Where to buy jeans?

    From experience, I know that finding a pair of jeans is a nightmare, and exhausting taking them on and off in hot, sweaty changing rooms! I plan on shopping today for a night out tonight, so catalogues are not an option. I want to be able to dress them up, but also down for everyday wear.
    I want a pair that are suitable for my size 16 (- ish) figure that are flattering and fashionable (I am over 40). They must also not be really expensive.
    Can anyone recommend a shop to try, or even better a pair of jeans which might be suitable? Thanks in advance.

    I get mine from Per Una - they actually fit and stay up without a belt!
     
  4. I find Yours or, weirdly, Sainsburys are good for jeans

    I love Per Una but our M&S here is tiny so I doubt they would have anything much. I'll look though. Thanks!
     
  6. Next are excellent-lots of different 'cuts' as well

    Thanks for the replies [​IMG]. Our M&S here is tiny, so Per Una is probably not an option unfortunately. What/where is 'Yours'?
     
  8. Next jeans are really good and provide a great fit with no gaps around the waist if you happen to have a curvy bum.

    Another vote for Next here. The styles and cuts are very different so I always try on about 5 different pairs.

    I got a well-fitting, cheap pair from Sainsbury's but the material isn't very good quality.
    Get a pair with Lycra if you want a pair that will keep its shape.

    Per una
    Roma fit - they sit on your waist nicely. Excellent jeans.
     
  13. New Look are really reasonable and I find they fit well. Have also bought Primark jeans which I've liked x

    Another vote for Per Una here but for a cheaper version which also seem to fit nicely, try Red Herring. in Debenhams. Also John Rocha jeans are worth a look.
     
  15. Buy online and collect from your local store. You can try them on and give them straight back if the fit isn't right.

    My local store won't take them back if they don't sell that style - which is why I'd be ordering from them in the first place. I got very irritated.....

    I've experienced the same. It is pretty annoying.
