Anyone got any recommendations for Very Good Jeans please? dh has offered to buy me something and i think i'd like to get some decent jeans as having been pregnant twice over the last few years, my body hasn't been the same shape for more than a few months so i've not bought anything other than Dorothy Perkins or Top shop ones for years.
I'm kinda an hourglass shape: a size 10 in dresses but a good 12 in jeans as I 'have hips'. I hate low-rise ones as they just cut into my hips and look crap/feel uncomfortable.
I like straight leg/skinnyish but my thighs aren't suited to real skinny skinnies.
I'd suggest the new Curve ID by Levis. 3 different styles of curve, and if you go to a Levi shop they will measure you & fit you a bit like a bra fitting. Mine are great, apparently I'm a Demi-curve, normally I find jeans gape at the back but these ones don't.
I think you really need to try the levis on. I was measured as a bold curve but ended up buying a demi curve. Different colours and styles fitted differently and were also different in length (which was a bit surprising). I ended up buying these.
