I must congratulate you on being one of the lucky few with a slim, trim waistline.  You can keep it that way by doing certain toning and firming exercises two to three times a week.  They will also aid you in maintaining a flat stomach.  Try the following:

Pilates Criss Cross-this exercise stretches and strengthens the abdominal muscles and helps prevent those unsightly "love handles."

Pilates Side Plank-also an oblique exercise, it strengthens the core abdominal muscles, hips, thighs, waist, arms, and shoulders. 

Pilates Bridge With Leg Lift-an excellent way to strengthen the pelvis, obliques, hamstrings, lower back, and gluteals. 

While these are not the only exercises you can do, they are an excellent first choice.
