As another short-torsoed person, I am cautiously optimistic. I haven’t bought a pair of jeans or regular in several years now, so I am excited. I don’t think high-rises will go away anytime soon. I suspect they will have a long run like skinnies because they work for so many people.

Groan - I would read this the week I've bought two super high rise pairs of jeans. Hope I get the wear out of them!

I hate low rise on me - it just doesn't cover my bottom. In fact the only pair I had, I actually added a bit to the top of it (Only worn with long tops, so unseen).

Mid rise I guess I can live with (I still have some from the 00's) but on my long torso with a long rise, they are still pretty low.

I suppose it's all a matter of perspective - I have a fairly big & round behind lol, like Trinny Woodall (from What Not to Wear), & I remember her lamenting on the show how she 'couldn't' wear high waisted trousers with a tucked-in top, because it would make it look like her bum went on forever. Two decades later, that's now a good thing!

At the end of the day, I'm just glad to see DYOT gaining traction. Hopefully that means different rises will continue to be available to all of us

When we were downtown yesterday afternoon, near the university, we saw a few teenagers wearing cropped tops & low-rise flared jeans like in the article. However, there were plenty of college-aged girls & women wearing high-rise skinny jeans & various cropped styles. It seems just about anything goes here where we live.
