I'm looking for some black trousers for work and bizarre as it sounds, I'm really struggling.
I'm 5'5" and weigh 9 st 12. Size 10-12 in trousers depending on fit/brand etc. DS2 is only 8 months so my tummy is still pretty saggy but my legs are pretty slim and toned. Also I'm quite short waisted- so I really want to wear trousers with slightly longer line tops that hide the tummy/ don't emphasise my ridiculously short body.
I just can't find anything anywhere. Anything that isn't a skinny fit seems to be baggy and shapeless- and very unflattering. Skinny fit sags at the knee.
These from Oasis are lovely, and bargainous, but sadly OOS in black. Not sure if burgundy is any good to you. Prior to these I've had skinny fit trousers from Gap which can be quite smart, or more expensive non-skinnies from Jigsaw.
