Help please - I love the stye but not sure they will suit my curvy bits !
Am usually a size 14 / 16 depending on the make.
Any suggestions - am on a budget.

I think it's a matter of whether your legs are not too chunky rather than how curvy you are elsewhere. I'm a 12/14 & curvy but my legs are disproportionately big so I can never get cigarette pants to fit.
As long as they fit nicely - not too tight or too baggy and sit on the waist well I would have thought they'd be fine.

Enjoy - I'd love to wear that style sad envy

More practical advice: if you can face it, just go and try on pairs you like in lots of different shops.

I am a size 14 (maybe a 13 now in some stores, if they did it!) and have two pairs from Next Tall range.
They are very flattering and I am quite hefty of thigh.

I got a good pair from French Connection, had to take them in at the waist to get the fit but worth it as the leg looked right.
I am a size 12-14 pear shape so usually find i have to alter clothes to get them to fit

Size ten twelve pear here - have some boden ones - nicely made and fit well. The only thing I kept from a huge order.
