I really need black trousers for tomorrow and bought these today. My main critic (DD) has just left for university and the cat has no opinion. Do my hips look huge and are they as unflattering as I think?

No you look fab. What top are you wearing?

I think you should embrace your hips. The trousers look fab. Not unflattering at all.

I think they might be too skinny at the bottom which makes your hips look wider than they are. You look like you have a great figure. Maybe some 7/8 cigarette trousers rather than such skinny ones would be good.

Although having said that I think the angle of the pic perhaps makes the hips look wider and ankles smaller

Camisole top and black jacket.
Thank you for honest views! I thought that the bottoms were very narrow - they are Leigh from Top Shop which I had read were a good fit - maybe for a teenager (I am 47). Damn. I am still not sure! I have no-one in RL who can be brutally honest with me.

I'm 46 if that helps. And you still look fab grin

Lobster, they look great! Seriously- bloody wear them, don't give it another minute's thought!

thestarryeyedsurprise Mon 03-Oct-16 19:02:35

You look great, amazing figure smile

LobsterQuadrille Mon 03-Oct-16 19:02:49

That's a good point! Maybe with a top, I will look less hippy.

iknowimcoming Mon 03-Oct-16 19:02:53

They look fab - wear them with confidence!

Fuzzypeggy Mon 03-Oct-16 19:03:54

By the way my post was about maybe there are some better trou out there for you but you do look good in these

Tambaboy Mon 03-Oct-16 19:07:30

You look great.

With top

I think I agree with Fuzzy. In fact that photo reminds me of me wearing my skinnies (although you have a better figure). Personally I have to say, I think they make my thighs look massive. However there are so many other people wearing them that no-one really notices any more and some people like the look anyway.

Which is a very roundabout way of saying, I doubt it's your best look but I honestly wouldn't worry if you like them. And a slouchy top will help balance out your hips.

I hope I look like that when I'm 47 smile

HaPPy8 Mon 03-Oct-16 19:09:56

You look bloody fantastic, curvy but slender. I'm jealous!!

HaPPy8 Mon 03-Oct-16 19:11:10

I can't believe there are people suggesting they don't look great 😕

RollingWithIt Mon 03-Oct-16 19:13:12

I love them, you look fantastic. I'd love to have hips, forever pulling up my skinnies

MrsDc7 Mon 03-Oct-16 19:13:18

They look fabulous xx

Lj8893 Mon 03-Oct-16 19:13:29

You look incredible, I would actually sell my nan for your figure!

Louisajohnson224 Mon 03-Oct-16 19:15:19

You look fabulous.
I think they suit your body shape so well.
And I can't believe that figure is of a 47 year old

bbcessex Mon 03-Oct-16 19:15:58

You look incredible. Wear them 😍😍😍

neolara Mon 03-Oct-16 19:16:57

You look great. Many women would kill for hips like yours.

Clairerandallfraserthe1st Mon 03-Oct-16 19:17:38

I think you look amazing. You are slim and have a great shape. Do not for a second think you are too 'hippy'
