Second time writing this post! I accidentally deleted everything the first time around...
One of my flatmates was asking me for advice earlier about which leggings are actually not see-through since she has to double up on her current ones in order for them to be completely opaque. As the CEO of Lululemon learned too late, in order to really test whether a pair of leggings are truly not see-through, one has to physically put them on and bend over to check whether their underwear shows through the material.
I know that leggings have been scorned in the fashion world in the past, but honestly I can't be bothered by that. They are often the easiest and most comfortable things to throw on under a chunky sweater or tunic-length shirt. And it seems that they may be making a comeback of sorts.
I thought it'd be useful to go through our own closets and test out some of the leggings we own and document which ones actually pass the see-through test and which ones don't. Here goes!
