I wanted to know if there are any other men out there who enjoy wearing leggings? For the record, I am not gay and I am not a crossdresser, but I do wear leggings, only around the house though and to my yoga classes. Also and for the record, I am married and my wife is totally cool with it. I just feel comfortable in leggings. I can't completely explain it, but I wish more men would openly wear them. Put it this way, I don't experience any bad stares in yoga class and I have a slim / athletic body.

Any other men here dare to admit they do the same? It really shouldn't be anything to be ashamed of!

It's OK as long as you shave your legs. When the leggings rub against leg hair, it can get a little uncomfortable.

What type of leggings are you talking about? Are they like spandex pants?

I can't say I've ever done this, or had any desire to. I'd much rather wear shorts.

I have never been one for shorts. I wear the cotton spandex but plain type leggings (black). They are very comfortable, great for yoga too. I can't see why such clothing is taboo for men. As for hairy legs, I'll spare you the details but I don't really have that hairy legs lol.

Okay... I get that YOU like them, and that's fine.
But, why are you wishing more men would openly wear them? Especially since you don't even do that...

It'll be like the Speedos thread....
the only ones wearing them will be the precise ones who shouldn't.

I don't see anything wrong with wearing leggings for what ever reason, I do agree that the person that we would mostly see is a person that shouldn't be wearing them...

I don't wear leggings I don't really have a purpose to. If I was into yoga or going to the gym to work out much as what you do I would. Now I do wearing pantyhose. I have vericose veins, I deal with restless legs, and in the past have battled fatigue in my legs. Wearing pantyhose helps me to relieve these issues. There are alot of men that wear support pantyhose by doctors directions.

Openly!? I do wear them openly. With shorts, jeans, slacks. Profile photo was take at Tampa International Airport. Do I care what other people think?! No, I live my live how I want to, I dress appropriately.

I'm happly Married, no children, and my wife is very supportive. I'm not a crossdresser either. We must be confident in who we are to no let the world rule our lives. Don't worry about other people, just be happy!

I confess I have never seen a man in leggings that wasn't wearing spandex ones for competitive running/biking races, or else part of a Shakespearean acting troupe at a renaissance festival.

Me either, Tabula. I wouldn't look twice at an handsome guy in leggings. I guess it's like wearing my exh's shirt to clean the house.

Mantyhose?

I've worn leggings/nylons before. Keeps friction down so I don't get blisters on my feet after 10-12 hours+ of wearing combat boots. I just wore flesh-colored ones over my socks, and made sure that my socks were tight against my feet.

I would not, however, wear them for pleasure or any other reason.
