Married Women Should Never Wear Leggings As Pants

Married Women Should Never Wear Leggings As Pants

There has been a long seeded debate over the last couple of years on whether or not leggings should be worn as pants. Everyone has set up camp on one side or the other, one firmly believing that leggings cover enough to be modestly worn as pants, but the other has shouted from the roof tops that wearing leggings as pants is inappropriate and absolutely not something any woman should do, let alone a woman is spoken for in a committed relationship such as marriage.

At the end of the day, it is up to the woman on what she is or isn’t going to wear. If she chooses to wear leggings as pants, it is up to her partner to accept her for who she is. However, she should also consider her partner’s feelings on what she chooses to wear out and about.

Should never wearing leggings as pants

While leggings definitely have their time and place, every-day wear as pants isn’t one of them if you want to remain modest and not show off every nook, cranny, and crevice on your lower half. Some of the appropriate atmospheres for leggings are:

  1. The gym. Leggings are great for the gym, they are less restrictive than sweats and in some cases work-out leggings are made to wick sweat away.

  2. Yoga. This is of course where leggings got their foundation. Leggings and Yoga pants are meant to let you move freely. They are made to fit snug to your form while you control your movements. In this situation, you’re not going to want baggy clothes hooking around your big toe.

  3. In your home. If you’re not too keen on the idea of wearing sweat pants or PJ bottoms, you can wear leggings around the house doing your every-day chores.

The major reason why wearing leggings as a pant isn’t overly appropriate is because of their too-tight nature. They’re made to fit snug to the body, and that doesn’t always flatter the woman’s body or leave much to the imagination. While all women should consider this, if a woman is in a committed relationship she does have a responsibility to keep her partner’s feelings in mind when going out for the day. Chances are if wearing a low cut top and miniskirt to a supermarket would make their partner uncomfortable, leggings as pants would do the same thing. If you’re not sure if your partner would mind, open a dialog about it; find a synthesis between your fashion sense and your partner’s comfort level.

Just because you shouldn’t wear leggings as pants, doesn’t mean you have to toss your favorite pair into the garbage. In fact, there are plenty of ways to wear leggings modestly that will respect you, your fashion senses, and your partner’s comfort.

  1. Wear a tunic shirt or dress over the top of your leggings. This is extremely fashion-forward and on-point with the ever popular layering trend.

  2. Wear a long sweater that covers your bottom paired with boots and a chunky belt and you’re left with a chic look.

  3. Pair leggings with a skirt and your favorite top.

As you can see, there are still plenty of uses for leggings even if you want to wear them modestly and give the rest of us a little bit of a break from the too-tight fashion statement.
