Best Black Leggings To Smooth Lumps & Bumps

I’ve answered many style questions over the years for my Ask Alison column like, “What dress is right for my body shape” to “Can I wear hosiery with my little black dress” to “What are the best heels to wear with boyfriend jeans.” This time a client told me she loves leggings, but she can’t find a pair that smoothes out her body. She said she was a bit jealous of her friends that seem to live in yoga pants all day. She wasn’t looking for a workout pair of leggings, but instead wanted the best black leggings to smooth out her lumps and bumps. She wanted comfortable leggings to wear running errands, traveling on her regular flights between LA and NYC and even going out for casual movie night.

She asked, I answered.

These leggings are not for your workout wardrobe. These are the best black leggings to smooth your body. No lumps, no bumps and quite frankly when I tried them on my butt looked damn good in them. Hold Your Haunches may not be a pretty name, but they do what the name says. The full length legging, capri and bootcut have a full compression garment built into the legging so it’s not just the outer legging fabric that does the work. And yes, I’ll admit it took me a moment to slide into them on the first try, but now the bootcut version is my go-to traveling pant for flights cross-country that I pair with a v-neck cashmere sweater. Sometimes when I seek the style answer for a client, I find a solution for myself as well.
