Question about Kim Gravel jeans

Can someone tell me the difference between TripleLux and Flexibelle? I live in Az and do not want heavy thick jeans. I like a thinner, silky jean. 

Help with sizing: Also, I wear a size 16 in pants, yet looking at the size chart based on hip measurent I would need a 22w! No way is this correct. or do her jeans run really, really small? The larger models were saying they are wearing 14 9 about my size) and the other 18 ( I am smaller than she is) . Is the size chart incorrect?

@Calcgirl - I don't know the difference between the two but I do have a couple pair of Flexibelle and they feel a bit more like a knit but they aren't heavy or thick.  Also, in Denim & Co, I usually wear a 16 but my 16 Flexibelle are a bit big - still wearable but could go down a size - so today I ordered a size 14.  Know we're all different size wise but hope this helps some.

The flexabelle are 92%cotton and 8% spandex. The triplelux are 66% cotton/31% modal /3% spandex.  The materials used and the percentage of each material.

Re: Question about Kim Gravel jeans

Kim gave a description between the differences between the two types in her presentation last night.  She said the flexibelle is more of a knit fabric and the triplelux is more like a woven and denim.  That's why the triplelux can be distressed and the flexi cannot.  Described the triplelux as a silky denim.  You might be able to see on the video from the initial presentation.  But she did cover this in her presentations.  

 

Don't know about the sizing as I am not buying just watched at midnight.

Thanks for that information.  I don't want a thick, heavy fabric either and "silky denim" sounds like it might work.
