Im a size 14 bottoms and top with FF boobs, and chubby everywhere. Im going on hols in 2 weeks and want to get something other than skirts to wear (thighs rub -ouch! ) Im just worried that the cropped trousers will make me look even more top heavy! Are the ones with turn ups good or bad? Im guessing I should avoid skinnies....

My dds dad and I just got back together after a few years apart and this is our first holiday together so I need to look good (Im ashamed to say, hes more into fashion than me, which is why I need help!)

Well I wear them, but I have very long legs. I think it is the length of the legs you need to worry about, not the size of the norks.

Why not look for some long wide legged linen trousers? They would be cool and glam. I wear cropped trousers despite my chunky legs, though, as they are super comfortable in summer (depends if you want comfort or glamour I suppose)

well, im too short for regular length and too tall for Im just concious (sp?) if I wear anything too tight on bottom half ill look even broader on top..
