I’ve had two people recently ask me how to buy hard-to-fit jeans. So here you go folks…how to buy jeans for almost anyone (Note: this post contains affiliate links, please see disclosure for details):
If you’ve got a lanky teenager or mature curvy frame, hands down the easiest way to fit and purchase jeans is to order on Amazon (because they carry all sizes). Take a tape measure and measure the waist (W), then the inseam of the leg (length or L) . Write that down. Now, think about the type of body frame. Petite? Then you might get away with buying youth sized jeans for a better fit and save some money. Pay attention to fit. Is the body hefty? Tall and thin? For example, my lanky teenage son looks best in skinny jeans. They provide a nice lean look without extra material bagging in the derriere and thighs, which can look awkward at best. My teenage daughter? Skinny jeans or jeggings for a jean-leggings look. My middle-aged husband? Relaxed fit jeans for comfort. Next, jump on Amazon to order (click the image below, find your measurement in the drop down box).
You pretty much can’t go wrong with a pair of Levi’s.

Men’s Big&Tall Levi’s
No more dragging my reluctant teenage son shopping! These jeans are shipped to my front door and done. If it doesn’t fit, send them back and try the next size. It only took two tries to get it right. Easy-peasy, especially if you have Amazon prime. Be sure to check the fine print before you purchase to see about costs on returns where applicable.
You get the idea…
