I have always had Topshop skinny jeans but am finding post 2 babies that they are too low cut, and bending over to play with the kids is revealing too much!

What brands would you all recommend? I am a size 10, average height. Looking for a pair that are higher cut but still nice and skinny.

Dorothy Perkins Eden. They are brilliant. Cover that wee overhang baby big and really hard wearing

I bought some from M&S (yes really) - they're Limited Super Skinny and were £29.50 I think. Really dark wash, good high waist and bit of stretch but not so much that they fall down constantly. Very very flattering on. Pretty true to size I'd say. Actually here's a link.

Which style at topshop do you wear? The Jamie ones are high waisted and so comfy!

I used to
Wear Topshop Leigh jeans. I tried
River island joni (high waist) or Molly. They are fab, fit well and last ages

I prefer River Island. They are much less buttock cleavage revealing.

Or Next. Not sure you are ready for Next though smile

I was going to say the Jamie ones keep everything nicely tucked in smile

I had a very similar post recently! I've just made the switch from Leigh to Jamie from Topshop. J Brand high waisted are also good, TX Maxx have them for around £50 a pair.

I've always bought H&M jeans. Recently graduated from their low-rise ones to their high waisted ones since having DD. I can't fault them.

M&S five pocket jeggings! See here:

They are so comfy, amazing fit, great tummy suck, nice and high waisted, don't fall down, and only twenty quid!! Join the following!

I'd recommend sticking to Topshop but opting for their high-waisted style. I think the good thing with Topshop jeans is that you know where you are in terms of sizing and leg length. Possibly it's just me that's a bit evangelical about it as it's the only store I'll happily order jeans online from.

I agree with switching to Jamie or Joni. I used to wear Leigh but I need a bit more scaffolding around the middle section now blush

M&s was what's bought after birth. It had the space to hold my tummy together. Most of their jeans are high waisted. The high waist also helps when you have a big bum. Covers it better.

Thanks everyone! Definitely time to get myself into town minus children and try some of these suggestions on smile

Definitely try Topshop Jamies. The denim is thicker than Leighs and the waist higher.
M&S jeggings are also higher waisted.
Gap might also be worth a look.

Are the M&S jeggings pull on or do they have a zip and button?

I'm looking for a new pair of pull on jeans, preferably with a straight leg rather than plastered-to-me-skinny.

Asda wonderfit jeans. Seriously they are so comfy & stretch over any muffin top & don't go out of shape.

I buy New Look super skinny jeans these days. They are good, and quite cheap (under £30) and I have loads of pairs so that it doesn't matter when they get covered in child-related snot / stick / gloop. I find that whatever jeans I buy fade or rip at the knees really quickly (too much time on the floor with my small children) - the New Look ones are no worse for this than others, and I don't feel so bad throwing them away when they were cheap in the first place.

I usually get topshop Joni's now. They done have extra bulk around the front with pockets. I also have a black high waisted pair from topshop that are the comfiest jeans ever but I can't remember the name of, I'll have a look n come back.

There are still good jeans at topshop i have Joni ones. I would recommend gap do a legging jean or resolution denim which is skinny but not too skinny.

ImBrian Sat 21-May-16 12:41:33

I have Joni's, they're fab.

ChickyDuck Sat 21-May-16 14:52:42

The M&S ones are proper jeans. Not really sure why they are called jeggings to be honest! They are definitely skinny not straight though.

Cakescakescakes Sat 21-May-16 18:09:28

The m&s ones I listed above don't have front pockets. They have a button and zip and actual hip pockets but the front ones are fake so they sit nice and flat.
