Please recommend me some jeans

I am 5 feet 9 and a size 10 - 12, straight up and down, no curves (angry). Gap Long and Lean suited me half a stone ago, but my weight gain since giving up breastfeeding means I can no longer fit into them without major back pain.

Can anyone recommend some cheap bootleg jeans that will suit my height and body shape?

Many thanks

How about some high waisted ones? May create a waist for you, and are very fashionable right now. Principles have some like this:

principles wide legged high waisted jeans

Or, sounds like you would look excellent in skinny jeans, these are high waisted: and topshop do a longer length

I am a similar size to you and am wearing these.

Or bootcut if you'd rather.

I find Topshop are much more aherm <<whispers>> generous in their cut than Gap. Good for that post pg bod. grin
