The Sisterhood of the Perfect Pants

Sally Bergesen

It's February 2013, and if I'm being totally honest with you, I have to say it's taken me six years to make the perfect running pants (not tights or knickers, mind you, but full length, great fit pants that can be worn for speed or style). Why six years? God knows. It seems simple: two tubes and a waistband, right? But when you get into it. When you reallllly get into it, you learn that women are like snow flakes...unique majestic creatures who understand no two are alike: "My hips are wide, but I'm short..." "I have a tiny waist but a round rump..." "I have a long torso but short legs..." "I have strong thighs but two belly buttons..." and so on.
