Boyfriend jeans

I've been looking for a pair that fit and I'm having no luck at all. I've tried all my usual shops and all my usual sizes but they are all too tight on the leg. Usual suspects in terms of stores are New Look, DP, Primark, Top Shop and River Island. I've even gone up by two sizes in some places but they still don't fit. Anyone have any ideas about where I can find a loose legged pair. Don't want to spend too much but will pay extra for the right fit.

Gap? They call theirs 'sexy bofriend' which makes me cringe but the cut is quite good. I've often bought them in the sale, or they regularly dish out VIP discount codes too.

Same problem here. A lot seem to have too much fabric at the top. Have yet to try h and m ones though they seem to have a few online. Keeping an eye out.

these are loose and pretty generous on waist size too.

I bought a pair at the weekend from Next, I'm bigger of thigh and bum and these fit really well and were relatively cheap. I'm losing weight and my old jeans were falling off me, I don't expect to be in these for too long so didnt need brilliant quality, they had a variety of styles in boyfriend cut too.

Thanks for the suggestions, will go and have a look around and a try on, see what I can find.

i have some levi ones from asos, were a little expensive though for what they are

the gap ones come up really short on me

I have an issue with these jeans. I'm a size 8 and even the 10's are somewhat skinny fit. Why call them bloody BF jeans if they're just sloppy skinnies? The best thing to do is go to Primark and buy a pair of mens jeans - better made and will actually fit like boyfriend jeans ought to, esp if you go a size up.

And why are they always ripped and pale blue?
Why not indigo and unripped FGS?

I'm nowhere near a size 8 envy but even in my usual size 18 nothing fitted on the leg. This is in shops where the SKINNY jeans fit me. I am bitterly disappointed that jeans called 'relaxed' boyfriend don't fit on the leg if the same brands skinnies do.

I only ever wear boyfriend jeans and Christ they're getting tough to find! Next is still the only place i can find that supplies a few options style wise, and they have nice wide straight legs.

I think you might find these are more like regular boyfriend jeans, than the newer style that Gap do. Also they're on sale!
