They come just to the navel so high waist. I am really happy with them. Just about to wear them on a plane for 7 hours so that's how confident I am that they will be comfortable (and stylish - I dress up for plane rides!).
Have a lovely holiday kplondon - hope it's a holiday! Yep, high waisted, lovely dark colour, straight legged but a teeny bit wider at the bottom so sit on the feet nicely. I'd also say generously sized. They looked very narrow before I put them on but luckily are very stretchy. That's probably because it's cheap denim. I prefer them to my Gap super skinnies, And I had to order online
thank you thank you - was just having a meander through the S&B board hoping for some cheap ideas to refresh wardrobe (baby only 8 weeks so carrying more weight than I would like and hope to lose it so don't want to spend a fortune on clothes I intend to slim out of). Am going to order some right now!
I don't think the stores are selling them yet, our local Asda is huge and they were nowhere to be seen. How tall are you gettingolder? I'm 5'5 and have the standard length but I had to wear a 1" heel to stop them dragging on the floor. Twolittlemonkeys - my mum is also 5' nothing so is used to having to cut off a few inches off trouser legs. Which is what she is going to do but I'm surprised Asda didn't think to do a short leg. p&p makes them £20.45 iirc - a bargain! And take about 3 working days to arrive - take note H&M
Thank you MaryJane my local store had some. I had to ask and the sales lady went and got a pair. She said they had almost all sold without being put out yet! I would have preferred to try on the next size up ( all gone) so hoping they do not shrink. I like the fit - not too high - I personally cannot wear low cut jeans. I will need to shorten - but am used to that and they are straightlegs.
I'm only 5' 4" MaryJane, but I've got long legs and short body. I think I'll try standard though if you think they are fairly long - nothing to lose because I can take them back if they don't fit. My local Asda is huge but they haven't got any in.
They are definitely long in the leg but I do the cheat's hem (fold them under themselves) and because they are slim in the leg, they don't fall down. Hey - at least there's no sewing! And they do stretch out quite a lot.
