I've noticed today for some reason that heaps of bigger people wear leggings. Like how can they wear leggings and not even look that bad but I can't even look at myself in leggings because I look disgusting. I wear skinny jeans but there's no way I'd ever wear leggings, especially in public. What are your opinions on leggings? Like I want to wear them because they look great on some people but I literally just can't bring myself to.

Leggings are pretty much all I wear. I can't stand pants.

When you say "fat" do you mean overweight/obese?  Because I see that all the time.   I'm close to 100 pounds and still don't have the confidence to wear leggings in public.

They're pretty much all I wear as well. I feel thinner in them compared to jeans by a mile

People can wear whatever the hell they want, regardless of their body size. If they have the confidence to do so, don't cut them down just because you wouldn't do it yourself?

I never shamed anyone for wearing them. I said I noticed a lot of bigger people wear them that clearly have the confidence to and I was asking if people here had the confidence to do it. I didn't even specify what body type they had, I just said bigger. Don't put words in my mouth. If anything I was praising them.

I wear leggingsunder my ripped skinny jeans I don't like them cuz they're just ugh #no. I'm kinda mean when I see like these "healthy" people wearing them and can only imagine what they'd think about me if I wore themkarma would eat me alive. I'm getting pretty on board with those jeggings thoughthey have really cool styles

I do, but only if what I'm wearing covers my ass and a little of my thighs. Like, no crop tops here.

I'm uncomfortable in leggings. I think it's because they're so tight. I usually just wear skinny jeans c:

Leggings show off all my "trouble spots" so I don't wear them much.  I wear skinny jeans a lot but usually soft fabric shorts because they make me look thinner.  I wear leggings when I'm out of options and my self confidence goes down down down.

With shorts on over them, sure. But leggings and skinny jeans just make me want to curl up in a ball and have nobody at all look at me.

Sticks and stones may break my bones but words could make me starve myself to death.

I used to thing leggings were a fashion crime, and still do for big people, but for me now that I'm all bony and stuff, jeans don't feel comfortable on my body so I wear leggings. But I only wear long things over them, I don't have my ass showing.
