I work in a hospital, overseeing their volunteer program. We have a lot of college-age volunteers, and we have a strict dress code and a "no jeans"
policy. Many of our nice young lady volunteers, who otherwise have a modicum of common sense, seem to find it perfectly acceptable to wear yoga pants
with short tops, because they are "not jeans", so technically (in their minds) they are within the dress code. I have to lecture the volunteers far
more often about yoga pants than jeans. I just don't think it's appropriate for them to be walking around in a professional environment with their
bottoms hanging out in form-fitting pants. And every time I have to correct them on this, I feel like a little old granny and a scold. But seriously,
it is just not okay in a professional environment. It's a battle I fight every day now. I've been pushed to the point that I'll allow them as long as
their butts are covered up with a long tunic or shirt. I don't want half my job to be taken up with asking the volunteers to please cover their
bottoms, but there you have it.
Personally, I love yoga pants, but I do wear long shirts with them if I wear them in public, which is rare. I still have an okay butt for my advanced
age, but no one needs to see it!
