Well, I just wanted to rave about Uniqlo jeans, as they're so cheap, but they're the best fit. I used to splurge on designer brand jeans such as J Brand and Seven back home, but at triple the price in Japan it's a luxury I simply cannot afford. So I found Uniqlo, the Japanese ubiquitous brand, which makes functional and rather bland basics for the most part... except for jeans. I love them!! They fit so perfectly, and are comfortable, and don't stretch out of shape after several washes. I highly recommend shopping for jeans at Uniqlo- I wish they paid me to write this post, but unfortunately they're not.
Many foreign girls complain about Japanese sizes being really tiny. I luckily fit in Japanese sizes, but Uniqlo seems to have a broader range of sizes. Don't be fooled by the number, as they differ a bit from what I'm used to. It's best to try them on, as I surprisingly found out, my size at Uniqlo was about three sizes smaller than what I used to buy in Canada, unless I lost weight (but not that much!). I think they are flattering for most body types- curvy or not.
My favourite cut is the Ultra Stretch Middle Rise. They have snug fit, tapered leg and are so soft and comfortable that I'm wearing them around the house instead of my usual pajamas. Each pair is about ¥3,990, which is ridiculously cheap for Japan, and for that quality. Get 'em!
