I'm so fed up. Have been ill over the last couple of years and have put weight on. I hope this is a temporary thing but in the meantime I really need a pair or two of well fitting jeans. I tried on a size 20 pair in M&S yesterday and could have cried. They fitted, but not in a good way! On the other hand I have a pair of grey bootcuts size 18 from Debenhams last year which still fit.
Just wanted to pop back and say a big thank you to all who replied to my OP. After lots of trying on I ended up with John Rocha jeans from Debenhams which fit in a way jeans have not fitted me in a long time. They are lovely and make me feel so much better
