Black Clothing is blowing out the blacks.

Hello, please see photo, which is is still from a video shoot with a Canon 5d iii. The black leggings are blowing out the blacks. You can't tell which leg is in front. Any suggestions from a lighting, camera perspective? I'm told this won't happen with more expensive cameras. I could increase the exposure post production, but I don't think there is any information at all in the blacks. I could soak the leggings in bleach and make them more grey, but I'm afraid it would be uneven. I could shine a light from below, and get some bright spots on the bottom surface of the leg, but it wouldn't look like a natural light source. Stumped am I.
