Where do the short of stature wobbly tummy people purchase jeans?
miche, loads of people have recommended them, but even my local levi store didn't have and in a definite size 12 waist, and 27"/28" leg , I really don't want to have to spend that much as I wear them hard, but considered it as I was getting desperate.
I recently got a pair of Scarlett jeans in Oasis after they were raved about on another site. They are ok, I find myself going to them regularly for everyday use. I don't think I look FANTASTIC in them the way I do with a pair of 7 for all mankind jeans - but I can't bend down in them!
Topshop are my everyday jeans (I am 5ft, size 12 in the petite, 30 inch leg seems too big for me in 12, in the waist and leg), the Martha jeans are good, there are none online just now, but they are straight leg, so I think they flatter everyone.
Also worth a look in River Island, but again their short is too long for me, so I have to wear with heels, you have to search to find the right pair... I am considering paying more because I have struggled to find good jeans lately.
I used to really like New Look, but it has been a while since I bought any from there, they did at least fit perfectly in length and were very cheap.
It's not just me then , NEVER had this much hassle. Is it me or have most stores short length / petite length got about 3" longer , Levi only seem to expect really skinny short people they only had short lengths in the size 6 and 8's.
Well, my Sainsbury's Tu jeans in "short" are trailing along the floor - I've neverhad this problem before (they are only for dog walking and housework, but they would be quite nice if the bottom of the legs wasn't soaked through from wet grass)
I have heard on here(s&b) that Martha jeans were getting redesigned, Just hope that doesn't mean they are still going to do them in petite. Topshop do do 28 and 26 inch leg jeans but they are very limited styles.
