As someone who wore them the fisrt time around, I can only say nooooooooooooooo

They make your bum look huge (and I was a skinny size 6-8)

I wear high waisted trousers and jeans for comfort not for style. They just seem to stay in place rather than giving me a muffin top.

I would NEVER wear them with anything tucked in or too short. and I don't understand high waisted skinny jeans!

I LOVE high waisted jeans and am SO pleased that they're back! I've just never felt comfortable in anything else, and personally I also think that low waists only look good on REALLY skinny women - any hint of a muffin top, yuck!!! Like woodenchair, I don't wear them with anything tucked in - but then I think low-waisted jeans look ridiculous with anything tucked in too. I also generally avoid short tops anyway, because I have a long body.

I'm a tall size 14 and have just got myself a pair of high waisted skinny jeans, and I've never had so many compliments on a pair of jeans before!

My2Monkeys, if you don't mind saying, where did you get them from?

LetThemEatCake Sun 10-Aug-08 20:36:37

where did you get them My2Monkeys?

these were wide legged ones that I tried on, almost sailor style

i love my topshop ones. they give me a waist. bring back waists!

can you get high waisted jeans that aren;t skinny jeans thgouh? i want high waisted boyfriend style jeans. <pouts>

I can honestly say that apart from a few heavily styled celebrities in magazines, I haven't seen anyone in RL looking good in them. They just look a bit comical. And if you aren't very thin they look worse than comical.

LetThemEatCake Sun 10-Aug-08 20:38:49

like these SirDigby?

SirDigbyChickenCaesar Sun 10-Aug-08 20:40:03

grin yay! thank you! (really should have actually looked for some before i pouted i guess!)

southeastastra Sun 10-Aug-08 20:41:38

i have some next slouch jeans that you can hoik up to waist level with a belt, they're comfy

my favs are still levi 501s

LetThemEatCake Sun 10-Aug-08 20:45:23

a bit of a pout ever hurt anyone - practically de rigeur with an oh-so-fashionable high-waisted jean!!! Pout away!

uniqlo have some but haven't tried yet, will have a go this week and report back.

i am very short in body though, so a normal pair of hipsters are at my waist (or where it might be if i actually went in at all in the middle)

southeastastra Sun 10-Aug-08 20:49:14

i do find that alot of 'high waisted' just means normal waist nowadays

MrsMattie Sun 10-Aug-08 20:51:01

Normal waist = fine. It's just those really high waisted, cinched in ones with wide legs I particularly dislike. They don't look good on anyone apart from Kate Moss, and even she looks a bit like a 1970s Blue Peter presenter in them. And if you got an arse and thighs? Forget it.

SirDigbyChickenCaesar Sun 10-Aug-08 21:03:25

i've got a really high waist (well, if i had a waist it would be high...) so i will try some and see how they work out.

My2Monkeys Sun 10-Aug-08 21:53:57

Sorry Heated and LTEC, I got them in Belgium, visiting a friend for the weekend - wish I'd got more than one pair now!!!
