Skinny cords or jeans

I am looking for some skinny cords or jeans however I don't want low rise. I have a boyish figure, 10 or 12. I don't get on with the Marks and Sparks ones (too baggy on my knees) or the Next ones (found them a little too low rise and I appeared to be size 11 in there, which doesn't exist lol)

Can you help?

I LOVE my Dorothy Perkins super skinny jeans. I would say I'm an 11 bottom as 10s can be v hit and miss depending on where I shop. They aren't low rise - I can sit on the floor without a flash of 'mum bum'. I'd say they sit about 2 inches max below my tummy button.

I'd love some skinny cords too! smile

I bought a gorgeous pair of red skinny cords from New Look last week.

A few weeks ago I got some Navy ones in Matalan, they had other colours too.

I noticed on the Tesco website last night they have cord jeggings for about £12 a pair IIRC. I am wondering about giving those a try.

i ordered the gap ones, which were a bit weird so i send them back, but they are in the sale now. might be worth trying some on in the shop if you have one?

Uniqlo ones look really nice

I have just bought a pair of Topshop Jamies, they are very comfy and have a nice high waist.

I forgot about superskinnys from Dottyp's, thanks Whenisit.

I have tried the H&M Logg cords but they were very low cut and didn't fit me well.

I also found the New Look cords a strange fit, however their coloured skinnies are a fab fit.

I shall have to take a look at GAP and Topshop also Tesco and Matalan.

Thank you
