Where can you buy jeans by waist and length, not just size 8,10 etc? Other than topshop, that's already on my list.

Do they do it in inches/cms or just long, normal and short?

next - petite, regular or long. However bear in mind i'm only 5ft (legs long in relation to overall height) and i'm a regular so guess they come up short.

hmm, I really need sizes in inches. I'm always between sizes when they just have 3, too tall for petite and too short for normal. And too lazy to get my jeans turned up!

Gapstar, Levi's and Diesel I think

what exact size are you looking for? I have tons of clothes I've just started to Ebay (closing my shop at Xmas sad) I can take a look and see if I have any the right measurements.

traceybath Sat 04-Oct-08 20:43:20

well next regular may be ok then as they're definitely shorter than normal regular length - however i do wear heels!

thanks, just found some nice levis, but a bit expensive for me.

Wow - you are tiny, just checked and none that small apart from crops! Sorry I can't help.

beansmum Sat 04-Oct-08 21:16:51

I'm just short, and the fat is quite well spread out!

BHS do them, think the range is called "universal", they do those measurements.

Think asda have started to do leg lengths as measured but AFAIK the waist sizes are still as 8/10/12 etc

gigglewitch Sat 04-Oct-08 21:25:56

bhs jeans n stuff when i got mine, also marked were waist sizes. the 8 that i got was also marked as 26".

gigglewitch Sat 04-Oct-08 21:27:44

other than that, i just wandered in here to say in my usual silly fashion...
erm, why do you want two pairs of jeans, have you got two pairs of legs hmm


beansmum Sat 04-Oct-08 21:31:47

Thanks, I'll try there. I need to know exactly where I'm going before I attempt any shopping with ds in tow!

I don't have two pairs of legs, but I like to change my clothes occasionallygrin

gigglewitch Sat 04-Oct-08 21:39:02

look George at asda - click the sizing guide. would 8 reg be it?

beansmum Sun 05-Oct-08 11:42:08

I just bought two pairs of the jeans I already have on ebay. People will think I never change my clothes but I don't care!
