I wear them as pants because they are comfy and make my ass look good but other people seem to think differently. 😛

  • No they are not pants. They are what you wear for either yoga or certain types of workouts. That or yoga pants can be worn under a skirt. That way you don't have to be paranoid about others seeing your panties. So they can help with that.

    The really tight legging looking yoga pants. I consider them more like tights. Just most of the time they aren't as see through.

    Still yoga pants alone. Your going to get unwanted attention depending on how big your ass is or how tight they are. So if your wanting attention and for guys to chase you down over them. Then yes wear them. If you don't want anyone bothering you then don't wear anything tight.

  • They're pants if your shirt covers your butt. If it doesn't, then they're not.

  • It depends on the type of leggings in my opinion. If they are sheer, I don't think they're pants, but more like pantyhose and you should make sure your butt is covered. If they're solid and you cannot see your underwear through them, they are fine as pants.

  • There is a huge difference between types of leggings! The thin cotton ones ARE NOT pants. But then there are the thick spandex ones which are just yoga pants without the flared bottom, The cotton ones are not made to be worn a pants but the thick spandex ones are made exactly like yoga pants and are designed to be worn like yoga pants.

  • Listen, let's just think about it: are skirts, dresses, shorts, and capris "pants"? No, but we wear them. If it covers your ass, your legs, and ankles without being transparent, they qualify.

  • I don't buy my leggings one size too small, so it actually looks acceptable for me to wear them as pants.

  • Yes leggings tights yoga and compression wear are pants some people but not all should wear them as just pants though .. style for the body you have not the body you want.

    Leggings look good with a nice top and or skirt.

  • Some people are confusing tights with leggings and I can see how they do. Buy yes leggings CAN BE worn as pants OR as tights under a skirt etc.

    The versatility and comfort are why they're so popular

  • Well no leggins are not pants, leggins are are leggins. I don't see why girls should not be allowed to just wear them as they wish though.

  • Only if they are opaque and worn with a tunic or long shirt, otherwise, inappropriate in my opinion.

  • No I think it's lazy unless it with a really good outfit and a basic and not very fashionable and I know people say it's for the comfort but let's be real it's mostly for the ass but if the only thing that looks good is ur ass do you even really look good? For me personally I always have to dress nice I can never wear leggings unless staying in it like the picture someone put in the comments.
