Relaxed skinny jeans...

I HATE jeans shopping. I found my holy grail jeans - Next relaxed skinny - tight but not skinny tight, come in a short length, fit my small bum and thighs but do up round my wobbly tum then the sods discontinued them!!!! What else do you wise ladies suggest? Oh not Gap as I can't be bothered to sort out the sizing!

I actually rather like M&S jeans, they do a nice relaxed skinny

Try Levi's, I'm on my third pair of super skinnies (710) with them. They wear really well, super comfy and look fab. They do mid sizes and shorter leg lengths.

Yep, m and s do a relaxed skinny as previous poster said, but size down!

Wouldn't go passed Primark's high wasted skinny jeans. Hide my fat tummy and at only £9 I have them in every colour! smile

Primark also do a relaxed skinny. Only £10 but really good

Thanks for the suggestions ladies - I'll have a look at m&s and Primark. Do you know if Primark do a short length?

I really like marks jeans. I've never tried primark-do they keep their shape quite well?

finx14 Sun 07-May-17 10:20:17

Haven't had any issues with them and that price, three or four pairs to one Next pair, I love them!!!

Primark definitely do a short. I would try them on first though because I find Primark jeans quite short anyway. I need a long in there, even though I wear a regular everywhere else.

They do a short length.

I find they wash and wear well. Also they don't go baggy after an hour of wearing them. I have the relaxed skinny in a grey and the material is lovely, really soft, you would never guess they were primark. My favourite jeans are all Primark ones just now !

M&S were a disaster - the skinny were very skinny and the slim looked far too Mumsey! Will try Primark when I take a deep breath and gird my loins to enter the store.

Forgot the other stipulations: must be a darker blue and no rips or dodgey unfinished hems!

Sainsbury's do lovely jeans in various lengths but their sizing is big so you will probably have to size down. Not sure what they have in this year but I've had lovely ones in the past.

These are my favourite Gok ones. Unfortunately can't fit in them at the moment!

gooseygander88 Tue 09-May-17 19:12:54

I have exactly the same problem! Hate jeans shopping and like you had the relaxed jeans from next and hate their style now! I have results in buying a few jeggings from Dorothy Perkins and a they do a nice skinny relaxed in Sainsbury's for only £14!

Ha ha jeans bought in Gap with a 50% off voucher and the MOST helpful sales assistant! Real straight in the authentic 1969 style which fitted very differently than the normal real straight and were a different fabric composition too (who knew it was going to be this complicated) but fit really well and at 50% off were a bargain. The 50% off lasts until the 15th if anyone else needs to shop and was off everything in store.

The Gap authentic real straight are all sold out on the website, unless you're a 24" or 35" waist sad
