Where can I buy proper jeans in a size 20ish?

Actual jeans. Not jeggings. Not skinny jeans. Nothing that encircles my ankles in a vice, but good old fashioned jeans.

Please help? blush

I find Tesco's jeans fit well.

M&S? Their sizes are l over the place bit some of the styles are ok

Squirmy65ghyg Tue 28-Mar-17 19:18:53

I tried on loads in tescos and they were all skinny fit. Does it have to be online?

Tesco do slim And straight , and bootcut for that matter . I love Tesco clothes , I've got some real gems from there .

Yours do bootleg which are a nice fit. Ive also gone as far as to buy from JCPenny and have them shopped over- the Ana jeans in plus size are really comfy and fit well

Tesco bootcut are the best I have had. Cheap too. My dp also buys them. (I hate Tesco normally but have to give them this one credit.)

If you can find Joe's jeans, definitely get them.

Levi's Plus Size?

I bought a lovely pair from Debenhams a couple of months ago, I like them so much I'm thinking of going back for another pair. It's from their The collection range, they have all sorts of different cuts and I'm pretty sure it went up to 20 and possibly over that as well (I'm a 16).

Hope this works

Debenhams - Rocha John Rocha. Bloody amazing. I wear 22 long in every style, they are well proportioned and well cut.

I like next jeans, I also like that I'm a 20 but fit into an 18 in their jeans!

Yes, Rocha John Rocha at Debenhams are really good, also Sainsbury's TU (though trying to find any in store that aren't skinny or jeggings is v difficult at the moment). If you can splash out, then NYDJ ones are excellent, they also do a plus size fit now as well as standard fit up to a 24, and there are some very nice bootcut with extra stretch ones too.
I found M&S jeans just a strange sizing, too big on the waist & too small on the thighs - Boden were the opposite though for me!

The Evans pearshape ones for me are the best. I have a smaller waist than hip and kept getting the 'gape' at the back. The Evans ones don't do that and I can get in a size smaller as they fit in the right places.

Obviously only helps if you are pearshaped
