Same with the pants! To fit my butt, I wear a size 13. My waist fits in a 10.
A belt just bunches up all the extra waist inches and looks weird. I have a "sway back" just like you. I'm going to look like a brick house in everything. Cannot win!
Makes me so happy to have someone with the same problem!!
I do the same with shirts, my little waist is my best bit, but to show that I'm actually NOT fat with my waist I need to wear fairly tight clothes.
I have an office job at the moment, and trying to find clothing that flatters my body type but doesn't make me looking trampy is the bane of my existance!
As for riding, I've finally found a brand of breeches that fit me and my stupidly small waist quite well. And because they're breeches, I don't need to take them up like I do with jods, how embarassing when I have to roll jods up nearly to my kness :S Stupid short legs!
