I've had some miss sixty ones for 3 years, but I can't get into them since dd.
Mine always wear out now, must spend too much time on my knees!

Why ??????????? can't afford new jeans and new undies

About 5 yaesr old but I haven't worn them for 3.5 years since I got pregnant. They're just so sexy and evocative that I can't part with them despite knowing that I'll never get my hips into them again.

Since early pg for me, so about 3 years... But they were nicked off Psycho, so maybe 3 1/2

Gawd, those jeans with long waists are horrendous.

its the law - all jeans should be hipster type. no waist huggers

apparently boot cut are out, so drainpipes will be back soon

You get frightening looking people in both though... either the bulging held in tummy in the nipple covering type, or the lovely bulge over the top of the hipsters (and the red thong with holes in on women who REALLY shouldn't be wearing them!!!)

You can tell I live in a classy area!

Actually i do need new jeans.

My oldest jeans are from when I was 12, still love them! Although when I was 12 wasn't really that long ago lol! 6 years..

I'm toyig with the idea of crpooed jeans with long spindly boots. They look great on some and horribly fashion-victimy on others. I'm afraid I will fall into the second category

My legs just look a really odd length in the cropped ones...

cod - not the British summer

NomDePlume Mon 11-Apr-05 16:09:49

Summer in the Midlands though, Coddy, hardly the French Riviera

I've got the hipster bulges too ... tend to wear longer tops to hide em a bit though.
