Leggings are Not PantsI just thought I'd put this out there as a friendly reminder.

Leggings are (still) not pants.

She wore her leggings as pants. And as a result, I know far more about her derriere than I ever wanted or needed to.

This was nothing on the other woman we saw at the airport, whose dress had gotten hiked up in her backpack and was walking through the terminal completely unaware that her rear end and panties were plainly visible to everyone behind her.
