i currently only have 1 pair that fit... from Avenue, a size 16. probably the only size 16 on the planet that fits me, too! they have lycra & a drawstring waist, since i'm still loosing weight. that way i can wear them longer! also, this time i got the petites. they're actually a bit shorter than i'd like, but when i get the average length i have to hem them a couple of inches.
so see, SillyJilly, you're not the only 'fat chick' here!
