By "long" i mean ones that come to about the knee, or just above.

I have had a quick google but i'm not really coming up with much, except for maybe the mid-thigh ones but i'm deffo not buying those, with my chunky thighs!

I'm after a pair probably in about a size 24. blush

Thanx in advance!

Oh sorry - can't get the link to work

Go to Esprit UK

Go to Women

Then go to Sports

They would be perfect but they only go up to a size 18

Oh sorry Pargy - didn't read your op properly

will have a look around

Countingthegreyhairs Thu 24-Sep-09 17:38:51

These go up to size 22

these go up to 28 but are they too long leg-wise?

Thanx Counting! I also found those ones on the M&S website which would probably fit but i do think that the ones on the Curvety website would be too long. I get so hot when i'm exercising and sometimes it feels like my legs are burning up! haha!

I turn bright tomato red when I'm exercising so I understand the problem

Hope you find 'em

Will keep procrastinating at work keep looking in my spare moments!! grin

Bumping for you!

Thanx Count!! I go beetroot coloured too. Nightmare!

I used to have a fabby pair of long work out shorts years and years ago when i was thin and a gym addict but one day i stupidly left them in the locker and that was that - gone forever!

don't know if any of these are any good - all seem to be 7/8 trousers unfortunately

colour a bit yucky

and these are velour

have you checked out Littlewoods by any chance?

RGPargy Fri 25-Sep-09 22:52:16

Thanx Counting. Not sure any of those are much cop for me really. Thanx for looking tho - very much appreciated!

Are these any good? here

(I find the US websites are generally better for the plus-sized, and most will mail to the UK, though I haven't tried this one.)

Countingthegreyhairs Fri 25-Sep-09 23:04:59

No I didn't hold out much hope for them really ...

Bumping for you !

RGPargy Sat 26-Sep-09 00:10:26

Avenging Gerbil - they are PERFECT!! Thank you!!!

Countingthegreyhairs Sat 26-Sep-09 14:39:10

Well done Gerbil!

Dont be silly, Counting. You did a fab research job!!

Countingthegreyhairs Sun 27-Sep-09 22:41:16

just teasing Pargy grin

There's a real gap in the market isn't there? Disgraceful!

Good luck with your exercising

RGPargy Mon 28-Sep-09 22:12:10

hehe thanx Counting! It's so annoying how they think that big people dont exercise. It's probably more a case of not being able to find the right gear to do any exercise!!!

Yes seems incredibly strange that you have to source your trews from the USA ... ridiculous!!!!

Anyway, good luck with the new regime (I'm going to try and start power walking regularly again in October). Started three times before and stopped. Going to try and make it stick this time!!
