Despite the name, yoga pants are NOT pants y'all!

So I went to the grocery store yesterday. I usually go early in the morning when I can have the place to myself, but I was forced to go mid-day. I swear every third woman was wearing yoga pants or leggings with their ass hanging out! Most of them had decent bodies so I'm not 'fat shaming' or anything. It just irks me. When I was a kid I got it hammered into me that if you wear legging you have to be wearing something on top to cover your hiney. Would these women go out in public with only pantyhose on the bottom? Cuz it's just one step away from that.

So, what's your verdict ATS? Post your opinion on this! Are you like "Yoga pants for everyone!"


or "Cover your ass!"???

I mean i love to see a good booty!

But im never too keen when my partner goes out in "Yoga pants"!

Selfish ideology of the white male patriarchy i guess hahaha!

I am not a fan of yoga pants. The material is so thin, that when it stretches, it becomes transparent, and where I live, there are far too few women who understand that a knicker line is a small price to pay for a covered pubic region.

Its not like I look for this stuff, but when you are on the escalator at a shopping precinct, and you turn around and at head height is a butt, the butt of someone who has just bent over a little to tie their shoe, and you were neither expecting it, nor in any way comfortable with such a random encounter, and you can see all the way to China....

It puts a complexion upon the day that one might ordinarily want to avoid.

If you're homosexual that's cool but stop trying to ruin it for the rest of us women loving straight men.

Yeah most men would consider that hitting the jackpot. Sheesh.

I am straight.

I just do not want to be flashed at accidentally. I have no problem with people flashing at me deliberately at all, but... yeah no. Not my thing, the whole partial nudity because freedom... not a fan.

Women are given a green light in society to be sexually provocative; it's a sign of pride.

A man goes into a store wearing yoga pants and security is just poised over 911 button; it's a sign of perversion.

It's stupid both ways yeah.

Yeah, it's one of those things that's great in theory.... but then you get stuck behind someone that's not a perfect 10.


I'm not trying to be hatin' on my fellow women, and I'm not trying to body shame anyone but... sometimes it's better to leave something to the imagination.

Example: One older lady was pushing her cart ahead of me. Technically she wasn't overweight or anything. But... the weight was NOT in the right places. Lmao! And her top was nowhere near long enough to cover her oddly shaped posterior. Like TrueBrit stated....it's like a car wreck, you can't look away, your eyes just get accosted and there's nothing you can do about it.

I'm offended by people in general, so I try to avoid going out into public-
alas, I'm forced to have a job and can't afford to just go start a personal farm- so I'm still stuck going out.

Dress codes at work keep people wearing real pants there- but at the grocery store all bets are off.

I like to see a nice bum as much as the next guy, but in this part of the world, most bums aren't nice.

Golly gee... I have to confess... I love my yoga pants. They're my go-to. But you're absolutely right about the long tops being mandatory. And I don't even have any butt to speak of! They just hang on me!!! Nevertheless, I always wear long shirts with yoga pants.

OMG! If I saw a man in yoga pants I would lose my sh*t!!!


Bulges for days!!! A la male ballet dancers!


Side note: I don't think a lot of women wear them to be sexually provocative. I honestly think they're doing it for comfort. But seriously, if your top doesn't reach past the butt shelf you really should throw on skinny jeans or something instead.

I wear them at home or when exercising but not in public. Some are thicker than others but many are sheer in the right light or when stretched (like bending over).

I dress modestly because I respect my husband and to be an appropriate example to my kids.

Yoga pants can look good and they are very comfy but it doesn't mean I want to wear them on all occasions.

To each their own ...it doesn't offend me to see women wearing yoga pants while running errands. I get the appeal.

Yoga pants are fine but need size restrictions

Agreed. They aren't really pants. My 10 year old daughter loves leggings. But...she is only allowed to wear them with a top that comes down below her bottom. I see women wearing this every day. It has nothing to do with her size....it just seems less than completely dressed. Like you are heading to or from the gym. Clearly, most aren't. Some ladies make it look nice. I have a pair myself, but I wear them at home.

Um, if they're wearing those pants they know what they're doing. There is mo "Accidentally" about it. Women can think for themselves, you know?

See, I have absolutely no problem with that. I will totally rock leggings....with a dress or tunic over them.

Like I said, I think this was my mom's pet peeve and it got hammered into my brain pretty good. Along with these classics:

1. It's 'by' accident. Nothing is 'on' accident.
2. Slower traffic keep right.

I don't know if it bothers me one way or the other. I can appreciate and attractive/fit woman in form hugging clothes just as much as the next person so...yeah.

At my daughter's school there is a dress code in place as well at my work that if one wears leggings, they must also wear a longer shirt. In both areas, I see/understand the rule/need.

As one of my daughters' female role models I think it's important, for me, to dress appropriate for the setting and I would like to instill that in her as well along with fostering her freedom of expression.

For Halloween I wore leggings with my costume and it was short. Perhaps it would have been considered inappropriate. But, it was a costume and I don't, specifically, know what kind of legs a pumpkin is supposed to have.

I think to each their own maybe...

You don't think they wear them because they enjoy all the dropped jaws and wolf whistles? They wear them for attention and affirmation.

Maybe it's something only a dude can detect..

I wear them all the time, either with a long top or made of thicker material. But honestly, unless they become transparent, I don't really care about others wearing them.

I think women have a lot more to offer than just looking sexy.. and additionally think there are ways of looking gorgeous by not showing too much. Classy-beautiful is a good look, I think.

A smile is the sexiest thing a woman can wear, IMO.
