Exciting jeans discovery. Had to share.

So, for the past 20 odd years I've bought jeans from the same old places.

At 41 and a size 12/14 I find topshop jeans are too tight and low cut on the waist although I live in its Cory jeans, which I don't think they make anymore. H&M jeans are horrendous on me and French Connection's sizes vary so wildly I gave up on its jeans years ago.

Last week I popped into Next to get some kids clothes and spotted a pair of dark blue denial skinny jeans. Had no hope they'd look ok as I never buy clothes for myself from there as I find the range too frumpy. So guess what? Not only do they fit like a dream, they've magically slimmed my hips and thighs down and what's more, they were just £20!

So impressed, I've just bought another pair.

That should read denim not denial!!

Really?! Denial, you say- are they the relaxed skinny jeans or something different? I had a baby 6 months ago and am generally wider!

sksk Sat 08-Feb-14 19:14:16

Oops-just saw the denim/denial!

They've got the right amount of stretch but are constructed enough to disguise the bloody awful saddlebags.

and just 20 quid? I'm looking on the website now..

I'm a fan of them too - I only ever buy those. The slightly more expensive ones don't fit as well smile

I really rate Next jeans.

might give them a try, just recently bought a pair of black skinny trousers from next and love them, very impressed

Can you please link to them? There are quite a few in there for £20. From your description they sound fab!

FrantasticO Sat 08-Feb-14 19:29:49

Link please, please please!
I will be the one to buy the pair of maximisers
Such is my style nous!

Bring on the link!

how skinny are they? I like a high waisted skinny jean, used to wear Topshop Kristen but they've stopped making them (and they went down the pan anyway) and the Jamie ones are too skinny, but a lot of 'skinny' jeans I've tried just aren't skinny at all.

Sallycinnamum Sat 08-Feb-14 19:35:04

They're called everyday jeans.

Trying to link but I'm away from home and have rubbish broadband.

Sallycinnamum Sat 08-Feb-14 19:38:23

They're not skinny, skinny. Sort of a mix between skinny and straight leg.

I love uniqlo ultra stretch jeans - especially as they'll hem them to the right length! But always like trying a new recommendation...

Sallycinnamum Sat 08-Feb-14 19:40:26

Right, can't link but code on label is 872 494.

Oops the link didn't work. If you tap the code in, the jeans come up on screen.

MrsOakenshield Sat 08-Feb-14 19:43:54

here we go. Not skinny enough for me, you can tell by the bottom of the leg.

these look good

MrsOakenshield Sat 08-Feb-14 19:45:35

uniqlo ones look good. What's the material like, I find a lot of jeans these days are made out of really thin material which for the winter, and feeble old me, isn't very good!

Sallycinnamum Sat 08-Feb-14 19:47:35

That's what u like about them-the material is pretty substantial so is thick enough to hold the wobbly bits in.

spiderlight Sat 08-Feb-14 19:49:09

I live in Next jeans. They're pretty much the only thing I ever buy from therer these days but they fit me perfectly, especially the higher waisted ones, which hold it all in beautifully! grin

LizzieVereker Sat 08-Feb-14 19:56:58

Sally, do you mind if I ask how tall you are? I am wondering which leg length to go for.

Thanks for sharing those, they look just like what I wanted thanks

Sallycinnamum Sat 08-Feb-14 20:01:30

I'm 5ft 4 and they're jjust t right length in regular.
