NYd - not your daughters jeans, John lewis sells them, the photos online are rubbish a photo of me would be better than their model. I'm apple shaped and similar size, you need to down size, so comfy. I have the ones they label as leggings/jeggings, they are a straight cut jean, very flattering either tucked in to boots or worn with converse, pumps, even heeled ankle boots. They have washed up very well, I wash them on a 30 with powder for coloureds. Other jeans I always want to take off as soon as i get home but not these.
Do you specifically want tummy control or just higher waisted, keeping your tummy in check?
Topshop Martha's are a good mid-rise which are flattering. Boden straight leg jeans are also mid-rise and worth a look (there is a thread on here with discount codes). Also MiH Paris jeans - they are usually expensive but I found a pair in TK Maxx for £24.
I got a fantastic pair of dark blue straight legged jean with a highish waist (no builders bum on bending) from Sainsbury's for £12 or £14 the other week. (And I must really like them as this is the second thread I've recommened them on and I don't usually have much to say on S&B )
Try Asda, I got a great pair of straight leg dark indigo ones from there. Called The Great Bum and Tum Straight Jeans and only £18. High rise and although they say straight leg I think it's a bit of a slim bootcut. Be worth going down a size and wearing around the house for a few hours to losen them up as mine are now a bit big despite fitting initially.
Its worth trying Debenhams too, Rocha John Rocha have some tummy control jeans that are a reasonable price (£30-40) and were a great fit when I tried. I think they're along the same lines as NYDJ but for a way lower price tag. I was jeans shopping last week and think I must have tried on just about every pair on the high street!
