Anyone find great skinny jeans for slim legs and big Butt and tummy.help.
Is there such a thing as a pair of black skinny jeans. . Or straight leg maybe at a push. . .That are high waisted, doesn't go baggy at the knees, slimming but comfortable enough to at least breathe, so some stretch in them.
I am size 14. . . . Size 12 until last year. . And now14 and can't seem to get back to 12 no matter what I try. I am very self conscious. .. and yes I know 14 is not big really. . But I am not comfortable in my own skin.
So!!!!! I am living in jeans and blazers for nights out as I have slim legs. . I carry my weight on my butt and tummy so blazers hide a lot. . , I am 5 ft 6 approx if that matters
Top Shop and villa and Vera moda don't work for me. . Or not the ones I tried.. Anyone similar shape and find any life saver jeans.
Oh, I was going to suggest Vera Moda ones as I love mine and am pretty substantial of hip and bottom! Topshop ones don't work for me. I like M & S jeggings on a thin day but they can be pretty tight around the tummy after a big lunch....
It's a pain isn't it frantastic. I have the shred dvd here somewhere. . . God the thought of it. . . and have ordered a juicer. So fed up of my belly and arse. Though as usual I am thinking. . Monday. . I will start again on Monday
Thanks meg. . Will try d p too.
Reading online that marks and sparks 5 pocket jeggings are great for muffin top problems and slimming in general. Will check them out too
How about next high waist skinnies? I have some black ones I love and would seem to tick all your boxes. there's another thread waxing lyrical about next jeans just up a bit! Just the cheap ones, I mean, £28 ish, not the ones that lift everything and make the tea that cost about £45.
I agree with Meg, Dorothy Perkins jeans are great and jeggings are super comfy too. Sounds like you have an Apple body shape. Light denim or bright coloured jeans will look fab on you and highlight your slim legs My blog features loads of fashionable clothes, including jeans, for your specific shape.

Gok skinny jeans at sainsburys are the best I've had. 28 pound and a bargain if you got them at a 25% off event. Try them on though because I am usually a 14 but because of the stretch my 14s are bigger than I thought and when I get more i reckon a 12 might be right.
