M&S jeggings ...actually rather good or am I deluded?

Didn't really know what jeggings were until yesterday- have bought the black ones.
Like a slightly 'smoother'skinny jean and suprisingly flattering.
May return and buy the navy too.

Yes, I have the black & the dark denim - I think they're great!

I don't know why they're called jeggings though.

I have the mid denim pair and just bought a cord pair in plum. Cord is very fine needle cord, almost velvet. They're lovely and I feel a little bit goth in them.

They are great, their maternity ones are good too

FayeKinitt Sun 21-Oct-12 15:24:36

I have these ones in the light indigo colour. They are fab.

They look good. Something to ease a non jean wearing person into?
I'm looking to be more casual on a weekend as feeling silly watching my boys play football and rugby in dresses tights and boots.
What would you wear with jeggings? I'm a 12/14 large boobs so have to be careful with the shape and fit of tops.

cazza40 Sun 21-Oct-12 18:51:52

Have 2 pairs one in black the other indigo - think they are great

daimbardiva Sun 21-Oct-12 19:04:58

Yes, I love these, but agree they're not actually jeggings, rather skinny jeans with a lot of stretch in them. Err to the smaller size though, as they do stretch on wearing.

Frontpaw Sun 21-Oct-12 19:10:07

They are good - although not actually 'jeggings' (which are horrible leggings that look a bit like jeans). They are well fitted slim jeans/cords with flies and pockets AND A WAIST WHERE THE WAIST ORTA BE!!!!! No bloody hipsters falling off your arse and flashing your builders crack

I think they are brilliant. Bought my first pair just before Easter and have been recommending them on here ever since!

Daisy - I'm a size 12 and 32E. I wear mine in the following ways:

with a fitted top to just below my tummy and a slightly longer length sleeveless cardigan over, with ballet flats or heeled ankle boots;

with a bum length fitted top and a biker jacket;

with a baggyish t-shirt and then an open denim shirt or biker jacket over;

with a silk slash neck top that is just below bum length and a belt;

with a just below tummy length jumper and a slightly longer vest peeping out underneath;

with a longer length slouchy-ish jumper that is scoop necked and not too baggy over the boobs.

No idea if that's any use to you!

I've only tried the maternity ones - they're fab.

JudeFawley Sun 21-Oct-12 20:01:54

I have 4 pairs, dark red, lightish brown, black and grey.

I am a 12 in most things, but have the jeggings in a 10. They look good with ankle boots or turned up a bit with low rise Converse.

They are like skinny jeans, and really comfortable. Every time I wear them (well, almost) someone asks me if I have lost weight, so I reckon they must be flattering.

goinnowhere Sun 21-Oct-12 20:23:54

Not deluded at all. They are excellent. And no hoicking!

busyboysmum Sun 21-Oct-12 20:34:36

I love mine - they are petrol blue and got a pair of mustard in the sale for £12. So comfy and flattering - I have to wear mine with a belt though as they are loser round the waist now so I would also recommend sizing down.

bigpants103 Sun 21-Oct-12 20:40:22

Brill jeans and a bargin too. I have five different colours. High waisted so no muffin top, love them

BinAndScones Mon 22-Oct-12 08:43:25

I have this type as I can never find jeans that fit my waist and thighs simultaneously and I hate wearing a belt.
The elastic waist is not an attractive feature to look at I grant you but trust me it gives you a lovely smooth silouette and once its covered by you top you wouldn't know.
They are also very comfy to wear and come in different lengths.
The plum ones are gorge

WhoKnowsWhereTheTimeGoes Mon 22-Oct-12 08:48:38

I love mine too, best skinny jeans I have had.

MissPerception Mon 22-Oct-12 09:13:06

I'd like to know the definition of a jegging too. I bought a pair of M & S ones and then found they were called jeggings. (That put me off). They are skinny, stretchy jeans. I got a better pair at GAP tbh.

teta Mon 22-Oct-12 11:15:44

I have the same ones as Bins and Scones in dark indigo and black.I love mine and they are very flattering.The elasticated waist means that there are no bulge lines underneath tops.I wear mine with t shirts layered over long bottom covering vest tops.Matalan and Hush do these long vests.M&S also do some apparently.I have just ordered the grey/purple combination to try out the length and to match up with a grey Wrap Eliza top that is a little too short.

Miss the cord skinnies are called 'flat fronted jeggings' which they are most definitely not, unless a button and zip fly has changed meaning.
