Please recommend me some jeans

I need new jeans. The ones I have are 7FAM which are great. However, I've lost a bit of weight so need to find some new ones. I don't want to spend too much as I don't have it. Around 50 quid, if possible. And straight-legged. And mid-rise.

Thanks :-)

Just to add, I am curvy, medium height and like darker-coloured jeans.

For straight legged, medium rise I don't think you can do better than 7 - So personally I'd not buy anything else until you can buy them.

Thanks PastPerfect. I'll take your advice and wait smile

i really like zara jeans, they fit me well, also check out tk maxx? i got some 7fam jeans in there

MalibuStacy Mon 29-Dec-14 14:11:29

I have never tried Zara, might take a look. We don't have TK Max here, unfortunately. Thanks.

Depending on size you can sometimes get 7's on the outnet

I got some Sasha jeans from John Lewis for £50 reduced from £100

Gap do nice Curvy Straight ones that you could get from an outlet while you save up for new Sevens

Sorry for the hijack, but I've just been on the 7FAM website and they do have a sale on.

Can anyone advice me about their sizing. I'm usually a 27 waist.

today I got some Levi straight leg demi curve from John Lewis 45 quid

The Levi website had several styles half price - I bought some straight leg demi curve last week reduced from £90 to £45. They had free delivery and free returns too so you can order several sizes with no hassle sending the ones that don't fit back.

Uniqlo aren't bad. I have some jeggings which cost £15 and they are great - I wear them as often as my J Brands!

The other option is to buy some sevens from the US, where they will be cheaper - for example ebay has quite a few pairs for sale and postage to the UK is more common.

Forgot to say, also check TK Maxx - I saw some very cheap designer jeans there last week (J brand for £25)

Bouncey Tue 30-Dec-14 22:45:38

TK maxx website I meant!

I swear by Topshop Jamies. Nice and stretchy, fairly high waist, don't lose their shape and thicker than the usual high street skinnies. Must have about 10 pairs!

Are the Top Shop Jamie's straight or skinny? Thanks.
