I'm asking the impossible but .... can anyone give me some everyday jeans suggestions please. I need to order online as won't be shopping for a few weeks and don't mind ordering from a few websites to try on.
Have been wearing Gap Real Straight but unless you have a 25" waist, they go up in 2s in even numbers and I'm now in-between sizes. 28" are okay on the waist but too baggy around top of legs/crotch. 26" uncomfortably tight.
Okay, so where can I try. Need around a 32/33" leg so as I can wear with flats, straight cut and mid-rise to hold in my tummy!!
Don't want to spend £££ as these are for everyday (think kids, dogs, hens, gardening etc) and I have a few pairs of 'good' jeans in my wardrobe for more special wear. Next trousers do not fit me in any shape or form - no idea why, they just don't. Top Shop not great either for that matter. Happy to spend up to around £60 I guess.
Hi Millie1, mind if I ask you a quick question, are the Gap real straight nice? Am coming to the realisation that my current jeans are deeply unfashionable, and these ones are currently massively reduced. Should I go for them? I'm 5'3" & of slim build. What sort of shoes do you wear them with?
Thanks for the reply Mille1, they arrived today & I really like them! Not a shape I would have considered before, so thanks for the tip. And a bargain at £15! They go really well with some smart flip flops I have/flat gold sandals I bought recently.
Hope you manage to find your jeans, sorry for the thread hijack!
