Gurl…women’s jeans of any type are not going to have the amount of pockets you’re desiring simply because women’s jeans are made with the mindset that we will be carrying purses. Unless you go with a cargo style of pants that have pockets on the legs. The zipper thing you’re just going to have to get used to it not being in the “right place” for your scepter because again, women’s jeans are made with the mindset that we will always be sitting for the bathroom. I am plus size (as you can see) so I usually get jeans with around a 46 or 47 inch waist. Anything bigger in the waist and I run the risk of my flat ass being more noticeable. My suggestion is buy a cheap pair of women’s as close to what you would wear in the waist in men’s jeans. Boyfriend jeans seem to mimic men’s jeans in fit the best.
Good luck sweetie
