Finding Jeans


I dislike shopping for jeans. I get so stressed from trying them on, because half the time they don’t stretch to fit my thighs or if they do the waist is way too big! Then I would have to wear a belt and that just ends up feeling uncomfortable and looking bulky. Usually, I go up 1 to 2 sizes for jeans to fit my quads and bum. I hear this from a lot of my teammates, male and female. So my solution to the jeans dilemma is to buy “jeggings”. They are just stretchy jeans and leggings blend. I find them most comfortable and for me comfort is a must. Wearing anything too tight and restricting whenever I go out is not only annoying, but is all that I can focus on. I guess this is just one of the many struggles Olympic Weightlifters have to endure.
