So my boyfriend and I were watching Saturday Night Fever the other night. He made a comment about disliking high waisted pants on women because it makes the butt look like it's a foot long. I commented that it brings the eye to how small a woman's waist is, and only a crazy person would think a butt would be a foot long. Guys what do you think about these pants? Do you like them? Dislike them? Does it make a woman's booty look gigantic?
It's oldschool, which is not necessarily bad, but I also find it a bit too hipster-like and not very attractive. It does elongates the butt and accentuates the whole waist, while shortening the torso. It just messes up the proportions of the female body.
Booooooo! Hissssssss! Not a fan. Looks very 1970s. Pants should accentuate a girl's butt, and including the lower back in the equation is no dice. I'm probably stuck in the mid-2000s here, but I prefer the low-rise look better.
I love them and have many. I have a pair kinda like this link but light blue denim. One time I wore them, my roommate (male) stopped me, told me to turn around and said "every woman should have a pair of those jeans". Lol. Whenever I wore them he'd shake his head and just say, "them jeans..."
So while a lot of guys might say they don't like them, the right pair will just look good. I think they definitely suit a certain body type though.
