Ahh... It's lovely to see other people are pears as well! I'm 5'5 and pear shape except I have a really long torso. When I sit down people have remarked that they think I'm 5'10 or more. So it makes it a bit difficult for me to find garments sometimes that flatter my shape while also being the right length. So what brands do people like shopping at that flatter pear shapes? Nothing terribly expensive either please. I don't want to dream of unattainable designers.

I have Joie pants from years ago that are flattering on me.

Can anyone recommend a jeans brand or model that are good for pear shapes? An obvious problem is finding jeans that fit across the hips and are not too big at the waist, but I've noticed recently that the thighs are a problem for me as well.

I've tried the Levi's Curve i.d jeans and they fit me beautifully at the waist, hips and thighs, the only problem I have with them are that they are too low waisted, especially in the front...

^ I'm an hourglass, not a pear, but I have the same problem (thighs/hips-waist). I have only found one pair that fit me, by Zara - however, I've owned several of their jeans in the past and they never fit. I think it might be worth it paying to get the waist taken in.

Old Navy has a couple of models that might work (Dreamer, Flirt, Diva), but I don't know if you're interested in their jeans. That's the only brand I've found apart from Levi's that I can wear off-the-rack. Otherwise, I second the suggestion to have the waist taken in.

Thanks for the suggestions ^^ ! Unfortunately I don't have access to either Zara or Old Navy where I live so I haven't been able to check them out. I have however found something close to the perfect jeans for me, Scarlett jeans from Lee. They have good stretch and fit thighs, hips and waist perfectly. The only thing is I am not crazy about seams on the back pockets, but I think I'll be able to live with that.

My old favourite pair of jeans are completely disintegrating and I am contemplating picking them apart and trying to sew a duplicate. It'll be my first time sewing jeans...

I've worn AG and Joe's Jeans Honey in the past year. Really liked both, especially Joe's. Which is pretty much a miracle. But both disintegrated within a year (of daily wear)...is it just me, or did jeans used to be so much sturdier? A few pairs from Uniqlo have worked, heard good things about Zara too. Should try Levis next...
