    I have actually never seen a decent pair of high waisted jeans in person. I think jeans would be less comfortable if they were high waisted. :unsure:

    well you have to pair anything off with the right garments, but I've always found high waisted jeans were more comfortable because you don't have to pull them up all the time and I've never liked how the low riders accentuate the width of your hips. It's seems a little easier to control visual proportions with higher waisted styles.

    I think they can be very flattering...even skinny high waisted jeans..it all depends what you wear them with..i think a nice blousy top and heels and nice accessories and your good to go...it also depends on the shape of ur body as well...

    At least for my body shape, high waisted jeans are a life-saver. I'm naturally really skinny except my body likes to put anything extra in my stomach area. High-waists definitely hides what low-cut jeans would allow to spill over. I think, you can sum it up like this: different jeans for different genes. ;-)

    I find them very comfortable too, even more confortable then the low-rise jeans.

    I can't wear low waist jeans either. They are very unflattering on my body type. I'm short but have a long torso and low waisted jeans look really bad on me. I don't wear just under the boob Steve Urkel trousers or jeans, but a higher rise does look much better on me.

    I'm going through the old thread for brand suggestions, but does anyone have any recommendations for non-skinny jean high rise jeans?

    Do they ever make your stomach areas look bigger than they should? :ermm: That's why I've stayed away from them: big mid-section.

    I like the last 2 darker washes in the first picture. I think they can be pulled off in darker colors considering they slim, and high waisted jeans probably don't fit like a button on all people anyway.

    I also find high waisted jean more comfy. I find that they suit short tops better...

    I think that it is a 'love it or hate it' trend.
    Personally, i believe that high waisted jeans can make an outfit look fabulous if they're worn properly and kitsch if they get conbined with the wrong things.

    I love this trend, although it's nearly impossible to find a good looking pair.

    If you have the body, go for it. If you don't... don't.

    The gap just introduced their skinny jeans (which are great btw) in a higher waisted version. I'm going to try a pair and report back.

    I almost always wear high waisted jeans, but I never tuck my top inside them. I wear a long top so it doesn't look like I'm wearing high waisted jeans. I think they make my legs look longer.
