My problem with jeans is getting my calf muscles in the leg! I have very muscly calf muscles from a lifetime of sport (unfortunately thighs are wobbly). I 'm a 12/14 and just can not get my legs into skinny jeans. Can just about do Next slim leg, but don't really like any of the indigo ones they have at the moment.

Anyone recommend any stretchy straight/slim jeans? I've also got some Gap Real Straight, but too tight on the calf to move properly in

Have you tried Next relaxed skinnies? I struggle with true skinnies but get on well with these

Next Relaxed Skinny
Zara Woman straight leg (deep luscious indigo - mine haven't faded at all in 9 months)
Citizens of Humanity "Ada" jeans
Topshop Marthas

I have tried Next relaxed skinnies - too tight on calf.
Nothing in Zara has ever fitted me.
Citizens of Humanity a bit out of my price range
I'll have a look at the TopShop Marthas. I hav never bought anything from TS, but will brave the skinny young assistants.

I've never got Zara trousers to fit before but these are great.

I bought the CoH jeans in TKMaxx for £40 wink

I bought some sainsburys straight legs last week, only £12 as they had 25% off. These are generous in the calf area....

Have you tried the Eden skinny jeans/ jeggings from Dorothy Perkins? Or do you want them more full on denim? Theyre the only ones i cab get my chunky calves into.

New Look skinnies are surprisingly roomy in the calf, they fit me and I have truly huge calf muscles!

Ooh, that sounds promising Ujjayi. I'll have a look Little; want something a bit more substantial than jeggings Fandango, but will bear them in mind.
