How to Wear Pants For Your Body
Debbie Matenopoulos teams up with Sam Saboura of TLC’s “Something Borrowed, Something New” to show you how to wear the proper pants for your body. Wide-legged pants are great for tall women, high-waisted pants work for women with a muffin top and bell bottoms work for women who want to make their thighs appear thinner. When it comes to men, they should wear more fitted jeans if they have a flat backside. If men are a little shorter, make sure your pants have clean lines without pleats.
