Spent years searching: gap, next, m&s blah blah ....
I am size 10-12; small waist but big ole cycling legs.... nothing has ever fitted properly. Any pair that has looked half decent I have had to use a belt to gather up the excess and constantly hoik up.
But I have found Good American jeans (by one of the Kardashians) oh my bloody good- soft; comfortable; so so wonderfully flattering. Thank you - my search is over

Oooh. Link please? And are they super long (I have the small waist chunky legs thing but also short legs. Yay me).

Racmactac Fri 22-Sep-17 20:44:03

Where do you get them from?

ScarletForYa Fri 22-Sep-17 20:45:37

Are they horribly expensive, I have big legs and bum but small waist....?

Same shape please!

You are describing me, minipie smile

Cricket, bit of a jump from next and m&s prices to Good American! Mega bucks.

Place marking for link.

Just found them on the Selfridges. Nearly £200 and they're all skinny. No hope for my massive calves.

koalab Fri 22-Sep-17 20:49:32

Oh, I'll stick to Asda's wonderful jeans that I discovered last week then grin

koalab Fri 22-Sep-17 20:50:23

Wonderfit, not wonderful. They are pretty good though.

Laiste Fri 22-Sep-17 20:52:59

Next do me ok. Took me a while to find them. I like the high or mid rise ones. Each pair lasts me about 3 months.

I'd be bloody peeved if i paid £200 for a pair of jeans and then wore the inner thighs out grin

MtbMagic Fri 22-Sep-17 20:54:40

I got them (2 pairs!!!) from selfridges but they are utterly worth the money. I am 48 and have spent years not been comfortable in jeans.
You know that feeling at the weekend when you'd rather wear anything else but those Levi curve; gap 365 etc etc? Knowing that you aren't fat etc but just don't fit standard jeans .... Good American are as comfortable as leggings; but make you feel amazing !!!

MtbMagic Fri 22-Sep-17 20:59:09

I have massive calves ... think cycling calves, they fit beautifully ... I have struggled in the past with calves and jeans and have often felt like I am wearing baked bean cans on my legs... these are smooth; structured and comfortable

Onynx Fri 22-Sep-17 20:59:23

I've just discovered Next 360degree stretch skinnies- fab!!

imjessie Fri 22-Sep-17 21:04:23

I'm an hour glass and they look like a great for but blimey they are high ! The girls look like they are wearing them under their arms !!

everythingsucks Fri 22-Sep-17 21:04:28

They look really nice but I notice that the larger sizes are sold out. If I had the money I’d definitely try them.
However some of her other clothes.....confused


NinonDeLenclos Fri 22-Sep-17 21:07:08

J Brand are good - they do similar high waist skinny jeans.

NinonDeLenclos Fri 22-Sep-17 21:08:22

Thx for the tip off.

NinonDeLenclos Fri 22-Sep-17 21:09:18

I think Kanye must have had a hand in that lounge suit.

MtbMagic Fri 22-Sep-17 21:09:30

Oh yes they are indeed high. Wonderfully high cos if you are small waisted ; pear shaped they bypass the waist and just fit... no gaps and bypassing the need to hoik up ... and I won't be wearing any crop tops 🤸🏻‍♂️

minipie Fri 22-Sep-17 21:15:05

I suspect you're a lot more toned than me OP, I need thicker fabric to hold the squidgy bits of bum in. Sounds like these are quite thin stretchy fabric
