skinny jeans that don't bag instantly (high-street prices)
Primark are really not too bad, especially for the price. I am 5ft 7 and they are just the right length although a bit too tight in the leg for my liking. I have v skinny legs so makes me look a bit strange unless wearing with boots. Can anyone recommend a skinny jean that is not super skinny?
Dotty, how often does she wash them and does she tumble dry them?
They shouldn't be tumble dried (ignore the label) as it kills the lycra and encourages bagging and they do need to be washed fairly regularly to pull tehm back into shape. I tend to wash mine every second wear and that keeps them quite nice and tight.
Oh, just thought, neither of them seem to lose any colour either. After lots of washing (inside out) they seem to be the same colour as when I bought them which I am very surprised about tbh as I have black as well as blue!
I have just discovered Only jeans. Think they are the best pair of skinny/stretch jeans I have ever worn. Love them. I paid £29.99 and I have them in grey but I see on the Very website they are around £24 in black.
