Brilliant Leggings Hack Puts An End To The Dreaded Camel Toe

Ladies, who loves to wear leggings, biker shorts, and shapewear? If you answered a resounding "that's me," then this latest TikTok hack is for you. How often have you worn leggings with a short top and said, "Oops!" after realizing there's a visible wedgie or camel toe situation going on? Ha, ha!

If you're okay with that, then that's cool, but I prefer to be a little modest in that area. So when I stumbled upon this latest fashion hack, I was all over it. Let's take a look.

A woman who used to be a dancer recently posted her awesome fashion hack on TikTok.

Sophia Edmunds, a senior at Kent State University, who's majoring in fashion merchandising just blew women's minds away with her clever fashion hack.

It all stems from her 15 years of dancing experience.

Back in middle school Sophia literally lived in spandex, but she found it uncomfortable at times. So she came up with a genius way to fix that. I'm going to tell you exactly what you can do to fix the wedgie issue.

Here's how it goes.

Take any old bra pad and cut a little triangle shape. Then you will stick this triangle into the insert of your thong or your underwear. You must've noticed the little flap that comes with the undies, right? That's what I'm talking about here.

Once this insert is there, you'll really notice the difference.

Now you can easily go for a walk without out worrying about any wedgies, ha, ha. And doing activities like yoga, working out, and going for a bike ride won't seem as daunting.

Sophia came out with this hack mostly for comfort, but it also works as an aesthetic feature.

Once you're finished with the insert, you can simply wash it by hand to throw it in the washer with the rest of your laundry.

How awesome is that?

Sophia has had her insert for years and just keeps reusing it. There's a trick to making it comfortable, though. It's in the way you cut it. Sophia says that the bra pad has a little bit of a scoop at the bottom, which is very comfortable, and it gives you a straight line in between your legs.

Aha! Now I get it.

In fact, some ladies posted that they saw her video, got to work, made the insert, put it in, and — IT WORKED! Ta-da!

The camel toe issue is now solved for all, haha. Can you believe that? Sophia did address people saying that a maxi pad could work too, but she confirmed that she tried it, and it was super uncomfortable.

So there you go.

Sophia has saved you time from trying to wear a sanitary pad. Instead, try making this little insert and give it a go yourself. I'm going to do that. I just need to find an old bra cup. Honestly, I'm super excited to try this fashion hack. Finally — a great solution to get rid of the pesky camel toe.
