Desperately seeking pencil skirt that smooths lumps and bumps

All of my skirts need replacing, but I'm finding it impossible to find nice pencil skirts that are either made of thick material or are lined, and are not too £££. Everything on the high st seems to be unlined and so thin you can see a VPL and every bit of cellulite. Ladies, where are you shopping?

Style wise, I'm not a massive fan of skirts that look like they could be the bottom half of a suit IFSWIM. So ideally I'd like a shirt that looks like it has wool in it or some other texture.

Thanks very much for any advice.

I've bought a couple of black pencil skirts from warehouse. Good quality material & lined. I wear them probably 3 or 4 days a week and they wash & wear really well. They both have pockets which is very handy. Think they were about £40. They normally do the same style with a pattern as well if you fancy a change from black. You probably need to look online as not all the stores stock them.

Google Ponte pencil skirts. Ponte is a heavy jersey material which I wear a lot as it doesn't cling, but skims, and I find it very flattering to wear.

J Crew do a great one in wool rich material. Holds its shape really well. I can't remember the style name. It wasn't mega expensive...about £80 I think.
