Jacqui's "Before" Jeans
Jeans can be pricey, so "it's frustrating when you have to take up practically half the leg -- and then lose a lot of the shape," Jacqui Rosshandler, 27, says. She opted for a cropped pair (left) because they didn't require hemming. To avoid looking squat, though, Jacqui needs to invest in jeans that fit from thighs to calves -- and, yes, in tailoring.
"I love how much longer and leaner I look. I am going to live in these!"
