Need a new pair of jeans...

Need some new jeans after having a baby. But which style. I normally go for bootcut but after Tunicgate I wonder if I shouldn't try something else. Am somewhere between a 14 & 16, 5ft 0 with a definite waist (IMO) and wide hips. What would anyone recommend?

I love high waisted jeans - I had my 4th baby 4 months ago and the high waist nicely hides the post-baby-belly wink
I tend to wear skinnies with Uggs, frowned upon I know but I need the warmth! Then I wear layers on top suitable for breast feeding.

I got some really flattering high waisted slim leg jeans from Next, might be a good transition if you're used to bootcut but want a skinnier fit on the leg. They're called something ridiculous like the sexy jean.

Top Shop Martha's have been reinvented - they are straight leg still but are higher cut on the waist and shaped to fit hips. Get loads of compliments when I wear mine (amongst hip 18-20 year olds.....I am 41)
