See-through leggings- classy?

I first saw these in abundance in the UK last year. I was having lunch with my sister's boyfriend in a Surrey country pub, when a waitress in a French type pinny, bent over in them right in front of us. There wasn't much left to imagination. My sister's boyfriend, embarrassed said " I don't think she knows that they are transparent". I said I think she knows- she's after tips.

I am pretty open about most things- if she was wearing a string bikini that would be fine, but I just find these see-through leggings crass ugly, and to have someone's butt in your face when you are eating is pretty off-putting.

Anyone agree?

I thought that they were so 'last year' but here's Kim Kardashian in them

I love them but always with a skirt/dress/long shirt. With Kim Kardashian's body though I'd skip the skirt.

hoppy, you know its a fail thread, when you've put Kim Kardashian and classy together in one sentence.

Re: See-through leggings- classy?

I find them Butt-ugly! G-strings, suspenders, stockings anyday, but these?
They even make girls with great bodies look ugly, they just remind me of half-dressed in people in orthopaedic support stockings.

Here's Kelly Brook in them

@Zymogen - So will a red pair of these be okay with you for the KFC Quest on Saturday instead of red trousers?

Leggings are fabulous - you can dress like a lady and sit like a man.

The see through ones are not attractive.Maybe with a longer top or some suitable underwear. I saw a woman yesterday with lace ones that came mid calf under a tight skirt. They do allow you to sit in short, tight skirts.

However, I wear the ankle length, non see through ones for walking, taking out the dog, physical therapy, yoga etc. with long tops. I have less than perfect legs and I don't really care. Also, on me, long, tunic length tops look silly with loose pants.

Re: See-through leggings- classy?

I would never classify anything see-through as classy, that would be like an oxymoron

Re: See-through leggings- classy?

Kim is gorgeous and has a body to kill, I would definitely shag her. Now how is that for a girl to have no particular talent and manage to be an icon that all designers want to dress, people follow and envy?

I think she is pretty cleaver with it.

I didn't know until I found out on Internet

And yes I think she is cleaver to use it the way she does. Don't under-estimate her because she use her body to get money. Those bimbo are much smarter than they let people see...
