Raw denim for curvy girls?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have a horrible time finding jeans that fit and I'm thinking of trying raw denim for the first time. Can any of you suggest brands/styles that work well for curvy girls? I have an hourglass shape and the vast majority of jeans are tight across the hips and thighs but gap like crazy in the waist. I can almost guarantee that anything labeled "slim fit," "straight leg," or "skinny" will not work for me. And I know people say higher waisted jeans are good for avoiding the waist gapping problem, but I do prefer a lower rise (7 or 7.5"). I've always had good luck with the Citizens of Humanity Kelly Bootcut and the old Paper Denim & Cloth Mod cut, if anyone's familiar with those and can suggest a raw denim analogue. In case anyone finds them useful, here's rough estimate of my measurements:

Natural waist ~ 26"
Low waist ~ 31" (this is about where I like to wear my jeans)
Hips ~ 37"

Thanks so much!

my gf is curvy and very short, and has a pair of raw bootcut jeans from jean shop from NYC. they fit her very well. of course the thighs were very tight @ first, but now they're comfortable and look great. the denim is a bit lighter weight, so i think that helps with the stretching. they will feel crazy tight @ first, if you're not used to the world of dry denim.
