Where to get proper jeans with abit of stretch?

So I need a pair of proper skinny jeans with a little stretch but not jeggings! Something that is flattering on the tummy but pulls in the tummy instead of just stretching over it and allowing it to look wobbly! I have had jeans like this before but can’t seem to find any!

Any idea where to look? confused

Have you tried Next? I bought a skinny pair recently but they arent too skinny and have good stretch, I think they also do some which have support across your tummy and lift your bottom too smile

I think I may hit have had some before! Do you find they loose shape abit when you wear them?

They seem ok at the moment, but I did only buy them a couple of weeks ago so may be too soon to tell. I have washed them obviously and they haven't lost shape yet.

Gap. Their true skinny svelte are the holy grail of skinny jeans with a bit of stretch. They're about £70 but I've genuinely never bought better jeans.

They're on same at the moment actually.

I'm on the same mission. Bought some from Next last week but after trying them on at home and walking from bedroom to bathroom I realised they were already slipping down - they seemed too clingy on the legs and not nearly fitted enough in the waist and hips, so I'm going to return them. Not sure where else is good for skinny jeans (and not £££) at the moment. New Look used to be (surprisingly), years ago, but think they may have gone very 'fashion forward' with annoying fancy styling details. What are Gap like these days??

M and S?.....

Oasis Jade are good. I got coated skinnies last year and a black pair in summer. Don't go saggy, stretchy, high enough in the waist to hide my mum tum. I'm waiting for the sales to buy the grey ones.

I always buy red herring jeans. I find them a good fit all round and they last ages!

Love my Next ones.

River Island, think they’re called Amelia or molly
I’ve had a few pairs and even the ones described as jeggings on their website are more like proper jeans
They hold their shape too and they come in mid/high waist

Next 360 Range! Very flattering and stretchy but don’t look stretchy material, if that makes sense??

I have then in black, dark blue, light blue & white. Love them. £48 a pair and wash lovely.

I mostly wear M&S Collection jeans although they don't last for ages. The Autograph jeans are better quality but they only have limited styles and colours in at any time.

I really like Hudson (House of Fraser sell them) but they’re expensive. Sometimes half price in the sake but still nearly £100.

I bought the high waisted ones from Primark. Really cheap and holds in my mum tum. Size 10 perfect fit. I am anything from 10 to 14 in jeans.

Maine at Debenhams have really comfy jeggins. Apart from comfy waist, I think they look like proper jeans.

I swear by River Island jeans

N Y D J - Not Your Daughter’s Jeans.
Pricey but affordable second hand off eBay.

Following too.

I like a little lycra but so many jeans have too much and they go baggy too quickly.

I’ve had two excellent pairs of skinnies from Biden with some stretch. I bought them two years ago and they are still going strong.

Another Nydj recommendation .I buy them from Brand Alley as they are considerably cheaper .Or Cbla joggers ( jeans) from Brand alley .These are fantastic on but sadly only available in a size 16 now.I am a 14 and speculatively ordered a 12 & 16 and they are perfect due to very soft stretchy denim.

Super skinny Amelie from River Island. Bloody brilliant and wish I’d found them years ago. £40

Topshop Jamie jeans every single day of the week. Would never ever buy a different brand. They are so flattering, stretchy and comfy.
