Cassie, I have definitely had the "pear" thing going on my whole life! After losing weight, I found the most awesome jeans. The brand name is Neeso. I had never heard of them before, and I don't know how widely available they are, but they are made just for us. I found them in a little boutique-type shop but maybe they are available on line?
Most jeans always bagged in the waist for me, but these are like they are custom made. In fact, I bought 4 pair!
Hope this helps!
