nor do they represent a variety of body shapes and sizes. It would be great if she made some with a 9" or 10" rise so more of us could enjoy her soft stretchy materials. There was one style that did have a lower rise and they always sold out. I am a boomer and while I don’t have difficulty fnding jeans that fit great I really like the soft stretchy materials she uses.
Yes I have sized down because in her jeans I needed to go down 2 sizes in the one style that was a shorter rise. I even sized down 3 sizes for the jeggings I liked but still way too high for my comfort!! I even tried petite which were a better fit risewise but too short. I won’t waste any more money trying to get a fit since like I stated I do not have problems finding real jeans that fit great.
At the very least, they should provide that measurement, every time. Personally, I can’t wear her jeans because they are too LOW in the rise for my big old tum-tum. Todays’ pants look like they could be actually a bit higher in the rise than usual. But I am not going to risk it.
Harpo, I wonder if you should size down in her pants. Thing with stretchy pants, some of the fabric is due to length and some to accommodate the width. Smaller size pants might actually fit you better and be at your actual waist.
I am a boomer and her jeans hit me exactly in the waist, so probably they hit at the waist for most boomers just looking at the numbers that she sells. I love her superstretch because those are the only ones that are actually comfortable in the waist for me as my waist is larger than can be comfortable in the other styles, that being said, I wear them anyway because I love the quality and the way they look. For my individual body, if the waist were a couple of inches larger I wouldn’t have the "muffin top" that all but the superstretch give me.
Reviews were by people who got a free pair. How did they receive them?
I agree she needs to show several body types heavy legs theign a real person Diane brags way too much. All of her travels She doesn’t look over weight. She has thin legs. One thing
I am not blessed with. Wish I was. Not jealous so no slamming me just represent all body types.
