I’m the dreaded “Apple” shape…so leggings don’t really stay on me…they just roll right off. I have nice legs and a nice butt so when I find a pair that actually stays where I put them, then I love them! I like to wear them with a flannel. I can’t wear them to work because I would just tear them, but just doing errands and stuff, they are definitely a go to!

I am a big fan, although if I’m wearing them in public I always put on a long sweater or shirt so my butt is covered, otherwise I feel self conscious.

no, dont love em. They’re too hot for serious excercising where I am (I need shorts), too tight for lazing around in, and too awkward for wearing out as pants.

I loooove them. But I also wear thicker, opaque workout tights so that I worry less about my butt. The black ones, I’ll pair with tall boots and a short dress in the fall. 

I’m also that person who’s basically always in workout clothes in public.

I love leggings for comfort but not for style so I only wear them at home. 

I hate when they go baggy at the knees though!

I love them.  If it’s cold enough for pants; I’m typically in leggings and a tunic.  So comfy and stylish enough for me, add jewelry and the right shoes and it’s my kinda outfit lol.

Not a fan personally. I don’t get the draw. I have some for lounging around the house in some silly patterns but I wouldn’t wear them out.

They actually had to send out a company-wide email at my work reminding people they were not part of the dress code, along with other athleisure type clothing…

Leggings are life. I used to be one of those people that said leggings aren’t pants but then I got pregnant and had a baby and I’ve totally changed my tune. I wear long shirts that cover my bum or a long cardigan. It’s just so easy to move around in and to put on in the morning. I still wear jeans and dresses though so it’s not an all the time thing.

Love them – however for non-exercise realted wear I believe the cameltoe should always be covered by a long top! And I try to make sure I wear tailored trousers/jeans often enough that I don’t fall into the Lycra trap, where the leggings grow with you and you don’t realise that you’re expanding until it’s too late.


The “sports luxe” trend is the best ever IMO tongue-out

I’m an apple and have never been able to find leggings that don’t cut into my stomach uncomfortably. The closest I’ve come is lularoe, but I don’t like refreshing facebook every week, all night, trying to find effing black leggings. If anyone has good suggestions for leggings without the typical, painfully tight, elastic band I’m all ears! I love them in the fall to wear with oversized sweaters and flannel.

Thank you! Everyone always says their bum should be covered, no, the camel toe is way worse!

I work from home so I wear them pretty much all day every day. Best thing ever.

I love leggings! I have long jumpers and tops that go great with leggings and wouldnt go with jeans. They are great when ive gained a little weight or when my bloating gets really bad too. I pretty much only pack leggings for travel now as they take up so little space compared to jeans and go with everything.
