Beautiful jeans incredible denim soft and well cut. Super flattering. Best jeans that I have ever bought.
28 May 2024
Love these barrel leg jeans and the high waist. I have several pairs!
26 May 2024
They are great jeans no doubt about it
24 May 2024
Great all round would definitely recommend
15 May 2024
The quality of the fabric and the overall stitching has completely depleted since the last time I purchased this extract product maybe 6 years ago. I don't think it is worth the money.
07 May 2024
Fits small and strong odour of the jeans.
14 January 2024
I love it so much that I even bought two colours to
05 January 2024
By far the best jeans I’ve ever worn. Fit is amazing and the style is so flattering.
01 January 2024
Great! Try them for your self you won’t be disappointed
11 December 2023
I could not be more disappointed. These are more mid rise than high waisted, the waist does not come in so has excess space and the zip is short and not sewn in straight. Poor attention to quality and detail ruins what is potentially a good style and garment. I purchased these because the description suggested the only difference between them and a pair I purchased in summer and love was the colour of the fabric (blue denim v black). The earlier purchase fit perfectly. These are difficult to get into yet I could fit a small child into the waistband with me. Sadly all in store in this new batch are similar. The variation in fit for what is described as the same garment is unacceptable for a high end fashion shop.
06 November 2023
Great fit & colour on trend
08 September 2023
Love these jeans! Love the style and fit
01 September 2023
Nice jeans but come up small
17 July 2023
Good fit, style and fabric.
09 April 2023
Lovely quality, style and colour. Wash well and keep their shape and fit too.
18 March 2023
Generally, a great pair of jeans. Fabric feels nice, they are a good length and stylish. They’re also made with BCI cotton which is important to me. I have only given 4 stars because mine are slightly baggy on the waist whereas they fit perfect on the hips, thighs and through the leg (this could be my awkward body shape though). Also, I ordered the white colourway and found that the fabric is a bit thin so they are ever so slightly see through. Black underwear would be a no go.

14 March 2023
I really like the quality of the jeans, however only issue they are a bit big on the waist but that is always my problem with jeans so I kept them.
29 January 2023
They are good quality but unfortunately I had to return them as I felt they were to stretchy for me.
21 January 2023
Perfect fit for my figure
09 January 2023
Ran a tad smaller than i thought and am used to from other brands but still fit.
02 January 2023
Good fit and style. I look fab!
29 December 2022
I bought these jeans after my other identical pair lasting a long time. Sadly the quality has really worsened; a stud fell off the first time I wore them, and after two months the zip broke. There were also loose threads and the material is much thinner this time.
22 December 2022
11 December 2022
Lovely jeans but no stretch and too tight

See above. Very comfortable and useful. A good length which is helpful and very rare. Usually trousers are way too long.
06 October 2022
Returned as wrong size, Too small.
12 September 2022
Didn’t work for me I’m afraid.
31 July 2022
Great fit and great colour!
25 July 2022
Classic whistles barrel shape in soft denim
13 July 2022
These are great, ONCE you get the right size. I tried four different pairs, two pairs that were the exact same size, but they were definitely not the same size. The size variation was a complete hit and miss. But if you persist (or lucky), they are a great pair of jeans. The denim is thinner, so good for cooler months.
11 July 2022
Good fit………………………………………….
07 July 2022
Really wished the waist size wasn’t so strange. Rest of the jeans were fab. Waist was small on 29. Had to return them
29 June 2022
Lovely jeans, high waist and lovely soft denim
29 June 2022
Way too small compared to my other whistles jeans in the same size.
21 June 2022
Good quality and fit. No stretch but that suits me perfectly.
12 June 2022
Love these jeans, my new favourite, bought them in grey. Fit perfectly and super comfy
07 June 2022
Size 30 are 2 inches smaller than the size 29 bought 2 months earlier.
24 May 2022
So different in fit to the exact same Jean in blue
17 May 2022
I bought a pair of these in the first lockdown and they were a revelation - I absolutely love them and so many people ask me where I got them! My endeavour to get a second pair made me aware how lucky I was that first time to find the right size straight away. Ordering the same size again was not the way to go and it’s taken three attempts to find a pair that fit - though not as good as my first pair. The quality of the jeans is very good. I bought the stretch ones first and the navy non-stretch this time. They are different sizes (30 & 32) but fit the same on the waist. The navy ones are fuller in the leg though.
16 May 2022
So comfortable and elegant. I won't be wearing skinnies any time soon!
27 April 2022
This is a repeat purchase for me as I love these jeans. I needed to size down due to weight loss. The sizes were extremely variable, I knew I needed a 26 I tried on a size 26 in John Lewis and it was enormous, I ordered a 24 on line to compensate for the hugeness however they were way to small so I ended up returning to a Whistles store to re-try , there is no size 25 but 26 in store fit perfectly, a little frustrating and I found the online size guide wasn’t really fitting my spec either. After reading several reviews it does seem this is a common issue with sizes.
12 March 2022
Love these. Perfect fit for me - would say they are a medium to large ish size 10 - flattering and comfy.
03 March 2022
I never received! I’m not out of pocket £306
17 February 2022
My new favourite jeans. Lovely high fit on the waist, flattering leg
08 January 2022
Took me awhile to get used to these, but now they’re my go-to jeans. It can be hard to get the right size, definitely size down
31 December 2021
the purchase was not sent
15 December 2021
This was a 27 and fitted. The other 27 I ordered was at least two sizes smaller….
07 December 2021
Great pair of jeans. Love the fit and at 5ft, 3” the length works perfectly.
06 December 2021
Completely wrong size. mislabelled??
05 December 2021
Inaccurate sizing of jeans
19 November 2021
I'm loving them. The style and how they fit.
18 November 2021
Barrel Jeans Ok once I received them
15 November 2021
I ordered these is a size 28 (size 10 to those wondering). The fit was tight around the waist. Good length for wearing cropped although I wasn’t so keen on the slightly washed/worn look.
10 October 2021
Completely different looking in reality
07 October 2021
Great colour, amazing cut.
01 October 2021
Nice but a little short at 5ft 9in.
01 October 2021
Nice jeans but not the same cut as mid blue, weirdly.
16 September 2021
One of the side seams is too far forward.
01 September 2021
They stretch after wearing once, to the point that you need a smaller size. If you are not told of this when you buy them then they won’t fit after wearing only one time.
25 August 2021
Very comfortable which I love but still look great shape
07 July 2021
Very comfortable. 2nd pair
01 July 2021
Very comfortable. I bought a size up but they were too large - advise against doing this
28 June 2021
Lovely jeans as expected nice fit
28 June 2021
These are great jeans. A flattering shape and comfy looseness
23 June 2021
Great quality jeans and fit perfectly. Great service from Whistles, they arrived quickly.
17 June 2021
Lovely fit, good quality - very pleased
10 June 2021
I couldn’t even try them on because they were wet
02 June 2021
Greta product. Lovely style and good quality.
30 May 2021
The jeans weren't a right fit for my body shape so had to return in the end. The stitching around the buttonholes seemed a bit poor for the level of quality I was expecting, so not sure what to make of this.
29 May 2021
Really lovely fit, I was between sizes but both looked nice.
12 April 2021
The zip doesn't stay up, even in the lock position. I contacted the customer service chat about exchanging in store and never got a response. I kept them because I couldn't face the rigmarole of sending them back, waiting for a refund and then ordering a new pair... only maybe for it to happen again? So now everytime I wear them, and the zip comes down I think to myself "these jeans cost £100". It's not a great feeling.
12 April 2021
My perfect postpartum jeans. I love how it makes me feel so confident again in my body. It looks and fits so perfect. Very quality jeans. The packaging was awesome and a fast delivered. Whistles Thanks a lot.
03 April 2021
As someone who lives in skinny jeans this is a bit of a departure, but the style is nice, the fit is perfect (I ordered 28 and I am a UK size 10) and I am looking forward to wearing them.
01 April 2021
perfect whistles classic jean known for amazing softness! only denim I can travel in
30 March 2021
Material Average )))))
29 March 2021
a little too much material in the crotch but otherwise cute shape and really nice denim.
27 March 2021
sizing is very small, i ordered a 34 which should be a 16, I order previous items that are 16 and they fit, the leg area is great, it is just way toooooooo small around the waist
24 March 2021
It was waaay too big. Sizing seems inconsistent
22 March 2021
These jeans are flattering, comfortable and give off the perfect smart casual vibe. I have bought jeans from Whistles before and they have always been constant in sizing. I'm a 28W and a size 10 and they fit so nice in all the right places. My go to for jeans.
22 March 2021
They look and feel wonderful!
10 March 2021
Love these jeans. Such a flattering cut. But the sizing is very inconsistent. In some colours the 24 fits perfectly whereas in others it’s really tight so it can be trial and error to get the right size.
08 March 2021
Would have given 5 but a little long for me
05 March 2021
Size advice was accurate....would never have chanced taking smaller size. Love the style, fit and the quality of denim.
10 February 2021
Too baggy for me, maybe for a younger person....
08 February 2021
I can't give them excellent as they were too big for me but they are fab jeans. The denim was superb and the shape is great just a size too big. I will order in a 24.
08 February 2021
Lovely fit and style, I’m a size 8 and the 26 fit nicely
02 February 2021
Great fitting jeans. Good colour. No distressed patches as another reviewer had reported. They do come up large. I ordered the 24 and they are a comfortable fit - I normally wear a 25/26.
26 January 2021
Honestly the fit of those jeans is amazing! Love the colour and material!
26 January 2021
Honestly the fit of those jeans is amazing! I've tried so many jeans that are looser fit and they were just not it.. these ones fit perfectly around the waist and makes your shape look great! Got two colours already, thinking about the third one!
21 January 2021
Overall nice trousers. Slightly different in a good way.
15 January 2021
Lovely blue denim that feels good quality. Mist important for me is the fit. Love the higher waist and straight edge of the authentic barrel. Can dress up or down.
13 January 2021
Best fitting jeans I’ve ever bought
05 January 2021
Top quality and purchasing experince excellen
04 January 2021
These are the best jeans I’ve found in years. Now have 2 pairs, which are on heavy rotation!
20 December 2020
Love them. Have been wearing skinny jeans for decades so this is a welcome style change. I will live and die in them and buy them in every colour (when on sale £95 is a bit spenny £70odd is more reasonable)
09 December 2020
I didn’t get the colour I ordered so can’t give full stars on this but the jeans are a great fit and the high waist is really comfortable.
09 December 2020
This is my third pair of these jeans. Stylish and comfortable.
08 December 2020
Good flattering shape, made my bum look decent and tummy flatter than it is in reality :) Happy with my purchase.
08 December 2020
I already had other pairs of these jeans so I knew I'd like them for style shape and size. When they arrived, I cut the bag open and cut off the labels before I unfolded them, certain there was no possible problem. When the leg fell downwards I saw a whiteish texture of some kind on the front thigh of the left leg. I stroked it away - but it didn't move and felt strange under my fingers. it was a large and torn patch of very thin fabric. They had not been advertised as 'distressed' - and, had they been, I'd not have bought them. I decided there was no point in trying to return them as I'd already destroyed the labels and the 'send and return' bag they'd come in - and I'm well aware of the dishonest and exploitive scams that go on in wearing and returning clothes. I'm disappointed in Whistles' quality control over dispatched orders here - but I will remain a customer as I like and buy a lot of what they do.
04 December 2020
Great shape, very flattering. Easy to style.
03 December 2020
These are great jeans, but where to big for me, I’m going to order the smaller size, however I’ve missed the boat with the 15% discount, so I’m waiting for another offer before reordering.
01 December 2020
Comfortable and nicely fitting on my waist and bottom
01 December 2020
Great, good quality denim. The high waist and the leg shape were perfect for my pear shape. I think the jeans would be improved by a bit of stretch in the fabric: we have become so used to this now it was a bit of a shock to not have any at all. On me (5ft7ins) the leg length was too short above the ankle and didn’t look right so that was the only reason they were returned.
25 November 2020
Ordered mid blue denim and was sent faded blue with distressed patches which were not apparent in the photo or description. Disappointed.
25 November 2020
Great fit! Little longer for my height but nothing I can’t fix.
24 November 2020
Poor style, no give in material. Too high in waist. Uncomfortable to wear
24 November 2020
Was wary of trying this new style of jeans but found them to be quite flattering & able to wear with trainers or ankle boots
23 November 2020
I was surprised to fit into a size 30 waist so I am VERY happy! Love the flattering fit across the tummy!☺️
17 November 2020
This is my second pair because I love this fit/style - so flattering! Ordered a couple of sizes as my last pair were made of a stretchy denim and I wondered if I’d need to size up. Kept the best fit and sent the other pair back. Very quick and easy return. I will be buying these jeans in every colour!
13 November 2020
Unfortunately these were an odd fit on my. The size 29 was too tight across my hips and thighs but the size 30 too big on the waist. But I like the colour and the quality
12 November 2020
Great purchase Best jeans ever Great length great fit great quality Arrived within a couple of days
11 November 2020
Modern cut and flattering fit
09 November 2020
Good weight denim for cooler weather.
01 November 2020
Love the style and fit of these jeans. Ordered my usual size and they’re perfect.
23 October 2020
I really liked these jeans and the style was just what I was after but on me there seemed to be too much fabric around the fly area which looked okay-ish standing up but puffed up hugely when I sat down.
22 October 2020
Great shape and fit. Easy to style. This is my second pair - love them.
22 October 2020
Really lovely cut and fit, I didn't keep them though as the blue wasn't for me.
29 September 2020
Love these Jean's. Feel great in them. Good service.
28 September 2020
Really pleased with these. I was looking for a change from skinny jeans and have found these comfortable and stylish. They look great with boots, trainers or sandals. The denim colour is a lovely fresh, clean blue.
23 September 2020
Great jeans – fit true to size and are very flattering. Easy ordering and speedy delivery.
21 September 2020
I love these jeans - great shape, easy to wear and a nice change from my usual skinnies. I'm 5'10" and the jeans finish about 1" above my ankles which I'm happy with. I will certainly be purchasing in the lighter denim too.
18 September 2020
I love these jeans - they are a fantastic fit, very cool but really comfortable. I bought a pair in black cord for the winter months! The fabric is great quality, the jeans will last for years!
08 September 2020
All good but style hopeless on me but I am sure good on o others hence the good rating . Good fit at the top and good quality. Wide leg not for nev
02 September 2020
The jeans are such lovely quality - soft material, without lacking the shape jeans need to look good on. Love the shape, can't believe I've found my perfect jeans...finally!
02 September 2020
Lovely style and nice soft denim. I sized down as I don't like anything too baggy. They were initially snug to put on, but now they fit beautifully.
01 September 2020
Love these jeans, they look lovely and the style is nice. However, the zip keeps splitting - will need to replace it, which is a bit annoying!
28 August 2020
Great quality jeans, exactly what I wanted, literally next day delivery for free
28 August 2020
Fantastic price for top quality jeans.
26 August 2020
Lovely Jeans great style.
25 August 2020
Really nice fitting jeans
12 August 2020
These jeans are very flattering. I have them in several colours.
27 December 2019
I love these jeans - perfect colour (faded black), true to size and good length.
27 December 2019
Like the straight edge finish, sadly returned as wanted a darker denim which you now have in stock
27 December 2019
Too baggy
