Bought some trousers in January. Size 16 UK (12 US). Elastic waist, as that is still the problem area.
Now I am more than a size smaller, and loving it. Bought my first pair of Treggings and love the look.
Did I get rid of the pair I first mentioned, no, now I can sew again, I altered them, taking 3 inches, or 11cm out of each side.
And have you noticed I post more photos now?
