Leggings For Body Types

I love leggings. They are so comfortable and trendy. They look stylish and chic, and the great news is that, every girl or woman can wear them, no matter what the body type. You just have to know how to wear the leggings, depending on the kind of body you have. It doesn’t matter whether you are athletic, curvy, or petite. Leggings have now become a major part in the everyday wardrobes. They are available n different cutout, cropped, and colorful styles.

So go ahead, pick the right legging for your body and wear it with confidence. This is how you should do it.

Leggings for Tall Women

Leggings look good on tall women, and I am speaking from my own experience here. Those who are tall can sometimes look too exposed when wearing mini dresses. It can be too revealing. Pairing the short dress with your leggings can be the solution. You may also try a tunic dress or a shirt dress with leggings.

Leggings for Petite Women

Those who are petite can also wear leggings with confidence. You can try wearing denim leggings with your riding boots. Or you can wear ankle booties with it. Just make sure to match the colors of your leggings and your footwear. This can elongate your silhouette. Those who are more petite can go for lower-waistband styles and cropped because this will provide a taller illusion. I feel color blocking or print works best.

Leggings for Women With Hourglass Body Shape

Those with an hourglass body can wear leggings with belted tunics. This will accentuate your feminine figure and waist. Wear a tunic with small print or one-colored tunic. Stay away from wearing a printed legging and a printed top together. High-rise is a good option. You can go with side-paneling, as this will make your legs look longer.

Leggings for Apple-Shaped Women

Try a legging with midrise waist. Both long and crop styles will work for you if you have this figure. However, make sure to avoid prints. You may instead try mesh detailing in your low-leg area to add the fun element to your dressing. Wear a low-key outfit to prevent drawing too much unwanted attention to your waist or stomach area.

Leggings for Triangle-Shaped Women

Ladies who have curves around their hips need to wear a legging that won’t dig into their waist. Find styles that fold over a wide waistband and hits below your belly button. And if you are wider around your bottom, then stay away from prints. You can opt for bold solid colors instead. Also, avoid crop styles. Go for longer instead.

Leggings for Women With a Pear-Shaped Body

Pear-shaped women look good in leggings too. Try wearing one with your favorite tunic dress. It can be a printed or bright-colored dress that draws attention towards your upper body. You can pair the tunic dress with a cardigan or jeans jacket. Remember, you should make sure that the tunic is long enough to cover your hips and buttocks.
