A: This is a great question, and also provides the answer to another question a few people raised: “Why do I always have to pull mine up?” Just like regular leggings, skinny jeans, and work-out pants, the snug fit can mean constant readjusting. When you move in certain ways (for example, reaching to grab something above you on a shelf) you stretch your skin and torso up out of the garment, and because they fit tightly, your body won’t settle back down into place in them without a little help. The solution, says Daly, is a high waistband, which will keep everything tucked in place. Try SPRWMN’s real version, or Aritzia’s affordable crowd-pleasers (which also come in several colors and faux-suede as well, and are machine-washable).
