After a long day at Next, M&S, BHS, New Look and TU I am fed up. DD needs a new pair of comfy jeans but nothing seems to fit, are all jeans now designed to fasten over the widest bit of your tummy and cause max. discomfort, slide down and be too short to pull up, please tell me I am not the only one with this problem.

No my DD aged 9 hasn't worn jeans for years because of this, we finally found a pair in John Lewis that she likes but they still don't look comfortable.

Mine have always worn soft cargo trousers with a bit of elastic in the waist to help with this plus the cotton is softer I think.

No, it's a nightmare. Coupled with the fact that dd wants jeans with pretty embroidery on them like you get for 5year olds too. It's horrible, I tell you, HORRIBLE

grin Give up.

We also have the same problem, but have just brought a pair from Monsoon in the sale which she loves and fits nicely and also a pair from TX Maxx, but we looked for what seemed a lifetime.

it takes forever to find a decent pair that fit and are comfortable.

i have real trouble finding jeans to fit dd, she's 7 and is big for her age. my mum bought her a pair of skinny jeans at christmas and it all ended in tears because she couldn't get them on.

Gap have a range of styles/fits and elastic in waist even for older kids

my elder 2 dds who are skinny wear jeans from either Gap or Boden. other jeans that we have tried are usually a bit baggy for them round the hips/bottom, even if they have the adjustable waistbands.

Boden skinny jeans look fab imo and last for ages (they are handed down through my 3 dds).

Lucykate Monsoon seem generous, my dd had a pair (they went missing after I lent them to one of her friends, who had an accident). They were supposed to be skinny, but were baggy on dd, and way too long (I bought her age 7, she was 8 a few months ago), they have an adjustable waist too.

They were the only jeans my dd had, bought her a cheap replacement pair from Tesco, but they are not comfortable.

Gap works for dd. They have a 'slim' fit for slender girls, and other designs for other bodies. As lucysmum says, all have adjustable waists.
