Let’s Stop Hating On This Woman For Finding Leggings “Lustful”

The go-to legging “controversy” has always been the “pants or not” debate, but these days, the focus seems to have shifted to the question of whether they’re some kind of symbol of sexual deviance. The most recent weigh-in comes from a woman named Veronica Partridge, who shared a post on her personal blog earlier this month about her decision not to wear them anymore to prevent the “lustful thoughts” of random dudes. She told People, “It had been something that was on my mind for quite some time. I didn’t want to possibly cause another man, especially a married man, to look at me in a way I believe he should only look at his wife.”

Christian Blogger Vows To Give Up Yoga Pants To “Honor God And Husband”

This woman is taking fashion sins a little more seriously than most.

Christian blogger Veronica Partridge has been getting a lot of attention for a blog post earlier this month in which she vows to no longer wear leggings in public because of her religious beliefs. The decision — which she writes weighed “heavy on her heart” for several months — was done to inspire fewer “lustful” thoughts in men. Read more on Huffington Post Weird News…

These Yoga Pants Are Specially Designed For Going Commando

Yoga pants just got even comfier — now you can buy a pair with built-in underwear. Julie Sygiel of the Dear Kate lingerie line got so sick of worrying about panty lines, chafing and period mishaps that she created a line of yoga pants that allow women the ”freedom to go commando.” When one of Sygiel’s friends suggested she try exercising without underwear, she loved how much more, well, uninhibited she felt. Unfortunately, she realized pretty quickly it wasn’t gonna fly with her super thin leggings in yoga class, which is when she set out to create her own.

The pants have a built-in panty liner made from a breathable fabric called “Underlux” that takes the place of regular underwear. They also have magic seams inside that somehow prevent any accidental reveals, and are made in the USA. Keep reading »

Leggings, Yoga Pants Banned From Middle School Because They Are "Too Distracting For Boys"
  • Haven Middle School in Evanston, Illinois, has banned female students from wearing leggings, shorts and yoga pants, allegedly because the clothes are “too distracting for boys.” Sigh, and body policing and the “Are Leggings Pants?” debate continues. Some grown men can’t handle yoga pants, either. Maybe President Obama should issue an executive order banning them entirely? [Evanston.Patch.com]
  • The founders of a “revenge porn” site, where sexually explicit images of women are posted without their consent (usually sent in by their exes), have been ordered to pay $385,000 for posting photos of a woman taken when she was a minor. [Ars Tehnica] Keep reading »

I never thought I’d have to defend my choice to wear yoga pants. Or to wear expensive yoga pants. Or to wear thong underwear beneath my expensive yoga pants. But the day has arrived. I will and I shall.

With all this hullabaloo about Lululemon recalling a bunch of their yoga pants because they were too sheer, everyone suddenly seems to have an opinion about how women should or shouldn’t cover their asses while doing Downward Dog.

Charlotte Cowles, a regular yogi, weighed in on the Lululemon recall in New York Magazine, attributing the problem to thongs rather than pants:

“The problem with sheer yoga pants isn’t so much that your butt cheeks are visible, but that your thong is. Still, I don’t see why this is a terrible concern, since lots of ladies’ thongs stick out during yoga anyway.”

Oh noes! Bad news out of Yoga Pants Land! Lululemon, purveyors of unnecessarily expensive workout gear, has supposedly had to chuck an entire batch of their yoga pants, known mostly for giving men uncontrollable boners, because a manufacturing glitch made them too thin. As if the super tight fabric wasn’t skankasaurus enough, this particular batch of yoga pants were see-through. Lululemon began pulling the pants from shelves this weekend, releasing the following press release about the disaster:

“We have determined that certain shipments of product received from our factories and available in store from March 1, 2013 do not meet our technical specifications. The items affected are certain styles of women’s bottoms in our signature black Luon fabric. The ingredients, weight and longevity qualities of the pants remain the same but the coverage does not, resulting in a level of sheerness in some of our women’s black Luon bottoms that falls short of our very high standards.
