Is It Ok To Wear Leggings as Pants?

Okay. We've all seen women wear leggings as pants. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I'm good with any length shirt with leggings, from crop top to knee length tunic - for everyone else. If you like the way it looks and feels, do it.

At the same time, I’m going to be honest with you right from the start: I am in the “leggings are not pants” camp. I do not ever wear leggings without having my, ahem, “personal assets” covered. I don’t even wear fitted pants without the proper coverage! Blame my conservative upbringing.

But having said that…paired with a tunic, I wear leggings almost every day as pants. And no, I don’t think I’m being hypocritical. When I put on a Mountain Mamas tunic with a pair of our leggings and put on a pair of boots, I know I am rocking this look.

One big reason I love wearing leggings is that by nature, they conform to my body. If your weight tends to fluctuate quite a bit the way mine does, wearing stretchy clothes saves both energy and money. Going denim shopping is infuriating, and I don't always feel comfortable wearing skirts or dresses, so a simple pair leggings is the perfect solution.

Since leggings are part of my daily wear, several different legging designs are needed. Now I’m not talking about pieces of pizza floating on a background – I don’t want to attract that kind of attention. But solid colors, tone on tone geometric designs, abstract patterns, a sophisticated floral or damask design? I am all over it…. give me choices so that getting dressed every day becomes a creative, fun and fast task. Because let’s face it, putting on a pair of leggings and a tunic takes about 3 minutes.

Now there are all kinds of leggings out there, but we have worked hard on our legging fabric and feel we have the most comfortable leggings around – they really are “soft as a cloud”. I can put on a pair of our leggings in the morning and they will stay looking and feeling good until I crawl into bed at night. No pinching at the waist line...not bunching at the knees, no constrictive fabric that holds you in like sausage casing. I am not kidding. Our leggings are super comfortable and will make you feel great, all day long!

We hope you will order a pair and feel the difference for yourself!

All our best,
