Shopping for jeans is one of the most frustrating things you can do. If you don’t agree, you’re either lying or we’re totally missing something.
From our own experiences, finding a pair of jeans that fits the way we want them to is a near-impossible task. Don’t even get us started on the effort of trying on jeans, especially the skinny kind. You pretty much need to be a contortionist, which is not fun when you’re in a fitting room. Then there’s the issue of sizing, which varies wildly from brand to brand, making things much more difficult than they need to be. You can really work up a sweat trying to find the perfect pair.
As these folks on Twitter would all agree, the struggle is real when it comes to shopping for jeans:

I'm having a Ross'-leather-pants situation in a Topman fitting room with a pair of super spray on jeans. SEND HELP. THIS IS NOT A DRILL.— Michael Worrall (@mikeyworrall1) March 22, 2014
love shopping for jeans. love 2 look at a bunch of bodies that are very much smaller than mine so that I may imagine how I will never look in those jeans. love how simply looking for trousers always ends up with self-hate. love it. it is the best. yes.— Kate Gray (@hownottodraw) July 20, 2018
been stuck in this zara fitting room for fifteen minutes trying to get my leg out of a pair of skinny jeans - never again...— Damon Dominique (@damondominique) August 14, 2016
TIL if you are already not feeling super great about yourself, you should probably not go shopping for jeans. So much fail. 🐫— karah leigh (@karahontheradio) October 22, 2018
If heaven is a place on earth, hell is trying on a pair of jeans in a just-too-small fitting room.— DJ Judd (@DJJudd) May 11, 2018

"Yup, these jeans fit perfectly."
Seriously considering founding a new workout programme that consists entirely of trying on jeans that are 2cms too tight, in a fitting room that is 2 degrees too warm.— Rory Cashin (@roarEcashin) March 19, 2018
