CONCEAL CAMEL TOE FASHION FAIL

Whatever you want to call it (crotch cleavage, anyone?), that moment when you look in the gym floor mirror and catch sight of a camel toe drawing everyone’s eyes to your lady parts is never fun. Not that there’s anything wrong with showing a camel toe in leggings, it’s perfectly natural. But that doesn’t change the fact that most of us still feel terribly self-conscious when our vaginas decide to eat our clothing – and when did feeling exposed or embarrassed ever enhance anyone’s performance?

FASHION FIX

Google ‘how to hide camel toe in leggings’, and all sorts of solutions come up, including wearing pantyliners to smooth out your pubic area, and stuffing ‘camel toe guards’ down your knickers (yes, they exist). But there are simpler alternatives. First, always wear underwear. You might like the freedom of ‘going commando’, but it’s a sure-fire way to put your bodily features on display as there is less of a barrier between your leggings and body (if you’re worried about VPL, try a seamless thong such as Victoria’s Secret No Show Thong, £9; victoriassecret.com). Next, choose thicker, heavier fabrics, as they’ll be more likely to stretch over your crotch area, as opposed to thinner fabrics which can get pulled into the creases of your body.

Super-tight leggings can also create a disaster zone down there: think about sizing up so you’re not constantly tugging at your leggings, causing them to get trapped where they shouldn’t. Finally, eschew all leggings that have front rise seams running vertically through the centre of the crotch, creating tension and cutting you in half. Look for leggings that have flat front panels with U-shaped inseams or a crotch gusset (a triangular-shaped piece of cloth sewn in where all the seams would normally meet between your legs). Not only do these seams withstand the pressure of being pulled in all directions – so your leggings will last longer – but you’ll also never have to endure a camel toe again.
