Over Stretching Stretchy Pants!


I know it has been a while, however you were not out of thought! I have been asked to do a post on this misunderstood trend of the Stretchy pants! 😮 “Aaaaahhhhh!!!!” There’s is nothing wrong with stretchy pants, they are often times a great addition to any outfit. When it’s properly worn, that is. This is a brief post that I hope will help shed some light on the appealing look of leggings and not the appalling.

Stretchy pants! Stretchy pants! Whenever I see or hear if leggings now-in-days, I think of that 80s style youtube video “Stretchy Pants”. { if you haven’t seen it, check it out! It’s hilarious!}
Whenever I see a female wearing it and the outcome is disastrous. Not everything is for everyone. Stretchy pants is one of those things where its supposed to compliment the outfit not hinder it. There has been too many unpleasant sights of women wearing these decorative leggings without proper counsel. As we are out enjoying the uprising heat, it’s apparent that a clear understanding of leggings is needed!!!

1. Get your size! Keep in mind that the material to make these leggings shrinks! If you normally wear a Medium, get a medium (or a medium/large <– this can vary depending on the manufacturer). Don't get a size small thinking that it will hug your legs better. Once its been washed and dried, it will do more than just hug your legs! It could restrict blood and oxygen flow in your legs and the cause & effects of that is definitely not pleasant nor is it cute.

2. Make sure it tones the legs! Proper fitting leggings gives a well-defined toned look that accentuates the legs. If you put on the leggings and they don’t comfortably hug your thighs and give it a firm ‘I just worked out’ look, Do NOT buy that pair! Try another size! If that doesn’t work…. Skinny Jeans!!!

And… that’s it! Just two simple pointers that I have come to find works. Now, I’m not an expert. I’m just a spectator commentating on a trend that’s getting a little too carried away in the wrong way!
If you have any inputs please by all means share them!!!

I’m just sayin!…
