Several weeks ago I asked for help with styling a long shirt/short tunic. I was uncertain about wearing it with just regular heavy leggings. Since then I've tried some things, and especially ordered a number of ponte leggings and/or skinny pants in Tall sizes. I've tried them on and taken pictures. Acceptable under short tunics or not? (Note: I am NOT interested in showing my back, so it's more what these look like from the front.) What's the best fit?

This is complicated by my, um, lush curves. This was actually pretty humbling; I'm at my highest weight point right now, and I'm fully confronting it (and working on it). But even when I shed the excess, I will always be quite curvy. I think Suz said once, "Every pant on me is a skinny." On me, it's starting to look like every skinny is a legging!

#1-5: ponte shaping legging. Nice high waist that is actually too big.
#6-10: scuba skinny pant. Hard to tell, but there are curving seamlines.
#11-15: textured skinny pant in a heavy knit with flat overlocked seams down center and back of each leg.
#16-20: skinny ponte pants. Has a real fly and back pockets.
