White jeans that aren't see through

Looking for a pair of white jeans that aren't see through. Usually buy jeans from oasis or Zara but tried some oasis ones and they were really thin fabric. Perhaps Zara better.

Have also tried some m and s ones on but same problem.

Is there a good go-to place for these?

You'd be better of buying nude knickers with no VPL.

Ah but nude knickers don't hide the pocket problem . If anything they make it worse.

What do,you mean pocket problem?

SippingSipsmith Tue 16-May-17 17:59:35

Yes both the pocket problem and vpl. Driving me mad when I try them on.

I think CORAL means being able to see the lining of the pockets through the jeans as well.

Next jeggins? Haven't had a pocket problem before.

I bought some nice ones from Primark, sewed up the pockets and cut out the pocked inner.

Zara! I've also had a good pair from topshop and from Paige.

A few years ago, I got a pair of waxed white jeans from Zara and they were the best ever.

I've just bought a nice thick pair from Levis.

Thanks all!

Will try Zara. Levi's thick denim isn't stretchy enough for me to get over my thunder thighs! Will look at Topshop too.

I had exactly the same problem Sipsmith (great name BTW, mmm taste those aromatics!) - I've lost count of the number I jettisoned because of the pocket issue! I found some by Great Plains last year and they're perfect. Thick enough but with stretch to accommodate the pear-shaped thighage. Now if someone can recommend light coloured work trousers without the great pocket problem I'll be a happy bunny.

Boden - I have bought their white jeans most years - last year's had nude colour pocket lining - perfect

Agree, Boden!

DressageNut Thu 18-May-17 07:52:12

Agree, Boden!

SippingSipsmith Thu 18-May-17 13:10:07

Brilliant! Am about to place an order for Boden sandals so will add the jeans in. Thanks

SippingSipsmith Thu 18-May-17 13:11:24

grinpear shaped thighage! Sounds much better than thunder thighs! Will use, thanks!!

The straight leg is more flattering than skinny fitting in the white.
