this would be “too big” This chick effectively added about 15 pounds to herself by putting those on… blah.

@MrsFuzzyFace: We’re pretty much the same size. I’m 5’1 and I’m an 8 (used to be a size 6 but BC blew up my hips lol). I think it depends on the body shape. If they have really wide hips and short legs, it doesn’t look good. But if they’re tall with hips, it will probably look better. I don’t know..there’s no good answer for this lol

@MrsFuzzyFace: I am jealous I use to wear a size 5short now I fit comfortably in a size 7s without my stomach and sides bulging out.  I have fairly skinny legs and was called “chicken legs in high schools”Frown

I’ve seen full figured ladies rocking skinny jeans and looking great, so I don’t really know.

I don’t think there is a too big… You just have to find a cut that flatters your shape.

@Crisark: I’m a happy size 14 and weight isn’t the focus of my life. Anyone can dress well if they focus on good cut and tailoring!

I personally don’t think they look good on anyone who isn’t tall & rail thin.  I;ve always hated skinny jeans though so I guess I’m biased??

It’s not about what size they are, it’s how they are worn.  PLEASE wear a looser fitting and longer top with your skinny jeans.  Unlike leggings, it does not need to cover your butt, but it needs to come past your waist band. If worn properly, anyone can wear them.

I think this is a tricky question. I am a size 12/14 and I look pretty darn good in my skinny jeans. I just make a point of wearing them with a long top which I think even the skinniest of people should do.

I think it depends on the footwear involved. I look horrible in skinny jeans with flats. I am 5’7 and a size 6/8. But my fiance loves it when I wear them with boots pulled over them, which I do a lot in the winter. Or with heels. I just think they shorten your legs if you wear them with plain flats.

I think they look better on people with some curve… when thin people wear them my mind goes straight to skeleton. The 2nd pic she could wear them much better.

see what I mean by skeleton?
