Lift, Slim & Shape jeans from Next- miracle on a hanger!!!
lol at 'senior in Florida about to go power walking' . I saw those jeans in Next the other day - I generally don't bother with Next and have heard the jeans go baggy quickly but it may be worth a try! I definately have tummy issues and also I-have-no-waist issues...
Well, to be fair, I've never bought jeans from Next before- so I'll have to report back on how they wear. They certainly feel very soft and comfy ( a bad thing, I think), but I'm going to a reunion at the weekend, and I've had the most babies of every one there, and I was a size 16 the last time I saw most of them, so these jeans are doing exactly what I need, right now.
The Asda shape jeans are also quite good. They are a straight leg so a bit baggier at the bottom than I'm used to, but they fit well and the material seems to keep its shape well. £18 so a bargain! Will also have a wee look at the next ones.
I bought a pair of these recently - size 16, bootcut - and they were the oddest fitting trousers I have ever put on! They are essentially skinny jeans with a weird little kicky flare at the bottom!! Can't say I was very impressed, as they stretched out of size really quickly and the "hidden panel" is just a bit of jersey attached to the waistband...back to Boden for me...hurrumph...
Just wanted to say thank you to the OP as I bought the NExt Lift, Slim & Shape skinny jeans in the grey after reading this and they are fab. I am normally a size 10 in Next jeans, 10-12 in real life, but the 8 fitted as there is some 'give' in them. They Long really is long which is just what I was after. Also the grey ones are proper cotton with a little stretch and other colours were the thinner poly/cotton mix. Very happy!
I've had some for ages. I had to let the hem down after the first wash but that's because I got regular when there was no long in store. They've maintained shape really well and don't have an expando waistband so I am not continually hoiking them up. Happy
