The best fitting jeans I own are Levis 529, dark wash, curvy bootcut. I desperately need more options. Only curvy fits seem to work because my thighs are large. A straight fit almost always means the pants are too tight around my thighs. However, my rear is flat, so I often wind up with too much fabric around my bottom or hips. I'm 5'2 and wear either a 4 or 6, depending on how generous the fit is. The Levi's 529 pair that works is a 4 short (30" inseam). I have tried a bunch of curvy Kohls jeans (Jennifer Lopez, Sonoma, etc.), Ann Taylor, Loft, etc. I do not live near a Nordstrom, but would be willing to order with some advice. I would buy multiples of the 529s, but the other color options aren't appealing...I like darker washes and dislike whiskering/too much variation in dye as it doesn't flatter me.
I would love also a white denim, and those at Talbot's petite are wonderfully thick (not see-through) but had too much fabric around the hips (otherwise the curvy boot cut white denim fit in size 6 petite.
Help! I would splurge on premium denim if I knew what to try.
