So, I’ve really been trying to wear these pants to determine whether or not to hem them, and I think I won’t. They’re an okay length on me – I do wish they were just a teeny tiny bit shorter, but I might actually just wash and dry them (gasp!) and see if they shrink in length just a little bit. I prefer showing a sliver of leg lately, as I think it’s a more interesting look, for me especially, so as not to look too covered up, but I can work with this length generally.
When I put these on, I originally wore them with this underwear by Land of Women*, which is super high waisted and a bit compressive (not that comfortable to be honest, and a little tight on me in the medium) to hold my hip-bits in a little more, but I had to change into my regular-old organic cotton Only Hearts bikini panties because the high waisted underwear with the high waisted pants was too much pulling in the crotch region. Sorry for the TMI.
But that also got me thinking about VPL. Andrea left a comment on one of my posts about these pants that she was having trouble not getting VPL with these, and then that day or soon after I read a conversation somewhere about body suits and if they should ONLY be thongs, because otherwise what’s the point? The bodysuit issue aside, I was interested in the idea that was part of that convo that women should NOT have VPL Like, God forbid it LOOK like we’re wearing undergarments.
I am not a fan of VPL and try to avoid it generally, but I’m not overly concerned about it. I love my Hanky Panky thongs and tend to wear them a lot with tighter jeans or pants I don’t want to show a crease in from my underwear, but that’s just because they’re comfortable. If they weren’t, VPL be damned…
How do you feel about VPL? Who else has received the Everlane wide leg cropped pants? What do you think about them? I’m hearing that nearly everyone is sizing up…
