Default cellulite pants from hades

OK, I've just about had it. For years, I've suffered every summer in full length heavy denim jeans, because I can't find a pair of (other) pants that do not showcase my cellulite. I mean a little cellulite is not a big deal, but this goes way beyond that. Yup, I am the cellulite queen, and no matter what type of pant I put on, it shows through in all of it's glory (every last dimple). The absolute worst are khaki type fabrics, which needless to say, would be perfect to wear during the hot months. Other, slightly heavier weight pants are just as bad unless I wear them in very dark colors, defeating the purpose of dressing for hot weather. My question(s) is/are: does anyone else have this problem? How do you work around it? Is there a solution? Thanks in advance for any ideas!

one of my sisters wears cycling shorts under trousers to hide it, and it seems to work okay.

I do the same..wear bike shorts underneath. Junonia has some real nice ones that are "qwik-Wik" and pull moisture away from the skin. They go up to a Size 6 which fits me and several of my supersize friends. So Junonia size charts aren't to accurate for me.

I have a huge heat tolerance, so I blast right through even the hottest of months in my jeans. However, I've never actually considered leg cellulite when buying pants. Personally, I'd just accept it and wear whatever.

Hi Chris,

How about some palazzo pants in a linen or linen/viscose mix? If you pick a traditional linen colour they'll look summery but in addition the slight mix of shades in the blend are a lot more forgiving of dimples than a single flat colour. If they're loose and flow-y in a woven fabric then they'll be cool and flattering too.

Just a thought

Default hmm

i know Junonia, while expensive has some control pants, have you looked at them?? i dont know about spanx, but i would think of them...the other choice i do, i dont know if you like it or not, i have bought slinky dresses from sanctuarie and worn capri pants under them if they are a little more shear, they look great, and i have gotten many compliments on them, and guess what, no so dang hot and informal enough to just wear a great flat with...

Hi Tracey,

I have tried loose, flowy pants (and other clothing) before, but I tend to look awful in them (very sloppy, and unflattering in general). I look and feel best in tailored clothing with a fairly close fitting cut, though not tight. I love linen, but I find that it wrinkles far too easily. Most people look quite lovely in looser, more casual styles, unfortunately, I am not one of them. As soon as I put on something loose, or "easy-cut", or wrinkled, I look dirty, sloppy, and generally unkempt. I think that a very preppy pair of crisp khakis is about as far as I am willing to go in the direction of casual. I know....living on the edge. It's actually all really funny considering that as a teen I was a big time Punk. LOL! How things change!

Which ones do you guys wear? I find that if you get the wrong kind, they will create a bulge in a new place. LOL! Also, do they make you sweaty?

I don't have spanx pants, but I do have one of their tops. It's great, sucks in just enough, but I can still move. Cellulite isn't so much a bother for me (and oh, I have it... in abundance), but I like comfort and no thigh-rub, so I wear bike shorts under skirts and dresses. The ones at Lane Bryant are FANtastic - and the only ones that actually go to my knee and stay there. No roll-ups. Spendy at $26 or so a pop, but for something that works, that's fine. Thin fabric too, so I don't get overheated at all.

I wear bike shorts under summery dresses all the time. I got some cheapies from JMS a million or so years ago, but they've lasted for ages. You might want to check them too.

Samantha,
Can you post a link to the bike shorts you are talking about? I looked at their web page, but they got lots. Thanks!

These are the cheapies at JMS if you're at all interested. If not, just move along... nothing to see here.

I have some pants that are fantastic for this, they are silk twill, straight leg, and they fall in a very flattering way, the fabric has heft but breathes. Actually, it's a bit similar to Tencel, slightly thicker, though.

They were given to me from the wardrobe of a woman who had them made for her, however, so I can't give any buying details.

Not trying to be smug, just thought I'd at least post the fabric as a suggestion to look for since it works so well for me.

1: Keep an eye on the weather, wait for a HUMONGOUS HEAT WAVE in Boston.
2: Pack up! You'll need heavy wool sweaters (black!) and lots of jeans.
3: Fly to Boston for the week.
4: Don aforementioned clothing.
5: Walk around Chinatown from 10am until 3pm each day you are there. Ah, ah, ah, don't roll those sleeves up!

There you go!

I keep my tolerance up by never using a/c in my car, ever. It also helps to love heat a LOT.

I think that sounds like a grand way to cultivate...heat stroke! Or maybe death. One of those. Gawd. More power to you, though--

It was all just a very unfortunate accident in summer 2002.

Hey, no fair! I did those very things (except for the location-substitute NJ for MA), for a whole summer. I even threw in: sitting stuck in traffic on newly paved rt. 80 without the aforementioned a/c in a black car. All I got for it is near heat-stroke. What gives?!

Thanks everyone for your suggestions. I definitely want to try the bike shorts method, but I will have to wait till I have some spending cash.
