Yoga pants and spandex legging too tight for schoolThursday, May 03, 2012 By Callie Walters
Here at the Park, a variety of clothing is worn throughout each season. However, the clothing that some girls wear just irks me. The two that bother me the most are yoga pants and spandex leggings. I don’t mind when girls wear spandex leggings under dresses or skirts. It only starts to bug me when girls wear the leggings as pants with a normal length shirt. Nothing is covering your butts! When you wear spandex leggings with just a normal length shirt, guys are going to stare. Think about how many people go the Park- more than 6,000 students. Have some respect for your body. Yoga pants also get to me. I’ll admit that I’ve worn them to school, they’re very comfortable and I understand that. But yoga pants hug every part of your body. Honestly, I think they hug your body tighter than spandex leggings. Once again, you are just giving guys a reason to stare at your butt. Back in January there was a rumor that the administration was going to ban yoga pants along with other articles of clothing. No one really knows why that rumor was started, but it was just a rumor. However, I wouldn’t mind if they banned yoga pants. If girls can’t respect their own bodies, the administration should help with that. I really do understand how comfortable yoga pants are, although I don’t quite understand the whole waist length shirt and spandex leggings, but ladies, let’s respect our bodies. There are so many more stylish things to wear. Swap out a pair yoga pants for jeans or sweat pants. That shirt is going to look wonderful with a pair of jeans, not with leggings.
