Have just bought a pair of ' boyfriend' jeans ( Next ) . I am often in between conventional sizes . The present 16 bury me and the new 14 are not a bad fit but feel a bit tight. I know that they will give with wear but is there anything I can do to speed the process? I have become very used to wearing slouch fit - can be mistaken for a teenage boy ! I have a very old ( size 12 ) pair that I can still fit into on a good day - sorry make that a very good day ! but my shape changes on a day to day basis - sigh !
