    Yup - used to wear them too - had a black and a brown pair both from M&S. And they were really slimming - had no bulky pockets/zip etc so T-shirts just skimmed! They really weren't as hideous as they sound (honest guv)- they weren't for training in they were proper trousers (if we are talking about the same thing)

    Haven't seen any about for a while mind

    Good luck with the hunt!

    I recently got a pair for under tunic tops in Ethel Austin for £6 - do they have them near you? Dare I say it (whisper) my nan gets them in Bon marche (but she is very stylish)

    Guess?!
    I have a pair and a spare of black stretch bootcuts, which I've worn for several years, just because they're comfortable and easy-care.

    But I also quickly realised that whenever I wore them, people would ask "have you lost weight?" They really flatter my particular shape (imagine an apple with a cocktail stick at each corner:eek:).

    Let us know how you get on Amethyst.
