Thank you in advance for any advice given.

I am currently losing weight. Should have lost it by my birthday at the bringing of May.

I am putting money away every time I lose to save up for some nice pairs of jeans.

I have never had a pair that I feel comfortable even when I was slim. They either gape at the back or feel like they are coming down and I keep having to pull them back up.

I am a kick boxer so have fairly muscular thighs and a fairly big bum even when my body fat is low. I also have quite long legs.

I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction as I am planning on where to go shopping for my birthday.

Many thanks

Oh I would be looking for a couple of pairs for during the day and a couple for evening.

Not answering your question, but are you having these problems when you're wearing a belt with them?

Katenka Thu 18-Feb-16 07:01:48

I have never worn a belt as I always find them uncomfortable when I sit down. Should I get one?

It would open up your options I think.

Soft eg woven belts are more comfy I reckon

I've lost quite a bit of weight in the last year and have invested in a couple of pairs of 7 for All mankind jeans. They are higher waisted, incredibly flattering and have good stretch. They keep their shape, don't fall down even without a belt. I bloody love them. I have a wide bum (curses!) and quite chunky legs too, even now I am slimmer. I have rugby player legs sad even though I have never played rugby

I bought one pair in the USA and one pair from Next of all places. The latter were £160 but I put some Xmas vouchers towards them.

I also like Abercombie & Fitch jeans though they're not as comfy as the 7fam ones.

Thank you. Will try a soft woven belt.

Will get looking at wear I can try the 7 for all mankind in our area. I should have quite a bit of money saved up and would rather spend more and finally have decent jeans.

High waisted sounds good for me.

Thank you

It might also be worth looking for jeans that you find comfortable on your bum/thighs, and get someone who can sew to adjust the waist. Here, lots of clothes shops offer this kind of alterations service, and there are independent businesses that do, too - it's not very expensive. Maybe see if anyone knows of a good person near you who could help, if you don't sew yourself?

'jeggings' are also another option. They are a cross between jeans and leggings. I have two pairs of jeggings from white stuff. One is in a black wash and the other mid denim. I love them and they are ultra comfy. Worth having aswell. Next also do good ones.

Diesel, Replay and M&S plus another vote for 7forallmankind.
I also have chunky thighs (according to my jeans) and find huge gaps around the waist.
Best bet is hit the shops, in a big town where there is loads of choice. Wear decent knickers and easy to take off shoes and trousers. Try on every pair you can. Just as you find a brand that seems to fit, the bastards will change the house model and you will need to start the search again.

Thank you for all the advice!

Jeggings maybe an idea. Will go and try a load on, including jeggings.

muminbrussels I never thought of that. My auntie is a dress maker. She made my wedding dress. Thank you!
