Sizing Advice Please (LARKEE 74Y)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi guys, I need some help figuring out what size to order. 


I have a pair of Zatiny 8AT and they fit almost perfectly (a lil tight).. keep in mind that they're stretched out as I've had them for a few years now.


I just lost a lot of weight recently but I'm between sizes. As I type, I am wearing a pair of Zatiny 88z size 36 which I manage to put on and take off without having to unbotton it. 6 months ago before I started dieting it would barely fit me.. I would wear it with the top button open to stay comfortable. Now its too loose and it keeps falling down below my butt.


I was surprised to be able to squeeze into my Zatiny 8AT since its a big size difference.. the pairs of 34 n 33 i had are all gone now. I have a closet full of 30 zathans (which I tried to put on.. but I can't even get them up all the way.. they're too small). I have a Viker 72C (sz 30 too) which I can put on me.. but not button up. 


So the question is.. should I go for a size 32 Larkee? I really like the wash that's why I'm considering buying a larkee. I just want to make sure it wouldn't be THAT much bigger than the Zatiny 8AT.. and not much smaller either. I want it to carry me through until I get down to size 30 where I can wear my older jeans. That's why I don't want to order a size 34 or something (which would get too big too soon). 


If you ask why even bother buying a pair of jeans if you plan to lose weight.. well, I need to put some pants on.. my Zatiny 88z just developed a near crotch hole so I can't wear em in public anymore.. and I'm in a conservative homophobic country so I can't wear my 8AT in public yet.. (because they fit me like skin tight).. thus, there's the need for a mid-way pair.


Your thoughts? Those who know the LARKEE fit.. and/or the 74Y wash fit.

I would just go by advice/comparisons given prior had it been a general zatiny wash. I searched the forums. 8AT is said to be stretchy so I'm second guessing.

My Zatiny 8at was always one of my tighter fitting washes in the upper thigh, butt and crotch areas and was pretty thick denim, I didn't wear them every day so I guess mine never really stretched out much, I also don't wash or dry my jeans so the fibers stay tight. Larkee is a little more relaxed in the thigh and if I remember correctly (I have never owned a pair of larkee but have tried them on a few times) The waist is the same as zatiny but the rise is a little higher so they don't feel skin tight in the thigh, crotch area like Zatiny. I havent tried on this wash yet in the shioner or larkee so I'm not sure if this particular wash runs tighter. If I were you I would check the forums to see if 74y runs big or small in either cut and that should help you make your decision. I think you will be fine with a 32 in larkee being the size you are now, and if you lose considerably more weight after, then you could always sell them to size down.
