2019: The Perfect Bottoms for Your Thicker Bottom-half

We come in all shapes and sizes, and our body can and should be loved and shown off in the most flattering pieces. For those with muscular calves or thicker ankles and thighs, here are a few tips to keep in mind the next time you’re out shopping for new skirts, pants, or dresses.

DO:

  • Rock wide-leg and/or high waist styles
  • Wear long A-line or flare skirts and dresses
  • Embrace flowy silhouettes, flares, and layers of ruffles
  • Try on black, opaque tights/stockings
  • Get new pointed-toe shoes (they elongate your figure); nude color shoes are also helpful in this way
  • Say yes to knee-high boots

DON’T:

  • Cover your bottom-half in material that is clingy
  • Kid yourself with low-waist skinny jeans
  • Strut in pants with back pockets that are too far apart from the center line
  • Crop your pants; stay away from cropped pants or any form-fitting Capri pants that cut off at the widest point of your calves.
  • Wear ankle straps, especially thick ones (they make our legs look shorter and stubbier than they actually are)
