Jeans - 12s too baggy - going for a 10. Wish me luck!

I've been a size 12 on bottom half for as long as I can remember however now they feel baggy and droopy. I recently bought myself a pair of size 12 jeans from Next and they feel fine when I first put them on but within an hour I look like a bloody gangster with them hanging off my hips, crotch near my knees grin

I've never been able to fit into a size 10 though but have just ordered a pair for curiosity sake. I'll be gutted when I can't fasten them but wish me luck anyway!

(is there much of a difference between a 10 and a 12? anyone else inbetween sizes?)

I'm in the same position, Next 12 black work trousers hanging off me so I've returned and reordered a 10. I have never been a 10, especially across my hips but we'll wait and see. If anything I'm a perfect size 11.

Varies for me according to brand, but I am usually a 12 and get into Gap size 10 Real Straight jeans, they are a good fit. a bit more pricy than Next I think (about £45/ 50?) but if you sign up to their emails online you get a 15% off voucher.

Let me know how your size 10s go. I should receive mine tomorrow.

I know asda started doing size 11s, 13s etc but stopped for some reason, can't have been much demand for them.

Will do, mine are due tomorrow as well. I didn't know Asda had done that, missed it completely. sad

Mango do size 11/13 etc too - I bought a pair of size 11 jeans from them and they are the best fit I have ever encountered.
