I cant find any that fit right and am down to my last scruffy pair

I'm only 5 foot but size 16, I tried next jeans at £45, body sculpting things with lycra but they stretched too much on me and I didnt like them, I tried loads more in next and nothing fitted right

I dont want skinny, I like slim.

I'm a 16 and 5ft 4 with short legs. I 've got a couple of pairs of these in short, but there's an extra short too. They're comfy and have a bit of stretch which is nice. They're £15 jeans so not the epitome of chic, but for everyday working and mumming, absolutely fine.

I wear the M&S ones too. I’ve never found any from anywhere else that fit my short legs.

I'm short of leg and find Fatface is really good for jeans for me.

I had a really good pair of jeans from M and S but they've stopped doing them.

What has being a mum got to do with buying or wearing jeans?

Monsoon short jeans and I have found Boden to be a good fit too.

I like John Rocha at Debenhams 'Brooke' jeans. High waisted and slim, not skinny.
