Do they come up big like boyfriend jeans? Please

some of them do and some of them don't. There are some with no stretch - just 100% cotton, and they're sized much smaller than the ones with stretch. Hope that helps!

watching this with interest - as I am a short arse, sexy and boyfriend jeans seem to be oxymorons.

bishboschone Wed 22-May-13 18:17:59

That's just confused me even more faustinasmile

Sort of but not as big as the skinnies. I am usually a 10/12 in jeans, I have the boyfriend ones in a 10 but the skinnies in an 8.

oh sorry bish! They're tighter at the ankle and at the waist than regular boyfriend jeans I'd say. Gap sizing is all over the place though. The 100% ones come up smaller than the same style with stretch denim. Is that a bit less confusing?

I've got them in my usual size and find they come up quite big - fitted, but not tight.

But they are amazingly flattering. I LOVE them.

I thought they were awful. They came up HUGE and the thighs were at least twice as wide as my thighs. They made me look like the side of a house, even in a size 10.

I tried on next relaxed skinnier today and they were hideous on me. I may have to actually go to a shop I think .

I think SchoolGateStyle reviewed these a couple months ago and sized down.

SwedishEdith Thu 23-May-13 20:05:25

You'll need to try them on. I fit neither a 28 or a 26 in Gap. The boyfriend jeans look really unflattering though

AmberNectarine Thu 23-May-13 22:14:24

Yes massive. I foolishly bought a 28 as that's what I wear in Topshop. Of course Gap is not Topshop so they have been worn once!

I've got some of the stretchy ones in a UK12.

I've not been a size 12 for years grin
Definitely size down in the stretchy ones.

Nehru Thu 23-May-13 22:40:55

Made me look like a tramp

Nehru Thu 23-May-13 22:41:38

I just don't think it's a flattering look for fat or thin thighs

SorrelForbes Thu 23-May-13 22:43:01

I really like them but I am quite chunky of thigh! I'm a size 10/12 and have a 28 in these and a 26 and a 28 in the High Rise Skinnies.

ChablisLover Thu 23-May-13 22:43:35

I sized down too massively

Love gap it's the only shop I can say I fit size 8 trousers!

I'm a 10/12 on the bottom and ordered a us4! And they fit good. Mine have no stretch either so even more impressed at their vanity sizinggrin

Nehru Fri 24-May-13 06:58:52

But. US 4 is a size 8. No mystery there.

ChablisLover Sat 25-May-13 21:39:26

I know that but usually in gap I'm a 6 but last few times have had to buy a 4. And I haven't lost any weight at all.

Nearly back to when I was 18 and was a gap size 2 - pre kids and pre a love of food and wine. grin

what would one wear with boyfriend jeans?

have been a devotee of super skinnies and nothing else for about 8 years and fancy a change.....
