LL Bean's Comfort Knit Jean Crop Pants (click for the link)
I know that LL Bean isn't a very rockabilly brand, but I tend to find some of the best basics at non-rockabilly stores. Let me describe myself when it comes to pants. I hate shopping for pants, always have. I like higher waisted pants because when I sit I don't like my ass crack to show...or my underwear. A high waist also tends to fit my natural shape and helps me avoid the dreaded muffin top. My hips are a little more than 10" larger than my waist. This means that I'm fairly curvy - not fat, but actually curvy. If you recall an earlier post, I tend to refer to fat girls as being "convex" not curvy. I also have big calves because I do a lot of weightlifting. I have issues buying regular jeans because of my calves. A lot of times regular jeans end up fitting like skinny jeans. I am almost back down to a size 6, so I don't think it's due to my body size.
Lets move on.
I got these pants while at work. I ordered them in indigo. They look like jeans, but they stretch and feel soft like thick workout pants. I tried them on and kept them on (though I rolled the cuff a little). Here's what they ended up looking like.
