I'm apple shaped and looking for some skinny jeans or jeggings in dark indigo that are comfortable around the waist. I'm size 14/16. Any recommendations?

Sainsbury’s performance jeans are really stretchy. I’ve just bought my first pair and they’re really comfortable.

I have some high waisted jeggings from littlewoods that are comfortable. I'm a 16 Apple too and need high waisted or they cut me in half

Tesco high waist or simply be are good.

I've got some from Avon in a 14/16 and they're really comfy. They have a tummy control panel too so they're very flattering.

Matalan high waisted skinnies (they are super stretchy) but definatley not their jeggings (sooo uncomfortable)

Also, Tesco jeans.

Primark super skinny come up quite high without being specifically high waisted. I find them very comfortable.

I saw Matalan mentioned on another thread but their super skinny jeans in indigo are all ripped - not what I'm looking for.

I've got dp eden jeggings but don't find them that comfy around the waist, they're a bit low for me.

I don't have Sainsburys that stocks many clothes nearby, might look online.

I'll try primark thanks.

TK Maxx own brand high waisted. Try them on because the sizings are American.

Another vote for Sainsburys; I've just had abdominal surgery so comfort in the waist area is v.important right now! Also the Harper jeans from Very.

White Stuff's. Really, really comfy. Also Seasalt's, though I don't like the styling quite so much.

The latest incarnation of Gap skinnies seem to have a higher waist (they are not the actual high waist ones).

Hi I just got some high waisted skinny jeggings from m&s, they are really comfortable & soft nice thick waistband which sits flat I think they were £15.00

placemarking so i can have a browse tomorrow...

H&M one’s are £12.99 and come in loads of colours. I’ve just bought the Maternity versions too because they fit so well!

Arsenicinthesugarbowl Tue 24-Oct-17 20:44:18

Another vote for M&S high waisted jeggings. I have a few pairs and they are great!

Unicorn81 Tue 24-Oct-17 20:51:30

Marks and spencers sit nice and dont dig in

I like fatface five pocket jeggings. They’re stretch but have a proper waist and fly, I wear them with a belt. I can’t be doing with elasticated waists.

Puppymouse Tue 24-Oct-17 21:15:06

I am Apple exactly same size as you. I wear Gap true skinny. Never had any issues. I find slightly higher waist is best. I will always have an overhang because if my tummy but not as much of a muffin....

Ifonlyiweretaller Tue 24-Oct-17 22:44:39

Can someone post a link to the M&S ones please? My search doesnt seem to be working...

RaptorsCantPlayPoker Tue 24-Oct-17 22:45:28

Uniqlo trouser leggings are great.

repetitionrepetition Tue 24-Oct-17 22:51:21

maternity ones with stretchy band!!! i bought some from asos when pregnant and I’m not now (and weigh less than pre preg!) and am still wearing them.. looovely!

I like the Primark high waisted skinny jeans. £9 and really comfortable.

I also buy from Tesco too.
