Inspired by Rempy, I went to a Levi's store and was very well looked after - they measured me and let me try in loads and I have a demi-curve slim and a demi-curve skinny. It was really nice to have someone look after me properly.
I've just brought a pair of straight leg dark blue jeans from M&S that are great. They are doing different body shape jeans now - mine are Marilyns ie curvy, bigger in hips but slimmer in waist. Best fit I've had in a while <<disclaimer I do not spend a lot on jeans these last few years>>
After a few wears they haven't lost too much shape - deep joy. I got them with 20% off so they were only TWENTY pounds!!!
I like Esprit jeans (free delivery free returns) as many styles come in waist/leg measurements, they do many different styles and explain what the fit is on each one, together with a chart to show if they tens to fit as per the size or larger/smaller.
I'd avoid full boot cuts at the minute because a straight leg or skinny is more fashionable and yes I know I have big hips too but there gets to a stage when it looks as if you are just trying to hide them rather than looking stylish.
