    Can anyone help me find some linen trousers?

    To briefly explain, I am now down to a size 10 and have been looking for some "slouchy" style linen trousers for summer for ages. However, here in France everything seems to be cut for the straight up and down figure and I am definitely curvy! This means that unless there is a certain amount of lycra in trousers, their equivalent of a size 10 is usually just too tight on the hips, not quite deep enough around the bum and way too big on the waist. I don't have a problem with jeans etc. as the lycra usually provides the "give" I need round the hips, but the linen/cotton blend trousers I am looking for don't tend to contain any lycra.

    I'm coming to the UK in 10 days time, so thought I'd look over there. Any ideas of which shops to try?

    Thanks guys, it's white ones I'm looking for and you've given me loads of places to look. The ones in Debenhams look good at just £15.

    I bought a black and white pair in primark last week but they are 100% linen and so i dont think have lycra, I didnt buy expensive ones as I hope they will soon be to big and I will need to buy a smaller size lol
