I have to wear black slacks to work (or black 'khakis' if that makes sense! LOL!). However, I can not find a pair that fit!! I don't have a ton of money to shell out on some designer pants to wear to work. (It's a crazy job. I travel around to new opening restaurants and train wait staff/bar tenders for a well known chain.) 14's are just too big and 12's are just too tight through my thighs. And the waist is just waaay to big if it fits other areas! As far as I know (which could possibly not be a lot) an alteration in regards to anything other than a hem gets very pricey! Help! Surely I am not the only one out there who has experienced this problem.
