Leggings may be comfortable, but always flattering? Not exactly. Truth is, there are styles that complement certain body types over others—but that’s A-okay, as we’re here to celebrate your uniqueness. What’s important is homing in on your assets so your chosen pair enhances your body, whether you’re styling them casually for off-duty or smartening up for the office, drinks or date night. However you like to wear your leggings, we’re laying out the best fit for you. Get inspired and stock up on our edit that will carry you through fall and winter with confidence.
For those five four and under with a slight frame, a slim-fit crop will give your legs definition and hit just above the ankle so you're not drowning in fabric.
Ladies five four and under with curves look great in a cropped fit with sculpting fabric. You'll feel supported but not overly compressed, plus you won't have to worry about fabric bunching around your ankles.
A longer cut with a mid-rise waist shows off your stems but doesn't make you look as though you're all leg.
Compression leggings are ideal for fuller figures—they sculpt in all the right places for an amazing, lifted effect.
A silhouette that draws in at your waist plays up your shape and smooths over your legs, hips and butt.
