Can anyone recommend some jeans - not skinnies - for a short curvy person?
I've just succumbed and treated myself to a pair of DM shoes which I have wanted for ages. Love them but they don't quite work with my skinny jeans and fat legs - even thought I've got smallish feet I look a big golf clubesque . So I think I need something a bit looser fitting.
Ideally they'd be: - dark (indigo or black) as they'll go with more - petite length or just long enough to roll up - flattering for a generous bum - highish waisted so I don't constantly flash said bum - not £££ - orderable online with easy returns as I'm not planning to be near any decent shops in the next few days
I agree with the m&s sculpt and lift straight legs. I hope they are as good as they were made 6 years ago as my fave black pair have just worn away on the inside leg chub rub. I lived in these almost every other day until they finally gave up. Even dyed them a couple of times when they started to fade.
Thanks the M&S ones sound hopeful although the styling on their site is bloody awful! Never found anything I like in Wallis but I'll give them a go. Local Gap never seems to have a very good range of sizes and lengths which is annoying but if order online I might be lucky.
Following a recommendation on here (a few years ago) for budget jeans I bought M&Co jeans. I buy the straight leg ones and they are proper bum covering with a choice of colours and leg lengths. They are currently £20 a pair - £35 for two. I find they come up big in the waist though so I size down.
I've always managed to find a great fitting pairs in gap, but sadly not anymore! Their current styles really do nothing for me. They are either too wide or too skinny, plus they only stock up to a 32 in store now and occasionally I will need to go up to a 34.
I bought 2 pairs in the monsoon sale at christmas and they are my current favourites. They are a proper denim yet are soft and stretchy. They come up to my belly button and sit nicely. I never would have even looked at them if they hadn't been on sale, but I will be back, and this time I'd even be willing to pay full price!
