Will pay top end of my meagre budget so under £75. Really want them to be flattering but not too tight. Smart AND casual and fling in the machinable. Oh, and if they could turn my flabby 14/16 tummy into something less podgy, so much the better. Thanks you splendid people.

Have you looked at Me&Em?

RemusLupinsChristmasMovie Sun 08-Jan-17 17:09:40

Try The White Company or Cos.

Remus those are lovely. Thanks. How do their sizes come up - I am a good sized 14 right now 😔

Kbear Sun 08-Jan-17 17:26:18

I love that expression - "I'm a good sized 14"....

me too - I'd like to be just a plain ol' 14 really but meh

can't help you with trousers smile

Uniqlo do loads like this.

RemusLupinsChristmasMovie Sun 08-Jan-17 17:28:48

Sizes vary a lot ime, so you'd need to try on.

I have a pair just like that from gap.

TimeForBedWhenever Sun 08-Jan-17 17:36:38

OK- will try to overcome my pathological hatred of shops during the sales and get into one tomorrow 😊. SwedishEdith I am beyond crap at finding these things online so would be more grateful than you can imagine for some specific links........ I am so bad that the ones I find on M&S all attract reviews from 60 year old + shoppers blush.

Gap. These:

Theyre not as skinny as they look on the model. More like slim.

SwedishEdith Sun 08-Jan-17 17:40:10

Like this but loads more. Look under ankle-length trousers.

VintagePerfumista Sun 08-Jan-17 17:47:55

Agree re the Gap bi-stretch. They are my work trouser of choice, followed by some M& S (so shoot me) fabulous slim bootcut trousers that are thick and have some hidden tummyholderinner thing going on. (I didn't realise that when I got them, but they are wonderful)

MostIneptThatEverStepped Sun 08-Jan-17 17:50:29

Can I slightly jump on this bandwagon and ask for the same kind of thing but for short people with a big stomach? I have literally no trousers any more and I really miss being able to throw on some jeans. Or some nice black trousers for work. What do short dumpy people wear that looks good?

TimeForBedWhenever Sun 08-Jan-17 17:54:24

Vintage do you have a link for your M&S ones? I like M&S but always find crap on there 😁

TSSDNCOP Sun 08-Jan-17 17:55:06

French Connection

VintagePerfumista Sun 08-Jan-17 18:04:18

I'll go and check my email, can't remember what the chuff they were called!

TimeForBedWhenever Sun 08-Jan-17 18:05:33

French Connection have some lovely ones but not a single pair in my size 😣

TimeForBedWhenever Sun 08-Jan-17 18:06:00

Thanks Vintage

BagelDog Sun 08-Jan-17 18:06:03

Following as the m and s ones sound interesting... I need boring and machine washable work trousers too. Such fun...

Truckingalong Sun 08-Jan-17 18:07:15

These trousers are literally everywhere. I defy you NOT to find them. I'm a useless shopper and yet I could go into almost any high street shop right now and buy a pair.

VintagePerfumista Sun 08-Jan-17 18:08:00

slim bootcut

There you go. I love them. They are really thick fabric.

TimeForBedWhenever Sun 08-Jan-17 18:08:42

Me & Em; also lovely but don't want anything too drapey (!) or cuffed. Thanks though.

VintagePerfumista Sun 08-Jan-17 18:08:49

Ignore that they are called "secret support" (makes me think of girdles and pantyhose lolol)
