i always used to fit wallis jeans well but i have been a lot less mobile due to illness and my bums got smaller while my middle's got bigger. I can't get about too much to try things on so i wondered if anybody could recommend jeans that suit apple shaped bods

i would say in general go for bootleg or wide legged to balance wide midriff

otherwise you (we) risk resembling a barrel on matchsticks grin wink

i found some in monsoon i think - lewt me go and look for a link...

i know what you mean about low rise jeans.....i don't look like i have a muffin top but a whole cottage loaf in them!

501s are the best jeans, i've always loved them

Tutter Sun 23-Sep-07 21:41:36

me too

wore them constantly from age 19ish to age 26ish

no idea why i stopped

mens fitted me better than womens (i have thick waist, Flat Arse and slim legs)

never worn 501s always been a bit more pear shaped until now...

southeastastra Sun 23-Sep-07 22:02:34

i still wear 501s, you have to hunt them out but they're still around.

SEA I envy your slim legs! I just have pins with quite chunky thighs compared to my flat bum
