I always have been narrowing the waist of the pants I buy, cause I have narrow waist and wide hips. The result wasn't always the best, usually depending on the fabric or how long my top was going to be...to cover up the waistband... Now I believe I've got it! See if the waistband is one piece, there's no guide-seam to follow or an easy way to add darts if needed. I hope I'll help you guys. It worked for me!
PS: sorry for my english, I did my best!
