Lift, Slim & Shape jeans from Next- miracle on a hanger!!!

I went for the dreaded jeans buying excursion, and found them!!

I'm 40, 4 DC, 5'8"' 10st 10' and a size 12, with twin skin and significant CS overhang/ apron issues. I have a long body, shorter leg(31) proportions, and often(usually) look very wide arsed in jeans.

Not these ones. I was so amazed, I rang the bell in the changing room and got the member of staff to bring me anything else they had in the same cut. I bought the darker and lighter denim in slim fit.

The label says that they are "designed with a hidden support panel to hold in your tummy and clever seaming to uplift your bottom instantly".

I have, in the past, tried Not Your Daughter's Jeans, and was horrified with them- far too high waisted, and i felt like a senior in Florida about to go for a power walk.

The Next ones are quite high waisted, but not belly button high,and they really work. I changed into them the second I got home, and my 17 year old babysitter commented on how slim I looked.

If you have tummy issues, have a look.

I was going to post on the AIBU about giving up on jeans, but I didn't want this to get lost. I live in jeans, so this is brilliant!

lol at 'senior in Florida about to go power walking' grin. 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.

Vain? Moi?

They are fab. I've just bought 4 pairs. I'm a 10 but some skinny jeans make me feel like the back of a bus. These are great and comfortable. I'm now mid 40's and had enough of jeans that hurt!

auntpetunia Wed 17-Apr-13 21:42:27

oh they sound just like what I need, I've had 2 dc's by csection and now a hysterectomy 16 weeks ago, so have a significant overhang. And I've got a Next voucher from the people at work to spend.

£45 a pair

FreshLeticia Wed 17-Apr-13 21:48:21

did you get the ones with the two button waisband? just looking at them now

Atavistic Wed 17-Apr-13 22:15:20

Yeah, two button, and curvy seam over the bum

happyyonisleepyyoni Wed 17-Apr-13 22:55:37

I've got them too and they are great, haven't washed yet though. Generously sized!

Cherriesarelovely Wed 17-Apr-13 23:40:34

I will indeed look for those. I also love "Senior in Florida about to go for a power walk" presumably with a "fanny pack"!

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.

Well after reading this thread I've ordered the Next ones. I have 34" inside leg so wasn't sure whether to get long (33") or tall (35"). I've ordered both & will report back when they arrive.

middleagedspread Mon 22-Apr-13 17:26:37

They've arrived & I'm quite pleased with them. Got 10 Tall & they are a big tight but quite flattering to my flat/wide bum.

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!

Ooh i was looking at these online and may try some tomorrow now i have heard a 'rl' review.

I shall report back.

MadBusLady Thu 02-May-13 16:05:30

Oooh Atavistic you are my body double, even down to the long torso. Ordering now. Baaaaaaaah...

Whitecat Thu 02-May-13 16:26:42

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 grin
