There are some very large mothers at DS's school who waddle along in skinny jeans and look utterly ridiculous. I'm by no means skinny myself, but they actually look pained and have trouble walking. Put it this way - if you're going to have the seam marks embedded and etched onto your legs for weeks after wearing them, you should probably avoid them.
Yes Mrsmaidamess, you don't have to be Kate Moss/Jodie Kidd, but if you have chunky legs, especially thighs/knees, skinny jeans (and footless tights/leggings with short skirts) are a bog no-no! Size is relative, as KingROlo says, I am 5'6" and a size 12, but my thighs are too big for skinny jeans, but I look great in boot cut jeans, so it's not about what dress size you are, but how you are built.
And whilst we are on the subject, low-rise skinny jeans; if there's a better recipe for carrot legs and muffin tops I don't know it!!!! shudder
