Leggings used to be worn for warmth and comfort. During the pandemic, women grabbed a pair of leggings to wear more than ever. They're comfy. They're fairly inexpensive. They've got that elastic waistband (thank you very much). You can dress leggings up or dress them down for a lazy day at home. I'm a big fan of the legging. But I have a rule - the booty and the front MUST be covered by a shirt. Nobody wants to see all that junk, right? I saw a woman at the Braves game last night in a full on bodysuit with leggings. She looked amazing. I'm here to tell you...she's in the very small percentage of women who could pull that look off in public!
Believe it or not, lots of women are having surgery on their privates because there is this new ultra-tight leggings trend. The “designer” surgery – which is called a labiaplasty runs about $4,000. It gets rid of the dreaded “camel toe” when wearing skin-tight leggings.
UK plastic surgeon Dr. John Skevofilax says the number of these procedures he has done this year already has more than doubled from 2021. Dr. Skevofilax says that 80% of the women who choose to have the surgery do it for reasons of discomfort rather than looks.
“Exercise clothing is a little bit tighter and it's form-fitting, so it does put pressure on the area,” he said.
I thought adding a YouTube video would be a good idea. After scrolling through the thumbnails...NO.
Getting surgery on my "NO-NO" square? Absolutely not. I'll just stick with wearing an oversized shirt with my leggings. But hey...I guess it's good to know that the option is on the table if you're interested.
