Are these jeans flattering on me ?

Hi just got these 'farliegh' jeans from Asos.
Am so used to skinnies so thought I'd try something different but not sure if they're flattering or not . Prior to having dc3 I was so sure about my fashion sense but years of utter sleep deprivation and other issues have meant I've totally stopped bothering making an effort to even wear a nice pair of jeans so this is a big step for me .
Honest opinions plz . For the record am 5 foot tall.
Also what size / size range would you say I am ? My sister who dresses amazingly well always tells me I am going for the wrong sizes and that's part of the problem.

I can´t see any picture.

Whoops!

I think they look good on you!

abc12345 Mon 23-Apr-18 12:50:57

They look great

halfwitpicker Mon 23-Apr-18 12:52:33

Yup. Ding dong.

GinGeum Mon 23-Apr-18 12:53:21

I really like them! They look great. Is it your top tucked in making the pocket areas bulgy? You look like a lovely size 8-10 to me.

pigpoglet Mon 23-Apr-18 12:55:03

I'd say size 8, I'm 5 foot and much fatter than you at an12 ... I can't see how anything would look bad on you . You have a great figure !

OhBergine Mon 23-Apr-18 12:55:08

I like them. I'd say you're a 10 -12?

MNscum Mon 23-Apr-18 12:56:45

Really like them, would say a size 10? But am bad at guessing sizes.

gamerchick Mon 23-Apr-18 12:58:21

They’re fine and I would say you were a 12.

Are they comfortable sitting down in?

blueskyinmarch Mon 23-Apr-18 12:58:26

They are lovely on you. I reckon you are a 10-12 as you look about the same size as my DD1.

Momo18 Mon 23-Apr-18 12:59:41

No sorry. Look a bit bulky round the hip area, you have a lovely figure you would suit slim fitted skinny jeans more

WildCherryBlossom Mon 23-Apr-18 13:00:24

They look great. You have a lovely figure. My styling suggestions would be to roll them up a tiny bit at the ankle and don't tuck in your top.

uberqueen Mon 23-Apr-18 13:04:06

Thank you for your replies. I've tucked the top in just to make the top part visible. The jeans size is: waist 26 length 28. Had no idea what size to buy but asos have this thing where you enter your weight and height and it recommends a size for you.

They look good! I have bought a similar pair myself recently, after wearing only skinnies in recent years.

Btw, I think tucked in tops look good with that style..

To be honest, I think they don't fit you properly. Looks like they are too long in the waist so too much material at the crotch. I agree with your sister. They fit at the waist but too big on hips and too high for your length of body causing the excess material at crotch.

uberqueen Mon 23-Apr-18 13:47:33

also, thanks for the lovely comments everyone. Was totally expecting to be told they/me were horrible.
I have literally no hips /waist bluntness and am straight up and down generally which is why I often struggle with sizing.

Bluntness100 Mon 23-Apr-18 13:49:56

I'm fairly the same. I think uou need something that's about an inch shorter in the rise, they are just too long waisted for your body.

AnyFucker Mon 23-Apr-18 13:52:18

They look a bit too big for you except for the waist which is a perfect size.

Is there much give in the material ? When they stretch a bit they will look baggy I think.

uberqueen Mon 23-Apr-18 13:55:37

Not much give I don't think . Being thick waisted with narrow hips is not the easiest combination !

KatherinaMinola Mon 23-Apr-18 13:57:18

They look pretty good except for the bulge around the hips - I would have said that they were a little small around that area, based on this photo.

Going by your height I'd guess you were a size 8 at the most.

MarshaBradyo Mon 23-Apr-18 13:59:06

I think you can get ones that are a better fit on you

AnyFucker Mon 23-Apr-18 14:01:06

Try River Island. They are quite forgiving on the waist, IMO. (speaking as a fellow straight up and down person)
