i have just worn a hole through the knee of my second pair of jeans this week crawling round and changing nappies and need a new pair. i have size 12 skinny jeans from tesco and from next, they sag off my waist, hang off my flat bum but fit tigt around my hips. am i a lost cause? does anyone else rip holes through the knees regulalrly?
I haven't got them yet but my jeans always gape hugely at the back. Ironic as everyone says I have a small bum. But I have a very long torso and my legs are actually quite short and small so my bum is actually in pretty good proportion to my legs but has a long back to curve into... so I need a bold curve... Does that make sense?
I have the same problem as you. My waist is 12 smaller than my hips. Levis Bold Curve are a great fit. But I found an even better pair in TK Maxx - SaltWorks jeans. They sit just below my waist, have some stretch in them and they fit perfectly. What's more they only cost me £16!
When DD was little I just used to wear jogging bottoms in the house - far more comfortable for crawling around in.
ooh thanks, cant afford levis but will try asda and tkmax, cant wear joggers cos im out on the school run and then baby groups so im in and out all day and feel slightly better in jeans and a half decent top.
roma fit from per una in M&S - their pisa fit tend to be low slung but the roma ones fit nicely
or sainsburys - I haven't ever managed to find trousers to fit me in Tesco but the sainsburys jeans and cords fit really well. The cords in winter - especially their £18 rather than £12 are really thick stretchy cord and both fit and wear really well, better than others that cost more than double the price. I just wish you could order them online. Or that I spotted the notice to say they had 25% off clothes before the last afternoon of the offer by which time all my size had gone They have jeans in all the time but the nice thick cords (which they don't have in as much as the cheaper ones) have just come in...
I wear Gap Long and Lean which work well for me (mostly because they sit well below the waist so I only have to worry about my arse). More expensive than the supermarkets though - I reckon on paying 30 quid-ish in the outlet mall or by using one of their 30% off vouchers.
