Menopot. Makes finding pants to fit almost impossible. If they fit in the waist they are WAY too big in the hips and I can't stand baggy butts. Styles that fit below the waist usually work best.

Big busted and long waisted. So many of the tops are not long enough.

Thanks Jacque!

I love my shape wear top by Bali, it snugs the right spots, has underwire and modesty coverage in the cups. I would love shape wear with all that AND a hook and eye in back to tighten or loosen.

I have a tummy, no hips and long legs making buying pants nearly impossible. I wish QVC would carry a more modern line of pants/jeans with blow the waist rise and longer lenths. If they had a hidden elastic waste that would be marvelous!

I usually have to wear a shaper and my favorite one has a longer length and is from Spanx.

My stomach is so much larger than the rest of me! Yes, at times I have been mistaken for being pregnant! My arms and legs are nice and slender, no double chin, but this dad blame stomach makes me careful about what I wear. I will keep trying to do exercises for this area but I'm tired of looking like I have a bun in the oven! Your show sounds great, Jacques!

Hi Jacque,

Congrats on the new show. Looking forward to it. My issues are with the BUTT AND GUT!! I have a real problem getting a bra that is comfortable around the bottom band that goes around the rib cage. They are ok when you are standing up but as soon as I sit down, the gut expands out but the bra band does not stretch to allow for comfort if you know what I mean. I buy Breezies but that darn band on all of them does not stretch and it gets way too tight. Also while on the bra subject, why does Kathy Gendel always say that her bras have sides that bring your breasts to the center. I have one on the left and one on the right and don't want them brought to the center making me look like a unicorn. I want them to stay where god put them. Now on to the butt. Pants need to have a little more stretch built into the butt and waist area. As I said before, when you sit, everything expands from when you are standing and the pants need to move more with you. And PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE find us some pants that are SHORT length, NOT PETITE. Like Jeanne Bice always said, "I am short not petite". For some reason when I buy pants in a larger size, to fit the butt area, the crotch is down between the thighs too far. I have a larger butt but my crotch is in the same place as everyone elses. I just need SHORT lengths. Thanks for asking for feedback. Can't wait for the new show. Love ya.

As I have been getting on up in the years, I have been small all of my life, up until I reached about 56 then I started have many things happening in my day-to-day life, some very serious, some hard to deal with, etc.. I started munching and really never did that all my life. Now I find myself with a BIG middle that I can't seem to lose. And at my age, weight is not as easy take off as it was in my younger years. Love you Jacque.

I wish someone would make jeans that fit at the waist. I am almost 60 and don't want jeans below my belly button it just doesn' look good below your belly button. A pair of jeans that fit in the waist your natural waist and fit in the butt without that big gap in the waist when you sit or bend would be nice.

So excited for the new show!! My problem areas are my abs and butt. I have recently made the FABULOUS accomplishment of losing 80 pounds!! So now I am in need of toning up these areas. Can't wait to see the great ideas :)

thatgirlsf1355184633.951 PostsRegistered 12/10/2012

So glad you asked! Answer? All of the above. I'm 65 now, and in pretty good shape but would like to keep what I have and improve. I was wondering if you've heard or seen the Fluidity Bar (Barre) infomercials on TV? I would like to get one, but was hoping that they would be available on QVC because, frankly, I'd rather get it from you because I trust QVC so much. Congrats on the new show. Looking forward to a fabulous and firm 2013!

I am big and tall and lots if figure issues! I carry my weight mostly in my butt and my thighs. As a result, I have a difficult time finding pants, because what fits in the butt and thighs, ends up being big in the waist (not to mention I need a long inseam). The How Fitting jeans were perfect (even had a tummy panel), but you no longer carry them. In addition, I have been on Weight Watchers and have lost over 50 pounds...so I have loose skin on my arms and legs. I could go on and on, but I will spare you and everyone else. Hope you will have a magic wand on your new show! Lol! Congratulations on your show - can't wait for it WOOT!

I have very large thighs from my knees up and most pants these days are for much thinner legs. Also if my pants fit my hips they are too large in the waist.

Hi Jacqui.... My worst problem area is my stomach and the area above my stomach. Instead of being flat (which it really never was).I have a roundness which is another way of saying fat/ In junior high school I had to wear my blouses and shirts outside my skirts and pants- I always had a tummy. That was, and is, my trouble area. I would love some new suggestions on how to wear beautiful clothing and maybe some suggestions on what kind of shapewear (like high waisted) is the best value and works best without killing you. Thanks... Love your honesty and personality... Thanks, Eve

I am a true apple. No rear and carry all my weight in my stomach and middle. Thighs are fine :). Bust is sagging :).

First of all, congratulations! I think you deserve your own show, so it's about time! As for trouble areas, I'm a mess from head to toe. I'm a plus size girl, somewhere between a 2X & a 3X. I was hoping we could check more than one answer to your question, but since we can't, I give more info now. I feel my biggest issue is my rear, followed very closely by my stomach. My legs are big too. I find it most difficult to get pants/jeans to fit. D&Co works pretty well, but I can't always find the same jeans, that fit well, online. The best shirts for me are tunic length. Another problem I have is with shoes. I have a Fred Flintstone type foot, meaning it's almost square. I love lots of shoes on the Q, but I need a roomy wide or even an extra wide. For instance, I love Clark's & would love to have several pair, but even their wide is too tight. I have been successful with a wide in Ryka. More wides & maybe a few extra wides would be great. As for brands, D&Co is my favorite. I do own one Susan Graver blouse & one Quacker Factory, sparkle & shine t-shirt. Can't wait for your debut! Looking forward to shopping with you! Merry Christmas to you & your family,,,including Polka Dot!

Congratulations on getting your own show! So happy and excited for you. Thanks for asking for feedback. I have scoliosis and although I had surgery to help correct it I still have a curve in the spine which gives me unique figure problems. My right side is straight with a bulge at the side of the tummy. My left side actually has a "figure" to it. This makes clothing hard to fit. My hips are uneven therefore my right pant leg or skirt hem always hang longer. I have a hard time getting waist bands that are large enough in proportion to the hips. Bras are a nightmare!! I understand that I have a very unique problem but I need clothing that help me camouflage my imperfections. Good luck with your new show!! I look forward to watching and finding out your solutions for the multitude of figure flaws we all have. Just love your bubbly personality, faith in God, and positive outlook. You are a very special young lady. May God bless.

Big busts, thighs. Big upper arm. Pants that you all sell are always too long waisted, even the petites which makes too much material in the crotch are which makes them baggy there and looks awful. All pants should have side pockets. Hate 3/4 sleeves. More elbow length sleeves or long sleeves. Thanks Jacque.

I'm looking forward to your new show. Sounds like it's going to be great.

I have two problems....if I buy a blouse and the fabric is too clingy my rear looks big. I also have big thighs and lots of pants don't fit right. If I get the size for my legs to look nice the waist and stomach are usually too big. I have to roll them up by the waist. They just don't look right. One store here has the perfect fit but they just discontinued the style. The new one that replaced it doesn't fit the same. It's very frustrating.

It's a tie! The back of my upper arms ... that awful jiggle. AND the pooch in my lower abdomen. Looking forward to your new show. Also to your finding out from Sue Clifton about the name of the green nail polish she wore on your show this week! Merry Christmas!!

Oh, sigh. As much as I love shapewear, I hate the oozing. It is great to have on long-line shapewear shorts or whatever, but then I spill over the top or around my thighs. That's just gross. I'd rather just be smooth and fluffy.

My hips and thighs are my issue area. I guess tummy too. And upper arms. But my legs cause the most trouble when fitting in pants and having any confidence at all.

I work out and eat well but you can't spot treat. Genetics wins that battle. So, I try to dress for my shape. I'm curvy but have a small waist so belts are key.

I'm rambling. Excited about this show! I always love watching you, Jacque.

Congrats Girly. My problem is everything, BUT. my inner thighs have got to go.. I've gained weight, lost weight so now, my inner thighs wave like the back of my arms.. What up with that? I've considered plastic surgery, but if there is a better solution, I'd do it! Help!

I am extremely self conscious of my stomach. I am actually pretty skinny but no matter how hard I work out or eat right my stomach is never flat. I have a very hard time finding clothes that fit me on top and in the waist. I want to be comfortable and still look stylish without having to wear shape wear underneath everything.

greenlee891355522388.8774 PostsRegistered 7/17/2010

Congrats on your show! My biggest problem is my stomach and waistline.Jeans and pants are always too tight in those areas, so I always have to go up a size. Then they're always too sloppy everywhere else. Help!!

What a GREAT idea! Why not design your own line and you can become the Diane Gilman of QVC? LOL {#emotions_dlg.thumbup}
