    Actually for some woman they prefer wearing bell bottom pants. In wearing a bell bottom pants we consider this a life saving pants for height enchancement.
    I do also prefer wearing a bell bottom pants in denim also. It gives you extra height you would also feel that you are confidently sexy on those pants.
