Leggings

claudine19claudine19 Posts: 4,486Registered Users
I have to go to a thing next week, and I've decided to wear leggings and boots. I have hip-length t-shirts to wear with them, but what if the shirts ride up? What does one do about underwear when wearing leggings? I can't wear those string-in-the-rear, passes for underpants things. (Can't remember what they're called.)

TIA:?:

    Do you have a longer tunic?

    I wear leggings and boots every weekend, with no underwear and a longish top to hide any camel toe!

    No long tunics; I'm not tall enough to carry it off, I feel. The t-shirts are hip-length, though. Is that long enough not to be tacky?

    I read on Beautylish that some women wear tights. The leggings I bought are fleece-lined, though, so I'll miss that soft fleece against my legs if I go that route. Still, better safe than sorry. And I will have a nearly knee length coat over everything.

    (The overhead light went out in the room where I keep my full length mirror. It's a vintage light fixture, and really hard to change the bulb. I think I'll have to stand on a stepstool in the bathroom to use another mirror to ensure there's no camel toe. Gawd --- this is why I almost always wear jeans in the winter.)

    I wear thongs everyday, with and without leggings. There are super thin, elastic-free, modal ones at Target that are super comfy and easy to wear.

    If the leggings are black and free of holes, you shouldn't be too concerned about too much showing (tho the longer the top, the better).

    I will wear assets from target. I get no lines and much smoother look. They are like spanx but cheaper.

    I know you said you'll have a nearly knee length coat over the whole thing. You won't be taking that off will you? I'll just leave this here. :hippy2:

    At the very least, leggings should be worn with something that covers the bottom of your ass. "Hip length" isn't ass covering.

    Good idea, murrcat. Thank you.
    I'll risk a little bit of ass showing. Not too much.
    No, they're not pants, but they're thick, so they'll have to do. I'd like to feel like dressing up, but I just don't, lately. I used to care more about this kind of thing. I just don't anymore. I'd rather not offend people, but this is kind of the best I can do just now.

    Where's Wolfie? In the Tumblr?

    Jeans might be dressier than leggings and a short top.

    It's (the top) hip length. And yes, I will have the coat on, most likely the whole time (knowing me and my perpetual chilliness).

    Re: Tumblr, I got confused. My fault.

    I think I'm confused by hip length.

    Is this hip length as in the front hip bones just below the navel, or the greater trochanter at the side of the thigh?

    In between, although my hip bones are much lower than my navel.
    Thanks for the feedback, everyone. :)

    I've seen see-through leggings, but there definitely leggings that are thick enough to be worn as pants. also, I'm of the opinion that you should wear whatever you like!!

    I used to be on the leggings-are-not-pants side of things, but then I saw the light (aka found comfy, not see-through leggings)!

    Whether leggings are see through are not, they hug/accentuate body parts that leave nothing to the imagination. Hence the need to wear with a tunic.

    texture - medium/fine, porosity - low/normal, elasticity - normal
    co-wash - NaturelleGrow Coconut Water or Marshmallow Root, Slippery Elm Bark & Blue Malva Cleansing Conditioners
    LI - KCKT mixed w/ SM C & H Curl & Style Milk
    DC - NG Mango & Coconut H2O or Chamomile/Brdck Root
    Gel - SM souffle (winter), KCCC (summer) or CR Naturals Aloe Whipped Butter Gel (year round)
    Sealers - Virgin Coconut Oil, Avocado butter, Aloe butter
    Ayurvedic treatments - Jamila Henna, Sukesh, Aloe Vera Powder, Hibiscus Powder

    Maybe this would be a good time to announce that I still wear Uggs, too, so we can switch to another debate?

    Yeah, I see a lot of camel toe at work, even with thick ones.

    I've never seen anyone have camel toe in leggings.:dontknow:

    But what I have seen..I cannot unsee.. this chick in my class wore white leggings (more like panty hose) to work out, YOU COULD SEE EVERYTHING. SHE MIGHT AS WELL HAD BEEN IN THE NUDE.

    just make sure you bum is covered. I'm short and I wear tunics/long sweaters
  • SystemSystem Posts: 39,059 Administrator
    You could wear these. Your butt would be covered and you'd stay warm.

    I'm not sure what is so bad about leggings showing the outline of some of our body parts - so? It's your body, it's there, who cares? It's not indecent exposure so as long as you're comfortable, no problem!

    I agree leggings are VERY casual though. I think jeans can be dressed up more than leggings can, so if it's a jeans vs. leggings with boots situation, I'd do nice jeans with boots, some kind of blouse or top and a little jacket or blazer and some nice jewelry. Still very casual, but more pulled-together and appropriate.

    Or you could wear the leggings with a simple t-shirt / sweater style dress and jewelry and be super-comfortable!

    I'm not sure what that means. Everyone knows they're not pants. They are more comfortable and casual than pants, for one thing.
