Boyfriend style jeggings? Do they exist or can you find me something similar?

So I’m hoping the lovely ladies here in style and beauty can help me find if boyfriend style jeggings exist or something similar.

I can’t wear normal jeans as after having 3 kids I’ve got a bit of a belly and I always find the button digs in and hurts Sad so I prefer to wear jeggings because of the elasticated waist.

All the jeggings I’ve had are skinny leg or very slim leg and I’d like something a bit looser in the leg. I prefer a higher rise jeans and I always find with low rise jeans I find I’m always pulling them up because they fall off my big bum.

If they do exist I’d need them in a 16 short but I can have them taken up in I need to. I also prefer black and darker wash jeans but honestly if they fit well enough I could do other colours too.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.Smile

Cotton traders has them in looser fits, mostly seem to be listed as "pull on" rather than jeggings.

I think by definition jegging means a jean style legging, so if you're using jegging as a search word you will only find skinny styles.

Pull on jeans are probably more what you mean, like the PP suggested at Cotton Traders. To be honest, when I searched the only places that seem to stock elasticated wider leg jeans are the more errr, practical, and less stylish end of the clothing market. (I hesitate to say for the more mature market, but lets say they often crop up in those sunday supplement pull out mags)

If you're looking for something a bit more stylish but still comfortable, how about pull on ponte or gaberdine fabric trousers, or even heavy weight jersey with a slim or tapered leg? There are plenty about in Next, Cos, and Toast do some great high waisted pull on trousers if you have the budget for them.

Thank you. I hadn’t thought about different wording. Pull ons definitely makes sense. I’ll have a look.

Yes thank you MrsMariaPolouvicka that’s what I was finding and I was struggling to figure out the correct terminology for what I wanted. Yes I’m looking for something a bit more stylish than what you find in those Sunday supplements. Lol.
I find now I’m 31 with 3 kids I still want to look fashionable (I hope) but comfort is a much higher priority now. I’m finding it can be very hard to find clothes which fit the bill.

Yeah, I just can't envisage anything remotely fashionable about elasticated wider leg jeans, sorry!

I really think redefining your look to incorporate casual pull on trousers would be a lot more stylish. I came back on to say I'm wearing these today:

I realise Cos is a marmite brand for many, and you definitely need to look beyond the online styling, but these trousers are a heavy jersey, pull on, I'm wearing today with a hoodie and trainers, but also wear them to work with a thin knit crew neck jumper and loafers. They are so versatile. If you're short, they probably won't be croppped on you though.

These are the Toast ones, I realise very ££ but they come in a range of neutral colours and would again look great with sweats or knits, trainers, smart shoes and still be comfortable

Sounds like you want joggers...

Thanks MrsMariaPolouvicka maybe you’re right and I need to have a rethink about my look. Thanks for the suggestions.

Lol. No zozozoo I’m not looking for joggers. I wanted something I could dress up or down like jeans or trousers rather then joggers. But thanks anyway.

M&S had a range of tapered pull on trousers new in for Autumn. I only had a quick look as i was rushing but there were quite a few different prints and fabrics.

ASOS has some black jersey peg trousers for £16 in both regular and petite (and possibly tall, I have no reason to look...).

Uniqlo may also have some and H&M also do. Not seen any of them
In the flesh yet so no idea re quality but may be worth a look?

I think zozozoo probably means the style of trousers called joggers rather than sweatpants, this kind of thing:

Lucy and yak do elasticated trousers that might work. They are high waisted and look good rolled up.

This sort of thing...

Boyfriend style jeggings? Do they exist or can you find me something similar?

Check out maternity jeans.

I had a pair from next that were brilliant. Relaxed legs, with an elastic band that was wide, but not the huge "over the belly/bump" type of thing.

They were actually no good for wearing once I hit 4months as the band kept folding over, but were great for years after I had DC.

I really like the look of the bootcut ones from jdwilliams. I’m currently deciding whether to buy those or the pull on jeans from cotton traders. Thanks you for everyone who contributed.

Oh and thank you allpizzasgreatandsmall I didn’t know about those style of trousers. I had wrongly assumed zozozoo meant jogging bottoms/sweatpants.

I have ordered a pair of the dark wash ones to wear with converse/Birkenstock. For a short apple they look ideal. I feel the need for a change from skinnies/ rolled up straight legs.

Will report back.
