    I feel your pain!! ALL the jeans seem to smoosh or flatten my butt instead of fitting or flattering. I like the fact that I have some curve in the back and it seems liek all the jeans take what I like and try and flatten it out so I look frumpy or chunky.

    I'm a size four now as well and I have spent the last two weekend trying to locate some pants... unsuccessfully.

    Please let me know if you find a brand that works for you!

    Don't know how much booty you're talkin about here, but if the jeans have even a little bit of stretch (most do), they'll adjust after about 15 minutes of wearing them and hug your butt instead of squish it... just takes a litlte time

    I am NOT a size six...but have a larger lower half...and I have found that Apple Bottom jeans fit a fuller thigh and hip figure! At least at the size 18 place that I am at!

    The other thing, and I don't know if anyone agrees with me, is I DONT WANT MY JEANS TO STREACH. I hate only being able to wear my jeans once, and then having to wash them to shrink them. DRIVES ME CRAZY! haha

    Maybe I am just too pickey, But I guess when I have worked as hard as I have to get down to a size four I feel like I can be picky.

    You guys have given great suggestions. I think maybe I will try to spend a little more money on my jeans, and until I can do that I will stick to AE and Banana Republic.

    I have the same prob... Size 2-4 jeans, and a pear shape. My legs are quite toned from running so I need a little room in the thigh and hip... What makes it worse is that my legs are extra long (34 1/2 inch inseam), so even the Gap curvy jeans are too short. I actually cannot find jeans at any "normal" store - While I used to RELY on The Gap curvy jeans, their "longs" only go down to a size 6 :grumble:

    It's a b*tch, but I can't complain too much. After all... I'm a size 2! :laugh: 18 months ago I was buying size 14 jeans at the Gap so it's allll relative! :bigsmile:

    btw - I found jeans that fit decently at the Levi's outlet store in Niagara (I'm Canadian and drove over the border to find jeans - that's how ridiculous it is). If you've got a Levi's outlet or factory store near you, check them out.

    Have you tried Lucky Jeans? While they do stretch, there's one stitch that DOES NOT stretch. I usually can wear them twice before washing. Some Macy's stores sell Lucky brand so you can sometimes find them on sale too. While my hips are not curvy, I usually have to go up a size because of my thighs.

    I had a huge issue with jeans a few months back. All my pants came from Ann Taylor LOFT, their Ann Petite was a perfect fit or me. I bought a pair then realized they are almost TWO inches longer! When I asked a sales associate, they said they lengthened the pants because of heel height. Ugh! I'm a stay at home mom, I do not wear heels on a daily basis! LOFT also has a curvy fit called Julie. Good luck in your search!
