A Midsize Pants & Midsize Jeans Try-on for Curvy Women

Are you midsize to plus size and looking for some good pants and jeans options? Well, today you’re in luck. I’m doing mini midsize pants and midsize jeans try-on.

TRYING TO BLOG BETTER

Hey Friends, Hey! I’m trying to post more here on the blog. It’s not that I have a lack of ideas, but the perfectionist in me thinks she needs to have it all together with great photos and point to every post.

But maybe, just maybe, you’d just like to know what’s going on with me, what projects I’m currently into or planning or dreaming about doing. I’ll make no big promises because I’ve broken them in the past, but like today, I’m just gonna create a post and tell you what I’m loving right now.

MIDSIZE PANTS & MIDSIZE JEANS FOR THE CURVY WOMAN

This is a little like a “try-on” session for things I’ve been trying on lately. But since it’s not about one brand and some of the things I’m wearing are older (I’ll link similar items) I didn’t think about creating a post about it until recently.

That’s kind of crazy I know. Because as a larger, curvy body type myself, I love to see recommendations for pants and jeans in particular. It’s one of the hardest things to get right on a full figure.

So without further ado, let’s have a look and start with the only non-denim pant in the mix.

MIDSIZE CAMO UTILITY PANTS

Camo ulitity pants in a size 18 and a sweater vest round out this midsize outift for fall. Add a long sleeve shirt for cooler temps.  #midsizeouts #midsizeoutfitsforfall #midsizeoutfitsfall #midsizeoutfitsfall2021 #midsizecamopant #over50fashion #over50style

Camo Pant size 18 || Sweater Vest XXL || Tee XL || Long Sleeve Option (I wear a XL in this one) || White Sneakers || Belt (old) Similar

These Gap Camo Utility Pants have been on repeat since they arrived. It’s no secret that I love loose pants that aren’t jeans and these fit EVERYTHING I love in pants. I only wish they came in a solid olive color. But they will be fab paired with a sweater and booties this fall too.

I will wear a long-sleeved shirt underneath the sweater vest now that the weather is cooling down.

GAP CHEEKY STRAIGHT LEG JEANS

Midsize outfit inspiration for fall includes straight leg jeans and a poncho. #midsizeouts #midsizeoutfitsforfall #midsizeoutfitsfall #midsizeoutfitsfall2021 #midsizecamopant #over50fashion #over50style

JEANS (wearing a 34 but sized up to the 35 for comfort) || BLOUSE (old) Similar || PLAID WRAP (old) Similar; Similar || BOOTIES || HAT

I don’t know why I look so fierce in this picture (getting over a giant fever blister didn’t help), but I know that I LOVE this look!

Straight-leg jeans are my jam and these vintage-style jeans are no exception.

Take note that “vintage” usually means a minimal stretch, which holds you in a bit more but for a price.

I’m wearing a size 34 (18) in this photo and they look great and felt okay…until I sat down. No thank you for a tummy-ache so I sized up for a looser overall look and feel. And I don’t have to stand up all day. 😉

The hat is one of my favorite purchases this fall and it even fits my big head.

KUT FROM THE KLOTH BUTTON-FLY STRAIGHT LEG JEANS

JEANS Size 16 (But ordered 18) || SLEEVELESS BLOUSE wearing XL; LONG SLEEVE VERSION || WRAP || BOOTIES || HAT

A very similar look to the one above but with a v-neck silky shell and button-fly straight-leg jeans with tons of stretch.

I originally order the size 18, but thought they were too big so I ordered the 16 which felt a bit snug, and they didn’t stretch out when I wore them around the house for a couple of hours. Currently waiting on another size 18 to arrive.

See? Sizing for a big booty is trickay, it’s trickay. 😉

Since these jeans have a raw hem, if I do keep one of the sizes, I will cut them off to ankle length instead of rolling them up.

SKINNY JEANS (JEGGINGS) ARE STILL IN TOO

Sweaters, jeans, and booties are a midsize outfit formula. #midsizeouts #midsizeoutfitsforfall #midsizeoutfitsfall #midsizeoutfitsfall2021 #midsizecamopant #over50fashion #over50style

SKINNY JEANS wearing size 18W || WHITE TEE; Similar || CARDIGAN Size XL || BOOTIES

Have you heard the news that skinny jeans are out?

I don’t know who makes up these rules. But I think they still have their place in our wardrobes.

Mine are technically jeggings and while these are fabulous for stretch and comfort and a little booty lift, I would like a slightly looser skinny fit. I’m still on the hunt and wish more stores would carry the larger sizes in their brick and mortar stores. It would sure save a lot of ordering and returning.

BTW, Old Navy is carrying all sizes in-store now!!!

Skinny jeans actually look really good with longer cardigans. This one is longer in the back than the front but I like one that goes to just above the knee, I think it’s really flattering…and cozy. Let’s not forget cozy.

WHAT’S YOUR DENIM STYLE?

While I love straight-leg jeans, I love a wide-leg and an ankle flare leg too. Remember these fabulous coated ones?

I still say, wear what makes you happy, even if it’s not in “style”. Because by the time we get to be a certain age, we know it all comes back around anyway. 😉

What’s your go-to denim style?

  1. All really nice styles and fits! I like the Donna Kut from the Cloth…there is also a brand I get at TJmaxx called Rewash I like.

      I haven’t heard of Rewash. I like the stretch of the Kut’s. I ordered a pair of mom jeans from them the plus size and they were too big. So i now have the misses coming. They seem to look more like the skinny jeans i have in my mind.

      Wit & Wisdom also makes nice jeans. I wore a pair of their skinny OUT but can’t find any that fit the same. I got some straight black ones this year though.

  2. You do look pretty fierce in these pictures! My husband doesn’t like camo…and he rarely has an opinion so I’ll have to skip those. I bought some extra high rise button fly jeans from Old Navy. I really like them…except for that gosh darned button fly! They aren’t exposed buttons like yours and have a flap over them. That just sticks out a little too much so I always wear something blousy over them. I think buying jeans is almost as bad as buying a swimsuit! If you’re ever down around Indianapolis, we should get together!

      I’d love to get together Marsha! I don’t get to Indy often but I’d make a a special trip. That could be so fun. As far as jeans, you are right, it’s an exhaustive search. I bought some button fly jeans from ON too and they’re very nice as well. While it’s not convenient, think the button fly adds a sturdiness that a zipper doesn’t and flattens out (or camouflage) ) where the pooch above my hysterectomy scar is. 🤪 Also, they do have those camo utility pants in a pretty rusty gold color too.

      Hugs,
      Paula

    Still on the hunt for the PERFECT jeans myself! Just ordered a pair of jeggings from Torrid in a bigger size than normal, because sometimes the “skinny” is TOO skinny for comfort! Alas, that bigger size IS bigger- too big for me! And the skinny part feels almost as skinny as the smaller size. SIGH… so the hunt will continue. I’m thinking maybe I need a “straight leg” jean? Where is the girl who used to wear flared jeans each and every day of her life and ENJOYED them?? Now at 65, I gravitate to knit leggings with long tops almost each and every day and am soooo comfortable in them!! But I want to wear jeans and that’s where the dilemma begins, and the search continues on. BTW, I absolutely ADORE your boho look with the GAP cheeky straight leg jeans!!! Way to rock it, Paula!

    Blessings and hugs,
    Donna

      You should try straight leg jeans, they’re a happy medium. I have some even looser ones to show you soon too. And, they’re not expensive at all.

  6. Thank you for this! I want to update my wardrobe and it really helps to see photos of cute clothes on a woman’s body that looks like mine. I’m going to check out those cargo pants from the Gap!

      Those cargo pants have been my most worn item so far this fall. Hope you enjoy them too.

    I have had good luck with Levi’s Signature jeans. You can find them at Walmart, Target and on Amazon. I wear size 18 in most jeans, but many brands styled in plus sizes are made for people with larger hips and thighs. Since I carry my weight in my tummy and don’t have large thighs those don’t work for me. The Signature jeans come in different lengths as well. I am 5’2″ and the short is the perfect length for me, plus the rise is normal not petite sized. Best thing? They are nicely priced. Most under $30.

      I have a pair of the Levi’s Wedgie jeans in plus size. I had to go up a size but they look nice except that the zipper ends right where my hysterectomy scar is causing my fat tummy to be accentuated. But they’re fine if I’m going to wear a longer blouse.

      Hugs,
      Paula

    I wore an outfit very similar to the second outfit after seeing this post. Tons of compliments! Thanks for the idea!

      That’s great Tracy. When we feel good in our clothes our confidence shines and we not only feel better but look better too. 😘
