Hug Me Baby
size guide

You’ve probably heard a lot about our Hug Me Baby jeans, these are cut for girls with a big difference in their waist and hips, in this case, 12?+. Their waist is a whole dress size smaller than their hipsfor instance, a UK  12 waist and UK 14 hips. Part of the reason these jeans get so much love is because, if that is your body shape, it’s really hard to get things to fit. If you are in-between sizes, these may feel a bit tight by the end of the day at the waist, or the hips might feel a bit baggy. If your waist is one size in the chart below, but your hips would fit the size below, go for our Classic jeans. Check out the size chart below for full details

Classic jeans
size guide

Our Classic Jeans, were the first one we designed. Based on a traditional jeans design as we know it in the modern world, with a central front zip and back pockets. These are finished off with our signature sweetheart yoke, helping give a visual lift to your backside. The idea was to produce a slim to tight leg with a high waist. When we first brought these out, you couldn’t find that anywhere! Classics jeans are the basis for the HMB’s however they’re cut for a more ‘standard’ curvy body. These look great with a difference of 10″ between waist and hips. If you can wear a normal dress size, these are for you. Most girls will be this style.
