Having had leggings before where the waistband is around my hips (I have long legs) I popped into topshop.
And they have these leggings called high waisted extra long; they fit high on the waist (obviously) and totally envelope any muffin top, love handles - anything. They come right down to my ankles which is great, and the fabric is super-soft and feels really luxurious. For £15 a really good winter essential.
is the fabric a little thin? i saw a woman the other day in white leggings and a too short t-shirt on with them. They are about the most unflattering thing you could possible wear, even with large white pants underneath
LOVL mismelly yes, no cropped Ts in my wardrobe! Just tunics and dresses, thankfully.
The fabric is thinnish, but so soft, and looks really nice. I wore mine today with mary jane shoes, a shirt-dress and fitted Tux jacket, with the seemingly compulsary hair grip in hair (no I don't know what that's about, but I have been wearing whilst trying to grow my fringe out and now even people with no-fringes-to-grow-out have started sporting the hair grip look)
