Huge hips. Ski trousers??

I want a pair of stretchy ski trousers in a size 18 do they exist??
I'm a weird shape - I've got huge hips but skinny waist & live in dresses & skirts normally but I'm going skiing (1st world problem I know!) so need to find a pair of trousers.
Tried on a few size 18/20 normal pairs but even with the belt done up the fabric is massive around the waist, help ! I need a stretchy pair so I can go down a size or two.

I was in Ellis Brigham (Covent Garden) just before Christmas, and they had a couple of pairs that were available in size 18. What about these ? I am hoping that I will still fit in my size 16s but if not, then I will be looking here as a starting point. I would also take a look at Cotswold Outdoor, which was where my 16s came from.

Try Amazon. I found a pair last year that had 4 way stretch which were perfect ( think they were about £45). Having tried 'normal' ski trousers I was horrified to find almost none went past my hips!!!!!

Meant to say, I think mine were Dare 2 Be or Tog24.
