1.As a thick-thighed person myself, I'd just like to remind the world that our big thighs are special. Truly one of a kind.
2.But you know who doesn't agree with that? OUR JEANS.
3.If you're a card-carrying member of the thick thighs club, then you're already very familiar with the photos you're seeing. And I'm sorry for bringing up these bad memories.
4.But you can take comfort in knowing that we've all been in the same boat before. One day, you randomly notice the material has begun to fray, and that's when the panic sets in.
5.Surely the hole couldn't get any bigger, right? After all, these are your favorite pair of jeans, and they couldn't do you dirty after all you've been through together.
6.So you go about your life, entering cars veryyy carefully and praying every time you bend over to pick anything up. No one knows that your jeans are slowly dying but you, and you intend to keep it that way.
7.And then one day, you completely forget that you're wearing THAT pair of jeans, bend your leg in some weird position, and before you know it, you feel a gust of wind on your ass and crotch that wasn't there before.
8.Yep, your jeans have decided to completely give up. 😔
9.Given that this was the only pair that hugged your body in the most perfect way, you become an overnight seamstress and try just about every patch and stitch to revive your pants.
10.And sure, it works...if you decide to keep completely still for the rest of your life.
11.Sooner or later, your thighs rub together again, and those threads say goodbye to one another once more.
12.The holes are there to stay, and accepting that truth is harder than it needs to be.
13.So you're then destined to throw them out and begin an endless search for jeans that are as good as the ones that just died.
14.And boy is that a rough journey to embark on.
15.But let's get one thing straight here: Our thighs aren't the problem, it's the pants.
16.Like, I get it, friction causes fabric to wear down. It's life, I guess. But have we stopped to ask jean companies why their fabrics fall apart SO DAMN FAST?!
17.All I ask for in life is one pair of jeans that let me rock these thick thighs without fearing the inevitable. Is that really too much to ask for?
