If you would have asked me at the beginning of 2016 if I would wear skinny jeans, I would have laughed at you and said NO!  It's not that I had anything against this particular trend or plus size women wearing them, I just felt that for my shape, they would look terrible.  Being a pear shape, I carry most of my weight in my hips and thighs.  Of course there are ways of minimizing my ass-ets and I thought skinny jeans could NOT be one of them.  I always thought that even slightly flared jeans helped balance my legs out and give me a better shape.  

One day a few months ago, I was at my sister-in-law's house and I believe I was wearing a dress.  Later that night we were supposed to go out with some friends but the weather switched suddenly and it was freezing outside.  I ran to Burlington Coat Factory near my sister-in-law's house just to pick up a cheap pair of pants and maybe a shirt to wear so I wouldn't be so cold.  Well the only pants besides dress pants in my size was one pair of skinny jeans.  I figured, hey, even if I only wear them tonight, it's ok.  They're only $25 and I'll give them a shot.

Now I'm a convert.  I own two pairs of skinny jeans to far and they are stretchy and so comfortable!  Honestly, even if they looked awful on me, I'd probably rock them anyway just for the comfort factor.  Since I've had some pics taken in them, I've decided they actually look pretty good on me!  Sometimes you have to step out of your comfort zone to find something great!
