A good place to buy clothes if you are curvy?

I dont mean plus sized or full-figured, but curvy: hourglass figure, small waist but large hips and big bust.
Most of the clothes I see (at least in the Bay Area) are either for very thin women or very large women. Nothing for me.
Does anyone know of good places to buy clothes for hourglass figures? A good brand of jeans?
