I need to tuck my mummy tum in whilst still looking a bit trendy and wearing jeans with trainers or baseball boots. Tried Next ones but they are frankly hideous. Can anyone recommend some? preferably not too expensive
I haven't got any at the moment but I did buy some New Look jeans and they were great Can't remember what they were called but they were highly praised on here and cost about £12.....high waisted, comfortable and cheap
I have four pairs of Per Una Roma bootcut jeans . None of them are as lovely as my old Levi 627's but they are cheap as chips and generous with the Lycra if you gain a few pounds. Sorry I fear I've gone beyond help tawdryhepburn...
Wellllll... I have also just bought a pair of "skinny boots" from M&S for about £15 and they are lovely, not per una, but standard range with a birthday voucher. Quite high-waisted. Buy a size down though as mine are starting to sag around the bum.
Levi's are all well and good if you've got the money. I usually wear Asda or Tesco as that's my budget. I spend a bit more on the M&S jeans and keep them for 'best' rather than scrabbling about on the floor with the kids.
I know Per Una gets slated here on Mumsnet - and to be honest I wouldn't wear most of their clothes - but I've always found the jeans to be a good fit.
