NOT like this tight style
and the one i like is not washed as it seems int he pic

overmydeadbody Wed 21-Oct-09 16:16:02

I agree

I never shop in Next but for some reason was compelled to go in there and buy their jeggings and they are great. And unlike most of their stuff they are not too big for me.

overmydeadbody Wed 21-Oct-09 16:16:22

lol at that's nice dear

VictoriousSponge Wed 21-Oct-09 16:16:37

i got the 12. not 14

glad i did so

overmydeadbody Wed 21-Oct-09 16:18:13

Their sizes are always big. Usually their size 8 trousers are too big for me but these fit.

brimfull Wed 21-Oct-09 16:18:17

christ! they go up to a size 22

you so have the legs for those-bitch!

Best one I found is ASOS (may be biased by 25% off code)

VictoriousSponge Wed 21-Oct-09 16:20:39

brimfull Wed 21-Oct-09 16:21:12

did they think you were ultra funky teach

I had to click on this to find out what a jegging was.

Now I know.

Sorry but denim leggings make me go all shivery, not sure why. Even on model-thin people. They are just wrong in my book - like city shorts.

VictoriousSponge Wed 21-Oct-09 16:23:08

nah... fail to be impressed by much

doggiesayswoof Wed 21-Oct-09 16:27:20

I have taken a stance against the thin v tight jeggings like the ones in the second link - but I like those a lot. Back pockets eh?

Could be tempted.

Need long tops though? Mid thigh or thereabouts?

I am worried by the young people I've seen with the arse of their leggings/jeggings showing. Even on an 18yo that doesn't look too good.

VictoriousSponge Wed 21-Oct-09 16:28:11

yes but even if hte top showed( elastic wasitband ecxepting) the top isnt bad

Aubergines Wed 21-Oct-09 16:51:45

The problem with jeggings, and all ultra-skinny jeans, is that they look ATROCIOUS if you are over a size 10.

Too few women appreciate this fact.

notwavingjustironing Wed 21-Oct-09 16:53:42

Jeggings = hideous style crime. No amount of nice material can convince me otherwise.

doggiesayswoof Wed 21-Oct-09 16:55:35

No it depends on your legs. I am a size 12/14 but ok in leggings with boots if the top is the right length.

Have also seen bigger women look ok in leggings and slimmer women look tragic in them because outfit as a whole is crap or whatever

Dress to your strengths, not your size I say.

Aubergines Wed 21-Oct-09 17:01:31

But its not just about the legs. Its the leg/tummy ratio. You can have the best legs in the world but if your tummy is big then jeggings will make you look like a lolly-pop.

VictoriousSponge Wed 21-Oct-09 17:02:16

yes ditto
12 14 wiht long legs
you leg enviers you

VictoriousSponge Wed 21-Oct-09 17:03:29

bimey auberige you are an old timer...

VictoriousSponge Wed 21-Oct-09 17:03:45

and shit i just bolded

waaaaaah what is happeneing

Aubergines Wed 21-Oct-09 17:06:47

am i?
well i am actually, but not under this name.

i am sorry to say that I cannot envisage any shaped women who is an overall size 12/14, looking great in jeggings.

i long for this trend to pass.
