Slimming black trousers

I'm hunting for a pair of black trousers, which should not be too hard to find, but I don't seem to be able to get what I want. I want

-stretchy and slimming, that suck-you-in kind, substantial strong fabric, not flimsy jersey
- smooth on top, flat front - so will look good under tight fitting top. No bulky fastenings.
- something that keeps its shape, does not go baggy and wrinkly
- mid to high rise
- full lenght
- size 10

I know what you think, but there's tons of leggings/jeggings/skinnies like that out there! And now's the tricky part - no skinnies.

- Straight leg.

Any ideas?

I've seen those recommend here - they are cotton though, dont they go baggy? Had something similar from another brand and they looked good only the minute you put them on.

I got trousers from whistles just like that a few years ago. Still wear them all the time. Don't know if they have them in this season, but might be worth a look.

Whistles doesn't seem to have anything at the moment. Of all places, M&S has secret support trousers that might work, has anybody tried those?

I have a pair like these from Coast although the ones i have from a few years ago are skinnier, however these are straight. they hold their shape really well and suck you in.

ooh the Coast pair could be exactly what I'm looking for. How's the sizing?

Boden bistro trousers are good. Really thick fabric and it keeps its shape. I think size down though. I'm more of a 12, and I wear a 10

RE Coast sizing - I took a 10 in mine - am normally 8/10 but the style I had were quite tight fitting. think normally they are true to size.
