Posting here for more traffic.

I went out to the shops all ready to buy myself new jeans. I do have many pairs but wanted some new ones. It has been a while since I bought some. I don't wear skinnys' as I don't have skinny legs.
I wear straight legs.
I went into Guess and I found their jeans so thin! I don't think I would get much wear out of it.

What jeans do you wear?
Where did you buy them from?

I bought two new pairs late last year, Levi's Curve ID in bootcut and NYDJ in straight leg.

Happy with both of them.

GAP jeans I find really comfortable, soft and a very flattering fit.

Levis and Target jeans.  Yep, big difference in price.  Target ones seem to be wearing well though.

I'm a cheap-skate so I buy JeansWest as they have 2 pair for $99. Very comfy. I think I have a pair of bootcut and a pair of relazed bootcut and some skinny legs to wear with boots.

I've discovered that Katies jeans are great for the post baby body. They have a bit more room in the hips than most without looking like baggy, fat lady pants.

I used to live in Jeanswest jeans but they changed their styles and discountinued mine  cry1.gif

I buy Jeans West jeans in short length from their website. I have never been able to buy a pair of jeans and not pay to get inches taken off the bottom so i was happy to discover they have a short range on their website.

I bought a pair of Target jeans. everytime I wear them I get compliments from work colleagues.

I find they wear out pretty quicky (compared to other jeans I have had in the past) but they are cheap enough to replace as often as needed.

I get mine custom fit through http://www.makeyourownjeans.com/?gclid=CLy...CFUYhpQodgX0APQ  If i'm in a pinch, the $20 jeans from target work.

I have recently discovered Target jeans too!

Other than that, I lived in GAP jeans for a long time - very comfy and long-lasting - and I have a pair of Sass & Bide jeans that I loved before I fell pg and changed shape entirely post-babies, rendering them useless!!!

I discovered current/Elliot a year ago, well tried them for the first time then, and love them. I also wear Paige denim and J brand.
Definitely going to buy more current/Elliot they have been the most comfortable so far and the nicest denim.

I used to wear sass & bide before the quality of all their stuff dropped hugely and now I can barely give my s&b stuff away. So that's one brand I WOULDN'T recommend.

Jeanswest I will recommend them to anyone I love mine had them almost a year now.  They wash great wear well and keep their colour.

plus you get 2 pairs for $99.

Jeans West. Bootcut. And they now have a 'tummy trimmer' one which keeps my gelatinous masses in check.

I brought 4 pairs of jeans west jeans about 2 years ago still going strong! Can't wear them right now being almost 8 months preg but they were worn all the time and still look new! Also I found a good pair from a rivers outlet store for $15. I was surprised the amount of compliments I got when I wore them:)

I don't mind Jag or Mavi.

Jeans West I find stretch really quickly.  Sass & Bide hasn't fit me since having children.  Target gape at the back.

Jag make a nice straight leg, in good quality denim.

#17 DandS

I have 4 pairs of Jag jeans (in varying colours/styles), which are wearing very well. Not too expensive either.

A timely thread! biggrin.gif

I'm still wearing my Jeanswest maternity jeans 11 months after DS's birth! ph34r.gif I have skinny legs, but can't shift the post baby stomach.

So I either have the choice of baggy legged jeans that fit my stomach, or jeans that fit around my waist but are baggy everywhere else.

Any skinny legged women who carry all their weight around their midriff have any jean reccommendations?

Another vote for Mavi and I'm a recent J brand convert. Neither brand is cheap but I just got fed up w/ the crappy, falling off you by the end of the day, quality of the likes of Jeans West, Sportsgirl et al. As pretentious as I know this sounds, jeans are an investment, especially if , like me, you wear them nearly every day in winter. I'm always amazed at friends who balk at spending more than say $80 on jeans but don't mind forking out loads on a pair of 'fashion' shoes/boots that are out of fashion before the season is over. Or spend more on their hair in single appointment.
I'm sounding a bit cranky-pants today.

Jeans West here too! I find most other slim or straight leg jeans don't fit over my thighs and if I buy a size bigger to get over my thighs they are too big in the waist. I have runners thighs like horse legs lol  Jeans West have the Curve Em bracer Jeans which are made for real women with curves or runners with horse thighs.

I love my Hudson jeans, I have two pairs. I also have a number of Sass & Bide straight leg jeans.  I have skinny Max Shop Jeans and Witchery Jeans, and a pair of bootleg Jag Jeans.

Post baby I've been wearing Calvin Klein straight leg jeans or their 'body' ones are awesome too, really comfy and there's a little pocket of elastic at the ack waistband that stops plumbers - worth trying.
Also like lucky brand jeans - sweet n straight (I buy them online from lucky brand), has a good rise and upper leg room for my 'generous' thighs. These are the most comfy and I always end up wearing them for walks, gymbaroo etc.

This thread has made me realise that I need to go out and get myself a real grown up pair of jeans.  Post babies (and maybe post moving into a double story house - damn those stairs!) I have less bum and hips than I do tummy sad.gif so my old pants are cutting me in half and not staying up properly at the same time.

Who wants to take me shopping?  Tounge1.gif
