I don't know whether to laugh or cry....

While I do understand where Jesse is coming from wanting you to always look cute and stylish, I as your mom, always think you do....ALWAYS. My bigger concern is that you are comfortable...and adorable, of course. If slender little YOU can be stuffed into something that produces 'muffin tops'.....think twice.

You DO have a beautiful little body honey....I'd really like it to stay that way....minus the pain. ~xo


That's funny. I'm a stretch jeans kind of girl because of the differences in waistline size during any given month.

I totally get what you're saying and think you look gorgeous in almost anythinb, but as someone who just lost a LOT of weight, I'm at the opposite end. I want tight -- because I can. Aren't we all nuts??? Happy election day.


Hi Jory,

Just wanted to say that I've started reading your blog. I'm wondering if you have heard about the book, "What Men Don't Tell Women About Business". I heard the guy (Chris Flett) on the Today Show and thought you probably have already heard of him. I'm wondering what your thoughts were. He seems to be really taking on the 'Old Boys Club". I just emailed him, but haven't heard back.

Anyway, keep up the great writing.



Having reached the age in life where I have to work twice as hard to look half as good in stretchy jeans, I found myself grinning as I read your post. Since I am not much of a shopper and receive generous hand-me-ups from my sisters who are a wee bit larger and much more cool, I'm usually wearing "last year's" jeans on the looser side, but I was recently encouraged to "buy a pair that fits." Apparently, the "correct fit" these days is as you describe--a denim "second skin" that one can only hope stretches as much as the real one. Thanks for the good humor:)


oops, meant to sign that last comment:)

I say wear whatever you're comfortable wearing. I'm a looser-fitting jeans person, but then again, no one ever accused me of having a sense of casual style.

My one caveat: One should not have to shave or wax in order to wear jeans. :)

You can enter your body info and the fit you want and it will search all the shapes and styles and return the ones to fit your body best.

I am a Lucky Easy Fit girl. They are expensive - but I just order them for $35 on ebay now that I know which ones are perfect.


Hi Jory,

I've been doing some additional research on the author, Chris Flett, that I talked about on my last comment. His company is "GhostCEO" (www.GhostCEO.com) and his book is a bestseller. I found it on Amazon here. Anyway, he was in the NY Times last Sunday under the "Career Couch" and he makes reference to women's blogs like yours so I thought you might like to connect. I'd like to see you interview him and see what he's all about. I saw on another blog he was a guest blogger. His email is: [email protected]

Best wishes,



Jory: Haven't checked out your blog in a while but so glad I did. This piece was hysterical! I love your writing. Hope you are well.


A very late suggestion: American Rag in the juniors department of Macy's. Trust me.


Comment:I'll agree a woman looks good in tight jeans and a cute top but if it's a must that a woman wears tight jeans for her man then is he really worth having ??
Sure it feels good to have to work ones hand in to a partners back pocket but is it really a must to wear tight clothes to please someone else??
I could really care less if my GF wears tight clothes as long as she's comfortable and I enjoy being with her that's all that matters to me because if she's not comfortable then nor am I.
