Have you seen levis wedgie jeans? It seems knickers riding up bum is also a thing now hmm

Really? They actually call them that? It's hard to think of anything more ridiculous to make into a fashion trend that hasn't already been done. Maybe visible sanpro...

Just had a look at those wedgie jeans and I'm mildly disappointed. They're really just the ultra tight, do-them-up-with'a-coat-hanger jeans of tge 70s.

In the eighties I had a pair of black jeans that were so tight my mate had to sew me into them. I honestly can't remember what I did when I needed the loo. Probably best not to think about it. grin

I love stuff like that. I have several Vivienne Westwood skirts, and often get asked if I've got my skirt tucked up. A nice lady chased me down the street once, very concerned for me.

OMG, 80s jeans (I was a size 8 ) there was no Elastene in jeans, it was proper lie on the floor with a coathanger then gingerly get vertical.

And my hip bones skin went numb shock goodness knows what it did to my insides.

I quite like the pink dress though................................... blush

I like the dress too - wonder if it comes in turquoise <muses>

I also remember 80s jeans - I used to have bruises over my hip bones & had to drag myself to pieces of furniture in order to stand up hmm

Is that an All Saints dress? Because I am pretty sure I have it in black.

I saw someone with a similar dress yesterday- worse than the pic, quite bizarre, I did a double take grin

Floisme Wed 18-May-16 18:45:38

I like it too.

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Wed 18-May-16 18:46:46

The one I saw came between the legs like a nappy, most bizarre!


I saw this recently. Very nice!

Omg bruises from wearing jeans?!! I can't stand it if my belt digs in a bit, never mind bruises!

Yes, bruises! 100% cotton only in those days & when freshly-washed they would be as stiff as a board & very, very tight! Skin-tight "drainpipes" & 4" heels - it's a wonder I could walk about at all grin
