How can I find a pencil skirt that will flatter my figure?

I run a size 12-16 depending on the brand/designer and gravitate towards a full A-line skirt to camouflage problem areas of my figure. On some occasions, a less voluminous silhouette would look more flattering. However, the traditional pencil skirts I've found (form-fitting numbers that taper towards the hem) draw attention to my large rear end and the ever-attractive roll of fat that hangs low on my abdomen. Even something like this
gives the appearance of sausage casing.
If I'd like to go with a sleeker silhouette, what should I be looking for? Are there particular brands or skirt cuts that would be less heavy than the A-line I favor, but would draw the eye away from the problem areas of my lower body?
