Jeans. Not too ££, flattering to size 12, 5ft7 and don't go through in the crotch area after 9 months.
I am the same size and height as you and all my jeans used to rip in the crotch. I still to this day don't know why they did. I don't have a particularly spiky fanjo. It never happened to any of my friends. Well, it doesn't happen anymore thankfully as wearing crotchless jeans was getting quite embarrassing. I now live in jeans from Gap. I've got loads of different types and the crotches are all intact.
My legs are quite short even though I am 5ft 7. My body is really long. New Look jeans were the worst for ripping. They would rip after about 4 months. I really don't bend much either, not unless I've dropped a sweet on the floor. .
Riven, I don't think I've ever had talked to you but I 'know who you are' and when I was on holiday I had a dream about you and your youngest DD.
