I neeeeed new jeans. All of mine fall down - not necessarily because they are too big but because they just don't fit well.
I am size 12/14 with thunder thighs and a bit of a post baby muffin top, so I can't wear any that are too low slung (am also v high waisted which doesn't help).
I don'r want to spend a fortune, but I think constantly trying different v cheap brands (Primark, New Look etc) isn't going to get me a pair that fits well.
What jeans will make me look tall. slim and toned (or, if miracles aren't possible, will at least stay up)?

I find dotty P's the best fitting for me, they actually stay up... sometimes!

I love Oasis jeans - find they come up a bit small (or maybe I am trying to make myself feel better)! I am fairly curvy 12/14 with mega muffin top and find them really flattering.

Dotty P's DEFINITELY fall down - I have 2 pairs in my big bag to go to the tip...
I'd actually forgotten about Oasis - used to buy jeans there pre-kids so might have to give them a try. I seem to remember they come up quite high on the waist which would be good.

I was a loyal DP jean wearer for over 13 years and my last jeans I bought from M&S. They are bootcut, "full waisted" (come up to my waist, took a bit of getting used to) and very flattering. And the best thing? They are £12.50! Think they are "M&S Woman". Pretty impressed with them.
If you want skinny jeans, i'm loving the DP Eden Jeggings (£23). So comfortable. I got some M&S jeggings last christmas which are fab too and very much like jeans rather than leggings

Gap. I have the 'Curvy' style in many colours and love them. I wait for a 30% off voucher and stock up. The only downside is that in store I can only ever find 32" leg length which I find a bit long. You can get a 30" online though.

I have big hips and a tiny waist. I once spend a whole year trying to get a pair of jeans to fit and eventually got some in GAP. they are a bit more expensive but, in my opinion, worth the extra money. They've got their sale on just now so perfect time to take a look

I love Dorothy Perkins and Next. I was in Next yesterday and they have a whole range of styles, such as high wasted, hipster, lift and shape, etc.
