But they were so comfortable! 70 year old women would look awful with the skin tight stretch capris and the bra-type exercise outfits I see on younger people at the gym.

No, they don't. They are very appropriate attire for walking/hiking/running. No matter what age the wearer is.

Buy a larger size and wear a long top (which most of them are anyway). Non-issue.

If a 65 year-old woman had been race-walking regularly, chances are good she would have legs that are pleasing for people to see in leggings.

Itís the skirt part that prevents the legging look from being obnoxious on some women. A very modest and appropriate look for an active senior, actually. Can you imagine leggings alone over Depends undergarments? Keep it classy

Not many women or girls can carry it off. Much like tight jeans. I have seen 18 year old girls who can't carry it off. Depends on body shape.

Some 65 year olds, can look good in leggings.......some thirty year olds......not so much. If you are working at looking good, then you should wear, what makes you feel good too.

That's a good point - I have a few shirts that I really like but are just a couple of inches shorter than I'd prefer and might work better with a skirted legging.

Off to go shopping....
