You know the Groove Pant – the iconic black stretchy pant with the flattering waistbands that comes in pretty colours and makes all our butts look so good! To some, the idea of wearing tight pants is as appealing as being the 40 Year Old Virgin getting his chest waxed (If you’ve never seen this movie you can view the scene here). The secret to looking good: make sure you have the perfect fit!
Here are some tips to help you find your best Groove:
1. Muffin tops belong at the bakery, not in your outfit. If there’s skin hanging out over the sides of the waistband, try the next size up – it will ensure that you have a smooth look through your torso and waist which will make you look slimmer than trying to squeeze into a smaller size.
2. The 1980’s called, and they want their feathering back! Feathered hair was hot on Charlie’s Angels but that look doesn’t belong on your pants. If you see bunching around the crotch area or a “feathering” in the material then those pants are too big. Try the next size down.
3. Shiny happy people don’t wear shiny or corrugated luon. Put on your pants and look closely at the fabric on the thighs of your pants when your leg is relaxed – how is the appearance of the fabric? If it sits smooth without a “corduroy” look to it then it is a good fit. If you can see the defined ridges in the fabric stretching out, the luon is being forced too tightly.
There you have it folks. Just a few quick tips to help you look your groove-y best! If you have any other tips regarding these pants we’d love to hear them!
