The Daily Mail ^ | 28 May 2014 | COREY CHARLTON

Posted on 05/28/2014 3:01:33 PM PDT by MinorityRepublican

Qatar has issued a decree advising tourists that leggings are not considered pants and are not modest enough to wear in public.

Leggings have been singled out in pamphlets distributed by the Gulf state as inappropriate attire for tourists in the notoriously strict Islamic country.

The Reflect Your Respect campaign, launched by the Qatar Islamic Cultural Center, has listed some advice and tips for tourists on how to dress modestly in preparation for the 2022 Football World Cup it is hosting. Mail on Facebook

Qatar didn’t want to open that can of worms, labeling women’s clothing is a nightmare, they’re going to find out all about capris and yoga pants and tights and pedal pushers and dozens of other things any sane man would call leggings but they aren’t.

It should be illegal for some people to wear leggings without a girdle.
Leggings is just a cover up name for tights.

I’ve done a lot of crazy things in my life, but I’m proud to say I’ve never owned a pair of his and her tights.

Can’t see outright banning stuff like that, though I think that all countries should highly encourage the concept that things like leggings or spandex are a privilege and not a right

In Europe “pants” mean underpants.

What we call “pants”, they call trousers.

“Tourism in Qatar?”
______________________________________
I know nothing of tourism in Qatar, but they do have the second best rated airline in the world.
It is sad that no American carrier is in the top 25.

I have had three flights on Qatar, stopping in Doha.
For ten bucks you can go into the first class lounge, where you can have ANYTHING you want to eat and drink for free.
That includes liquor and excellent wines. They also have Wi-Fi and even beds, if you want to sleep.

I wonder what Barack is going to let us American women wear.

Probably liederhosen with swastikas embroidered on them.

Don't laugh...the end is nigh.

Don’t you mean “hammer and sickle”? That is more representative of his politics.

I had leggings in gray, black, and brown this winter, so I could wear the gray skirt, the black skirt, and the brown dress without freezing my knees. I could even wear them under my Scout uniform pants. A brilliant invention!

Yes, and worn in that way, they are modest, too.

One evening I came home from Cub Scouts, hung up my uniform pants and shirt, and went downstairs in the leggings and long sleeve t-shirt I’d been wearing underneath. The girls squealed, “Oooh, you’re wearing leggings!” as if I’d had on fishnet hose and a bustier. Weird.

LOL! I think that they look cute when worn with a long tunic top or a dress or skirt that is a bit above the knee. A younger person may look fine in something shorter.

I had a ... nether garment ... in black velour that I wore with a long blouse. I’m not sure if they were labelled “leggings” or “pants,” but they were too thick to be comfortable under a long skirt or dress.

I saw some tasteful outfits of skirts and leggings or skirts and tights during the winter. Thick knit tights were in fashion a few years ago, but they’re itchy and prone to static cling. The cotton-blend leggings from Hanes work better.

I just ordered some leggings. They’re a thin cotton & spandex blend, I believe. They were on clearance, and I’m not sure what I’m going to do with them, but I can see myself wearing more skirts in the future. This is a good time of year to pick up some inexpensive additions to the wardrobe, and maybe take some fashion chances.

During my two visits to Dubai one of the things that struck me was that you could see women dressed head-to-toe in those black burlap sacks (that even covered their eyes) in the same mall as women dressed almost as “revealingly” as you'd see in this country during the summer.
