I currently wear Tophop Leighs, I like the way they fit etc but I need quite a few new pairs and I've seen New Look do skinnies for £20ish. This is almost half the price of TS.

Anyone know how they compare or can recommend another inexpensive brand?

New Look skinnies are great! They fit and wear really well. Definitely recommend.

Definitely agree with New Look skinnies

I like h&m and primary skinnies both cheap and great fit

I've tried a few cheap pairs and think it's a matter of what fits you.

I had a gorgeous pair of H&M ones, about £20, seemed decent quality, proper thickness denim not the thin sort, and they still fitted well after a few wears, not just when fresh from the wash, if that makes sense. I use past tense because they are now in the loft as I'm too pregnant to wear them. Last winter H&M did lovely skinny cords, if you like that sort of thing.

I had several identical pairs of primark "superskinny" which are about £12 each, because they fit me better than almost any jeans I found until I tried the H&M ones. However the fabric feels quite thin. Topshop don't suit my shape. Don't think I've tried the New Look ones, but I have some of their maternity skinnies now and I bloody love the shape on the leg, in that they stay nice and tight from knee down.

Hated the Peacocks ones, they fitted OK up top but weren't "proper" skinnies in that they looked too loose on lower leg. I returned some Tesco ones- skinnies were more like straight legs, and Tesco's were huge, size 8 were more like a 12, with a high waist- quite mumsy.

Next are brilliant.

Primark - they do some called something like lift and shape, £12. Found the New Look ones to be good for holding shape.

Another vote for New Look skinnies but my top tip is to look for the ones that are 98% cotton and 2% elastane. They are few and far between but I picked up a pair of black ones in the sale today for £12. Well pleased.

I find the New Look ones awful. They are too low cut and sag at the knee. Top Shop are too high waisted, primark are ok but sizing can be funny. Best ones I've found are the M&S limited collection ones. They are about £35 so not what I'd call cheap but they are an amazing feat of engineering!!

Dorothy Perkins are great

I love the Primark £7 skinny jeans and they don't seem to go baggy.

New look Super Skinnys are fab, especially if you have slim legs I also wear topshop Leigh jeans and I find both these brands fit me perfectly!

M&s ones are very flattering.

I had a bright blue pair from asda and they were great! No one would ever know.

Next skinnies can be a bit Max Wall.

New Look ones look good but uncomfortable as very low rise.

I have to say that I have slim legs and the New Look super skinny jeans are big around the knee on me-I was really disappointed as I'd heard good things about them.


These are the ones I have. Ignore the odd photos of the ripped pair-they don't look anything like that!

M and S 5 pocket jeggings. I'm like a broken record on here banging on about them, £22 and the perfect skinnies, mid rise, properly tight and thick stretchy denim.

I've got those 5-pocket jeggings from M&S as well. Ok for about half an hour but then bag on the knee if you've got slim legs. Uniqlo ones were the same and very oddly sized. Tu were disappointing and DP bag too. I think I've tried every pair on the high street!!

New Look super skinnys are the only skinnys that don't stretch, sag and fall down on me.

I bought some Next relaxed skinnys, I sized down from an 8 to a 6. By the end of the day I could take them off without undoing them. Next day they were literally falling down. I can fit into a size 4 shock. I am not a size 4 or a 6, I am an 8, sometimes a 10!

I like Dorothy Perkins Eden jeggings, too, for comfort.

F & F Super Skinny Jeans
I got an 8 and they are great , don't lose shape or fit even after a day of nursery drop offs And being on my knees with a toddler .
Im usually a 10 but find F & F really big , could even have got away with a 6 I think ...

H&M. Have a pair that cost £19.99 and look great after a few wears. Don't lose their shape.
