Hi! Can anyone recommend some flattering jeans? I'm 5ft 6, 36f boobs which make me look bigger than I am confused and a bit of a tummy. Any jeans, whatever style, look terrible in my opinion. I'm 14-16 and 41 tomorrow! wine

I buy all my jeans from Sainsburys.
I have experimented with lots of brands and spent up to £100 on apiary but have found that these fit me really well. I currently have some straight legs and girlfriend ones from there, only £20 too!!

Any others, ladies?

I wear the next slim and shape skinny jeans which are a high rise, perfect for a bit of a tum and I'm also a big fan of turned up boyfriend Jeans with wedges or espadrilles/Stan smiths. my current fav jeans are cigarette shaped ones from next. They don't always get it right, I hate their prints but always go to them for my jeans.

You are a similar size and build to me. I like M&S skinny jeans - the waist is generous and holds my tummy in. I also like Next jeans, although I haven't bought any recently.

DameXanaduBramble Sun 22-May-16 08:55:55

I though that Saint jeans were v good too. I could tell their straight legs were exactly the same as my next ones but half the price a couple of years ago.

Ooh they look brilliant

DameXanaduBramble Sun 22-May-16 08:56:09

Sains, not saints

Also M&S relaxed skinnys - they have a turn up and are slightly shorter. Very flattering and nice with flip flops for summer.

Got a couple of pairs of French Connection and they fit really well. Avoid Mint Velvet, tried 5 different styles on and only 1 fitted and the quality has gone downhill

Levis straight legs are great and very comfy.

Lots of stretch, perfect waist height, good colour.

£££ but worth it if you live in jeans like me.

You're the same size and height to me and I've recently found boden jeans, wish Id found them years ago, cant link to them but they are ankle length with small zips at each ankle. really comfy to wear and make me slimmer than I am.

Also love levi curve jeans and got a pair from h&m a few months ago that are side fastening, think anything with side fastening instantly appears to make you slimmer, I dont need any bulk on the tummy area so these are my faves at the moment.

Try Topshop they are perfect when it comes to picking jeans!

Watching lots on eBay. Thanks everyone star

The Next cigarette ones are great. Though you'll probably have to buy a size 12 in them, as the sizing is mad...

Hoppinggreen Sun 22-May-16 09:35:32

Also m&s relaxed skinnies

hiccupgirl Sun 22-May-16 09:37:56

Slightly bigger (16-18) and shorter (5'3') but second M&S, Next and Sainsburys for jeans.

M&S Relaxed Skinnys are brilliant and I love the girlfriend fit ones both Next and Sainsburys do. All fit and wash well and have tummy space grin

Dorothy perkins eden jeggings. Suck everything in and have no bulky zip or button at the front which keeps everything streamlined. Range of lengths available and VERY comfortable.

DianaT1969 Sun 22-May-16 09:47:30

I'm a similar size but 5'4. These are my favourite ever jeans

I've ordered some slim and shape from next. I'll keep you posted! Thanks for all the recommendations xxxx

mrsfleming32 Sun 22-May-16 10:26:53

And some Eden jeggings!

mrsfleming I can't help with jeans but it is my birthday tomorrow too 🍾

Have a super day.

I was just about to start the same thread op! I'm 5ft 7", 34E boobs, and although can squeeze into some 14's, they are tight on the tummy.

I'm a SAHM and live in jeans (keep thinking about skirts now it's summer, but they're not practical with a toddler, and where do you put your keys/ tissues/ whatever with no little pockets?).

I have a pair of New Look jeans which I've almost worn out, but they're a few years old and the ones I've bought more recently are rubbish sad I've bought about five different pairs and they either fall down when I'm walking, are too tight, or feel like cardboard.

I'm off to Sainsbury's tomorrow after reading this; they have 25% off TU clothing right now too smile My problem is that 16 are usually too big, and 14 too small on the tummy (I have slim legs due to lots of walking). Fingers crossed we both find some perfect ones - happy shopping!

Forgot to say happy birthday for tomorrow! cakeflowers It was my birthday last week; all the best people are born in May! grin

P.s love those Gap jeans linked.
