Low rise jeans/trousers! Help me please!

Please help me find low rise jeans or trousers. I am 5'6" and a size 8 with little bum to speak of. Mid rise sit too high on me, and make me too self conscious of my tummy (the mess left over after a twin pregnancy). Because of my little bum I also need little material in that area otherwise they just sag (I know - I shouldn't really complain).

I only feel comfortable in low rise, but I find them almost impossible to find. Budget not an issue.

Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance.

Seven jeans are always too low rise for me so they might be worth a look for you. Mango jeans are also very low.

I love low slung jeans and find them the most flattering for my shape - 8/10 with wide hips and flat stomach.

My faves are Diesel - Skinzee Low for superskinnies and Grupee are my ultimate skinny jean (not very skinny, a cross between straight and skinny really) Both are available in loads of washes on the Diesel website, there are other low slung styles too probably worth a look WAIST&sortRule=Ranking&agerange=Adult&page=1&productsPerPage=10¯oMarchio=125 here filtered by low waist

TK Maxx sometimes have Diesel jeans in store or online so worth a look there - I got some past season distressed Grupees for £30, original price was £225 shock

Quite a few people have raved about these Paige Skylines, they were too low rise for me.

Thanks for all your suggestions. Can't wait to get to the shops now to try them on!

Paige Skylines are mid-rise. I suit low rise as I'm very short in the rise and the Skylines are a little too long in the rise to be flattering.

Diesel, Replay and G-Star are all very low rise.

The Skylines have a 7.5" rise, that's definitely on the low side in my book!

Paige themselves describe them as a mid-rise jean! They are great jeans and I like the pair I've got, but low-rise they aren't.

They are if you're 5'9.

I'm 5'10 and 33" of leg. They're not low-rise which is what the OP was after.

I'm roughly the same size as you- I wear 7 for all mankind. Low rise without showing your arse when you bend over. Top shop used to do a nice low rise straight leg called Martha but think it disappeared

I've got some CK jeans that are so low you can almost see my caesarean scar. Im going shopping tomorrow for some mid rise jeans as I'm so sick of my arse hanging out when I sit down

^ SFAM is a good option especially if you have a less than generous bum.

You can also find them cheaply on eBay once you know your size.
