After my post about trying to find 'non sporty spice unlycra cycle clothing' that I could cycle in for more than a few miles, went a little ballistic, I have been trying out one or two high street offerings.
After a recommendation from a twitter friend Ella Wrediddlefors (@runpaintrunrun) I tried the Marks and Spencer Jeggings.
See a skinny person slinking about in them below, but turn the sound down, or you may think you are on hold to your bank or in a lift.
Note the person in the video is skinny. I am not. But being skinny does not have to be a prerequisite for skinny jeans or jeggings. It is however a cardinal sin to have massive thighs in them. It gives you the aptly named carrot legs.
I have since taken them back and wired my teeth together.
Feeling fat and dejected, I stumbled across these in George. The Great Bum and Tum Jeans
My only couple of dislikes are they are not available in different lengths yet so I will need to take them to The Zip Yard as they do a nice alteration where they keep the original hem. Also, they have a tendency to loose their shape somewhat. But so far so good. Baby steps and all that.
