Re: Am I the only one who has no interest in

Much of the time elastic in the waist works for me. I have very small hips in relation to my waist size. Most women's set in waist styles are constructed for the traditional " hourglass" women's shape.  Smaller waist to hip ratio.

 

A pull on pantt allows me to buy the smaller size my hips and thighs need and allows the flexibility in the waist I need.

 

I envy those with well defined waistlines. I'll never have one. I've been seriously underweight and still had no definite waist.  I've just learned how to dress my body type.

Re: Am I the only one who has no interest in

I love pull on pants.   I am a female so I don't need a front zipper as all men do.

Re: Am I the only one who has no interest in

I like pull-on pants with wide bands. They don't add bulk and help shape the tummy. I also like zippers with buttons depending on the pants. I don't think they are hard to find at all and have a ton of them too.

 

Every retailer has an online store to shop from. QVC isn't your only option. I find it strange that people limit themselves to just the shopping networks when there are so many stores out there.

 

I see so many threads complaining about too many V-necks, crop pants, cold shoulder, 3/4 sleeves, etc. and I'm thinking don't you know how to google?

Following this logic women would only wear skirts. BTW I don't know of any men's athletic wear with zippers.

Re: Am I the only one who has no interest in

Wow! Nowhere in my post was I asking for a ban on pull ups nor did I imply that I didn't have choices! it was a post about MY preference and wondering if others felt the same about the proliferation of elastic ON THE SHOPPING CHANNELS.

 

I do shop elsewhere for pants but thanks for the many warm suggestions that that is indeed what i HAVE to do

@JJsMom 

I forgot to mention that the wider elastic/yoke is an improvement but I'm still not a fan of how they feel. And I still find a zippered/buttoned fly easier, for me, to get in and out of...

I don't think anyone who responded is "not" a female. lol
We all responded as to how we feel or what we prefer.
@Andreatoo, when I started seeing the posts suggesting we not know where to shop, I just SMH.

Re: Am I the only one who has no interest in

LOVE "pull up pants."

i am not a "tucker" so i enjoy a clean look and line with no bulk or bulging when my shirt/top/sweater/tanks go on top of my pants. my favorites are a hollywood waist.

i also prefer no pockets in my pants.

Elastic waists stay up on me. DO not slide down and that is why I like them.
