Sleeping in Savasana

My yoga journey

Wearing leggings in public

on January 27, 2015

This is my reaction to reading this blog post by Veronica Partridge. I wasn’t sure if she was serious or not when I first read it but it seems she is. Ignoring the whole god and honoring your husband aspect of the post, to me leggings and yoga pants are not designed for wearing without a long shirt, shorts or skirt over them.

Obviously the exception to this is during a class or when exercising but even then I usually have shorts on the top of leggings as I’ve been behind too many people in thin leggings who haven’t and I don’t want the person behind me being distracted by seeing my underwear. I have enough long length t-shirts, sweaters and casual skirts that I put on after class to walk home that it’s not an issue. Or half of the year it’s cold enough that I wear a jacket that’s long enough anyhow.

I know that a lot of people do wear them in other situations but for all but the most slim it’s not a good look. They show off every lump, bump and squishy bit. Men (and women) will look at your bum if you wear them as trousers and some of those men will lust after you if they look at your bum, it’s a no brainer.

I guess if the biggest issue in my last relationship had been him looking at peoples bum’s in leggings it might not have ended.

Rant over.
