Help me find some jeans please - 5'2, curvy size 10!
Some help would be really gratefully received. I don't have much time to spend hours trying on loads of pairs of jeans - but I really do need some new ones. I don't mind spending a bit to get some jeans that are really well fitting. My body shape seems to be the problem. I'm 5'2, size 10 and I love the look of skinny fit jeans, but most I can't seem to get over my (not huge, but muscly!) thighs. I'm short and curvy and just cant ever seem to find jeans that fit well. Oh yeah - they have to be comfy too! If not I just won't end up wearing them.
I have a friend who has just recently bought some Paige black skinny jeans and they look fab - but she's a completely different shape to me.
I am a similar shape and like paige hidden hills jeans - the straight ones rather than very skinny. Gap long and lean are good (but still straight rather than skinny) To be honest, the best fitting pair of skinny jeans I have are from New Look!
I was about to write a similar post -I'm 5'6" with big bum and thighs but small waist. I tend to live day to day in boden wide leg jeans but want something smarter so i can dress up a bit and feel glam. I bought the boden straight leg jeans which are ok but still gap round the waist and don't feel very special. Even at my height i find most jeans are too long for flat shoes. I might try to head for gap and try some on but it's not easy when you've got two toddlers in tow! i have half-heartedly looked at some jbrand and other posh jeans on the net but can't be ar**d to order them just to find out they probably don't fit! Does anyone know anything about those bespoke levis I've seen advertised?
Bugger. I mean thank you everyone for your helpful comments, but I've realised from your comments that I'm just going to have to go into a department store and actually try loads of them on <sulk> I need a magical fairy to just look at me and with her wand conjure up an amazing pair that fit perfectly. Jeans shopping = depression!
