Q) Dear Donna, Hi im 5″3 and weigh 10st6lbs, most of which sits on my hips and thighs I find it totally impossible to find jeans that fit especialy on the thighs. Can you recomend any particular makes that i could try? (From Sarah)
A) Although this sounds totally mad, you should actually try some low rise jeans. If you go for something high-waisted, it could cinch you in at the waist too much and draw emphasis to your lovely legs and embrace the thighs a little too lovingly. What I would suggest is a trouser style jean. They’re fabulous, and are a great casual look for Summer. J & Company have one called the Robertson Jean (see above) that sits low on the hips, skims over the bum and has a wideish leg ending in a cuff at the bottom. They’re great and super flattering. They have the room in the thighs you’re looking for and the style will lend you a relaxed air. (Answered by Donna Ida Thornton, owner of Donna Ida Denim Boutique in London)
