I do NOT mean to hurt anyone's feelings here but this really bothers me. I guess I'm referring to spandex pants. Granted a lot of girls look absolutely beautiful in them. However, there are some figures that just should not be seen in tight pants.They only accentuate a flaw that should not be flaunted.

Some people can pull it off, but normally not so much. They are best with a shirt that covers your behind at least, and should be accentuated with flattering pieces.

If I can see camel toe or worse, it's hard not to look.

I wear them while working out, or biking - other than that, no one needs to see my thighs in clothing that tight lol.


If they are see through that's a big no no on Oct 19, 2015 @ 03:15 pm

Honestly I only get bothered by girls wearing see through ones.. other then that it's fine to wear them with a long shirt or a long cardigan or sweater that covers your bum. I only wear leggings when I wear a long shirt or long cardigan. I personally don't want people looking at my butt so I try to hide it and be modest as much as possible!

every body is different, and everyone needs to cater to what looks best on them, not what is in style :D

I wholeheartedly agree. Actually, I stopped myself from presenting this for a forum topic becasue I assumed it would be deemed offensive. I truly believe that the bigger some of these girls are, the tighter their pants are. They look ridiculous. DO NOT want to offend anyone, but I think there are just way too many Jlo worshippers/copy cats out there

Like see a lot of bigger ladies wearing leggings but sometimes I find if it is a thicker material it actually doesn't look too bad. It looks even better with a tunic or something. I can't stand girls that wear the see through pants that show everything. I don't appreciate seeing that lol

In my opinion it should be whatever the person feels good in.. Personally i am not a fan of spandex or leggings but i say if u like them then wear them. Never worry about what people think...life is too short for that!

You mean leggings, right? on Mar 01, 2016 @ 11:09 am

Just to be sure we are talking about plus size or larger body size women wearing leggings?
A friend of mine, who has no filter, always says bigger girls shouldn't wear leggings at all because their legs look like fat stuffed into sausage casings. Thats a little harsh. I would never say that.
I think a lot of times it can be pulled off and I will explain below but first I have to just say as much as I'd like to think I'm all for body confidence it takes just one look at the website "the people of Walmart " to make me rethink that LOL
I truly do think you should dress for your body type and what is flattering for YOU, not what the current trend is.
Having said that, I think most people can get away with leggings IF you think of them as tights (opaque pantyhose) and not pants.
As long as you wear a tunic, skirt, dress, long sweater or cardi and long top underneath to cover below the bottom (AND front!!! Mantra: Just say no to cameltoe) you should be okay. If big calves are an issue try tall structured boots and maybe try monochromatic colors to not "cut yourself off" and appear leaner and taller.
I myself wear leggings but, again, not as pants. There's always layers and / or length. No one needs to see my fat.
I think the trickiest body type to pull of leggings is bigger, short girls. It's just too much when you use tall boots and long tops. The look completly cuts her off. There are other more flattering comfy clothes.
Lululemons make any girls butt look amazing. The person who made that fabric should be swept into the clothing hall of fame. The fabric is thick and flattering to mostly every person ive seen wear them. But I guess we're talking about leggings not yoga pants...
In any case, each woman has a unique beauty of her own. The one within is the most flattering :)
Have a beautiful day chicks, and embrace your beauty whether you're for or against leggings. Xo

I wear spandex/leggings because I like the way they look on me and because they are extremely comfortable so that's probably why bigger body types like wearing them too. I think girls should wear whatever they feel comfy in, personally I'm more bothered by seeing a girl at the grocery store with shorts so small that her butt cheeks are showing lol, maybe that's just me.

I personally wear leggings / spandax pants only either with a long sweater dress with black boots

or with a long (covers the bum t-shirt) when working out

that is my style

For an entire year of my life I wore nothing but leggings simply because I loved how comfy they are. I think that's why people wear leggings. Now I wouldn't wear leggings as pants, but as a layering piece, but I'm not going to judge people because I know where they're coming from.

I think people should dress for their body type in addition to wearing what they feel comfortable in.
