Wear or Die: Crotch Vs. Hips

Harem-pants

  Despite our much-discussed loathing of the crime of fashion that is the drop-crotch pant, we don't think we've forced our readers to contemplate wearing a pair yet. Well, that has to change, of course, but what could possibly be more horrible than a crotch that reaches your knees, we wondered? Well, how about hips that would make it difficult to fit through doors? The Fashion Police have been alarmed to find more and more garments with huge, puffy hips appearing in our cells recently, and so we got to wondering: if our readers HAD to wear either a dropped crotch or a pair of massive hips – which would they choose?

This is the choice that's now before you. On the left, Mango's harem pants. On the left, Miss Mars' big-hipped trousers. And on you?  Well, that's what we'd like you to tell us. Imagine that you HAVE to wear one of the items shown above: which would you choose, and why?

    Drop crotch, with a dress over the top you’d never be able to tell. My hips are plenty big enough!

    Hips, I think that would be more flattering for my figure than anything that drapes soft jersey over my tummy.

    I will have to choose the large hip pants also. At least it exaggerated a female characteristic and doesn’t seem toe create a characteristic we lack.

    The crotch pants remind me of the MC Hammer glory days!
    Can I wear neither and just go naked?

    Er… the big hips, as I guess that’s better than looking like my drawers are full.

    Drop crotch with a nice, modern looking Sari.
    No-one would ever suspect anything but me feeling “ethnic” that day.

    I just don’t know…both are genuinely and equally damned by the lord almighty. I suppose the drop crotch ones look SLIGHTLY more comfortable, though I imagine they twist around the ankles if you sit wrong.

    The hip pants remind me of old fashioned breeches or director’s pants. I could live with that look a lot easier then the MC Hammer backup dancer look.

    I’m going for the hips. At least it will look intentional. It won’t look like long underwear or sweatpants gone horribly wrong.

    I’d go drop crotch and just sit with my legs crossed all day. I’d probably walk with my legs crossed too. At least they look kind of comfy…

    Hips. I just would really hate walking around wearing what is basically a giant diaper.

    I’d choose having horrific hips than looking like I have anything extra and am secretly a man.

    definitely hip pants- I prefer not to look like a little kid when they have a full diaper.

    I choose the big hipped trousers. I’d rather look big than abnormal.

    Perhaps the drop crotch if in a very, very, very moderated version… no – on second thought – die.

    Hips! At least they’re edgy and stylized, and don’t look like some crazy wardrobe malfunction. Baggy-crotch pants kind of look like an extreme case of what happens when you hang certain sweaters in your closet; stretching, sagging, etc. At least, those do..
