Catherine Pisacane, 29, nonprofit executive, Hopedale
PROBLEM "I've gone jeans shopping many times and always found it a frustrating experience," says Pisacane. She owns only two pairs: She paid $10 for the first pair and describes her second pair as not very flattering.

SOLUTION J Brand "The Love Story" cotton-elasterell bell-bottom jeans, $178
