Designer Mary Portas believes a long top is an excellent way to avoid embarrassment when wearing revealing leg wear.
Speaking to the Manchester Evening News during a clothes fitting, she advises fashionistas to pair a long top with leggings to avoid showing off their bum.
"You see what's so wonderful about this top is it covers the bum - no woman wants to show her bum do they?" she told the newspaper.
Comfortable underwear is also an important consideration whenever investing in new legwear.
Last month, model Irina Shayk said that looking sexy is all about feeling confident and comfortable.
Wearing something that makes you feel good will help to boost your confidence and make you look beautiful too, explained Christiano Ronaldo's girlfriend.
"I'm absolutely sure that any woman can be beautiful and sexy and there are no standards of beauty," she said.
