I'm not a woman but I find it surprising that yoga pants are more comfortable than jogging pants/track pants (it just seems uncomfortable to be walking around with a wedgie all day) ?

Yoga pants and leggings do not give you a permanent wedgie.

Seriously. Spandex bike shorts were worn when I was a middle schooler 1988-1991.

I'm guessing that since you are not a woman that you have not actually worn yoga pants. How then can you comment on how uncomfortable they are? I have a few different brands/styles of yoga pants that I wear to the gym or any other time I'm doing something active. None of them give me a wedgie. If they did, that would mean I'm wearing the wrong size. I don't buy clothes that don't fit me properly.

Because I don't want to wear jogging pants. That is all the reason you need.

The only person I care about when it comes to judging my clothes is my husband.

I go to the gym in the morning, run errands, come home cook and clean, exercise the dogs; and then after my husband gets home we may go paddle board or ride bikes or something.

I asked him if he felt it was complacent that I was in gym clothes (albeit cute ones ) everyday and he is fine with that.

Actually you can if you.... you just need to choose the correct type. There are all sorts of pants made from that material. It all depends on the fabric. Check out this brand call Hue. Same type of fabric and comfort ... but they dont look like pants for the gym. Fab fit... I could work out in them if I wanted to as well.

Where I live, most people are active, so really its kinda less likely to see a woman in something other than leggings than one wearing them. Only exception is if they are going to the office (work clothes) or if they are older and not active.
There is not one sentence in my OP in which I am disparaging other people's choices. I shared my experience of what I see here in Colorado versus the fact I didn't see it when I traveled to the Midwest. Hence my question, is this a trend elsewhere.....after all, this is the F&B forum.

Maybe if more long tops were available, people would wear them and we would be spared views like those in those awful photos. Although if those folks knew how they looked from the rear, and sometimes from the front, I suspect they wouldn't walk out the front door.
I find lots of long tops on Amazon. I have this one in three colors that I pair with leggings and either a long necklace or a scarf. I'm 5'4" and it comes down about 5" past my fingertips, so everything is definitely covered.

OMG! Too flippin' funny. I wonder how many of these were taken at a Wal-Mart because some of the people in there must not own a full length mirror or they just don't care what they look like. Besides the fact that yoga/spandex doesn't look good on many people they also make your vagina a host for yeast infections. Just because they make them in a size 4X doesn't mean they should be worn outside of the house.


As I walked out of my gym today in my work-out clothes it hit me why some women wear these all the time. Maybe they are saying "hey, look at me, I go to the gym, I work out, I'm not a couch potato". What do you guys think?
