Slim or skinny fit Jeans that sit on your waist?

Following baby no 2 I am now the proud owner of a lovely flabby belly. As much as I have aspirations to do 3 hours of Pilates every evening and lose the tum I don't see it happening any time soon.

I am sick of said belly hanging over my jeans. Any suggestions for shops that sell slim fit jeans that will actually sit on my waist and not just above my pubes?!?

I went jeans shopping the other night and tried on 13 pairs in many shops.
I came away with these
They have a similar rise to the M&S jeggings (come just about up to my belly button), but are super-stretchy, which means a) they are reeeeeeally comfy and b) they don't go baggy and saggy at the knees and c) they fit over my monster calves (unlike the Gap Always Skinnies - which are also too low a rise for my belly)

M&S 5 pocket jeggings. Comfy and not low cut plus cheap

Most M & S Per Una straight or slim leg are high waist.

These are about the only thing I get from Per Una as they haven't managed to add a frill, swatch or fringe to them though you may have to ditch the belt smile

Do the next ones stretch, or go baggy after a few hours?

Yes I'll second Jamie's, I have a couple of pairs and like the fit.

Asda. I've got two pairs of high waisted skinnies from them , they are great,

Topshop Jamie Jeans, skinny and mid rise (just under my navel). Stretchy without being shapeless and come in some nice colours smile

Next high waist skinny!! Made for reining in those tums! Have a pair of a-wear ones - not nearly as industrially strengthened

Next high waist, Topshop Kristen, and New Look do some fantastic high waisted, but not in a wide range of colours unfortunately...

Superdry high waisted rockabillys. They don't gape at your back end either. Size down though, even if you try them on and think they are tight. They stretch a bit.

Another vote for the Kirstens in Top Shop. I'm a size 12 and their 28 inch waist fits and holds in my waist.

Asda super skinny are really comfy and high enough to cover belly button

HM Slim leg with regular rise are brilliant. I have 4 of them.

Dorothy Perkins Baileys are bottom and tummy covering, without being too high rise - and very reasonable!

New look do ones that sit on the waist.

I just bought some from gap in the sale for £13.99 that sit on the waist and very flattering.

Primark and Gap jeans sit at my waist..

Another vote for Topshop Kristens.

I have been pretty impressed with Next slim high waist.

Miss selfridge skinny high waist are fab!

myalias Thu 24-Jan-13 15:04:31

Next high waist skinny jeans are very comfortable and suck everything in

AmberNectarine Thu 24-Jan-13 15:02:46

My Goldsign Virtuals sit on my waist perfectly and are so comfy I forget I'm wearing them. Bit £££ though.

M&S £12.50 jeans. Amazingly good for the price and plenty of height to tuck your flabby belly into. Strongly recommended.

2nd vote for Next high waist skinnies, I love them! think even in the shop they're only about 26 quid and they wash ever so well!

Madlizzy Thu 24-Jan-13 15:00:19

Another one for Next here. smile

Marks and Spencer Jeggings are skinnies that come up to your waist and contain the mummy muffin top nicely!
