When shopping for plus-size clothing, it’s important to know your body type and what styles flatter your figure. High-waisted leggings, for example, can provide tummy control and support for your curves, while compression leggings can smooth everything out. Also, consider the fabric of the leggings—look for materials with plenty of stretch and breathability, such as cotton or spandex blends. Most of all, don’t be afraid to try different styles and colors. These 10 leggings are a versatile wardrobe staple that can be dressed up or down, so have fun with the process and find what works for you.
