Men + Leggings, Whoa or No?!

Running errands the other day, I decided to take the scenic route and drive along the ocean. There is a bike path that follows the coast line and you can see the cyclists as they ride. One of the riders was all decked out in his yellow and black skin tight biking outfit. He looked fantastic in his gear and it got me thinking... Why do men have to be dressed for exercise to enjoy the feeling of leggings? We see men wearing them when cycling, swimming, (think full body wet suits), dancing, and running. But why do we have to be exercising to enjoy leggings? The fact is, we don't. Men can wear leggings any time they want. It's all about confidence. 

Product: Neon Soft Leggings

Leggings feel amazing and it's about time you started enjoying the feeling of wearing them. I think one of the biggest stigmas in our society is worrying about what other people think. I'm in my forties and it's taken me 30 years to realize that 99% of people are so wrapped up in their own lives that they could care less what you're wearing. And the 1%? The heck with them. Why live your life worrying about what people you don't even know think of you?

Do leggings make you feel good? Do you love the way the feel? Then wear them. Wear them to the mall, running errands, doing stuff around the house, working on the car, mowing the lawn. Feeling great in what you're wearing makes even the most mundane of tasks just that much more fun. If you're worried about them revealing too much of your boys then throw on a pair of shorts or a long t-shirt.

But PLEASE whatever you do, don't wear them with a headband and leg warmers. That look was terrible even in the 80's.

Hope you have an amazing week trying out leggings!



Fantastic blog I myself have gotten to the point in my life where I could care less about what other people think of me. I love my vinyl leggings I would wear them 24/7 if I could. First off there comfortable and feel and look amazing,nothing quite like walking around town with extremely shiny legs. I will be honest your going to get haters but who cares what they think but I can say if there looking they most think you look good in your leggings otherwise they would just keep on walking. Remember never go anywhere without wearing the tightest pair of leggings you can get into enjoy yourself and your life..

Thank you everyone for taking the time to comment. Leggings are not just for women anymore!

And Rob, I love wearing leggings but don’t have any pictures of myself in them as I don’t usually take selfies while out and about.

I’m working on a future blog and you just may get a glimpse of what I look like if you really want to see!

Thanks again

Men and leggings? Hell yeah! I alwsys wear athletic leggings to the gym and whenever I’m out running errands. They feel great and I happen to think I look pretty good in them. I stopped worrying about what people think many years ago. I’m not breaking any laws and I wouldn’t cause the most prudish person to blush. I just look like any normal guy who happens to be wearing leggings. I love them and that’s all that matters. Nobody has ever said anything and I doubt they ever will. I look forward to seeing more styles and fabrics in the future.

I have been wearing thigh high stockings for many years. They are very supportive and stylish. A suggestion, to enhance the whole experience of wearing leggings or stockings you should seriously consider shaving your your legs. It adds a wonderful sensation.

Jeff, That is great that you are able to wear leggings in class, you are totally correct that we should not be limited in what we can wear just because perhaps women got to them first! Coincidentally we at Body Aware are making a male dance belt using a double layer of super soft and stretchy fabric. Hoping it will be out in a couple of weeks.

I’m responding to Dan or anyone else who cares to read!

Let me first start by saying go for it! I love what you wrote and WE need to get over the thought that leggings are for woman only. They are incredibly comfortable. I’ve been taking barre classes which also is predominantly women for years now. I buy the same leggings they wear in class and I fit right in. I wear them to and from without issue. But I do add one undergarment that I think is a must. I purchased a men’s dancers brief from a local ballet shop. I won’t post the manufacturer info unless I’m told it’s ok on here. The mens dancers brief has several layers of fabric in the front to smooth that area out. And it works and works well. If we were in the right club setting I might want to “print” through. But not for everyday wear or to fitness classes. Just my thoughts. But guys, keep killing it! You all look hot and I know you feel ridiculously comfortable.

Take care,

Hey guys, I just got wind of this blog posting from my regular Body Aware email and saw the “Men + Leggings, Whoa or No?” topic and HAD to stop by and write. Let me just say this, I have many, many pairs of leggings that I wear around the house including one pair of shiny pleather leggings with zip pouch that I wore once outdoors when I was feeling particularly adventurous. I had a couple of looks, and one gent said good morning to me. Heck, I paid a lot of money for what I have and I have to get over this mentality about what others will think if they see me wearing them and start wearing them whenever and wherever I want. It’s just so hard to do, because I’m not used to people judging me to my face (I don’t care what they say when I’m not there). But what should I be worried about? I know the answer is NOTHING but the threat of embarrassment or disappointment still lingers. I need a boost of confidence. I’ve lost 30 pounds in the last 5 months and look pretty good in my leggings, but am still a bit afraid of showing off. It’s a comfort thing, you know? :)

I love wearing leggings at the gym. I have one pair of bodyaware leggings, but want to try some more. I teach group fitness classes and prefer to wear thongs under my leggings so they don’t slide down and not show lines. I really don’t like it when guys wear them and then wear knee length baggy shorts over them. I tried this look at first and it just made it hot and non functional.

Bryan May 24, 2018

I love leggings, glad you have added them to your line. Up until now I have worn girls leggings but am looking forward to trying yours.

Thom Williamson May 24, 2018

Hey Ron – great points here. What I’d like to know is, when are we going to see you wearing leggings when you’re out running errands? ;)


Rob May 24, 2018

It’s time that men be men. Now, you have to think this saying over really hard. “Men be Men. “If another man is worried about what another man is wearing, then think about it, who’s really acting feminine? And let’s say another woman is worried about a man wearing leggings, skinny jeans, etc…. why is she so worried, if in fact she’s not your mother, sister, wife, or girlfriend.
I wear my skinny jeans, or track leggings whenever I want, and any man who has something to say about how I dress, is rather suspicious, and if the girl who is complaining, is not cooking my dinner, raising my kids, or even in my corner, she too can take her comments, and choke on them.

i’m going to get the modern leggings finally next week… they look awesome and sexy as hell…. love the look and feel of shiny faux leather….have lots of other hot gear myself for doing whatever….but i beg to differ about the look of leggings in the 80’s… did look hot on SOME people, not all but some if they can get away with it…heh. :) styles come and go all the time so the thing is to be different and be your own person and not care about what other think these days anymore, i don’t….if you have the body to wear hot, sexy tight clothing than show it off!!!!!!
