Best work trousers for a "mummy tummy"

I am losing weight at the moment, but am struggling with workwear. Bought a pair of trousers that fit my waist but there was too much fabric below the waistband around my tummy and they looked ridiculous. Can't do the next size down up yet. Can't wear leggings/jeggings etc for work. Does anywhere do good smart casual trousers with stretch to hold it all in?

Also don't really want to spend £60 on trousers that will only fit me for around 3 weeks!

Sainsbury's. Slim boot cut, stretchy, generous cut but not baggy on the 'apron', £12. Only cheap viscose / polyester but don't have that nasty 'shine', and are flattering on. And have pockets <hallelujahs> which don't make the lower tum bulge out.
They had them in navy and black in my local store. I'm an 18, big lower tummy, and they are great on me.

I have bought the same trousers for work herebefuckery. They are cheaply made - I've had to sew the hem on both legs which happens a lot with Sainsburys trousers but I agree those ones are flattering.

Brytie I'll keep an eye on me hems, thanks for the warning! I've only worn them four or five times, so no sign of wearing out yet, but good to have a heads up! Cheers.
