Q) Is there a nice fitting, fashionable jean for the 40+ age group? I am 5’3″ tall & 47years old. The problem is usually I find the waist of my jeans too tight. On the other hand, if I get a comfortable waist the legs/bottom are way too big. Is there any style of Paige jeans that would fit a thicker waist that is also not too high waisted or too low waisted? I think I represent most everyone I talk to, well, in my age group anyhow. Thanks for any help you can share! (Submitted by A. Johnson)

A) Paige would have been at the top of my list of recommendations so I’m glad you brought her up. Both the Hollywood Hills (see above) and Hidden Hills styles would suit your body type. They’re both a mid-rise jean with the Hidden Hills having a slightly higher rise than the Hollywood Hills, 9″ as opposed to 8.25″ – that extra three quarters of an inch counts!
