Some other suggestions
JUST JEANS - Australasia’s largest specialty jeans store with brands like Levi’s, Riders by Lee, Mavi, Calvin Klein and ‘7 for all mankind’, as well as their own brand.
NOT YOUR DAUGHTER'S JEANS - just as the name suggests, here’s a brand of jeans that are designed for women that have shapely bits. In other words, most of us. If you’ve ever struggled to find a pair of jeans then don’t look past this brand. Their patented design features ensure fit and comfort are paramount.
Stephanie, one of our last makeover models can vouch for this. During her makeover she complained that she could never find jeans that fit her body shape. She invested in a pair of these jeans and hasn’t looked back.

Ask for help. Specialist jean stores are experts in fit and style. They’ll be able to guide you on what will look best.
Don’t just choose the first pair you try on. Try different styles even if you’re in doubt, you’ll soon work out what looks best.
Avoid looking at the price tag first. Go for comfort and style, then cost. Remember, a good pair of jeans is investment buying.
