Lisa Cooney, 53, administrative assistant, Braintree
PROBLEM "I can rarely find jeans to fit me properly, given my height (5-foot-10), flat behind, and long torso," says Cooney. As a teen, she solved the problem by wearing men's jeans and altering the waist, but for the past four or five years, she's stopped trying on jeans altogether. Her perfect pair would give her a shapelier rear end and sit higher on the waist.
SOLUTION Joe's "The Visionaire" cotton-elasterell high-waist boot-cut jeans, $165
The style has the higher waistline that Cooney is looking for. The stretchy fabric means they're easy to move in and less likely to bag in the seat. The slim boot-cut flatters her long legs.
