I'm struggling. I'm 5'5 and I'm definitely a pear shape, so have a narrow waist and wide hips. I've been exercising regularly for about 6 months, so I'm pretty toned (and have a reasonably flat stomach). I've lost bulk (even though I weigh the same). Ideally I'd like some dark blue skinnies.
Can anyone suggest where I should be looking?
I've tried: Gap (too much material around the waist), River Island (regular too short, but long too long), Next (only go down to size 6 - which is too big).
I was going to say Next Slim'n'Lift are actually Bag'n'Sag. I bought a pair after months of not being able to wear anything round my abdomen (scars) but even though they have a high waist and two buttons, if I don't wear a belt they do the creeping down over my bum thing
You could try J Brand, a premium brand. Usually costs about £200 but loads of styles on TK maxx website for £60. They do a size 25 waist which is pretty small.
Or you could go for a jeans consultation either at a department store or a specialist jeans shop (trilogy or Donna Ida). Find out what suits you and then buy cheaper from the US (revolve clothing / eBay) or TK Maxx.
