There’s nothing we love more than a good pair of comfy leggings, but there’s nothing worse than seeing them worn all wrong. You don’t want to fall victim to these awful legging mistakes.
Here’s what you need to know before stepping outside in leggings.
We Don’t Want to See Your Underwear
Seeing someone’s panty lines through leggings is not a good look. When you don’t wear the right underwear with your leggings, you’re constricting your assets. Instead, opt for a thong or pair of seamless underwear intended for leggings or yoga pants.
See Through Leggings Aren’t Sexy
We can’t vouch that no one wants to see through your leggings, but damn it man, we don’t want to see through your leggings! Are those things even keeping you warm? A pair of leggings that are too thin have a good chance of catching on something and ripping, or they could even split when you’re trying to dip it and do it. Listen, we are all about our Wendy Watchers living their best life, but we have to give the unintentional sheer leggings a thumbs down.
Camel Toe Was Never Trending
Phaedra Parks might disagree here, but camel toe was never trending. This is yet another instance of how leggings can sometimes share a little too much to the general public. We are all about woman empowerment, but some things should be seen behind closed doors.
Baggy Crotch? No Ma’am!
While we’re on the subject of the crotch, we might as well bring up the baggy crotch. Leggings aren’t meant to be baggy. If they were, then they wouldn’t be leggings. As a matter of fact, if your leggings are baggy, you probably have the wrong size.
Some Prints and Cuts Outs Just Won’t Work
If you want to get a wacky print or crazy cut out on your leggings, by all means do it. We encourage Wendy Watchers to express themselves through what they wear. It’s one of the reasons we have the best studio audience in television. Do yourself a solid and make sure what you’re getting shows you in the best light. Don’t blindly get something because it looks good on the hanger. Try it on, do a little dance, and see how you feel.
When You Look Like You Rolled Out of Bed… No
People are actually embracing the whole pajama look these days. Just last week, Wendy was stuntin’ in a PJ look from her HSN collection! She made it look good, but looking like you literally rolled out of bed is not a cute look. Remember when Wendy was running late to work and she didn’t have time to get changed into her work clothes? In true Wendy fashion, she was wearing her go-to leggings and was ready for the day, even though she didn’t have time to change before the show.
