In the 80s, we wore comfortable trousers that fitted. Those were the days! But now it's 2016.
About 15 years ago, trousers became "hipsters" again, as in the 70s.
Here's a woman with a waist. It's that narrow bit in the middle.
Sometimes manufacturers just add a bit onto the top of low-waisted trousers:
All I want is trousers with straight legs, a waistband, belt-loops, and a waist ON the waist. Not somewhere in the vicinity. Not hovering near the hip. On the waist. I fear that "mom jeans" are thought to be frumpy, or else catalogue companies have a lot of old stock to get rid of. But if you go to trendy Dalston or Broadway Market, you will see girls all dressed in proper Mom jeans (see top picture). Moms want mom jeans! And we want them now!
