That Time I Wore Shapewear Leggings As Pants...To A Bar

November 1, 2011 by Charlotte Steinway

A few weeks ago, I attended Pamela Pekerman’s Holiday Gift showcase, and was given a pair of Lissé leggings. Full disclosure alert: I’ve never actually worn shapewear before. It’s not that I don’t need to—it’s mostly that I hate feeling constricted and would rather just wear a loose-fitting and flowy dress than suck in what I’m trying to hide.

So needless to say, I was a bit reluctant to view the said shapewear leggings as a wardrobe staple—until I tried them on.

High-waisted and actually long enough (#tallgirlproblems), they actually remind me of a pair of “disco pants” I own from American Apparel—except they’re twice as flattering. With a top panel that sucks your belly in and thick fabric throughout the leg, these Lissé leggings are so cute and comfortable, I decided to do the unthinkable: wear them as pants. To a bar.

And although no major cathartic discovery happened, I did discern that they were actually perfect for a night out—they’re warm, comfortable, and above all, flattering. Hey, as Jill Zarin once told us, no one should be afraid to wear shapewear as outerwear.

UPDATE: Looks like the people over at Lissé want you to wear the leggings as outerwear, too, judging from the newer styles with leather knee panels (pictured right) from Bare Necessities. That makes me feel a little better about myself.

Also, be sure to check out our shapewear guides to the best body shapewear and Spanx.
