Just that really. Going from a job where I can wear jeans and trousers to an admin position so need to look relatively smart. I'm a size 18 and only have a 29 inch leg. Any ideas?

Don't laugh but have a look at Eastex trousers. Made for the shorter woman. Not cheap but I tend to get mine in the sale. They wash and wear really well. And last for years.

I'm willing to try anywhere for trousers that fit, whitehandledkitchenknife grin

I used to find Monsoon pretty good for this, but I haven't shopped there in a year or so.

Matalan is your friend. Cheap, last ages, loads of different styles and start in a 27" leg.

I get mine from Marisota (website).

Dorothy Perkins short length or some good ones from Debenhams. Catalan is also good.

Evans pear shaped range as my bum is much bigger than my waist

A second vote for Marisota from a 5'2" fat apple shape. Currently wearing their linen mix elasticated back and they're the best I've found.

Ooh, thanks for all the ideas. Off for an internet browse now to see what I can turn up smile
