Woman Gives Up Yoga Pants For Religious Beliefs
Are yoga pants too enticing? One Christian blogger seems to think so and she has removed them from her wardrobe.
25-year-old Veronica Partridge wrote a blog earlier this month that has been getting her a lot of attention. But it was the attention she was getting for her yoga pants that led to the write up.
After a conversation with her husband about yoga pants, Partridge wrote,
If it is difficult for my husband who loves, honors, and respects me to keep his eyes focused ahead, then how much more difficult could it be for a man that may not have the same self-control? Sure, if a man wants to look, they are going to look, but why entice them? Is it possible that the thin, form-fitting yoga pants or leggings could make a married (or single) man look at a woman in a way he should only look at his wife?"
Not sure I'm on the same page with Partridge. I don't think a woman should have to change what she wears in order to prevent a man from possibly going against his religious beliefs. I think if you are that devout, then it should be on you, not me to keep those beliefs.
On the other hand, many schools (even local schools) have felt for a while that yoga pants are not proper school wear and can be distracting to some students. Skin tight leggings have been banned in middle and high schools across the country.
So how do you feel about the fashion? Are yoga pants too distracting? Should more people starting banning them from their wardrobe?
