Question Ladies...Do you like the skinny leg slacks?

I went shopping this afternoon for slacks (for work). I am 5-1, 125 lbs (working on losing 10-15 lbs. Being 59 my metabolism has slowed down. That's my story and I'm sticking to it! ) Anyway, every rack I looked at, had slacks that stated "slimming" on the tag. However they also had skinny legs. I don't care for those skinny leg pants and wondered if any other petite women have the same problem? If I wear a tunic top or longer length sweater with them (the leggings look), it makes me look even shorter and heavier. I imagine if you are tall and thin skinny leg slacks would work.

I am tall but not skinny & I like skinny pants. Like you I wear them with a tunic. I only wear them with tall boots. The boots seem to balance out my top half so I don't look quite so much like an ice cream cone.

I am tall and curvy and I can't pull off skinny jeans. Just don't look right on me.

Yes, I do like them! I'm just now getting into maternity things, and finding that the traditional maternity jeans fit so bulky! I found some skinny ones at motherhood and I'm happy thus far.

My own mother wears them too.

Yes, I like them when I can find some that fit. I am tall and thin and they look great at first, but I haven't found a pair that don't start stretching out within a few hours, and I constantly feel like I'm pulling them up all day. For this reason, I prefer leggings, but they of course aren't appropriate for work...

I'm not tall nor am I skinny anymore. But, the fact is, even when I was 16 and weighed 98 lbs I couldn't have worn them. I have never had skinny legs. I had athletic muscular shapely legs that now in my 50's are still muscular and shapely, but still not thin. Not everyone can wear skinny jeans and I've just about had it in stores. Every pair of jeans is skinny or something similar. I'm curvy and proud of it. When I was 20 I could have easily worn a size 2 or 4, but never in skinny jeans. It's genetics.

I do not like them at all! And for some reason JCP has decided that these are the only jeans they are going to carry. Wait, I did find a pair of jeans that worked for me there but alas they had no front pockets. It looked like they did but when I tried to put my hands in them there was no opening. Oh and many of the jeans that I did kind of like had so many beads and jewels on the back pockets I looked like I'd been attacked by the Masked Bejeweler.

Now I shop at Kohls.

I remember seeing a story on the evening news about skinny jeans last week. Something about how they cause circulation problems.

This is my problem area. For being so petite, my legs and calves are big. I have trouble finding a pair of boots too.

I'm only 5'3" and I love them. I didn't like the huge bell bottoms of a few years ago. I have small calves and was always tripping over all that material with the bell bottoms. And I have to say , being petite myself, that 125 is a good weight! Don't beat yourself up!

I'm average height and curvy and so cannot pull off the skinny jeans/pants look. I wind up looking ridiculous. I stick to straight legs because I find they balance out my curves much better.

I love them! I can't stand the other types. I'm 5'4" and for me, the skinny legs are hard to find in dress pants. Especially in any size over a 12 or 14 petite.

I have been losing weight since last October and have lost 14 pounds so far. Even my current skinny Rockstar jeans from Old navy in a size 16 are starting to look loose on me (as of today)

One thing I forgot to mention - I'm 41 and am of the generation that wore skinny jeans and dress pants (with a tapered leg) as a teenager. I never stopped liking them.

Bleh- i hate them. I want just regular leg pants and jeans. I do not want bootcut or skinny! I have been buying mens jeans just to get regulat legs- i also hate the spandex stretch in most womens jeans.

NO NO NO! Short little pudgy legs and skinny anything don't work!

And I hate them for my DD. They just don't work for her and they are the only option in stores right now...ugh!
