Help! I only own 1 pair of trousers, and even they don't fit really :/

I had a wardrobe sort out earlier and it really shocked me. I have 1 pair of trousers that fit (green cords) and 1 pair of new look high waisted jeggings that I am constantly pulling up. That's it. Literally - all I own in bottom halves.

So, I'm broke. I have a horrendous mum tum / muffin top / cake tray. I'm size 14 I think (green cords are 14 and go under mum tum, jeggings are 14 but keep falling down) I'm a 16 on top.

What would you buy? I am going away on Monday so if I can order online before then all the better. Cheap is good!

Thank you all grin

My very favourite pair of trousers were from the Cos sale. I get asked if I have lost weight every time I wear them. These look similar They are not cheap though. I think I got mine for £40 in the sale.

Oh they are beautiful. Just what I am after - thank you. I have never bought anything from cos, would I be ok ordering a 14 or would a 16 be better? I've never spent so much on 1 item before, this is sort of exciting!

I think a 14 would be fine, but they do vary between items.

Does it have to be trousers? I've got a massive Mam belly and have decided that it just makes me the wrong shape for trousers - I've just started buying dresses which seem to hide it better.
