To get super irritated by the endless search for decent jeans in ' fashionable' high street shops

I'd like a pair of good quality, skinny/slim fit, dark wash jeans.
I don't want a super high waist that gives me camel toe, I don't want baggy crotch, I don't want a jegging that will stretch out of shape within three wears, I don't want 90s fit that gives you an elephant bum, I don't want ripped knees, embroidered flowers, diamanté bits or ankle grazers, I don't want to pay £60, I don't want stone wash or acid wash or yellow or burn out or aztec print, I don't want poor sizing or tiny pockets that make your bum look weird, I don't want 90% lycra, I don't want them to be called Alice or Luella or fucking Tabitha when it bears no relation to the fit of the jean, and most of all I'd like to know what my size is without having to try on three different sizes in each style because it's bloody exhausting.
The search continues....

I know what you said about jeggings but next do dark denim ones at about £24 a pair which are awesome- quite thick material so more like skinny jeans really, super flattering. I have 2 pairs that I wear constantly. They don't go baggy after kneeling down with kids all day and they are really comfy. Hands down best jeans I have ever had.

Jane Norman jeans are the one for me. You can still get them online (I'm not sure if they still trade in debenhams) but they're some of the best I've had. Keep their shape and wash well. Although I'm currently made up as I was rooting through the loft and found a topshop pair I bought at 17 and they fit!!! I've worn them three times this week hahas!

I was recommended Uniglo but not impressed (maybe it is my shape)
my best buys - firetrap skinny or H&M sqin (sp.)
being short |I find the 'hang on your hips' jeans have to be converted to a 'fit on your waist' jeans via a belt but it works.
jeans I do not like - M&S, anything made of thick denim, Next, anything with embroidery, sparkles, rips, zips at the ankle
found Matalan jeans in the sale half price - their acid wash skinnies - for £7 and they are fantastic as they are thin material and fit more or less my waist
