Since my CS 5 months ago I have shrunk to a size 8-10 which is all well and dandy BUT I still have the post CS pot belly and also cant wear any of my trousers which all have waistbands that sit JUST on the scar.
I couldnt care less about style really but I want something warm and COMFORTABLE and cotton to wear.

Help me - I am THIS close to buying fleece trousers fgs!

Can't you buy some long (mid thigh) tunic type things to wear over leggings with flat shoes (now) and boots (when the weather gets colder/wetter)?

A very good look for the slight, and very forgiving of a less than perfect tummies.

Anna8888 thanks for the suggestion but i truly cannot bring myself to buy leggings, I remember them the first time round! grin

yoga pants are slightly bootcut, so they do not shout 'leggings' at you

you can get some good plain ones from yoga sites

I think Anna's idea is great, btw

But there are such gorgeous leggings around this year - not those tight lycra things from the past.

I bet I'm older than you grin

Can't you just get trousers with a slightly higher waist? I don't mean scary ones, but I certainly won't buy thoes very low ones which would sit on my Csection scar.

A compliment from Cod.

I must admit Anna that this is one of your most accessible style tips to date

rather than "Go into darling boutique and spend a squillion Euros" wink

Just changed DD and come back to this! Ok off to have a look...

Cappuccino Sat 06-Sep-08 14:22:55

what is wrong with pants?

those leggings are frightening

no-one wants to look like the Kids from Fame

I tried on leggings in Topshop about a year ago - had forgotten till then. My legs looked like two sausages. It was not good. I do have yoga pants and have been spending too much time in them. Have not a fab pair of Hobbs linen trousers but they are too smart for everyday wear really.
Anna I'm 38 grin

Had forgotten *till now* I meant to say.

Anna8888 Sat 06-Sep-08 14:32:14

I'm much older than you then grin

Cappuccino Sat 06-Sep-08 14:35:04

I can't see how these are inferior to leggings in the least

you could easily throw on Anna's tunics over these

Cappuccino Sat 06-Sep-08 14:35:58

what about dresses?

wrap dresses?

opaque tights would sit nice and high up and not bother the scar

maidamess Sat 06-Sep-08 14:36:12

I think the long ankle length leggings are unforgiving to a leg. I prefer ones that stop mid calf. You can still wear with boots, or flats.

You can wear a loose dress over the top, or a long cardi (belted?). They keep my stomach in place!

High waisted jeans and trousers are making a comeback. I also think the 'boyfriend' cut of jeans are higher cut than normal.

MadameOvary Sat 06-Sep-08 14:41:14

So what's your ideal comfy slouchy outfit Anna, Cod, Cappucino and Pea? I'm only 5'2" as well so prefer a wider leg/bootcut.
However there is hope. My legs just might be thinner than they were a year ago so maybe its time to try leggings again.

Thank you all grin
