Does anyone know a woman who loves her jeans? I mean, really loves her jeans? These women are few and far between.

In my B.C. (before children) days I had finally found my PERFECT PAIR OF JEANS. They were Polo by Ralph Lauren Relaxed Fit Bootcut jeans. The fit was just right. The rise covered by backside without gaping. The wash made me feel cool without looking like I was trying to be a teenager. And, if I caught a sale, I could get them for less than $50. I loved those jeans.

Now, my A.D. (after delivery) body isn't the same as my B.C. body. I've almost lost enough baby weight that I can comfortably zip the jeans, but they don't look the same. Things have changed and I'm back on the hunt for the illusive PERFECT PAIR OF JEANS.

I found a tool that just might help. Zafu has a "jeans finder" quiz. You answer a few simple questions and it provides a list of jeans they say will fit you. They even rank the results as best fitting to worst fitting. They provide the retail cost of the jeans and a link to stores' websites if you're brave enough to order pre-dressing room.

My list included about 30 pairs of jeans in different brands that ranged from $35 - $170. My sister completed the quiz and had 6 pairs of jeans ranging from $20 - $65.

Take the quiz and see what you discover.

I haven't been out to try on any of the jeans on my list. I'm planning to take an "all by myself" weekend when I quit nursing, so maybe I'll do some jeans shopping then. Let me know if any of you try this.

I still have 3 pairs of my B.C. PERFECT PAIR OF JEANS. I can't bring myself to let go of the dream that one day they just might fit like they used to. But now I have hope that I might find an A.D. PERFECT PAIR OF JEANS that I love just as much.

    I forgot to mention that Zafu also has a Bra Finder quiz. According to Oprah, 80% of all women are wearing the wrong size bra, leading to posture and back problems.

    I haven't taken that quiz, yet. Seems pointless to do while I'm nursing.

    Try it and see if it help!

    It matched me up with 58 pair of jeans. I may try to filter that a little and narrow it down before I go shopping. I'll let you know how I come out with finding the Perfect Pair of Jeans.

    I'm pretty comfortable with the jeans I have, but I'll definitely try the bra finder.
