A camel toe can happen to any woman wearing pants. Not only stretchy yoga pants or leggings, but also jeans can show your labia under your pants. This is embarrassing for some, after all the clothing should cover the intimate area, not just cover it!

This is how camel toes form

The risk of camel toes increases especially with high-waisted trousers , trousers made of thin and stretchy material and hot pants. A camel toe occurs when your pants are too tight against your crotch and the outline of your labia is drawn.

This is embarrassing for many of those affected, because in Kenya a camel toe is still considered a total fashion mishap. But what can I do about my labia showing through my pants if I don’t want to do without certain pants altogether? We explain what is important and how you go through life without a camel toe.

The right cut saves the step

In fact, the right cut and well-fitting pants are much more important than the material of your garment. Because even with jeans that are too tight, a camel toe can appear, which you may not get with your perfectly fitting leggings. A camel toe is definitely not because of your figure or your anatomy. Any woman can catch the mishap. But this is how you prevent:

1. BUY PANTS WITH MULTIPLE SEAMS AT THE CROTCH

A pant with a single seam in the crotch always carries the risk that this seam will slip between your labia. A camel toe is created. But there are trousers that have V-shaped seams in the crotch. The seams in the triangle give your pants stability in the crotch.

2. WEAR A LOW WAIST

Basically, the higher the waist, the tighter the crotch fits your vulva. Since high waists usually pull your pants a bit higher, a camel toe can result. If you have chosen high-waist trousers, several seams in the crotch, high-quality material and supporting underwear are important in order not to commit a fashion faux pas.

3. QUALITY SPEAKS FOR ITSELF!

The cheaper the pants, the thinner and more unstable the material. The seams are often not so well made and the fabric wears out quickly. In addition, cheap models warp quickly. Even if they fit well in the changing room and the first time you wear them, that’s not the case after the first few washes! Then it quickly happens that your pants pull between your labia.

So it’s definitely worth shelling out a little more money, especially for special occasions, but to be sure that you don’t have to worry about a camel toe.

4. WEAR STURDY UNDERWEAR!

Underwear gives your pants even more stability in the crotch. The likelihood of the fabric slipping between your labia is less if you wear thicker panties. The more stable the fabric of the underpants, the better and the safer the camel toe protection.

Will the camel toe become the next fashion trend in Kenya?

I am not quite sure if the camel toes I see in the streets are intentional or fashion mishaps. But they are so common that one may safely assume that  they may be the next fashion trend. In fact, it is already popular in Asia. Some online clothes shops are even selling fake camel toe knickers and pants. In any case, this trend of clearly defined labia is doing the rounds right now. Some provocative celebrities wear such labia pants.
