Poor Johnny, he just can't win

Having had to listen to complaints from us for years about mumsy styles and fun prints, Johnny really upped his game this season I think, there are lots of things I would be happy to wear and I haven't said that about Boden ever for a long time.

But it seems there is a backlash grin

If Helena was modelling a throng and cutaway bra I could understand the "she's too sultry and sexy" POV but she in a freakin patterned knee length skirt and cardi FFS.

I didn't even know it was Helena C- so it was all wasted on me.

She's just an okay-looking woman in a Boden outfit.

I wish I was as ok looking as Helena sad

Yes, like her and like the stuff more now.

I have a few bits and pieces < nothing spotty though! > and their jeans are fantastic. I'm short at 5 ft 3 and a bit and quite slim and they always fit perfectly.

shine I am also 5'3 and quite slim (or will be hopefully when no longer pregnant). which are the ones that fit you? also, I have a slim waist but ample bottom and thighs - how generous are the jeans on the thighs/bottom? thanks!

They are not generous on the bottom and thighs particularly! I wear the bootcut ones from Boden < usually skinny or slim fit /straight leg everywhere else > and they are just a great fit. There is not much stretch in them so the fit is the same in the evening as it is when you first put them on - which is good as i hate hauling up my jeans all day!

I'm a size 8/10 and wear a 10 in Boden. I don't have a big bottom or thighs but I do have a fat tummy and they manage to go over that ok!

Slinky shiney - you should look at the johnnie b stuff too - they're jeans are good.

Ah sounds like you're a different shape to me shiny! I have never had to haul up jeans, my bum keeps them well in place grin thanks for the info!
