these are extremely flattering!

picture does not really do them justice, but these are the most flattering jeans i have ever had, make my bum look half the size ! ( no mean feat, i can tell you! )

am impressed !

oooh - bootylicious Lulu!

Tottie32 Tue 11-Sep-07 13:19:56

like them... i usually make my bum look half the size by wearing a longer top....

2% elastane is always good to.

and they are good price

what are they like on the thighs? I have (comparatively) small hips but mahoosive thunder thighs so can rarely get jeans past my kness unless I buy a couple of sizes too big and belt up tight?

lulumama Tue 11-Sep-07 13:22:39

thanks ruby !! grin

they are fab tottie

bewilderbeast.. they are quite fitted on the thigh, but there is a bit of stretch to them.. one size bigger might be better ..

Where do they sit lulu? Are they on the waist? I have some really lovely Dotty P jeans that fit nicely on my extensive derriere, but they are low-ish rise and my muffin ain't a pretty picture!

lulumama Tue 11-Sep-07 13:28:35

just below the waist, but not quite a hipster

smugmumofboys Tue 11-Sep-07 13:30:14

Thank you.

lulumama Tue 11-Sep-07 13:31:12

Tottie32 Tue 11-Sep-07 13:34:00

do you buy in store?

lulumama Tue 11-Sep-07 13:35:43

i did, i like to try , as i seem to wear a different size in every clothes shop

Tottie32 Tue 11-Sep-07 13:36:52

and me have to try before i leave the shop..

although did buy a dp coat online last week, bit safer than jeans

Are they reallyt hat good? I'm a bit hmm about Evans stuff: a lot of their trousers fit me wonderfully in the changing room, but by the time I've worn them for a couple of hours they've stretched and give me a ghastly case of Builder's Bum.

I couldn't keep up with the LOs on the way to school this morning, as I was clutching the buggy with one hand and my waistband with the other!

lulumama Tue 11-Sep-07 13:49:11

have never bought any jeans from here before, but as they come with a belt, you won;t have to hold them up !!

heifer Tue 11-Sep-07 13:49:50

I spent hours in town yesterday whilst DD was at preschool looking for a pair of jean..

Not sure if I tried those ones on or not..

But didn't find any that were just right..

All I want is a nice pair of jeans that are above the tummy (you know the old fashioned type) that aren't really really flared and that do in a short arse lengh..

Surely not too hard... oh yes it is

Ended up ordering online last night and hoping that they are ok...

Birdly Tue 11-Sep-07 13:58:33

PrettyCandles - agree with you completely about Evans!

I bought a lovely pair of cropped jeans earlier this year, and they fitted me fine in the changing room, but after I'd been wearing them for about an hour they'd stretched massively on the waist and I could take them off easily without undoing them! shock I took them back to the shop, explained what had happened and asked for a refund - they didn't bat an eyelid. I think it must be a common problem!

Lulu - I'm a different size in every shop, too. It makes it impossible to buy online and is a right pain in the (large) derriere! grin The worst offenders are Tesco - I can be any one of 4 sizes in their shop alone! hmm

<<heif..have added pics on FB!>>

Heifer, passing through M&S the other day, I saw jeans labeled as sitting on the natural waistline. Haven't had a proper look at them, though.

The trouble with belts on below-the-waist trousers is that they're sitting on the widest part, and hav to b hauled in uncomfortably - and unattractively - tightly to have any effect. And my post-babies empty handbag of a belly doesn't help either!
