"Um, grainofsand, we need to have a talk. Um...your, um...bulge...is disturbing the patients. I mean, it's bad enough they've got cancer and all, but we just don't have enough eye bleach to go around."

JK! I'm sure you're sexy as hell in your yoga pants!

Lol!
I haven't bought any yet, gotta figure out the curious female clothes size scale first which is apparently unrelated to actual measurements.

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!


Why exactly is form fitting not professional? Have you ever seen a weather lady on tv or a hostess in a nice restaurant? Doctors, professors, and scientists...they wear form fitting clothes. It's more than common. You sound like a granny because you are one. Wear yoga pants wherever you want.

Seriously why are you having private conversations with girls telling them to cover their bottoms when they're already covered by clothes? That's very weird. They're volunteers. You should be thanking them lol.

You would call THIS professional? Is she hot enough to pull it off? Yes. Is it professional? Heck no! I'm really open minded, but if I had a doctor or professor that dressed like this I just could not take them 100% seriously.

And trust me, I friggin HATE business attire. I actually got in trouble when I was in the police academy for 'cussing like a sailor in the dressing room'. It was before we were issued our uniforms and our dress code was 'business'. I had borrowed a dress from my friend's mom and showed up in that and conservative shoes and one of my fellow female cadets was like "Where's your stockings?" I flipped out! I went out of my way to dress conservatively and was getting criticized for not wearing stockings?! Plus the fact that if you can't cuss in a locker room whereTF are you supposed to cuss??? Lmao!

Yoga pants to the grocery store is questionable, but if you're doing something that calls for business or business casual, they're simply out of the question. If jeans aren't allowed, how could you possibly defend one extra thread thicker than panty hose?

Happy thanksgiving

Her: Ms. Ladyvalkyrie, I'm your doctor and we need to go over these blood work results.
Me: Is this the start of a lesbian porno?
Her: No.
Me: Sorry, but could you go get a real doctor please?

Dude, I'm trying my hardest.
However, I'm finding the force of my will alone is just not cutting the mustard.
I hadn't realised how much of a difference that 3/4" - 1" of hair atop my dome really made.
I also suspect my hair grows quicker in the summer, perhaps in preparation for the winter.

I'm really pleased someone else remembers jeggings.
Angelos Epithimiou from Shooting Starts springs to my mind on that front.
(How cryptic is that last sentence?)

Just to clarify, I give all of our volunteers lots of thanks and support, and encourage all of our staff to do so as well. Even though they are volunteers, they are still held to a standard and expected to follow the hospital policies and meet performance expectations. I'm never rude to them about it--I don't talk down to them in a demeaning or shaming way, but I do make it clear that yoga pants are not considered professional dress, especially when they are not appropriately covered. (And I talk to them "in private" about it so they don't feel humiliated or embarrassed.) I've done this job for a long time, and I've found that being direct is the most effective way to get the message across. They all get the same dress code policy in their orientation, but there is this weird blind spot with Yoga pants. *Sigh*.

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.


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?


At my gym some very hot girls, including trainers that work there will routinely do machine facing hack squats while wearing these, I am still amazed at this behavior but indeed enjoy it, leaves absolutely NOTHING to the imagination.
