Back to the holding zone- a scientific analysis. Hopefully this will benefit others!

I have 4 pairs of pants in there and 1 pair of cycling shorts.

The pants are: black BR Sloan curvy, teal (not navy as they appear) Loft modern, orange BR sloan- the most stretchy of the lot, and beige Chaus (a good "white to me" color).

The pants all have 9 in front rise and 12 back rise. Inseam 27 in, except black 25. The shorts have 9 in front rise, 11 back rise, and 4 in inseam.

I have always had a problem, no matter my size of pants/shorts pulling at the crotch/camel toe. It's worse when I'm heavier, but still problematic at my smallest. The problem bum! Or rather...that pants are not made, and maybe cannot be made, for people with bigger bums.

To my natural waist, I need 10 in front rise- but (yikes) 15 in back rise. Looking at size charts- even plus size, or worse, maternity- wouldn't give the right proportions, as both rises increase with size increase.

The pants that fit me best are 10 in front 14 in back-with 4 way stretch.
Now you see why I like skirts/dresses and gear!

Think it's time to pass on this lot. Even when they "fit", they just won't work. But- Angie, do/can they even make pants with my proportions, and what brands?
