best skinny jeans to give you a decent curvy bum?

I used to have a great bum. Then I had two children, and even though I'm exercising like crazy, my jeans seem to be flattening instead of lifting it.

I'm a size 10, probably getting back towards an 8, and prefer skinnies. I used to have the top shop super skinnies, but they also seem to make it look flat.

Do I have to keep squatting like a demented Duracell bunny, or is there a pair of jeans out there that can help me out??

I'm sure it isn't a favourite on here, but my best is next's lift slim & shape. You may need to go down a size. I tried on everything in 7 for all mankind etc then realised it was pointless spending 10x as much on something that didn't suit me as well. I'm 5'5", hourglass, flat-ish bum, size 10 in there. I have long legs for my height and take a regular length there.

You'll need an 8 in there!

How tall are you?

Oh we have a next on our highstreet, that's brilliant! I would never have thought of next!

I'm pretty short- 5 foot three and normally take 30 inch leg (so proportionally longer legs than body, as 32 in the days of bootcut, and petite is always far too short!)

Any other suggestions? My poor flat bum would be eternally grateful!

Try salsa jeans.

I was about to post an identical thread!
I was in next this week trying on those shaping jeans and they were nice, it was the colour that put me off, they had that bleached effect all round the bum and crotch areas?! Maybe there are other colours available though just not in my local store.

I love Zara jeans, they always seem to have loads of different types of skinnies in varying lengths that flatter bums. Might be worth a try?

River Island 'Amelie' jeans. I'm a size 8-10 in jeans with no bum shape and they've given great, erm, lift blush

Fantastic, thanks so much for all the suggestions. I'll try all of these!

I'm a similar build and predicament and love my h&m jeans. I also have next smart leggings and my bum looks pretty good them. ;) Ive got 2 as well. Everyone who's had their second with our build have all complained about wider bums and bigger legs this time around!
