The Thing About Leggings


Do I think they're cute?

Yes. Yes, I do.

Do I wear them?

No, I'm in my late 20's (like, really late 20's).

But here's the deal. If you're wearing a dress that barely covers your bum and you have leggings underneath, guess what? You're still only wearing a dress that barely covers your bum. So is it appropriate to wear to a funeral/church/meeting with the President/job interview? Um, no.

  1. Dang it! I feel the same way, but I was hoping that you would have some decent rationalization to allow me to commence wearing them. They are cute, even if they're scandalous.

  2. Everyone around here seems to think that they double as pants too... I'm not thinking that is Ok!

  3. I put them under just about every dress/skirt my kids wear. Of course they are 5 and 2 so I'm pretty sure they wouldn't look scandalous if they showed up to church in a diaper cover and nothing else!

  4. YES! It really bothers me to see so many women wearing them to church and other formal occasions. Although they do look comfy, they're still not appropriate for grown women to wear to formal events.

  5. Agreed! If the "dress" you're wearing doesn't come to your knees, then wearing leggings under such a "dress" is still inappropriate church attire.
