I can't find jeans or jeggings that don't look like clown trousers after 20 mins. They look ok trying them on in shop, but utter shit later. I have drawers full of them.

Tell me your secrets please!

Dorothy perkins eden jeggings. Only jeans that dont give me baggy arse.

I have approx 7 pairs in black (for work) and about 8 other colours (purple / green / denim, etc)

Very comfy and also come in high waisted so no arse crack flashing either

Dorothy Perkins Eden & Bailey have stretch and don't go baggy and I'm an 18 if that helps 😀

I think I'm in the minority but I love the fit of Next lift and shape straight legged jeans.

Another vote for Dorothy Perkins Eden & Bailey. Also Darcy.

Saves the hoik and wiggle to tuck the arse/belly/love handles back in grin

Ooh, good thread. I bought a size 18 pair of jeans from Littlewoods recently. Chucked the packaging because they seemed to fit nicely but are easily now closer to a 22 after just a few wears. So annoying!

I've always found DP online better than the shop. My local one only seems to stock up to a 16 on a good day.

25% off sale this weekend!

Try sainsbos. I have a couple of cheap pairs that fit soooo well. Esp their girlfriend style.

Are you sure you need an 18? I had the same problem no matter what brand I tried. Then I bought a 16 and although I felt like an overstuffed sausage for a few days they soon stretched to fit perfectly. I think if jeans fit perfectly in the changing room they end up a saggy baggy mess soon after.

I have this problem with jeans, I think it is exacerbated by being an apple is hateful.

Sainsbury's... I've stopped buying blue jeans from anywhere else. Not the black ones though, the cheap dye they use makes them reek.

botanically, I have a saggy mum belly that 16's just looks soooooo bad.

I am a size 18 on the bottom and I get my jeans from new look. I buy the "skinny high waisted". They also hold in your tummy and stay up just fine! smile

Next or Joules jeans for me size 18.

tshirtsuntan Tue 30-Aug-16 16:54:46

New look high waisted skinny....don't sag, hold it all in and only a tenner grin

I actually gave up on wearing jeans at all because of my tummy then one day I tried these, and took the plunge with the 16. Honestly they'll stretch! Same way the 18s do to be too big.

I only tried these on because they were on the reduced rail. Turns out they weren't reduced but they were so good I bought them anyway. They come in straight and skinny leg too, this link is to the boot cut:

In case the link doesn't work they're Jasper Conran shape enhancing high-waisted jeans. They're £45.
