Please help me find some high waisted, flat fronted, non ugly, non expensive trousers.
I have some jeans along these lines but skinny that I bought in New Look. I love them but they're just a bit too low waisted. These seem to be the only sort of trousers I can wear that disguise my c-section overhang. I have some high waisted jeans and trousers but the zip and button area quickly start to push forwards to emphesise my less than svelte stomach. Can anyone suggest anything please? I'm thinking more these than these. Thankyou for any help.
Do Vivien's stock Heyday then? I thought they did their own version so am surprised by that. The VoH ones I've tried made me look rather chunky in comparison to the Tara Starlet ones but they do look great on other people so worth a try.
It's lucky most of Vivien's clothes don't seem to be cut right for my shape as I live about 15 mins walk from the shop, so would be considerably poorer if that weren't the case!
HavingKittens I've not been in there since I picked up all my bridesmaids dresses last Feb, because as a rule I make my own stuff, but I was sure they stocked them then. I could as my friend Fleur- she's one of the Heyday models, and has done some work for VoH in the past, so she'd probably know.
I know they should be but I've heard of companies being difficult about refunding postage (even though they have to) or taking weeks to refund your money. I'm still really torn. I think I prefer the Tara Starlet ones but the Heyday ones are cheaper and they're still more than I was hoping to pay.
