VERY high waisted jeans...

(21 Posts)

I am not a particularly odd size (5' 7" and size 10) but I have a very long body. I am struggling to find high waisted jeans that actually go up high enough to sit on my waist. It means I end up with a bit of a muffin top which defeats the purpose of wearing high waisters! hmm
Anybody know of any jeans that might fit me?

I buy M&S "Long" leg length for this specific reason. The leg length is a bit too long on me but the distance from waist to crotch is longer so they fit much better.

Thanks, I have had some Next 'long' jeans but they're still about two inches too short in the body for me wink I'll give the M&S ones a try though...

Any other suggestions?

Primark super high waist. Only £11 too. I love them.

Would anyone be able to measure the rise of the Jonis and/or the Primark ones from crotch to waistband? I haven't been able to find any jeans that have a rise higher than 10" (as described online). I also have a long torso with a very short waist. Plus short legs. Finding jeans is a challenge!

Gap High Rise skinnies are the ones that come up highest on me.

Bugger was going to say next high waist

Bexicles Sun 25-Jan-15 19:38:43

Measured mine, exactly 10 inches.

Try Simply Be. They have high waisted jeans that are really high. Not sure of the longest length you can get instore - 33in i think - but try looking online in the catalogue.

Thanks Bexicles. Will have to try a pair.

Gap High Rise skinny jeans as well. I'm 5'6", long-bodied and a Gap size 10 in these sit on my waist.

Expensive but... Paige jeans have been the best value jeans for cost per wear. I am long in the body too. The best fit of any I tried (and I spent months trying!)

Ok so I've measured my Next high waisted jeans (size 10L) and they're 10 inches from crotch seam to top of front waistband. So similar to the Top Shop ones...
They're not high enough for me though! I could do with them being at least 11, preferably 12 inches to sit on my waist....

It sounds like I have a freakish body blush

Has anyone got a pair of Primark super high waisted jeans they could measure for me?

SorrelForbes Tue 27-Jan-15 20:25:36

I think the Gap ones have a 12" rise.

Have you tried Long Tall Sally?

Happymum1985 Tue 27-Jan-15 21:02:27

Go on ASOS they do ultra high waisted jeans on there and they are a great fit.

Bodicea Tue 27-Jan-15 21:14:33

I just bought some suck high waisted suck you in jasper conran jeans. They are the best air of jeans I have ever owned. And the highest waist I have had.

TooExtraImmatureCheddar Tue 27-Jan-15 21:20:41

Has anyone tried the Topshop Joni control top jeans? I was eyeing them up online but they were already sold out in anything bigger than a 28 waist, which I took to mean that they were good.
