2013-03-09 04:29:12 PM  
I can proudly say that I do not own a single pair of leggings, being well aware that there is no one on God's green earth that should have to be subjected to seeing me in them. I have too much love for my fellow man.


Guess the only ones I really object to are the cheap ones that are actually just footless tights. If I know your underwear style, color, and pattern, and possibly can read the tag... you probably failed at getting dressed.

illannoyin: They should only be available in small and medium.


Nope, I am almost 6ft and very slim, but there is no way anything marked small or medium would ever fit me. I only wear leggings as footless tights though, with a short dress or skirt.
 
2013-03-09 04:45:42 PM  
Leggings can be worn in public, but should only be worn with either a long shirt, short dress or preferably, a tunic.

Thicker ones can be worn combined with anything if it is on a girl of 7 or under.

Personally, I don't know what her beef with wearing jeans is. If you have to choose between muffin top and butt cleavage you are in the wrong style. I have nice fitting, decent looking ladies jeans that don't cause either problem and I am in a size 14 so I am sure most gals can find equally reasonable options.

Because any amount of matter, even lint, in pockets on leggings would make you look tumor ridden.

BarkingUnicorn: I still don't get the difference between leggings, tights, and skinny jeans.


leggings are spandex/cotton, but depending on the blend they might be closer to tights or jeans- jeggings would have more cotton so they are closer to really stretchy jeans

tights are spandex or lycra or another synthetic very stretchy fabric

skinny jeans are just cotton, they don't have to have any spandex or stretch (but usually they have a little)

That being said, I'm no expert on matters sexual, but I've noticed there is no correlation between what I like to see and who I like to be with. The strongest gut reaction I've ever experienced to a woman was a skinny blonde girl with buck teeth and big glasses. No joke.

And the super shapely brunettes with muscular legs that I love to see, I didn't enjoy being with. It was a personality thing. The kind of women that spend hours at the gym to get those results have all been mentally unhinged in my experience. Something deeply wrong with the gym muscle women.

God, no. I'm not that big, but after three babies I know better than to inflict my less than sylphlike physique on the world.

Leggings are thicker, typically made of some cotton/spandex blend, and are usually footless.

Tights are thicker, opaque pantyhose.

Skinny jeans are jeans that are designed to be fitted from waist to ankle.

It's not that complicated.
