I normally wear next skinny Jeans in the lift, shape range. Needed to buy some new ones and they aren’t skinny round the ankles anymore! Tried the waist enhancer ones and they aren’t much better. They are quite uncomfortable. They are skinny but feel baggy?

I need a pair that are actual jeans that hold their shape and don’t sag at the knees?? I live in skinny jeans! Can anyone help!?

DD wears M&S petite skinny. She stockpiles them in case they stop wearing them.

They are also a magic fit/lift shape style. Cost about £25 iirc.

Hmmm haven’t looked at m&s before.... it always feels a bit ‘old’! grin I’ll have a look at those? Thanks

Topshop petite Jamie jeans. You're welcome smile

Haven’t shopped in top shop for years as I think it’s ME that’s too old grin can’t win! What are they like then @EdithHope ?

I like the waist of the next lift, slim and shape, slightly higher than average but not ‘high’ waisted. They are the perfect length on me too and don’t sag at all and are tight all the way down!

How petite are you? My daughter is 5"1 and a tiny size 6, she has just bought four pairs in different styles from ASOS and they all fit perfectly.

I’m 5’2. Once lockdown is lifted I’ll be happy to order loads of new ones and can try them and send them back. At the moment I am a SP with kids on the vulnerable list so can’t go returning lots of parcels just now!

Top shop ones are currently on sale/::

I'm petite. Had success with Gap and M&S. Not tried ASOS petite jeans but other petite stuff from them has been ok so would give them a go.

The M&S ones they do in loads of colourways too not just denim.

Asos ...

I love the M&S petite skinnies.

Wonderingwhyme Thu 30-Apr-20 11:00:59

Iv never got on with any style of gap, always end up with it gaping at the back and just don’t suit me.

I’ll have a look at the others, thanks.

I always buy Boden petite skinny jeans. Hold their shape, wash and wear well. 20% off with F9G6. They are expensive but I'm still wearing Boden trousers that are over 12 years old.

Wonderingwhyme Thu 30-Apr-20 11:06:11

Hmm I don’t own anything by Boden as it isn’t my style but skinnies are skinnies! Thanks will check those out too.

They are amazing quality . I have jeans by lots of people but they win hands down

Tesco have some skinny lift and shape jeans in at the moment. I had a quick look at them the other day when I was in food shopping and (I’m looking for a non skinny jean version just now). I didn’t look specifically but I know the majority of their jeans come in short, regular and long length so might help if you need petite. Only drawback is they no longer sell clothes online so you would need to visit an actual Tesco store that has a clothing department.

Sooverthemill Thu 30-Apr-20 11:43:19

@thanksforallthefish next sell some F&F tesco clothes

I've had several pairs of Topshop Jamie jeans, they're high rise and retain a good fit, no baggy knees IMHO. They have Leigh ones which also look lovely but supposedly low rise (though they look quite high on the model to me!)

I've recently discovered matalan petite jeans and they are really cheap and actually tight around my ankles, genuinely petite too xx

Jellybott Fri 01-May-20 12:25:57

I've not tried them yet, but I recently found out H&m do a petite range (mostly jeans/trousers). Can't wait to give them a go!

Top shop Jamie Petite here too... I have loads... I'm 55 so your never too old
Perfect fit and just enough stretch so they're supportive

J Crew petite toothpick jeans are amazing! They have magic pockets to smooth you out, keep there shape and are made for petite sizes. Whenever I wear mine someone always says ‘ I like your jeans’!

I get my jeans from New Look and Primark. I'm just over 5ft and wear 30 inch inside leg but New Look does have a petite range aswell.

Thatbitchcarolebaskin Wed 06-May-20 10:28:19

I agree with the ASOS petite range. I’m 5’1 and an 8/10 (10 now since lock down haha) and I’ve had a fair bit of success with ASOS

I used to have issue with the massive crotch on their jeans but they seem to have changed their pattern
