Jeans for Curves from ASOS

Great jeans for curves ASOS Farleigh 4

I’m a curvy lady. I’m currently a size 18, but at at any size I am curvy – with a large difference in size between my waist and hips, and a round tum and bum. And this shape basically makes buying jeans a NIGHTMARE. I’d pretty much given up wearing them to be honest, with dresses and skirts taking over. I know that I’m not the only one with this problem, so I wanted to share these awesome Farleigh jeans from ASOS.

I’ve found that generally, jeans are either too low cut, which means they cut into the fullest part of my tummy, or roll down under it – really uncomfortable and not exactly flattering; or if they are high waisted enough then in order to get them to fit over my hips the waist ends up being massively too big, leading to either annoyingly falling down jeans throughout the day, or having to belt in excessive amounts of fabric.

Neither of these are an issue with the Farleighs – they hit me at my natural waist, are snug around the hips & bum, and best of all, stay up all day without a belt. They’re also a slightly heavier weight denim than I’ve found myself buying in recent years (most of the jeans that came anywhere near fitting me were more like jeggings in their super stretch fabric) which I love.

I wore these jeans to death on my honeymoon in Japan, and I love them rolled up with a pair of heels to dress them up a little as much as I do running about in trainers and a tee.

The Farleigh style is available in multiple washes and colours, and inclusion in the ASOS Curve range means that they run up to a size 28. I can see more pairs in my wardrobe very soon. My only hope is that some more colourful styles become available as Spring approaches – can you imagine them in a gorgeous green, grey or even pink? Oooh!

There was no way that I could resist trying to take some outfit photos in the gorgeous surroundings of the hotel we stayed in on our recent holiday in Madeira. One of the things I loved about this trip was having a dinner booked in the hotel restaurant every night – it was lovely to have the routine of getting dressed for dinner.  [Read more…]

Friday Five – Flared Jeans

friday five where can you buy flared jeans on high street

Flares are BACK BABY!

Please excuse my excitement, but I’ve always loved a flare – not that I’m knocking the comfort of skinny jeans, which has always felt like wearing a pair of denim support leggings out and about (erm, in a good way) but I’ve never felt they were the most flattering over my curves, basically giving me ‘pizza legs’ (imagine two slices of pizza next to each other, with feet at the points). Flares, on the other hand, are fabulously balancing over curves, and a decent high-rise pair can make your waist look teeny tiny. [Read more…]

With my love of all things cutesy, you won’t be surprised to hear that I take festive dressing fairly literally. I love a good Christmas jumper, live for a bit of sparkle, and am quite upset that I haven’t had time to make myself a Christmas dress bedecked in boughs of holly this year (although I have ordered a rather nice little tartan number from the Boden sale, so I’m sure I’ll cope!)
So, when you take my love of festive, sparkly dressing, and add in a blogger-appropriate slogan, how can I possibly be expected to resist? Season’s Tweetings to you all!
