    Can someone measure a waistband for me please?

    I am in Spain for several months but will be back home (Newcastle) on 4th December. I am planning on getting more M&S tencel jeans - I have black, brown and purple ones at the moment but they are going to be too big soon. They are size 20long. (I have a feeling that because they are in m&S classic range they are really a 24 cos no way can I get into anything else that's a 20 and my top half is still 26/28)
    Anyway - back to the point ....

    I have 4 pairs of these tencel things and 3 pairs are fine and one pair is about 3 inches smaller round the waist although they are all marked the same size.

    I have it in my head that the smaller ones are actually 18s which have been wrongly labelled. By the time I come back on 4th Dec I am hoping to be able to buy some 18's which will fit.

    Please - Is there anyone who could take a tape measure in with them when they go to M&S and measure the across the waist bands of a pair of 18's of these tencel jeans type things from the classic range and tell me. I want to avoid being upset if I think I am going to get into the 18's and I can't.

    AlexIce - I wish I could. I'm in France and coming 'home' soon and am desperate to know what size I am in the shops. Have you seen the thread on size-ing and different shops, it's interesting. I'm now in size 12 jeans (was 18/20) and apparently they are standard sizing, am so pleased, though they maybe cut on the large size!
    P.S I'd say on the track your on, you won't be dissapointed.

    lol Yes Flowey - I started the thread. I think it will be a big help to me to have more info on sizing - it's going to be strange going into a whole new range of shops.

    No - they have inside leg lengths but not waist measurements.
    Sigh - maybe I will just not think about it and convince myself that the 18's will fit and deal with it if they don't.

    Hi Alexice,
    I am always in and out of M & S and will probably pop in there sometime next week to get my self some more knickers as the ones I am wearing are hanging off me and fall down when I move, gone from a 24 knickers to a 16 (I am not a 16 yet in clothes but the knickers are the lycra ones..belly huggers....so comfy and stretchy..I bought a packet of 18's to start with thinking that might be optimistic...but was so chuffed that they were a bit roomy I went back and bought a pack of 16's). A girl can never have too many knickers. So if you want me to measure the trousers I will..but you will need to tell me exactly what range and type they are. Just let me know.
    Glad to help,

    Nicki - you are such a star! Thank you so much! I really appreciate it.
    Ok - it's the tencel jeans in the classic range - they're not denim and come in black, brown, a strange sort of green and also blue.
    I've tried to paste a link in to their website so you can see.

    I know what you mean about the knickers - on this visit back I am hoping to be able to get a pack of 18s!
