like I don't know, on my waist or something, after all there must be a reason why my waist goes in

whats with all the feckin' hipsters absolutely everywhere with no sodding choice

hipsters only look good on slim / teenagers

I want to feel comfortable in my jeans

thats a difficult one, all the styles seem to be hipsters etc, you could try a home shopping catalogue.

I've made the mistake of trying to fit my lardy stomach into hipsters-in fact I am sitting here with a pair on now because can't be botherd to iron anything and thinking how bloody uncomfortable I am!


So,no,I don't think you are old-just in need of some comfort like me!

I agree the per una ones are good (but definitely try them on because I had to get the ones for people with short legs and I'm 5'6''!). Also found that the sizing is very generous round the waist - I'm a standard 12 and there's easily another inch around the waist.

Also, I got a pair from Tescos which hardly cost anything and are incredibly comfortable - I can easily tuck my tummy flab under the top of the jeans (iyswim).

Waist-holding ones cause tummybulging, IMO.

Also my waist has never returned to its pre-baby indentation
