Along with a number of other everyday wardrobe staples, schools have targeted the stretchy pants. Most recently, a South Carolina principal issued a warning to female students wearing the tight bottoms. “I’ve told you this before, I’m going to tell you this now, unless you are a size zero or two and you wear something like that, even though you’re not fat, you look fat,” Heather Taylor, the principal of Stratford High School, was recorded saying on Wednesday during a discussion with ninth and tenth graders, WCBD News 2 reports. Lots are upset by Taylor’s statements and have taken to the school’s Facebook page to comment on the situation, with many saying the administrator should be fired.

LuLaRoe, a multilevel marketing company known for its leggings and empowering its women sellers, has seen an increase in its community of male sellers.
On Tuesday, the company proved it’s listening. The controversy surrounding the four-year-old company’s merchandise stems back to at least February, when a customer filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Western Pennsylvania, “alleging that it has been illegally collecting sales tax in states that don’t have it.” From there, LuLaRoe was indicted in a chorus of complaints for the allegedly poor quality of its wildly popular patterned leggings. At the time, Patrick Winget, LuLaRoe’s head of production, wrote in an email to retailers: “The leggings may get holes, because we weaken the fibers to make them buttery soft,” adding, “We have done all we can to fix them.” Winget said the company uses a special airbrushing effect to achieve the texture.
LuLaRoe, the clothing brand known for its insanely soft leggings and multilevel marketing strategy, is being sued for allegedly producing poor-quality items. In response to a lawsuit filed against LuLaRoe alleging poor-quality leggings, one writer says women shouldn’t wear leggings at all.

The reader wrote that she instructed the intern to abide by the business casual dress code at the start of her internship but has found that the intern often wears “skin-tight leggings and tops that do not cover bottoms and hips.” The reader wonders if she should address it with the intern, even though the internship is quickly coming to an end.

The Duchess tries her hand at abseiling @mountainrescueuk in Snowdonia https://t.co/5qKuOGnVBP— Kensington Palace (@KensingtonRoyal) November 20, 2015 If the fairytales are to be believed, then one of the reasons why Prince William fell for Kate Middleton when they were students at the University of St. Andrews was because of how to down to earth she was. They went for walks in the woods, drank beer at the local pub, went hunting with the Queen’s corgis, and skiing in the Alps. Now, as the parent of two heirs to the throne, it seems that her adventurous spirt still comes out sometimes between dressing up in Jenny Packham for galas and attending charity events across the kingdom.
