    Default Where did you buy your favourite jeans?

    My friend went on holidays recently to Europe. She was showing me some of the things she bought the other day, and I was saying how gorgeous her jeans were. She said that she had bought them on her holidays, and that they were on sale when she bought them, and how pleased she was with them.

    She is in general fairly fashionable - but her tastes are fairly expensive, so I was a bit scared to ask .. but she told me how much they were, and I was glad that I was sitting down

    They were 300 Euro's. And she thought they were such a bargain she bought 2 pairs.

    I cannot imagine ever paying that much for a pair of jeans. Much less considering them a bargain


    My favourite ones on the other hand are a pair of skinny jeans from Just Jeans. They are really beautiful, comfy and I love them - and I bought them at harbour Town for $40

    My favourite jeans are from jeans west. They fit perfectly, look great. I love them!!
    I even have three new pairs sitting in my cupboard in case they stop making the design!!

    I think you are describing me! I am obsessed with jeans & think good quality is worth paying for.
    My favourites are my J brand skinny jeans - bought on sale at DJ's Melbourne half price ($150), but I got 2 pairs 😁 they were a bargain.
    Other faves are James Jeans skinny jeans, they were about $200 each, again got 2 pairs.
    But they are all at least 2 years old & still going strong. So I think it was a good investment. It's funny once I tried the high end jeans I just couldn't go back, I've fallen down the rabbit hole!
    I got some asos maternity jeans for about $50 which were also lovely.

    My fave jeans (jeggings actually) are from Supre! I wear them daily in cooler months (obviously I have more than 1 pair ) and they have lasted longer than any other jeans I have owned and still going strong.

    With the expensive brands, even Just Jeans etc, i can never get a nice fit. If they fit my waist they are way too big in the bum/legs and if they fit nicely around my bum/legs, I dont have a hope in hell of doing them up!

    I will stick to my el cheapo Supre perfect fit ones

    I have no idea

    they were beautiful (and she is gorgeous so they looked amazing on her) ...

    I was just amused at the differences in what find a bargain. My DH was absolutely horrified that anyone would spend that much on 2 pairs of jeans

    Wrangler Twiggy! My favourite would be the Mid Twiggy, buy I also have the low and high cuts and love those too.

    They're the only pair I've found that cater to my tiny waist/big hips/small legs.

    I love jeans, but my body shape makes it difficult to find a great fit. I generally fall in between sizes because I'm larger around the waist but have narrow hips and a small booty.

    Doesn't stop me wearing them though! I get the size up rather than down because jeans too small are super uncomfortable.

    I bought a nice bootleg pair at target the other day for $35.

    I just bought a pair from cotton on the other day.. $40. Best fit I've found in a long time!
    I can never find a pair that fit my smaller waist and big legs so hate spending money on things that don't fit properly. I keep meaning to try 'high end' jeans but my cheapies do just fine for now.

    High five to my apple shaped sister. It is a massive gripe of mine that jeans- and a lot of other pants that aren't elastic wasted just don't work on Apple shaped ladies.

    If we can get them to do up around our tummies, the bum is too saggy and the legs are too wide. If we get them to snugly fit our bums and legs, then we cannot easily do them up (if at all) and we get massive muffin tops.

    Apparently Jeans West have a line of jeans out for curvy women that hug in al the right spots. A few women on a FB multiples page were talking about them, and said they were amazing and a bargain price (compared to what others in here are quoting! Sheesh! ) I asked whether they would have something to cater for us apples, and they said it's worth a look although they weren't sure because they had the badonkadonk butts, very unlike myself whose butt is almost concave.


    And to answer your question @BH-KatiesMum I have no favourite pair at the moment. None of my jeans make me feel confident, and the one pair I do wear regularly were like $40 from Big W but I only wear them because I can actually get them done up and don't have a muffin top. (Oh the shame!)

    I bought a couple of new pairs this year and paid just over $100 for 2 pairs. They are Just Jeans fit enhancer and are so comfy!

    Also I hate jeans shopping. I'm short so find it difficult to find ones that fit.
