Sorry, me again. Saddlebags? I haven't a clue have I?

I'm becoming an expert at returning stuff. I'll be taking the pink sparkly jumper from my eatlier post back. Not sure about the cardie. I really love the colour so will try it open over a white shirt etc. to maybe tone down the granny.

Anyway. I also bought some jeans today. I really struggle to find jeans and trousers. I'm very self conscious of my thighs and in particular my saddlebags but I saw a photo of myself in my wide leg jeans and it wasn't pretty. sad The wide leg jeans aren't granny (honest!) but they made me look huge.

So today I tried on some bootlegs but all I can see is saddlebags. Do they look as bad as I think they do? Physically the jeans seem to fit and are comfy. Be honest, I can take it.

If they are passable what shoes should I wear? I've put them tucked into boots but my size 5 feet look huge! I can live with that but I'm worried my bottom half will look like an inverted triangle in trainers though.

Ignore the tent-y top. I love it but I've too many other curves for it to work on me so it's going to tye charity shop. You can't tell because of the top, but I'm an hourglass. My tummy is a bit bloated but is usually a little flatter.

I promise I'll go away now.

You look perfectly normal and fine in those jeans.

I like the trousers. They look good on you.

You have a lovely figure, and look lovely in those jeans. Stop stressing!

Actually I really like the top you are wearing!

TheMasterNotMargarita Sat 21-Oct-17 18:51:01

Jeans look totally fine.
You are a very similar shape to one of my friends and she is also very conscious of the same area but there's no need!

Rickoshay, happy to post it to you instead of charity shop of you want. It is a lovely top.

PS not asking for any money for it.

You don't have saddlebags, you have violin hips.
They look perfectly fine but if you want to disguise them it is not the jeans that are an issue but the length of the top which cuts you at exactly the wrong place. You need things that fall at hip length or lower.

It's this one.

They look fine. Better with trainees than tucked into boots

SierraFerrara Sat 21-Oct-17 18:57:13

Lapin, you are absolutely right about the length of top.

Off to google violin hips as I've never heard that phrase.
