My wish: adjustable jeans

If you have kids, you are probably familiar with adjustable waist pants. They are a must if you have slender kids.

We cinch them in a lot for my older son.
Now, I don't know if you're like me and a lot of the women I know, but my weight can fluctuate. Some is a monthly issue, due to bloating. Some is due to holiday indulgences.

I'm tired of needing 2 or 3 sizes of pants in my closet. Especially when I know some weight gain, such as at the holidays, will only be around a few weeks. I certainly don't want to be uncomfortable either.

Do you know what I want? I want adjustable waist pants for women. And not the ones found in the maternity department. Because I am so past maternity clothes and pregnancy certainly isn't the only reason I might need to let my pants out a little or cinch them in.

I want some nice Levis that I can wear for years, but with a little button and elastic strap hidden in the waist.

It's bad enough women's sizing means nothing. I don't always want a belt. And sometimes a belt only makes the problem worse.

Jeans makers, any takers on this idea?

Oh, and while we're at it, can we permanently ditch the skinny jeans?
