My Principle jeans now have holes in them. I a hippy chick (meaning I'm wide) I like my clothes fitted. I hate the gap at the back in most low rise jeans and I want the jeans to hold my tummy in until I lose the weight I don't want M&S jeans as they give me camel foot look Anyone wearing the perfect jeans for me?
I used to wear men's jeans and they fit around the waist wonderfully. Then one day a friend took a photo of me from behind and I looked like a bloke. So thank you but I need something with a bit more shape. men's jeans are good for housework and when you are very very skinny!
627s are nice too, I bought a pair last week in the sale for £37. I'm worried that this means they're being discontinued though as they are one of my favorite styles. The others I mentioned are a little higher on the waist.
I know mens' jeans aren't always flattering but I must say I've had compliments whilst wearing the Levis 751s and when I've disclosed that they are mens' jeans the response was "blimey, you wouldn't know it. They make you look very shapely." I am not skinny myself. I'm a bit of an apple shape though so although my hips are 40" there is not a massive waist to hip ratio. The Wrangler ones, I tried on the other day and they were a similar fit to the Levis with quite a bit of stretch which I would say lends itself rather well to the female form and made my backside look a lot better than it does in some women's jeans, which make me look like I have a flat arse. I have quite a 40s/50s feminine look and try to be glamorous, even in jeans. I am by no means a tomboy so I promise I'm not recommending anything that will make you look like a slob or a geezer.
Hello everyone, Looked at various jeans that time would allow JL didn't have my size in Levis 627s. Tried NYD jeans in size 16 they fit prefectly but I didn't want to pay £139 for a pair of jean I wasn't planning to wear for very long I AM NOT STAYING SIZE 16 THIS YEAR SO THERE!!!!!!!!!! I took my self off to NEXT and got this yippe at £30 and size 14 they were just the ticket. Going to treat my self to fab jeans when I lose this weight so will keep all the info for the future. Thanks Girls I got these in the end
