There is nothing more gratifying than a beautifully fitted trouser. The one in question is very high waisted, which is good for me, because, as I have mentioned numerous times before, I am short in the leg and need all the help I can get. I also find that high waisters help me walk taller, stop me slouching in my seat quite so much and generally aid posture. I guess they mimic a corset. If I wore heels as well I would look positively gazelle like.
