The Perfect skinny jeans for those of us blessed with "athletic" legs

I tried on a pair of the newly launched Martha's but wasn't totally impressed with the fit. Found the denim a bit "slack" and they just didn't sit right.

I have now bought Miss Selfridge Super Skinny Jeans as an alternative. They are fab as they are really NOT super-skinny because I cannot begin to get my athletic legs into a pair of truly skinny jeans! IMO they are the same fit as Marthas - perhaps closer fit at the ankle. They also have a decent mid-rise on them so no muffin top or arse cleavage issues.

This is the link to the "ginger" version which I have (gorgeous colour) but they have a wider range of colours than this.

I've got a pair of Martha's on today. I think they're cutting of the circulation of my 'athletic' calves. Think getting them off later is going to be a battle.

That is good to know about the MissS jeans, I would never try on superskinny the name would put me off, I am petite though so wouldn't get the same range of colours, the review of these get a similar, i.e not considered skinny review.

They LOOK super skinny and v. low rise to me!

They do look very skinny on the website but really they aren't. Definitely same fit as the old Marthas but a better fit around the waist, imo. I have worn them all day without any need to rearrange the waist etc.

Tapsel the name would have put me off too only I saw them in store first and realised they weren't as scary as I would have thought!
