How to Hide Big Thighs
Shopping to hide big thighs requires a little foresight. (shopping image by hannahfelicity from

When shopping for clothing or swimsuits, it is important to choose items that flatter your assets and disguise qualities you do not wish to draw attention to. If you have large thighs, finding clothing that does not emphasise them can be tricky, especially when current fashions are dominated by trends like jeggings (jeans plus leggings) that leave little room to hide your thighs. But you can still dress to flatter and look fashionable doing it. The best tactic to hide big thighs is to distract the eye.

Skill level:
Moderately Challenging


  1. 1

    Choose tops that are either fitted to draw attention to your upper body and away from your thighs, or that have horizontal strips or patterns to make your top seem equal in size to your thighs. If wearing leggings, pair with a long tunic or other top.

  2. 2

    Select coats with wide lapels or shoulder pads to bring attention to your shoulders.

  3. 3

    Select skirts or trousers with pinstripes or other vertical details to visually lengthen and slim the thighs. To fully hide big thighs, choose a-line or circle skirts.

  4. 4

    Go for shoes or boots with a substantial heel. A tall, chunky heel adds height to your legs, making them look longer.

Tips and warnings

  • Do not wear trousers or skirts that are tight in the thigh, such as bell bottoms or leggings.
  • Wear long coats, skirts, or maxi dresses.
