Getting Waisted

12 Oct

As I have mentioned I have trouble finding jeans that fit me due to my large bum. I usually stick to jeggings and my ever tired looking PZIs, yet recently I have been on a mission to find some high-waisted skinny jeans, something that I wish PZI would make. Having seen a friend have success with this pair I decided to try them on. Unfortunately the size 16 pair showed off my FUPA and they do not go up to an 18. I was therefore delighted to find this pair, also from New Look in an 18 online. I seemed to have grabbed the last pair in this style so unfortunately I cannot find a link for you.

As you can see they are not as high-waisted as they could be due to the size of my bum, but I absolutely bloody love them, they hold my fat in and, in my opinion, really flatter my shape. They are slightly stretchy which is a god send for me and my large curves. As winter is approaching I can see they will be fab for covering my muffin top and keeping my looking stylish!!!

The second pair I got were a size 20R from Next. I went for a 20 as I have previously found that Next skirts and trousers come up a little bit small over my bum. However, I think I shall be exchanging this ‘skinny’ pair for an 18:

The material is not stretchy so I am hoping that the 18 works as the fit, colour and style are perfect. I can see them looking fab when paired with a tight tucked in shirt and heels.

So my high waited skinny jean hunt has been a partial success, my faith in fitting my bum into denim in the UK has been restored, yippee!!!

They Like Big Butts They’re Called P-Z-I!

Shopping on the high street is rarely an enjoyable or happy experience for me. I have to find things that cover my legs to the knee, cover my arms or can be worn with a cardi, are not too high-necked, fit around my boobs and fit over my bum. It is little wonder that I am addicted to shopping online at specialist stores.

One major issue I have is finding jeans. Jeggings are all very well and I own a fair few pairs from Evans as I find their size 16 ones fit me perfectly, but they are not always ideal and I often have to re adjust them to stop them slipping down and off my plump rump. It was after a frustrating shopping trip that I googled ‘jeans for big bottoms’ and came across PZI Jeans. It took me a while to work out my size but after watching a few videos and reading a few reviews I went for a size 16 and ordered two pairs. The cost of them and the shipping is not cheap, but I was desperate for something that didn’t look like this:

And so my first two pairs turned up. A snug fit but wow, they went over my bottom and I didn’t need a belt!!! I then went onto order 3 more pairs, all in a 16 and couldn’t have been happier! One pair was so long that I decided to turn them into some cropped jeans which worked well. As I have lost a bit of weight I have found some styles to be quite forgiving and need a belt but they are still the best jeans ever, the Bravissimo of bums, I love PZI!
They are not cheap and ordering online is always a risk but when you find the right size it is so worth it! Check out their Facebook page for deals and advice and give them a go!

I would highly recommend checking out Sophia’s review of them as she is also a convert since I introduced her to them (and she has a great bum!)
