Hi, can anyone help. I desperately need a flattering pair of jeans. I'm slim (UK 6-8) but petite with short legs. Here's my criteria!

*Dark blue / indigo
*skinny but not spray on
*high waisted (can't bear muffin top)
*thicker denim rather than thin
*don't stretch out at knees/bum over time and stay up (my current pair need pulling up every 5 mins and the crotch is half way down my thigh!)

Has anyone discovered a pair like this?

Levi Demi Curve skinnies.

I find the Levi demi and bold curve too low rise. They come up to well below my waist.

Next have a range called something like lift, shape and slim. They come in a petite range as well. I just bought these (same size as you) and they are super comfy and look good. I bought size 6 as they seem to fit ok.

I just got high waisted skinny jeans from next, itried thwir lift and slim but didnt think thye were any better than theor regular skinny jeans.

Anyway I got high waisted skinny jeans, £28 so I got two pairs, one dark blue and one black. I havehad this style before until I wore a hole in them, they fit greatand they dont fall down.

I got the petite, as I am 5 2 and they fit prefectly.

I had a thread on this the other day. Gap do a short cut that fit me perfectly and I am 5'2''.
They are made of proper denim too.

I'm tall with long legs and love h and ms skinny high rise jeans.

I wear 28/34 but they do shorter lengths. I'm a uk ten so I guess you would need a 26/30 or something.

They are fab smile

Sounds like you're describing my 1969 gap high rise skinnies. I am 5'2" and a 6. I have them in a size 25, and they're a bit spray on, certainly no wearing them on a fat day! in hindsight I would have got them in a 26.

River Island Lana jeans are what you want. They do a short length.

These Donna Ida ones are brilliant but expensive. They are still going strong after a couple of years though so worth the ££.

Size down if you get them.

Wow, lots of suggestions to check out, thank you ladies x

Fat Face Super Skinnies if they come in short sizes.

SorrelForbes Fri 21-Feb-14 23:18:13

Gap high rise skinnies in dark wash, petite. These are ankle length on me 5'4". Size down. I'm a 10/13 and wear a 27.

I find FatFace too low rise as well.

I third the Gap jeans I'm 5'3'' and size 8-10 and wear 24 in the ankle length and they're just the right length

Dorothy Perkins' Bailey skinny jeans - a total bargain and perfect! They can fade a bit, but at £20ish, who cares?!

High waisted, suck em in, dark, thick denim perfection smile
