Plus Size “Layering” Leggings
I put my favorite layering leggings (if you remember, my favorite thicker ponte leggings are here) under an adorable knit dress. I tend to purchase these leggings in the “cropped” length. For me, at 5’4″ tall, the cropped version are ankle length, which is just where I want them. I also have them in the full length, which are a little too long, even after I wash and dry them. So if you are taller than 5’4″ the full length will probably be best, but 5’4″ and shorter should look into the “cropped.” They also come in a capri length.
Pro tip: When layering knits (or just about any fabric) in the winter, I always spray down with Static Guard first to prevent the dreaded static cling! There is nothing worse than having your flattering “float over” the tummy or rear tunic clinging to your under-pinnings. I also used to keep a can in my desk at work when I had an office job.
One wintry day, while at work, my dress kept clinging to my tights/Spanx. More specifically, the static was causing the dress to ride up, not only exposing most of my Spanx shorts, but also clinging to my bum in all of the wrong ways!
I was constantly pulling the dress down and trying to “adjust” myself. At times, I couldn’t walk without literally holding the hem of my dress at the sides in an attempt to avoid indecent exposure. And the worse part was I had a meeting with important people that afternoon. This was not the day to have this issue!
So I decided try to “Google” a solution. The internet, in it’s infinite wisdom, told me that temporarily placing “metal” between the layers of fabric would “neutralize” the static issue. So I started with running a wire clothes hanger up and down my backside in the ladies room. Just so you know, that is a more difficult task than you might think. And it failed.
So after a few other attempts with various metal items, I ended up locking my office door and rubbing my Spanx-clad rear on a metal filing cabinet! A low moment. Lol. But, desperate times called for desperate measures. Needless to say, that did not work either.
Long story short, nothing solved my issue. And I was not comfortable or confident for my meeting. The next day I put cans of Static Guard in both of my offices. And now, especially during the winters, I rarely leave my house without spraying down my clothes. So, please, learn from my ultra embarrassing static-ass-trophe, um, I mean static catastrophe, and keep some Static Guard on hand!
