I have been trying on trousers for weeks with no joy. I need some smart enough for work buy I'm determined not to resort to boring black boot cut, I want something a bit more fashionable in charcoal, navy or maybe black. I have no hips, skinny legs and a bit of a tummy. Size 10 fits the waist but is too baggy on my legs. An 8 looks fab on my legs but only just does up and leads to unattractive flesh splurging over the top. Any suggestions for a style that would come up narrower on the legs please?
Get what fits on bum, hips, thighs, legs, and have a dressmaker make them fit at the waist. They can work wonders. Can add a V insert at the back, often using fabric from a pocket. If no fabric available they will have something that will be 'near enough'
