So which to go for?
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 hips, for instance a UK 12 waist and UK 14 hips. Part of the reason these jeans get so much love is becuase, 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

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

Need a petite fit? Say hello to our Polly, named after Polly Pocket, they are just perfect for those with a petite figure, a short torso or if you want your jeans just below your natural waistline. They have a 27″ inseam from crotch to hem and a great tight fit. We love them turned up to mid calf with a pair of loafers or lace up ballet pumps. They have our signature sweetheart yoke, and front zip, with dark gold pocket stitching.

Fancy a wider leg? We love our Le Wild jeans, they are great for boots, or we’ve loved wearing them turned up to mid calf with a pair of loafers or lace up ballet pumps. They have our signature sweetheart yoke, but feature a side zip. They’re also cut a little slimmer on the hips so are great for those of you who don’t have a big difference between your hips and waist.
