@ladyjane - Can that adjustment be done to blue jeans too? My problem with jeans is that I have to buy the low rise in order to get a comfortable short rise to fit at my waist.
The only thing is that the low rise are extremely wide around my waist because they're actually designed to fit at the hips on most women. And of course when I belt them, they buckle up with pleats in the rear. It's very unattractive.
Doesn't anyone understand the anatomy of us little women? Very few of us are built like a runway model and even their clothes are probably pinned and tucked and altered before the big show.
