I have the same type of body, and know I can't pull them off, either (which makes me feel less alone )

I don't know why stores constantly market them to Americans. If you go to Europe you won't see them any where and would not be caught dead in them. It is not 1995 anymore! They are so unflattering on both men and women and are never stylish. Does anyone else agree? I know a lot of you seem to just be ga-ga over them and I'm not interested in you unless you have a valid argument how they make you look good. It is like people want their bodies to look like triangles. You might as well put on a skin tight shirt and put your hair up in one thin long point to accentuate that look.
You say you're from France?
Here's some news for you... Boot Cut Jeans (as long as they are trendy) are still in fashion all over the world.

I'm not going to even cite higher priced stores; just look at Zara, H&M and Express line ... they are all over the place. Just go on their websites and visit some of their stores.

And please don't tell me that H&M and Zara know nothing about fashion, the French are standing in lines around the block to buy clothes there.

Normally I agree that price SHOULD equal quality; but the last time I bought a nice pair of jeans; the seams started coming undone after the first washing. (not a "load bearing seam" either, the bottom of the hem)

I still have a pair of Levi's jeans from high school that are in great shape, and they are one of my fav pairs, and the most comfy ones I own.

As for boot cuts? My fav style jeans.

I have really fallen for the Silver brand mid rise boot cuts. Not too high waisted, but not showing pubes like ultra low risers either, lol.

Umm..Apparently, Gisele Bundchen (uber supermodel fashionista) didn't get your memo to "stay away" from them either because she's shamelessly rockin a pair of boot cut jeans seen here.

I don't think there's anything wrong with bootcut jeans. I wear them all the time. I prefer the low-rise style, but bootcuts are a staple in my wardrobe.

Not a fan of boot cut jeans.

I don't like my jeans scrapping/ruined under my shoes, this is what happens when bootcut jeans are worn without boots. I wear mostly straight leg jeans, but sometimes skinny. My jeans are usually not too long and not too short, just enough to crumble at the bottom. The jeans I wear work with my body.

Just my preference.

In Europe, especially Holland - a lot of women wear skinny or straight leg jeans with flats or tucked inside boots. That is the style here, it works. Not too many women wear boot cut jeans here.

In America women generally wear running/tennis shoes (i.e., asics. these should be kept for running, not fashion) with their outfits and boot cut jeans seem "ók'". Furthermore, a lot of American women are bigger (fatter) than women in Europe. That is truth.

I prefer women with skinny jeans mixed with boots or flats, not tennis shoes. But, that's my opinion.

Mine jeans are made in Italy, with fabric from USA, Turkey, Italy, and Japan (I also realized you said most not all, but just wanted to let you know.

Well, that is a matter of opinion.

If anything, I think more Europeans care about the way they look than Americans do. This doesn't mean American's don't dress well - just that they don't mind dressing for comfort whereas Europeans are the opposite.

I like flare jeans because I can wear them with anything and I look great. Too bad they are hard to find since bootcut and skinny jeans are EVERYWHERE.
