OK, so let me stress the word "slight" here...

I have a pretty slim waist, so I frequently find when trying on jeans that in order for the waist to fit, the jeans are a little more snug around the package area than I might ideally want. This creates a *slight* bulge, as in you might notice it if you looked directly at it, but probably not otherwise. My question is, is this to be avoided at all costs, is it not that big a deal, or - God help us - is this a good thing?

At work - bad thing. In social settings - good thing.
At church - bad thing. In a nightclub - good thing.

I disagree. Buy the bigger waist and get your jeans/pants tailored. You will wonder why you waited so long to get proper fitted clothes.

A crotch buldge on a male...whatever. A crotch buldge on a female....ewwwwwwwww. To avoid a crotch buldge regardless of gender, pay a few extra $$$ and get the pants tailored to you.

I frequently bought jeans in the men's department when I was in high school (miss the good ol' Levi 501s) and they frequently had a buldge. I didn't particularly care.

Doesn't matter. Women shouldn't be offended because why did their eyes happen to land THERE of all places?

Thanks for mentioning this. I'm a stickler for tailoring when I buy tailored clothes, but have never tried this for jeans. I know people get the lengths tailored with hem-preserving alterations, but do waist alterations work well on jeans?

You need a longer inseam,so try a different brand. Its not good for my eyes or your boys to be squashing them in like that. The other thing you can do is what chick with hips do. Sit in a tub with hot water while wearing the jeans. It stretches them to your shape.

Never heard of that. Will definitely try it next time I buy jeans. Thanks.
