I've recently lost a lot of my baby weight and would love to get a decent pair of jeans - all the ones I've had in later years seem to go baggy and lose their shape. Can anyone suggest any good jeans that keep their shape while wearing and after washing, look really good and don't cost the earth? (moon on a stick anyone?!!)
I think I could spend up to £45 but less would be better of course!
I've got the same problem - except I haven't lost my baby weight yet and I just want a pair of jeans to fit my new, slightly larger, bum! I'm not going to worry about losing weight until I stop breastfeeding. I've tried Next and River Island - but although they seem to fit in the shop, size 14s soon go too baggy but I can't do a size 12 up round my mummy tummy!! I will try TKMaxx though, BodenGroupie - your name suggests we are on the same wavelength!!!
Thanks for the suggestions - have a Top Shop and Oasis nearby which I can try - TK Maxx sounds worth a trip. Agree about not trying to lose the baby weight while breastfeeding - my DS2 is 20 mths old and my extra weight was from DS1 who's nearly 5. It's very liberating! Haven't seen any with buttons lately but I have a couple of pairs of 501's from my twenties which I can nearly get into again....do they still do button flys?
SJM - that's exactly the problem I've been experiencing - and so don't want to waste anyone dosh.
River Island is brilliant at the moment, loads of jeans styles and best of all they stock a short leg which is a godsend for me!
I bought a pair of 'mid wash' skinny flares (ie skinny at the top, flare at bottom) and if I say it myself they look great. Other half says they make me look taller!
They cost about £37. I noticed Next has a great range too and mostly about £22 - £28.
I've found TK Maxx only any good for tiny or huge sizes. It's like looking for a needle in a haystack in there. Love what Alan Carr said: 'I saw a guy in TK Maxx rub amphetamines on his gums before flicking through those racks'
