A great pair of pants and some Lycra on the thighs will do wonders for any shape!
In that case, I would like to see what you consider to be the right cut of pants for the woman whose profile is "five by five" (as in "five feet high and five feet wide")!
Seriously, for ladies who have any "bulges" that are, ah, less than attactive, a skirt or a dress will diminish the visual impact in ways that pants cannot.
