I'm a size 18-20 and about 5ft 6. Where can I find decent quality work trousers? I am in trousers from Evans at the moment but the material is man made and cheap and nasty. I would love an elasticated waist as well as my waist and lower stomach after two c-sections isn't great.

M&S sometimes have flat front trousers with elastic at the back, also being a 16 apple I've found the clothes from Mango Violeta fit very well.
They also have an outlet. outlet

gap online go to bigger sizes and have some nice back trousers. Go up a size as they at no generous.

And sign-up for offers. There is always a 20 to 30 % code knocking about.

Thank you both. I might have to have a depressing couple of hours trying some on. I can't get away with my summer gear much longer.

If you need smart trousers for work try Jaeger. There are a few outlet stores dotted around too.

I'm an 18 with a big waist and narrow hips and I find that Wallis often have good trousers. The ones that suit me best are the size-zip type with a bit of stretch. Anytime they have them on the website they seem to sell out very quickly so they must be quite popular.

They have some in at the moment, black, grey or berry. Here

Very much recommend Boden for smart work trousers.

Some of my best ones are from Sainsbury's. Also have some Monsoon ones. M&S can be good.

Boden go up to 22.

ASOS curve - have a good range of styles and prices and modelled by real women so you can see what the fit is really like.

I hate shopping! But I also hate spending £££ online only to have to send it all back. I will check some of these shops out. Links to particular trousers are also helpful, thank you TimTam. Not sure where my nearest Wallis is these days, but I will try and find one!

Try Yours. It's a shop for larger figures and I tend to find them quite generously fitting.
They also do longer length tops which can help with the trousers issue by covering your tummy/hips

Anything, I have been there before but it was all man made fabrics which made me feel awful. Has it changed?

I was thinking about buying these. I'm not sure on the quality though as I've never bought from them before, but the reviews look promising.

I would avoid Yours and Simply Be. Lots of Polyester. Much prefer non specialist plus retailers like Boden. M and S Autograph also usually have some nice trousers.

BestIsWest Sat 15-Oct-16 09:58:26

Monsoon or M&S Autograph

AnythingGoesWithMe Sat 15-Oct-16 23:04:27

Pippa no I think it's mainly cheaper man made fabrics. I mainly buy tops from there though.
I'm guessing you want cotton based trousers?
I agree with pp, M&S often have good larger trousers. Next can be good but I found them too long.

PippaFawcett Sat 15-Oct-16 23:10:28

Anything, yes. Man made stuff makes me want to rip it off at the end of the day and it feels awful on your skin and makes me feel crap. I will try M&S though.
