I like LL Bean jeans, but the real secret is to get them altered. I put darts in the waistband and that fixes any gap.

Also, think boot-cut, as they're very flattering to curves.
If wisdom’s ways you wisely seek,
Five things observe with care,
To whom you speak,
Of whom you speak,
And how, and when, and where.

Old Navy curvy jeans work for me.  I have the same shape.  They aren't great quality, but they're cheap, so I just buy a bunch and don't worry when they start getting haggard.

I saw someone who got the little elastic grippers that are supposed to keep the fitted sheets in place and had them clipped on the back of her jeans from one side across the center back to the other side - just enough elastic and grip to keep the jeans on but let them grow when she knelt down or bent over.

Elastic belts are my preference...evens the slight gathering out around the whole waistline.  Depends on where you can identify the looseness as originating, I suppose.
