Best slim/ skinny jeans for under £100

(24 Posts)

I am a reliable size 10 but post 3 children I have a very wobbly tummy. I think a higher rise might hide this. I also have no real arse to speak of and slim legs. Where can I find a pair of jeans that will flatter me and not break my bank balance please? I trekked round the shops for hours today but gave up in the end because it made me feel ragey thanks very much

my vote is for uniqlo

I like M&S skinny jeggings, they are high waisted, a really good fit and look like jeans! smile

wishingchair Sun 11-Jan-15 18:25:52

I like the next slim and shape (or lift and shape??) skinnies. Dark blue, come to just below belly button, and fit well. £45.

Wassat Sun 11-Jan-15 18:46:04

Excellent, thanks -I'll get googling. I'm going to have to do it online, I can't face another awful trudge round the shops smile

Vero moda wonder jeggings

High rise - holds it all in and keep shape well

WestYorkshireGirl Sun 11-Jan-15 18:57:23

Can I ask a perhaps obvious question - if you get higher rise, how do you avoid 'muffin top' spilling out over the top?!

Linea by house of Fraser. Great quality denim that keeps it's shape. I'll try to link.

Yup just buy a whole bunch of skinnies from a dept store that will do loads of brands easier to do returns that way

Another vote for next skinnies

Wassat Sun 11-Jan-15 19:44:31

That's the thing- I don't want muffin top or baggy kneessad thanks for the recommendations

Pleaseandthankyou Sun 11-Jan-15 19:46:25

Try the 7 for all mankind sale. High rise and no muffin top. I am not sure what they have left

newgirl Sun 11-Jan-15 19:47:41

YOu could go to a designer shop and get a pair for that in the sale? Any really pricey boutiques near you? I spend about that on jeans used to be 180-220

I bought a pair of Alice slim cut jeans in Mango yesterday and I'm thrilled with them. I recently bought high rise tube trousers(jeggings?) in river island. I like the fit on the legs but the crotch keeps heading towards my knees...

HandMini Sun 11-Jan-15 19:53:12

I've got some super soft high rise skinnies from J Crew. I love them and they are my winter staples. So snug to tuck your shirt right in, a la Cowell!

noddyholder Sun 11-Jan-15 19:54:22

For your shape the primark push up push in are brilliant £11

LexieSinclair Sun 11-Jan-15 20:00:03

I like the Next ones too. They're the only ones that don't give me a muffin top or sag round the crotch after a couple of wears.

fiorentina Sun 11-Jan-15 20:08:00

I also rate Uniqlo for value. I used to be a Gap fan but now tend to favour Uniqlo for quality and fit. If you're near London you could try a session Selfridges instead trying on lots of different brands.

Wassat Sun 11-Jan-15 20:19:45

No, bristol is my nearest city. Am I right in thinking a size 10 usually equates to a 28" waist? Dh has just announced the jeans I'm currently in 'do me no favours at all' thanks darling so all advice appreciated!

BelindaAllWorkedOut Sun 11-Jan-15 20:20:15

your body sounds similar to mine. My favourite ones are the Zara mid rise skinny jeans, esp in the TRF at range. If in between sizes, size down.

noddyholder Mon 12-Jan-15 08:30:57

Yes TRF are really good forgot those!

HandMini Mon 12-Jan-15 11:15:22

Yes. Sz 10 wld equate to a 28 wait.

minibmw2010 Mon 12-Jan-15 11:20:30

New Look do great high rise Skinnies too.

Hi Wassat. You sound like you could be me - I have the 3 children, the wobbly tummy, no backside and thin legs - oh and I live in Bristol! Next Lift Slim & Shape jeans work for me. They are not ridiculously high waisted like some I have tried (where the front pockets sit abnormally high) but they hold it all in and are very comfortable. I have got 2 pairs of blue and a pair of black. I prefer the slim to the skinny leg but that's just me. Next up at Cribbs usually have a good selection but I tend to order from the Directory and get them delivered for free to the shop. Then you can collect them, try them on and return the ones you don't want just in one visit.
