I highly doubt that.

i personally dont care what's "in fashion". wear what you want. wear what you can afford or makes you feel good. who cares what the newest fashion craze is....it changes constantly, i cant keep up, and i dont have the money or closet space to always be up to par on the latest trends. i wear what i want. you should be lucky i leave my house even wearing clothes. hah. kidding

And even at that rate, you just look like an ass.

Exactly, there's a BIG difference between fleeting trends and classic styling.

I'm 5'8, and when I was really thin (110 pounds and a size 0, if that) Gap jeans looked awesome on me. I think it depends on on how you're built more than anything.

I wonder if all the pencil legged married women dress in jeans to appeal to themselves and their husbands. To me it makes more sense to appeal to their loved ones and not to the world of fashion, style or fads. I think a tall woman looks OK in boot jeans.

I am a kinda big guy weighing 225 at 6'1" amd work out every other day. I have a waist of 34-35, buy regular manly branded jeans, and the doctor said I am extremely overweight....I told him he is old and I can loose weight....hahahaha

In essence I think if a woman or a man finds the jean comfortable and fit well at the same time it is definately OK for them. I do not like seeing kids with pant waistlines dropping around their knees or women with jeans that show 3" of their belly...Just a peek of belly is good.

It is common where I live for a woman to show off their rear end wearing extremely brief short-shorts or to show their belly while wearing shorts but that's another forum..

That doesn't seem too big. Not skinny but certainly not fat. Tell your doc to pound sand. My husband is 6'2 and about 215. He has been up to 240 and because he is so tall he carries it well. Skinny guys are not much of a turn on in my opinion.

My brother and I work out. We were both weight lifters years ago and his wife has worn boot jeans and she is 5'9" and he is 5'11"...When she wears heels he has to look up to her. hahahaha
His waist is 28" and he purchases custom made shirts and suites or buys big shirts and tailors them to fit his 52" chest, 28" waist.

i'd do almost anything to have a nice set of curvy hips, a nice big booty, thick thighs, toned legs to fit into some skinny jeans. i'd be so fierce! being too skinny for skinny jeans sucks.
