Jeans to wear with boots

Any recommendations? I know there have been countless threads about jeans but I'm looking for ones that go well inside boots and cover the dreaded post-baby muffin top (5 months post-natal tummy and 3 dcs so not so good at the moment!). I've looked online but they all seem to be low-rise. I live in the sticks so buy online only. I have straight leg jeans but they are still bulkier than I'd like. And less than £50 as I hope to look the flab when I stop breastfeeding.

Lose the flab I mean

You need skinnies, with a higher rise. Don't try and stuff anything bigger in the leg than that into a boot. Do Marks do anything along those lines?

narrow leg jeans from gap or anywhwree really, and spanx or own brand equivalent to suck in the tummy.
my advice is go for 2 sizes bigger than size chart says for day to day wear... or you'll be walking around with permanent gas retention trouble and resultant tummy ache (or is that just me?? lol)
seven for all mankind are a v nicely shaped jean ime

So many responses so quickly - thank you!! Uniqlo are great but the skinnies are low-rise, I'd already investigated, but thank you for the suggestion ggirl. I think I need an 8-9'' plus rise to deal with muffin spillage. Maidamess, wow these could be just the thing at £15 - thank you!

Do Dorothy Perkins jeans come up big or small?

Next have some high waisted jeans that don't look like high waisted ones once they are on - ie you don't show off the high waist bit like Cheryl Cole or Coleen Rooney and haven't got v wide bottoms!

Think they are 20 pounds and come in v dark blue or normal blue wash.
here or here

A lot better in RL than the pictures - they made my muffin top disappear!
