I’ve found the perfect pair.
I know I’m not the only woman who dreads buying jeans, traipsing round the shops picking up different sizes (which are different whichever brand you buy) then having to squeeze and breathe in to get the zip done up before discovering what you would consider a straight leg being a skinny leg and having to start the search all over again. However about 5 years ago I discovered my perfect pair and that was all thanks to ASOS.
Normally I wouldn’t buy jeans online, however ASOS doesn’t size their jeans 8,10,12 etc. but with your actual waist and leg measurement which means you just need to whip out a tape measure, jot down those numbers and pick the style you love. Now I am a classic skinny jean girl and prefer a higher waist to make my legs appear longer so I opted for the Ridley High-waisted Skinny Jeans. I started with multiple black pairs, perfect for the hospitality lifestyle and versatile in the wardrobe before ditching them for a few shades of blue and I haven’t looked back.
I’ve always struggled to get skinny jeans that fit me properly, I’m curvy yet slim so getting everything to be tight in the right places is a nightmare, however the Ridley High Waist cling to the bits I want to and still let me breathe at the waistband – don’t be fooled by the belt that it is totally non-functional and just for decoration. I am happy to pay that little bit extra for jeans because they are a staple in my wardrobe however these come in just under the £30 mark and last literal years without any wear or tear, plus hey have petite and tall styles as well as standard sizing.
Have you found the perfect pair yet?
