The 6 Best Ways to Avoid Camel Toe in Leggings



It’s a Monday and the gym is packed...

You’ve just finished a particularly tough set of squats and your legs are feeling pretty toasted. You catch a glimpse of yourself in one of the gym’s mirrors and you see it: the dreaded camel toe. Ladies, we’ve all been there. The gym can be awkward enough with all the grunting and sweating - no one wants to feel like there’s a billboard for "the goods" on their crotch. Here are the six most important tips for avoiding camel toe with leggings:
1. Wear leggings without a front rise seam
The most common culprit of camel toe with leggings is a front seam that runs right through the center of your crotch, creating tension and unwanted cleavage down there. Seriously, who designed that?! The best and easiest way to avoid this is to buy leggings that don’t have a front rise seam.

2. Wear the right size

Wearing the wrong size is another common cause of camel toe. Even leggings that wouldn’t normally be problematic can show lady parts if they’re too tight. If you’re having this issue with lots of your leggings, consider sizing up. 

3. Don't go commando

Instead of commando, try wearing thicker seamless panties, like the Aerie Seamless Thong. Seamless underwear are made, you guessed it, without seams so they don’t give you a big underwear outline either. Win-win! 

4. Wear darker colored fabrics

Lighter colored fabrics tend to make folds and lines more visible, so choose leggings that have  darker colors like black, gray, navy or burgundy. These colors are also versatile and easy to pair with lots of different tops.

5. Buy leggings with a crotch gusset

A crotch gusset is a sewn into the crotch area where all the seams would usually meet. The gusset shape helps with longevity of the garment and also helps reduce the potential for camel toe by shifting seams away from the area. When you’re shopping, choose leggings that have a gusset as a feature.

6. Choose leggings with thicker fabrics

Thinner fabrics are more likely to show all of your body’s natural little lines and lumps, so if camel toe has been an issue for you in the past, shop for leggings that are made from thicker, heavier fabrics.
