So you never laugh to yourself or think somebody looks bad in a trashy outfit, or point out some awful look to your S/O? Come on, Saint Sunday!

You have low standards for sainthood if you think not talking trash about other people is saintly. What other people choose to wear does not affect my life. As long as they are dressed somewhat appropriately for the occasion, I see no reason to comment. And to me wearing yoga pants to the grocery store is completely acceptable.

As a woman who used to get them regularly due to hypoglycemia and birth control pills, it had nothing to do with hygiene and everything to do with certain fabrics especially if you sweat and not change out of your gym clothes or a wet bathing suit as soon as possible. Lycra is one of the worst offenders for a woman who is prone to yeast infections (diabetics) as it keeps moisture too close to the skin. Anything that can alter your normal pH can cause this in many women as can taking antibiotics.


But I'm getting off topic.

I think they look great on women. As an active male (runner/cyclist) I wear them too but will wear a longer top or put on gym shorts to provide modesty when needed if going in public

jogging pants/sweat pants look sloppier.

When I was at the grocery store this week, I made sure to note the women I saw in workout clothes. I saw a couple in spandex, and one in black sweats. None looked like super models, but none looked bad. I didn't see the outline of any genitals. I was wearing carpenter type jeans, and felt no more dressed up or more appropriately dressed than they were.

I had a coworker like this guy described. Not the cutest thing in the world and many said he was uneasy on the eyes, but a amazing body and she worse spandex pants everywhere and had a constant stream of guys approaching her. Granted she was a **** because many of those guys became successful in their goal, she still knew what she was doing.

Spandex may be comfortable, but if you have a really nice figure and decide your shirt will not cover it, just be prepared to get many stares and probably comments from men. Its no different than a man wearing spandex or biker shorts with a big bulge showing and women staring at it or making comments.
Yeah, I DO know.

Reminder: It's a FASHION subforum.

Huh??

B) Men and women who either like or dislike yoga pants because of how sexualized they are in their opinion

It seems like it's just a matter of whether one sees tight, thin, form-fitting clothing from the hips down as being sexual or not.

A poster earlier pointed out that many of her jeans were as much or more form-fitting than her yoga pants, and that's a fair point. The only difference here seems to be the thin and occasionally sheer nature of some leggings/yoga pants, which I think some women (and men) are uncomfortable with, whereas tight jeans seem to be pretty universally accepted as OK.
This.
