Used to spend loads on jeans, reasoning that they were the item I wore most, but now that I have children I am poor, plus my arse keeps changing size.
Anyway, have a birthday coming up, so wanted to get a few pairs of mid-range jeans to keep me going. I have a few criteria, but if anyone can be bothered to bear with me, I would really appreciate some suggestions:
Not too flimsy denim - I need the thigh-corset effect Not so low rise I look like an overweight Britney Spears, not so high rise that I get the long bottom effect.
Has anyone tried the Levi's I'd jeans? Anything on the high street people would recommend?
I've got a pair of Levi Curve and I really like them
To be honest, I don't have any curves, and I didn't really read the label properly (got v excited about a pair of Levi skinnies in my size in TK Maxx for a tenner and grabbed them) so they fit more like a loser fit pair of boyfriend jeans.
But they still fit really well and don't give me a builders bum when I bend over
I also have Levi curve ID and think they're fantastic. The way the pockets are sewn on makes my (v substantial) bum look significantly smaller; there is zero gape around the waist, which for me is unheard of; no need to wear a belt to hold them up... They are the best!
