I'm relatively new to Blender (self taught using these forums) but I've encountered a problem I can't seem to solve.

On the image below I've tried modeling a sliding button, and applied a Subsurf modifier to smoothen it, to keep the bottom part planar I've set the edge crease of the edges seen purple to 1.

enter image description here

Now I'd like to make the exterior ends of the button thinner than the middle part (as seen in the failed attempt). I did this by scaling the X axis of the region I wanted slimmer. Object mode after scale X

I've tried solving it by replacing my creased egdes by egde loops close to eachother but got somewhat of the same result. How do I scale a group of edges of wich some are creased and some are not without distorting my overall shape ?

Thanks in advance :)

It seems i've solved my own problem after more struggeling. The culprit was me in the end, that went for a crappy geometry (the triangles and such) once i started over clean keeping everything planar until the last steps, the isues were no more. the lesson at the end of the day was; go for squares, not triangles :D.
