Skinny jeans with a proper high waist?

(34 Posts)
CatsRidingRollercoasters Sat 11-Mar-17 23:20:40

I need some jeans advice please!

I am a 5ft 7 size 12 but I haven't yet come anywhere close to having regained my figure due to 2 babies in the last 3 years.

I have a wardrobe full of cheap jeans which don't fit properly.

I want to find a pair of good quality skinny jeans with a proper high waist. Not one of these pretend high waisted pairs which in reality just sit awkwardly on my hip bones and I keep having to pull them up I'm looking at you, New Look.

I can't really justify more than £50 and would ideally like to spend less. But for the jeans of my dreams I'd go over £50.

Any tips? I don't want to waste yet more money on cheap jeans which don't fit. Thanks!

I really loved the topshop Joni jeans smilethey came up lovely and high and were so comfy too! They're gathering dust in the wardrobe for whenever I lose the baby weight too grin

I have some fab Gap high waisted skinny jeans.

Topshop Joni £36

Heading off to Google the Topshop and Gap ones now... I knew Mumsnet would have the answer!

I'm 5ft 9", 11st 7lb, apple shaped, and Marks and Spencer's high waisted super skinnies do me proud. I'm a 14 in Next.

Topshop Joni are not quite right for me but I now live in their Jamie jeans - high but not too high. I used to wear Topshop Leigh but they just fell down all the time. hmm

I also used to buy all the expensive jeans but I think Topshop are the best and v v reasonable price-wise.

I love these. They are good quality, tummy button high, flattering and cheap!

MsHippo Sun 12-Mar-17 07:30:06

Yes yes yes abc I'm evangelical about those! Sadly my older pair died yesterday after almost daily wear for a year - I split the crotch doing an inadvisable lunge whilst attempting to construct some ikea furniture. I'm in mourning! Fortunately I do have a backup pair grin

I second Gap high waisted skinnies and topshop Jamie's.

FenellaMaxwellsPony Sun 12-Mar-17 07:40:58

I love the Topshop Jonis and also the M&S ones - the M&S ones are a little more.... Forgiving.

BalletZeus Sun 12-Mar-17 07:41:36

these will be exactly what you're looking for!

Had a look at the Jamie jeans!

Gap- super high rise skinny jeans are super flattering and always either 30 or 40% off.

daimbar Sun 12-Mar-17 07:44:07

I shopped around for the same recently and am surprisingly impressed with Primark high waisted skinny jeans.

They are only £7 and so comfortable!

I never got on with Topshop Joni.

Spend £90 on a pair or Karen Millen jeans that i never wear but love my primark ones.

Another vote for Jamies!

TooMinty Sun 12-Mar-17 07:57:28

Another vote for Topshop Jamie and a big no for their Leigh jeans, start out comfortable but fall down every five minutes. Gap are ok but sized very generously - get two sizes smaller than you usually wear, seriously!

Next 360 degree stretch (or similar name) are great, very stretchy, very high waisted and really comfy. Under £50 and you can often get them for nearer £20 in their sale section.

Top Shop Jamie and Gap High Rise Skinnies.

Simply Be, which also offer longer leg length for taller people. Their jeans are a great fit.

Cakescakescakes Sun 12-Mar-17 09:11:18

Jamie's aren't quite high enough for me. Are the Joni's higher waisted?

ActuallyThatsSUPREMECommander Sun 12-Mar-17 09:14:41

GAP high waisted skinnies yes. Sign up to their spam emails and wait until you get a 40% off code.

Next have some good ones, that's where I get all mine from because all other skinny jeans I've bought have ended at my hip bones.
