Surely the most dignity sapping, unflattering thing a woman can wear, apart from a tattoo...

    if its the only thing she's wearing then i cant see a problem. In fact the issue of ladies wear is a hot topic right here
    The dissenter is every human being at those moments of his life when he resigns
    momentarily from the herd and thinks for himself.

    If the legs in question are thin and shapley, leggings make the wearer resemble a two-pin plug, if the legs resemble those hunks of rotating meat donnor kebabs are carved from the effect is grotesque. And yes dear, your bum does look big in that...

    Leggings are great.

    If you do find yourself admiring somebody of the female persuasion, leggings offer a suggestion of whats on offer (although it probably isn't actually on offer) without her just putting it all out there!

    Anyhow, who are we to judge?

    On second thoughts, who are cyclists to judge people wearing skin tight clothing!!

    That's the trouble, it is all out there, often it shouldn't be.

    A nice Tattoo on a woman is superb. A sh1te 'fashion' tattoo you are right, is awful.

    I don't mind leggings, but the problem is you get land whales wearing them most the time, thinking their fit.

    There is woman on a bike on my old commute who could really do justice to a set of leggings, esp the 3/4 length style. I'm not saying I timed my commute to coincide with the same set of traffic lights , it was just a lucky coincidence on many days.

    It depends on who's wearing them, much like tight jeans for example. If being worn by a grunter then yes. I assume you're referring to them a streetwear rather than the gym? Shouldn't be too many wearing thin leggings round your way very soon anyway, not with winter closing in on you :lol:

    Leggings are the Devils clothes, the only good thing about them is the fact that you just "have" to go commando.

    Some famous designer (?Paul Smith) said that 99% of women should never wear leggings, the others should wear them 99% of the time!

    Unfortunately my neighbour seems to live in the damn things despite it being obvious she enjoys her pies and is...shall we say...mature. Everytime I see her my genitals actually shrivel and retreat back inside my body.

    Women dress themselves for their own benefit, hence I don't see why any woman should care what you do or don't think about her choice of clothing. Or why you care what those women choose to wear.

    No we don't. I don't give a toss about what anyone says, there is always an element of dressing to please. Whether it be your partner or a one night stand that has to be done.

    They have a distant link to the leggings family, which was good enough to persuade me to include them. I agree with comment no. 4.

    Technically, yes. But I certainly think she pulls it off. *corrrrrr*

    I could quite easily say something in appropriate about pulling it off here - but i wont. :lol:

    For every 1 girl that suits tight leggings there are 5 that shouldn't venture out of track bottoms/jeans/the house.

    Then again this is a cycling forum and I'm sure that not all are built like pro racers :D
