Holiday (plus size) trousers for the shorter woman

5 ft 3, size 22. I am going to Barcelona in July grin and I usually holiday in Scotland. Therefore I need some holiday trousers.........

Must be comfortable, multi purpose, easy to rinse out and drip dry (though I don't mind looking a bit crumpled) and cool...........

In an ideal world I'd like one slightly smarter long pair and one cropped pair.

Any suggestions?

Leggings & a frock much cooler.

Trousers - Next perhaps?

I was thinking leggings and a frock/tunic too. I have an ample choice of summer options there grin never bought trousers from Next. Do they do 22 then?

Think they do aye. Not in petite however.

Good old M&S. And actually just back from Sainsburys who have a decent range too.

Oh and ASOS have a range too.

I can't face M&S trousers. Ideally I want super cheap and cheerful. I will explore.....

Or if you are going for trousers / leggings due to the dreaded chub rub try Sloggi long line pants and just the frocks.

[please don't be offended if your thighs glide friction free past each other mine sure don't. smile

No thighs do NOT glide grin

Not a white trouser person but the navy version of those look good......

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Sun 14-Jun-15 22:14:14

The khaki ones are nice too. There are cropped versions too.

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Sun 14-Jun-15 22:17:29

These are nicer in RL than in the photo
