QCut Custom Fit Women’s Jeans

If you are a woman who has ever purchased a pair of jeans, you know this process can be…fraught with peril. You have to guess at the random number that is allegedly your size, since it varies from year to year and designer to designer. Then you have to guess close enough that you don't get stuck in them in the dressing room, and you have to hope they aren't too long/short/wide/narrow/high-waisted/low-waisted/whatever. If you find a pair you don't hate, you purchase multiples on the spot, even at full price. You know. In Case. Well, Crystal Beasley decided enough was enough and launched a Kickstarter campaign to fix this. Called QCut (as in cut on cue), Crystal is designing jeans for you. And you. And you, too! They're all custom made, based on five measurements that include shoe size and bra size to help determine body type. This campaign has two weeks left as of today, and even though it's funded, you still may want to get in on it. Jeans that fit make an awesome Christmas gift! (Full disclosure: I know Crystal, and I am a woman who wears jeans.)

Underoos! Now in Adult Sizes!

As a child of the 70's and 80's, I have a soft spot in my heart for Underoos, the fantastic underwear that looked like actual outfits for Supergirl or Wonder Woman or other characters. It was a tragedy when they disappeared. Luckily, not only are Underoos back, but they are back in adult sizes! Exclusively available at Hot Topic, there are eight varieties at the moment: Batman, Batgirl, Harley Quinn, Captain America, He-Man, Skeletor, Superman, and Wonder Woman. This is one of those times when you may actually have to brave the mall, they appear to be entirely sold out online and it seems the sold-out ones vanish from the Hot Topic site. While it's fantastic they exist, you may find it difficult to get your hands on them, at least for now. But now you know, and as another 80's favorite explained to me, knowing is half the battle…
