Always late to the style bandwagon, I have decided I need a pair.

Which would you recommend? Budget cheap as chips - the Next ones have a 6 weeks delay and really I want them for this weekend.

Am a size 12 (10-14 depending on shop) apple please don't say "None"

There's another thread on this somewhere! I have New Look in size 12. Someone said they're out of stock but they do more than one style and I have the high-waisted skinnies (very flattering and hide any muffin) about £24, I think.

thanks - saw the other thread as soon as I'd posted!! Those jeans are in my basket - are they true to size? Glad to hear they have muffin control grin.

Yy, true to size and really comfy too.

They arrive tomorrow - excited!!! Am going to wear with silk T and sparkly shoes. Does that sound hot or really not?

Mine arrived yesterday. Definitely no muffins going on here grin

Good old New Look grin

Wearing mine today! Super flattering.

New Look jeans are generally well cut for apple shapes, I have recently discovered.

My high cut ones are here and I love them. Not sure if the legs are a bit wrinkly though!

I see I'm too late but I have a high -waisted pair from George at Asda. £16 and fit brilliantly! Definitely no muffin top.

Now not sure what on earth to wear with them confused

I ordered my skinnies online. Super comfy and great quality. Love them! Good style, good fit and great with boots or shoes.

I've tried many pairs over the years, but I always look shite in them. For some reason they always wrinkle round the back and give me thunder thighs. Are the new look ones stretchy?

Wicks, I had the same issue, especially with those New Look ones. They were just too shiny and wrinkled everywhere.

I then found these Topshop Leigh coated jeans. They aren't too shiny, don't wrinkle and I love the ankle zips (makes putting them on so much easier too grin)

River island, but i would recommend going for a size up
