Christian blogger, Veronica Partridge is taking a stand against leggings. While she says that she is not trying to start a movement, she simply is doing what she thinks is the respectful thing to do for her. She blogs frequently about her family, her Christian values, and her life in Central Oregon.
She has had a conviction weighing on her mind for a long while. She believes that leggings, yoga pants, or any type of form fitting-pants create a stronger attraction and cause men to look at a woman’s body more objectifying. Partridge, a happily married woman, went to her husband for some advice.
Her husband then admitted that when a woman wears yoga pants, it his harder to not look at their bodies.
This was enough to make Veronica Partridge come to the decision to stop wearing leggings.
She then took to her blog to share her thoughts and the reason behind the decision.
“DISCLAIMER: Let me just start off by saying, I am in NO WAY trying to tell people what they can and cannot wear. What you wear is entirely your own choice. I am just sharing my personal story on why I chose to no longer wear yoga pants or leggings in public.”
“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?”
