    Not even that long ago I have my last size, size 16 pants from 2015 that I kept because I wanted to get back there. I was buying size 18 for many years now same store. I lost about 30lbs and they were falling off, so I pop into a store and I get new pants - size 14. I try on my old size 16 - still do not fit! And they do have some stretch. I must have gone up in weight with the vanity sizes because size 18 fit me since 2015 but I was gaining on and off until this past April.

    I got the old Jeans on and zipped.

    That's the best reason to revive an old thread! You look great! :smiley:

    Good news. Women's Levi's 501's fit EXACTLY the same as my old Levi's from the 80's. Same sizing as well. Mind you, they are 100% cotton and NOT "pre-shrunk", so many reviews say that they fit "smaller than expected", but that's because they aren't vanity sized. My new size 29's are the same size as a very old pair I had from the late 80's/early 90's. The old ones are more comfortable as they are just broken in. I can honestly say, I miss the days where jeans were just plain cotton, no stretchy stuff.

    This is a complete tangent:

    I'm tired from working on the computer all day and thought the title of the thread was "Jesus from the 80s"

    Okay I am giggling about that. Sorry you had a long day at the computer. Hope tomorrow is better.

    I wish jeans were made out of that same denim from then, I think it held everything in Lol... now it all stretches out and shows every lump

    Not me. I like the stretchy feeling. I don't take my jeans off the second I walk in the door.

    I like a middle ground. Tried on some jeans today that were waaaay too stretchy. I didn't like the cling. They were like thick leggings with a zipper. Too weird! They looked cute and fit nicely but I couldn't get over that weirdness. Some give is good for comfoty but the total stretch that shows everything....no thank you XD
