I’m apple shaped and jeans often don’t stay up as I have no bum! I find lighter fabrics stay up and fit me much better. I’ve come across these: https://www.uniqlo.com/uk/en/women/bottoms/leggings-trousers?productSelected=402688COL58. Anyone tried them? Any reviews/opinions of them? Thanks!
I bought some recently after hearing everyone raving about Uniqlo on here! I really like them, although annoyingly I'm between sizes.
I think they could work for you. They look like trousers with pockets and a button but you pull them on like leggings. So they should stay up!
With Uniqlo knitwear I would say you need to size up whereas I would say the leggings trousers are true to size, of possibly in the generous side. Best to order a couple of sizes to see what fits best.
The high waisted velvet ones are amazing and are very well made. Much better quality than usual: they look and feel like normal trousers.
They did cord ones last year that were good too, but sadly weren't high waisted which makes a big difference.
The normal leggings trousers are handy but are more like "one up from leggings" - comfy and easy to wear for running mum errands and going to soft play but thinner fabric and look a bit scruffy after 3-4 months.
I would say that the sizing is fairly standard to generous, especially in comparison to say Uniqlo knitwear where you need to size up.
I'm a 10 hourglass with big hips and skinny legs and would say I'm between S and M, but nearer to S. The S is a little bit tight so is not as comfy but looks better. The M is a little too big but really comfy. I would suggest you order both and see what you prefer.
