Lora wants jeans that are stylish and sophisticated and fit her long, size-14 frame. The problem? She has a hard time passing up a denim bargain. "I'll buy a pair of cheap jeans even if the fit isn't great," she says. "But then I'll wind up with 10 pairs of $30 jeans when I should have just bought the $65 ones that actually flatter me."
The fix: This style has a no-fly waistband -- the lack of hardware creates a clean line over the tummy area.
