I have been round the shops this morning and haven't been succesful . I am size 10 and short but I have access to a fab tailor so that isn't an issue. I want dark denim bootcut jeans is it that much to ask? anyone had got any?

I live and die in my M&S ones... went to buy more in a smaller size (hurray!) but they dont make dark ones anymore hmm so had to buy them off ebay!

Topshop do some good ones.

hana Sun 24-Aug-08 15:29:46

second |Gap long and lean ones

chapstickchick Sun 24-Aug-08 15:34:57

my fave ones are new look lol <im a cheapskate>

I like New Look jeans - Tesco do some decent ones for about £10 too.

I am a size 8-10 petite and I love the Next high rise ones (I'm too pear shaped for hipsters!)

widgypog Sun 24-Aug-08 15:43:50

tried gap long and lean..they made me look neither!!
which jeans do you have sidge?

BBBee Sun 24-Aug-08 15:44:36

if you are in any way pear - I mean slim of waist and curve of hip - go for monsoon

I'm 5"1 and a 10 and love New Look for jeans.

OllieWollieWoo Sun 24-Aug-08 15:48:24

Just brought some lovely dark ones from Next - but also tried the high rise ones mentioned by Sidge - both great. Was v surprised as they never used to be the right shape for Next jeans but think they may have changed there standard measurements or soemthing cos now they fit realy well - and only 20 quid! May be worth a try on if you haven't been recently???

another vote for new look here too.

never got on with next before so maybe worth a llok i found some lovely ones but only an 8 left and they were snug!
i am an hourglass shape so round bottom ..never tried monsoon..hmm

mustrunmore Sun 24-Aug-08 16:01:08

New Look just dont deem to fit me now; used to love them hmm

What I'd love is some really extreme kickflares. Got some from River Island, but want more flare!!

badgermonkey Sun 24-Aug-08 16:07:26

Oh yes, I got a pair of Next bootcuts from eBay (tags still on so fairly new range) and they fitted perfectly - I fully expect to have to relist jeans, tbh, as they're so tricky to get the fit right.

Jewelsandgems Sun 24-Aug-08 16:11:09

Oasis for me

Sidge Sun 24-Aug-08 16:12:50

I think these are the ones I have - but it might be these though. I got mine last year and I think they've changed the stitching but the shape looks the same. Mine were only 20 quid too.

OllieWollieWoo Sun 24-Aug-08 16:17:04

Yep Sidge - mine are the ones in first link. V dark indigo wash - looks nice with a pair of heels - now I only have to search for the perfect 'going out in the winter' top - but thats a whole different thread!

RipMacWinkle Sun 24-Aug-08 17:36:44

I have GAP long and lean but my favourites are from Dorothy PErkins short arse dept. Lovely and dark with a bit of lycra to suck it all in. Perfect wink

widgypog Sun 24-Aug-08 17:49:25

thanks sidge will look into those

tortoiseSHELL Sun 24-Aug-08 17:51:03

I like M&S Per Una ones.

nappyaddict Sun 24-Aug-08 22:57:06

i had some dorothy perkins ones and found after a few washes they lost their shape and became very baggy. maybe they have changed them though. i got them last october time i think.

I bought Boden's "skinny bootcut" jeans in dark indigo last winter and loved them. Wore them 'til bump got too big. Lookimg forward to wearing them agai when bump in gone. They have similar bootcut ones this year, although not Skinny.
