trousers for a fat belly

10 weeks Post section after ds2. My body is shot at. It's like my whole body has melted and collected in a bag at the front of my body. I was a size 10 before getting pg but always had belly issues. I had lost 5 stone but it's like my belly is the meeting point for all the fat in my body.

Skinny arms and still have a waist, but I need trouser advice, I'd love to be able to wear something other than leggings and loose tops.

Anyone know where to start?

I found a pair of high waisted jeans (with some give in them) helped contain my stomach - doesn't necessarily hide it away, but stops me worrying about muffin top etc.

After I had ds I bought some stretchy jeans from h&m. A bit like jeggings but a denim material so I think of them as jeans.
They are high waisted so it was easy to pull them up and my wobbly stomach was contained. Also, make sure your knickers aren't too loose and the elastic hasn't gone as good underwear could help hold you in a bit too.

My favourite pair of jeans at the moment is my Next lift slim and shape - slightly high waisted. I'm slim but also have some wobbly tummy issues (which I feel is v obvious as I am slim everywhere else) but these jeans help flattern things out a little bit. I also find a base layer vest top seems to smooth out my tummy area.
