I've recently put on a bit of weight. I was exercising four or five times a week as a sahm, but I got a job in Oct and have done pretty much fuck all since. Legs are still good but it's round my middle that I'm getting bigger.

Obviously now I've realised the severity of the weight gain, I have plans to try and claw it back. But in the mean time all of my clothes either look shite or don't fit properly.

I need to buy some bits and pieces that will artfully hide my current bulges, until I'm feeling more comfortable.

Looking for suggestions of good high waisted slim leg trousers I can wear to work, that will support the ever-wobbling midriff situation. I'm a fan of skinny and slim cuts on my legs are they are responsible my best bits.

Blessed (or cursed?!) with big boobs so also looking for tops or shirts with a V neck that will skim over the tummy situation.

I'm probably a 14, from a 10-12. But it's all sat on my tummy.

I'd get those ponte ones from Boden, they're a bit stretchy!

What about the v neck wrap blouses from hush:

I haven't tried them myself but I've seen Cos trousers highly recommended on here.

I know it's M&S but this is actually rather nice.

I got some brilliant trousers from Gap, strong material, hold me in, ankle grazing too. And 30% off at the moment. I bought two pairs.
