Sara is a classic hourglass size UK 8/10. Her waist is 24 inches and hips 38 inches so you can see the problem she always has when searching for jeans. Sara’s unique rise measurement is 13 inches from crotch to belly button.
Sara’s Denim Story:
Where most people struggle with bras and swimwear, I struggle with jeans! So, turning 37 last week, I went on a mission with my sister to find a pair of jeans! We literally scoured the Highcross Centre in Leicester and left with nothing! It was the same old story – what fitted around the hips and in the rise was far too big on the waist. My waist is 24 inches, my hips are 38. Finding jeans which fit both is nigh on impossible. So I was amazed to find the perfect fit in New Look. If the jeans had been made for me, I’d have been unable to get a better fit. What is even more amazing is that they are only £16.99!

Sara’s Round Up Of The Teal Skinny by New Look
They fit into the small of the back, yet sit slightly lower at the front. The waist band mirrors the body contours perfectly, giving a low ‘high waisted’ finish. No muffin tops, no rolls, no pulling up, no gapes just a perfect fit. As I’m only 5’4 with a ‘shapely’ calf, jeans can also be too tight in the leg. Again, these fitted perfectly. I was so impressed that I’m heading back to buy 2 more pairs. Perfect for any shape due to the stretch and softer finish. Absolute must try for an hourglass.
