I am literally down to one shabby pair of Gap jeans (that I don't love). I am size 10, but pear shaped. TIA!

I have gap high waisted skinnies and topshop jamies. They both fit well (although I am not a pear).

Fat face ones are quite high. I love mine.

Sainsbury has some good ones - the £16 ones are excellent!

Best jeans ever: Next 360 skinny.

You're welcome smile

Yes to Sainsbury high waisted ones.

mikado1 Wed 18-Jan-17 08:42:43

Oh thanks a mill. Not in UK so Sainsbury a no go. I meant to say a bit pear shaped rather than but.. size 10 bottom, size 8 top.

Try topshop Joni jeans? They are a skinny fit high waisted. Very flattering fit and stay in shape x

Love the Next ones too smile

Another vote for Jamies! Try on sizes 8 and 10, they seem to vary a little between colours. My grey ones are a little big but my black coated ones fit just right.

Jack Wills ❤️ also those TopShop ones but they are not quite such a good fit? The waist always seems a bit bigger than it should be.

I'm 5ft 2" and love my Topshop Jamies. They're black and have stayed black after many washes and the sizing is good. They come up just the right fit in the waist for me.

I'm also a pear shape, and would recommend Topshop Jamies too! Really comfy and don't go saggy in the wash, plus they fit nicely round bum and waist! They seem to only come in cropped/cigarette length now so I tend to get a slightly longer leg than I need and they fit perfectly :-)

Primark. I think they're called 'high waisted skinnies' and they're £14. So so comfortable and they keep their stretch and fade less quickly than more expensive ones.

Topshop Leigh are also high waisted and skinny!

PNGirl Wed 18-Jan-17 13:27:40

ASOS Ridley - just ordered some and they're awesome!

Ok great, thanks so much. Lots of choice and price ranges there. I had top shop leighs and liked them but 26inch waist was pushing it and I ditched them.. current gap skinned are embarrassingly low waisted and also saggy in bum plus too tight on calves blush

I tried joni before and lovely fit but made my bum very, shall we say, conspicuous !

Next. I have black, dark blue, pale blue. I love them!

KlingybunFistelvase Thu 19-Jan-17 22:02:16

Another vote for the Next 360 ones. I've just bought a pair and I luffs them so.

HalfStar Thu 19-Jan-17 22:43:12

asos ridley here too. Current pair is vv good indeed.

New look ones are really stretchy and don't sag.

BobbinThreadbare123 Fri 20-Jan-17 10:35:41

Mango Jane - they're halfway between a jean and a jegging and they fit really well. I've got a lot of arse, muscly thighs and small hips/waist. No gaping, I can actually pull them up and they don't dig in.

Another vote for Next.
