Hating on leggings

Have you ever worn jeans that never seemed to fit quite right? Have you ever worn pants that would wear out only in the area where your thighs meet? Was your junior high nickname “ghetto booty.” I, just like many women, have big thighs and huge glutes. Yeah, I have a big butt and I always have. I have always struggled with pants, especially jeans. Nothing makes me feel worse than trying on a pair of jeans that are so loose on my calves and waist, but so tight on my thighs and bum. Belts help, but leave this ugly hip dent. So junior high wasn't fun for me, ok? When I was in high school, leggings became a huge thing. Leggings work for me. They fit my waist, my bum, my thighs and my calves. I'm not kidding—leggings changed my life and boosted my self confidence. I no longer felt like I was shoving my curvy body in a tiny mould that wasn't built for me. I don't own jeans or pants. I only own leggings. To me, these are pants. So when people tell girls that "leggings aren't pants" or that "you have to wear long shirts with leggings," you're destroying the self confidence of girls like me who don't fit into anything else. Why does everyone feel the need to tell girls what to wear and what not to wear? You're shaming me for my clothing choices. I don't even want to get started about the people who dictate who can and can not wear leggings. As if your weight should determine what you wear. In this day and age, women should feel free to wear whatever they feel comfortable in and not receive backlash for their personal aesthetic choices. Talk about how more young people should be volunteering or something or go out and volunteer instead of telling girls what to wear. —Ghetto Booty Forever
