If high-waisted trousers are the new in-thing why are the shops still full of low-risers?

ooh no, hate high waisters, too 80's for me. Does this mean the return of shoulder pads? I won't do it, I won't.

because they're unflattering to all except the young, tall and extremely svelte.

Try Topshop

they are only for tiny teenagers at the moment, soon they will come in matornly sizes and we will all indulge.

I tried a pair on in h&m v flattering surprisingly as they skim over wverything and look really slimming.Didn't buy them though as I wore them last time round.

Didn't Bananarama wear those with the braces?

Don't make me wear 80's clothes again... and what is that with leggings? Only if you're under 21 please...

mrs b you know i'm right. remember how we all resisted hipsters.......

i am so short waisted that hipsters are on my waist anyway. this is not going to be a flattering fashion for moi.

MrsBadger Tue 20-Feb-07 21:53:53

well, I guess if we can wear highwaisters with the same long tops we bought to cover our midriffs while wearing hipsters, no-one will be able to tell they're highwaisters...

Hipsters are no good for me as I have no hips - they either fall off or are like a corset.

There was an article in this weeks Grazia - they showed high waisted jeans from Top Shop (saw them yesterday) French connection, New Look, Boden and Oasis. Was on page 97. Apparently we should all be thinking Charlies Angels.
