Do Your Skinnies Wear Out Quickly?

I have a number of pairs of Uniqlo ultra stretch skinnies and love them. That said, I'm currently dieting my larger thighs and bottom down and have always walked a great deal. I'm noticing that the crotch area is almost worn through on a couple of pairs now. Does anyone else find this happens?

It happens to me too and I do not have fat thighs! It only happens on light weight jeans not real jeans!

Thanks Buster. Yes, I remember those 100% cotton days too and DH's 501s are still intact blush

I chucked a pair in the bin due to worn out crotch this morning, I'm pretty annoyed as I'd spent a bit more on these jeans then I normally would hoping they would last longer but no!

Jegging jeans are the worst for it.

I'm going to attempt to mend them with some iron on patches. I doubt that it'll work though, but it's worth a try.

Be careful Op if it's the thighs as they may irritate and cause pain!

Thanks Buster (and it's great to see another Viz fan on here!) I think you're right, so it's back to jeans shopping for me.

You could always invest in knickers down to your mid thigh in the same colour as the jeans! Or stitch on patches of red and white spotted hankys. Very 80s!

I found mine did egis but it happens less now I don't tumble dry them.
