EEEK! Well here is your unflattering Polocross picture. First of all these pants come in sizes 2-8 in these parts so that tells you right there that these pants are made for long, lean legs. I think even if you have fuller legs or large butt and thighs you can wear these but you must, must have long legs. I was able to fit in to the 8 quite comfortably and it didn’t feel like the fabric was stretched at all so if you are a 10 don’t let that stop you from trying on the 8. These pants really exaggerated my leg proportions with the slim fit tapering. It’s too bad because I actually liked them and would wear them if they didn’t skew me so bad. As you can tell, I have checked my vanity and ego at the door and am fully prepared to accept ridicule but I wanted you to see how these fit on someone that is not slender in the leg department and quite short. It makes my thighs look big but because of the tapered legs it makes my calves look small and very short. There was a lot of material bunched up at my ankles too. Love the pants, hate them on me. If they were just Denim Wunder Unders with the same pockets on the sides and none of the line details or two toned luon they would have been perfect for me, but then again they would lose that polocross look completely. I tried on the demim ones and they were really soft and stretchy so these made me want to get a pair of Wunder Grooves in denim which I have never even tried on if you can believe. Have you been to the Gap lateley? they have these new jeggings (legging/jeans) that are a material much like luon denim but very, very cheap looking. When I walked past the display before I thought for sure they were jeans material but when I went in to have a closer look I realized that they were actually stretchy legging material made to look like denim. So there you go, your Wunder Unders should get lots of use this fall because the leggings look is still in.
