Im on the lookout for a new pair of COMFY skinny jeans. Im a size 10-12 and have a newborn and 2 year old, so spend a lot of time on the floor playing. I have found some skinny jeans don't have enough Lycra round the knees and pinch / feel like they're cutting off circulation when I kneel in them. Also some pairs I've had done come up high enough and keep showing muffin top and love handles. My normal sources would be topshop, Zara etc but I'd be happy to spend up to £100 on lee or Levi for a great fit. Any tips would be most welcome!
I am not a Boden kinda girl. But I just bought a pair of their skinnies after a recommendation and am pretty impressed. What I like in particular is that they are high rise, not high waisted. So they contain the muffin top without the 70s high waisted look. I tried the gap high waisted and I truly looked like a granny.
Thanks everyone, this has really helped! Decided to get a pair of primary ones to fit my current just-gave-birth size, and then splash out on some more spenny jeans when I am back in shape. Thanks again.
