Despite losing 5 stone, I still have No Waist At All Also seem to have forgotten how to dress myself, and am convinced I'm still a scruffy student and in denial about turning 40 last year! Think I'm in need of a couple of pairs of jeans, but having difficulty finding anything flattering. 5ft6, size 10-12, no waist, no bum, and chunky calves like a rugby player. Finding that skinny/slim jeans don't stay up and also get stuck on big calves. Help oh wise MN-ers please - where do other apple shapes buy comfy flattering jeans/trousers?
Wallis trousers with the side zip and stretch are wide on the waist and snug-ish on the hips. Often if trousers fit me on the waist they look like jodhpurs on the hips. This sort of thing. I usually need to go down a size.
I'm apple too, high waisters with belt loops are your friend. I like topshop Jamie's. I also wear topshop joni, but they don't have belt loops so I do need to hoick them up from time to time. I've got into oasis too before. Fat face and white stuff are also cut for apples, though they are a bit too roomy on the hips for me.
