Any advice please? I have a massive belly. I really need to lose weight but in the meantime, I'm wondering if I can find jeans.
I am a size 18 - sort of. I have a number of size 16 items but I suspect these are just generous sizes. If I buy straight skirts they sit strangely as my tummy is much bigger than hips/bum - think pot belly shape. Size 18 tops fit my boobs but are loose elsewhere.
I have been wearing mainly flared skirts with fitted stretchy tops and dark tights which seems to create some sort of shape. Not much.
I currently have some Gap curvy boot cut jeans which have a little bit of stretch. They are high enough to hold tummy but the way in which they hold my tummy makes it look more rounded and very pregnant. My boobs are huge which makes me look pregnant too. I hate looking pregnant! Its so embarrassing.
I basically live in skirts but my second child is crawling and jeans would be much more practical for baby groups/playing and rainy/snowy school run days.
Are there any styles/brands I should try....or do I just need to wait until I've lost some weight.
