Skinny jeans for a fat tummy

(16 Posts)

I'm a size 14 but generally at the top end of the size; not big enough for 16 as they just swamp me so I tend to try to find the more generous labels. I had two pairs of skinny jeans from HoF's Linea range which were a perfect fit but they don't seem to do them any more and mine are falling apart. Any suggestions? (And yes, I probably should lose some weight).

The wonderfit ones from George /Asda are really soft and comfy and good for an apple

Hadn't even thought of Asda - thanks.

It wouldn't usually be my go-to shop for clothes for me tbh. But they are pretty good

Paper and Stitch lift and shape might work. I'm a pear shape but I find them very comfortable.

I second the wonderfit ones from Asda.

Topshop Joni. I have about six pairs. They suck EVERYTHING in, are proper skinny and make my legs look amazing. grin

Next Lift Slim and Shake Skinny. A revelation. Can’t recommend them enough.

I find the fat face ones good for my large tum!

Top shop joni - yes! Proper high waist. Nice and stretchy and comfy yet don’t bag out at the knees etc. They are great.

Don’t write off Top Shop - I’m a 14 on bottom and have plenty of jeans from there and am not at the top of the size scale.

Another vote for Next lift, slim and shape.

Mint velvet are great

I love Matalan ones. High waisted for mummy tummies

Sainsbury’s. A good high waist, stays up well, fits my legs comfortably.
