Okay dudes & dudettes, I have a predicament. I’m a petite, but pear-shaped gal. In most jeans I’m a 4/6 or a 27/28. I’ve been dying to find a good pair of high-waisted skinny jeans that will fit girls who have big hips and thighs. I can find high waisted wide legged jeans that do that, but I love cigarette jeans and just can’t find a darn pair that will fit me. Despite having wide hips and big ol’ thighs, I have a really tiny waist, which is why I really want a pair of jeans that will accentuate my waist and curves!

I’m a little bit afraid of trying on Acne and jeans like that just because I think they are for really skinny girls, or at least girls with boyish figures. Whenever I try on jeans like those in my size, I can’t get them up past my thighs and it’s a bummer. Should I just man up a try on a pair a few sizes larger than my regular size, or are brands like Acne and Cheap Monday just meant for boyish figured girls?

Any brands I should check out that are reasonably priced? Any other ladies having the same dilemma?

Its just a question of trial and error. Try everywhere that sells jeans and you’ll find something. Everything comes up in different sizes.

To be honest I have a big bum same as you actually. I don’t like really skinny, skinny but so far I got great skinny jeans from Old Navy. The cost was great ($20) and I really like the selection of washes from them. I also got a couple from other stores but none are flattering as those.

I have about the same body type as you and I found an amazing high waisted pair at Urban Outfitters from a brand called Insight. The style is called high and mighty.

OH and I have also gotten some great skinny jeans from Old Navy of the Sweetheart style.

When I was last shopping on the J brand Denim site I noticed that they had a curvy fitted jean. I think the one that I was looking at was a slim bootcut, but that might be an option. They always have a great skinny jean!

I have also the exact same bodytype. Big hips and a tiny waist. I also had the same problem, but I just tried on a Cheap Monday high waisted skinny in a few larger sizes. Okay, not good for your confidence at the moment, at least not for me, but they fit really good! I say, just try it!

I have bought Acne jeans, and I AM curvy! I don´t know if they make them in high-waist, though… But you should try, Acne is great!

Ugh, I have the same problem. I’ve been looking for around a year now and they closest I’ve come is a pair of purple skinny jeans that are a little too big and sag on the bum. They were only a tenner though so I can’t really complain.

I don’t think they make high-waisted skinnies for us!

Dear lovely members of Chictopia.

YES there are/is a pair of amazing skinny jeans (I bought just a couple of days ago) from Wrangler “Hi Twiggy” which is $169.00 AUD (so convert it to your currency)
The amazing thing about it, it is a true skinny high waist jeans (up to the belly button), VERY comfy, made from cotton and tencel which is light weighted, breathable and slightly stretchy. On the first wash it will shrink a little (3% max) if you wear it after wash it stays in that shape for a long period of time. The fabric/material of the high waist is very strong (wet and dry).

Just wanted to share this with you all :D
xoxo
