Okay, so I seem to ALWAYS run into this problem. I buy a pair of pants and jeans and at first they fit snug around my waist and they compliment my figure. After a while of wearing them, they always seem to get loose around my waist and then a little baggy. I really don't like wearing baggy pants and I don't like at all, when my pants start falling from my waist. I wear a size 33-34 and usually when I wear a size any smaller, it feels too tight and I can hardly kick up my legs. I'm thinking of now just purchasing pants that are smaller and feel very tight at first, in hopes that they'll loosen up later and conform to my body type.

Sorry, I'm not the most fashionably inclined so I seek advice from those who know a good thing about fashion. Thank you.

Buy one pair in a smaller size and see how it goes.

Get them tailored. Get a different fabric, with a different spandex ratio....

I think I know what you're talking about - it's that most of the jeans nowdays seem to have a little bit of stretch in them, it's hard to find just regular old cotton anymore. I have couple pairs that fit a little snug in the am, by lunchtime they are just right, and then I'm hitching them up all night ....

I find jeans with a little stretch hold up well. But there is an upper limit. Not all brands are created equal in the is regard.

I find that to be very true. I'll buy one pair of pants that are a 33-34 and never get loose and I'll buy another pair that's the same size and after a while, it feels like I can fit two people in them.

How much can that cost? If its more expensive then the pants, forget it.

I like to sag.
$10-20 to get the waist taken in. I have done that often. Makes a big difference.

I usually buy one size smaller and that works with jeans especially.
