It's a miasma of humanity at the airport. The veteran traveler with a tidy carry-on, buckwheat neck pillow, and appropriately small toiletries. Strictly-business-travelers with all manner of electronic ephemera and a determined, get-there-on-time-dammit attitude. Families with bursting-to-full bags of all shapes and sizes with children risking life and limb on the people movers. It's a good show.
What's not good is the clothing choices by my fellow travelers. (I've ranted about this before!) It is absolutely possible to be comfortable and presentable. On my flight home there were no less than ten female travelers wearing leggings. Leggings as pants.
Technically, leggings could be considered pants because they occupy space on the lower half of the body. Here's why they aren't pants: they're footless tights. Neither the fabric nor the construction of leggings flatter the pelvic area. It may look like your leggings are thick enough to conceal your cute printed panties (and your anatomy) ... but bend over and that fabric stretches to show everything.
|Leggings are not pants, even on the most toned backside.|
