The £20 pair of wide leg jeans Mumsnetters are raving about

They're the latest must-have style, and incredible value at only £20. We looked more closely at Tu's wildly popular wide-leg jeans to see if they're really as good as Mumsnetters say...

We're always keeping an eye on the Style and beauty board to note down your recommendations so, naturally, we spotted the thread by Mumsnetter Delait291, who came to tell everyone about her latest bargain - these wide leg jeans from Tu at Sainsbury's, which retail at a staggering £20.

Just wanted to share this find. From Sainsbury, only £20. I'm 5ft 2 and the regular are the perfect length when worn with trainers. No gaping at the back of the waist, give my bum a nice shape and then skim over the thighs. I'm a size 12. I really love them and I've had lots of compliments, got them in both colours. I've been clinging onto my skinnys for dear life. Finally feel like I've caught up.

It wasn't long before more of you took to the thread to sing the praises of the on-trend denims, with many of you confessing to a serious Sainsbury's jeans habit.

They're brilliant! I wear mine at least 3 times a week (5ft4 and wear regular leg with platform Converse).

As the week progressed we watched as heaps of you took the plunge and bought a pair for yourselves to see what all the fuss was about, and you weren't disappointed!

OP thank you for recommending these. As a 5 ft 2 size 12 I ordered them, they arrived today and fit perfectly!

So, what is it about these bestselling bottoms that you all love so much? Well, firstly it seems that the denim itself is particularly soft, which is always a must. Plus, the shape is particularly flattering - with a tummy-tucking high waist to keep everything firmly in place.

They also come in different leg lengths that is ideal for ensuring the perfect fit, and then there's that all-important price point, which is a budget-busting £20, low enough to be within reach of most.

We'll let the last word go to Puppylucky who spoke for us all when she wisely came up with a new Mumsnet mantra:

Just bought and loved them. Nothing like a new jeans shape to perk you up!

The death knell for skinnies? Only time will tell...!

Just picked mine up - love them! 😍 Having worn skinnies for years, a wide leg jean is different but I quite like them flapping around my legs 😁
