Ok are there ANY jeans out there for a size 18-20 that don't just plain hurt when you sit down?
I have skinny legs for my size so quite like skinny jeans. I'm also tall. Primark do good skinny jeans in different lengths up to size 20, but they still (along with every other pair of jeans I've ever had) hurt to hell when I sit down and I end up with a big roll of fat bulging out!

Are jeans just a no go? sad

It's so annoying. I get jeans that look good. Find a top etc. think that for once I feel like I'm looking ok and I try to sit down and it's a no go!

I know I need to loose weight to start, but what do larger ladies wear? I can't live in leggings and tunics all the time can I??

I tried on the M&S sculpting slim jeans and they were really comfortable but they only had them in short length and now they seem to have stopped doing them. But I have just bought a pair of high-ish waisted slim jeans from Next (I think they are called something along the lines of "waist-enhancing". They are the ones that cost £30, anyhow) and I haven't worn them properly yet, but they seemed pretty good in the shop when I wriggled around wearing them.

Although if you like skinnies, leggings might be better. Lots of them have stretchy comfortable waist bits. I look terrible in them, but they might work for you.

So annoying OP! I'm a 14 but am also tall with skinny legs.

I feel your pain! I cannot for the life of me find comfortable jeans which also look nice and don't fall down. I can wear high waisted jeggings as they're stretchy, but not jeans. If jeggings are an option I got some high waisted long length ones from missguided recently which I really like for comfort but the colour's a little iffy and cheap looking sadly. I've kept them for under boots anyway as they are comfy.

For jeans, I was reading that it's possible to have a stretchy panel inserted into the waistband so that you can wear jeans which actually fit on the leg without cutting you in half. I haven't actually tested the theory yet, but am considering it.

Thanks for the suggestions shall I've them a bash.

With leggings I end up with baggy knees!

Really really need to diet.

Maybe tunics and tights is the way to go for me. Sigh.

NYDJ are the answer but they're not cheap alas.

I buy a size bigger and wear a belt for comfort or buy stretch jeans

Try Evans, lots of different cuts (I'm not comfy in anything but bootcuts) nice soft denim that gives when you move and a choice of leg lengths. I'm a 20-22 and had given up on jeans for all the reasons you mention but I practically live in my Evans ones, cheap as well.
