well no wonder esme can’t stand tight clothing:  it’s BAD for you!  but when it comes to jeans, what are the alternatives?  esme has tried baggier and baggier jeans, only to find herself in danger of sporting the dreaded “mom jeans“.  or even worse, of having the jeans fall right off!  i mean, something, in the end, has to hold them up.  she has tried higher waisted jeans (in style at the moment), as these can be looser in the thighs—-comfy while standing, but often pinchy as soon as one sits.

on the path to jeanslessness,
