Any size 8 regulars out there who have sucessfully squeezed into the JB range? I can't seem to be able to work it out.

I bought JohnnieB boyfriend jeans last year - I ordered the 30 and the 32 waist, and kept the 32s. Obs, boyfriend jeans are a bit roomy by style, but these ones fit, in a boyfriend kind of way. I also have a couple of tops and found the largest size somewhat generous on me. I am a Boden size 8 and 5'4". I would give it a go.

Yes, you need to go a size up from your normal women's size jeans, mine were lovely. I had two tops too which came out normal size.

Thank you. I will give it a go. So much cheaper!

DD has these - she's 15. She's a very small 6, and we got the 24L and the 26L ones. We kept the 26 inch waist pair - they're a bit baggy but the length is about right. The 24 inch waist were perfect on the waist and hips - and her waist is 23 inches. Based on this, I'd say go up an inch or so from your actual waist and you'll be fine.

Quite tempted myself - wondering if having the same jeans as your 15 year old is allowed?!

I'm a 30/32 inch waist. I tried the skinny 30's and they are nothing like a GAP 30 inch more like a 32.
So I would size up if you are inbetween or even if not!
