An unexpectedly perfect fit
I'm tall and on the border between curvy and athletic. Wide hips, thick thighs, but a with flat booty.
At 5'10" and 175 pounds, it's a nightmare to find jeans that fit the length of my legs, don't bag in the crotch and tummy, or aren't either way too loose or way too tight at the waist.
In the past year, I gained 15 pounds so I had to go on a journey for the perfect new pair of pants that actually reaches down to my ankles.
I got sick of online shopping and returning different jeans, so one day I went on a journey to shop in stores at two different malls.
Starting at Macy's, I found all the size 12 and 14 long as that I said, but everything was a terrible fit. From there, I went to JCPenney, Banana Republic, Old Navy, J, Jill, some random other store, and L.L. Bean. Some places had jeans that were OK, but frequently the fabric was too thin, or too thick and crunchy like at L.L. Bean. And of course, almost none of these shops carried size long or tall anyway.
Feeling defeated, I was about to head back to my car, when I spied a small Carhartt location at Evergreen Walk in Manchester, CT.
I thought, "Hell. I've never been in there and who knows, maybe they have jeans."
Miraculously, Carhart had about four or five options of women's jeans. The young sales woman was so nice and help me find the only size 12 Tall that they had in stock.
It was a "slim fit" option, which is pretty much a high waisted skinny jean with a slightly looser give in the calf area. And the fit was amazing!!
Carhartt, if you ever make the same Jean in different colors, please send them to me because I would buy them in every option.
I have literally been hunting for jeans that fit and stay on my tall body for my whole life, and I would've never guessed the Carhartt would be my saving grace.

Finally found the ideal pants!
Finally found the ideal pants for work! I bought these pants in two colors. The fits are a bit different between two colors but nothing too major. They were a little tight on the thighs at first (I have bigger thighs for my body) but they expanded after a month and fit great. I'm 5'-3", 135lb and usually wear size 4. Bought both pants in size 4 short and they are true to size. I'm also happy with both high rise and medium rise fits. highly recommended!
