Pleated pants have long been maligned for their unflattering properties, and that’s mainly true as the extra gathered fabric creates bulk around the stomach and hips. Instead, if you’re wanting to slim down, look for flat-front styles that create a clean, lean line across your waist. For even more of a slenderizing illusion, a waistband that’s at least one-inch wide (two inches is even better) will minimize any tummy troubles, as well. Thinner waistbands don’t equate to a thinner look — they can emphasize extra girth by cutting into any extra bulge in that area.
