I have two pairs from last season and wore them a fair bit. I am a pear and size 12. I think they can flatter but i think what you need to consider is balancing your shape. I suppose that means thinking more carefully where the t-shirt or top ends. I would not wear a shortish top with them but one that would come down further. I feel for me, this looks fine. Strangely ordered their palest ones this year and feel i am maybe between sizes as they are really baggy. I can see though they are different from the darker shade as they have elastine through them which it doesnt state on the description. I have reordered them in a 10 to compare.
I was thinking of ordering these. Usually a size 8 to 10 depending on shop so hopefully an 8 will be fine size wise. Just wondering if anyone knows of a discount code for Hush - even free delivery would be good!
I bought some today in John Lewis so I could try them on first. They are the first boyfriend jeans I've bought and they are really comfy. Quite loose and casual looking, compared to my usual skinny or straight leg jeans. I'm usually 8-10 the 8 are a bit big but I think that's just the style so I'm keeping them.
Reporting back. Well, the jeans arrived yesterday, and I don't like them, so they will be going back. They fit, but are unflattering, and are certainly not loose-fitting on me: maybe they are not the right style for curvier hips. I am not fat, but I felt it in these, and trying them on has actually made me feel quite a frump! So it's back to my trusty Sainsbury's slouchy- fit jeans, which I've had for years, and in which I feel shapely.
