Jeans for a big bum but slim waist

(18 Posts)

I'm quite bottom heavy but have a slimmer waist - size 14 bum and thighs but size 12 waist.

I really struggle getting jeans to fit as they gape or start to slip down.

Any suggestions of brands worth trying?

Thanks in advancesmile

I recently got a pair of straight leg jeans from crew clothing and they fir really well. I am the same shape as you. I liked them so much I bought a second pair.

I have the same problem and just tried a pair of GAP Curve, and they fit perfectly!

I've always found Matalan's Papaya jeans good - my waist is about 2 sizes smaller than my bum/thighs/hips.

I've not tried gap curve but their stretch ones are good

I've got the same problem. Jeans that fit my legs are too big round the waist. Thanks for this

Second for salsa here.

I have a 12 inch waist to arse variation.

Marks and Sparks (both Per Una and the standard denim range) suit my large hips and small waist.

I recently bought some M and S high waist super skinnies, and they fit well and are unbelievably comfortable as well as flattering. I bought a 14 which did fit quite loosely, but after having shrunk in the wash they are a perfect fit. I just hope they don't shrink any more.

After years of struggling to find a pair of really comfortable jeans, wearing the high waisted ones were a revelation. Mid and low rise are just too uncomfortable for me as they cut into the widest part of me.
