by Lori Alexander of The Transformed Wife – Yoga Pants – A New Kind of Modern Vanity
Editor’s note: Lori’s favorite hobby horse – Yoga pants. A couple of things, while the author of the original article makes a few good points that sometimes people do dress too informally Lori makes it a giant leap to the sin of vanity. The author is not even going near the idea of the pants being some how indecently revealing and defrauding. Secondly, is dressing for comfort really a bad thing? Read the original article in the Washington Post (not the Washington Times as Lori claims). Notice that Lori also says that one of the problems with yoga pants is that they are ‘classless’, not as in saying they are somehow tacky, but in a fashion that does not denote what social class the wearer belongs to.
Women wear yoga pants these days and they wear them every day and every where. I’m not sure about you but I wouldn’t dare wear them out in public like many women do today. My main reason for not wearing them is how immodest they are because they show every single curve of a woman’s front and back side; some are worse than others. Yes, honest men will tell you that they are immodest as well. Kerry Folan has another reason why women shouldn’t be wearing yoga pants all the time. She wrote an article in the Washington Times called Yoga pants are comfy. They’re also an assault on manners and a nihilistic threat.
Yes, I had to look up what nihilistic means since it’s not a word I use. The definition: “rejecting all religious and moral principles in the belief that life is meaningless.” Wow! I thought I was hard on yoga pants! She in essence wrote that women wear yoga pants because they’re too lazy to get dressed and look put together. They care more about their comfort than anything or anyone else. I agree with her. Yoga pants aren’t something that women should be wearing outside of their home or exercise class. They are classless.
