Leggings aren’t always a girl’s best bitch. Sometime’s those go-to bodyhuggers are just sneaky little foes ready to cackle at your thighs’ demise. Now don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing better than having twelve minutes to get Bey’d up, raping your closet for an outfit, spotting a pair of ebony tighties and breathing a heavy sigh of relief.
Simply said leggings make life easier. But they can also make life real bad, michael jackson. In particular, that lust life of yours. Don’t you dare side-eye me son! I know and you know that men say they usually luhhhhhhve leggings, HOWEVER, there are some exceptions only Media Takeout’s Fred Mwangaguhunga would love. But let’s just get to the specifics shall we? I asked for damn good dudes to break down leggings fails. Don’t shoot the messenger.
“Wearing leggings with granny panties is a done deal. Also, no shots but there is a weight limit on wearing leggings especially if the ass region isn’t covered up by a shit or something… certain people just shouldn’t wear them at all.”—Richard (@413Forever), 26
“Leggings should never have holes in them whatsoever… and when women sleep in them and then wake up and go about their day in the same ones… don’t do that.”—Keenan (@Higzillmatic), 21
“For the record I LOVE leggings, but ugly thongs, granny panties, camel toe, cellulite butt— all epic fails of leggings… cellulite butt is the worst. Oh and not crazy about those American Apparel joints that go all the way up your waist…like them in pictures, but not sure about real life. They look hard to take off and I really don’t appreciate that.”—Shaan (@shaanjcoelho), 24
“Saw a girl last night in some shimmery leggings and she looked like the New Year’s Eve ball #Fail. But seriously, a big legging fail is when a woman gets those super cheap and super thin ones that show her colorful panties. Might look good in the crib but when that camera flash hit it it’s a wrap. Oh and flat asses are not meant for display in spandex lol, why highlight your low point?” —Anslem (@NakedWithSocksOn), 35
“If the shits look like they were from the ones worn by the Wicked Witch of the East… that might not be the bizness. Also, any leggings with rhinestones and sequins are on a timeout forever… not trying to deal with a tween here.”—Kozza (@kozza), 27
And now a special word from our favorite fly guy @RaeHoliday from StuffFlyPeopleLike.com…
“Leggings can be pretty amazing. They can be a second layer of skin, which works wonders for a curvy woman with an amazing shape! But for the out of shape fashionista (who always breaks the rules), this can be detrimental, especially if they are worn as pants. You see, there is one trait about leggings that can’t easily be erased, they make a woman look cheap. After all, leggings were meant to be a layer of clothing, not the sole component. When worn as pants, they make one look like she’s toO lazy to get dressed. It’s really all about the top, the top determines which category you’ll put yourself in, class or ass (ASS ASSS ASS ASS ASSS *Deep Baritone Voice*). When paired with a sweater, shirt or any top that comes below the buttocks she can dress them up with a great heel. But as is to often the case, they are paired with a mid-drift tee, a pony tail and kitten heels, as we await 50 Cent & his crew to hit the set, because the video girls are READY *Beyonce Voice*!” —Rae, 32
So there you have it! I don’t make this ish up gals, I just cosign it. So what’s the lesson learned here? Repeat it with me: All leggings are not created equally. Whether you want to look your best for yourself, your man, your F-Buddy or your momma, focus on that fitting. Holes can lead to gashes, saggy frontsides and backsides are annoying to pull up, camel toes are annoying to pull down… just get into your comfort zone and stay true to your mirror. That combo will never fail ya.
