Flattering clothes

Some tips from the show, "Booty" size on 4/28/2006 on the Oprah Winfrey show:

>>Uniform dark wash
>>Straight leg from booty to the shoe (not too tight in the thigh and knee)
>>Flat and low back pocket (no high pockets or extra flaps)
>>Alter, for the right length & waist
>>Wide waist band and/or belt
>>Jacket should bisect the booty
>>Slightly dropped waist
>>Slightly flaired, straight leg, or boot cut leg
>>No capri

Brands recommended:
>>Michael Kors: fabulous wide leg jean for booty, hip, thigh issues
>>Citizens of Humanities
>>AG Club Jeans: recommended for Oprah
>>Long & Lean by Gap: Tricia Year Wood everyday
>>LE Tahari: Tricia Year Wood designer

Perfect black pants
>>low midrise
>>wide band (around waist)
>>good quality fabric to skim the leg
>>mid width leg pant
>>brand: Akris "classic side zip pant" $700
>>brand: Banana Republic "Martin" $98
>>brand: Gap Stretch "Curvy" $49

Underware suggestions

>>Nude thong under white pants
>>Seamless boy short or thong
>>Spanx

Khaki suggestions:
