Hi!

So I’m a Size 10/12 in most places - more likely a 10.

The problem I have is I have a smaller waist but quite wide hips.

Does anyone have any clothing which would flatter my figure? Or places that would sell clothes that would fit both my hips and waist?

I always end up sizing up - especially in jeans. But it’s so annoying because to get jeans over my bum, I have to size up and that makes skinny jeans not fit the rest of my legs like skinny jeans.

Any help? 😂

I have a similar problem but with jeans. My waist is like a 28 but legs about 34 so it's hard to find them together. I also have to get skinny jeans and even then they're baggy on me

Do you not like wearing skirts/shorts? They could solve the problem.

Primark is the worst place to go to, idk about the women's section but in the men's there's like nothing there. And if I can find jeans that fit they'll be in something minging like green.
I'm thinking of ordering my next ones online if possible, there'll be more choice I think

ooh ooh ooh!
I have a very similar problem, except I have a long torso but I find it hard to find jeans as well.
I love the brand Lucy and Yak😄 They are quite expensive but are ethical and sustainable which I really support, I will got some jeans from there that fit me really well, as well as I think they're coming out with some new jeans as well!
hope I could be of some help xx

hollister curve might be good to try
their jeans fit really good on my friend and you can chose the length too ... was looking into some and i dont think their colour fades like new look and next jeans just dont look right on me

ahh thank you! I tried regular hollister jeans in the past and they just weren’t flattering but I’ll definitely check out the curve ones!

It’s frustrating, I mean I’m lucky I can find things that work and I’m grateful for it haha. But it would be nice to have things that fit perfectly haha!

I was told that more expensive jeans tend to fit better. I wear a belt usually and that helps but it might not work for you (plus belts aren’t really popular for girls)
