Oregon mom outlines decision to no longer wear leggings to honor God, husband in attire Veronica Partridge spills about her struggle over the form-fitting pants which she states had weighed 'heavy on my heart' for months before she resorted to banning them from her wardrobe. The Christian wife explains her fear that the pants inspire 'lustful' feelings among men who are not her husband. BY Nina Golgowski NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Friday, January 16, 2015, 8:49 PM A Christian wife and mother has announced her decision to no longer wear leggings so she won't inspire 'lustful' feelings from men who are not her husband. Lululemon, look away. An online blog post by a Christian wife and mother has created a firestorm in public chatter after her drawn-out declaration on why she will no longer wear “lustful” leggings. In what has become a contentious avowal — drawing more than 100 comments and 23,000 Facebook likes — Veronica Partridge spills about her inner struggle over the form-fitting pants, which for months she states had weighed "heavy on my heart." It wasn’t until the comely Oregon woman confronted her husband about his thoughts as a man that she resorted to banning them from her wardrobe. "...When I walk into a place and there are women wearing yoga pants everywhere, it's hard to not look. I don't, but it's not easy," he allegedly confessed to her. "If it is difficult for my husband who loves, honors, and respects me to keep his eyes focused ahead, then how much more difficult could it be for a man that may not have the same self-control?" she wrote. After making her decision to ditch the pants, she states: "...My conscience is clear and I feel I am honoring God and my husband in the way I dress." Some of her thousands of readers were also eager to share their own thoughts, from whether it's then ultimately right to wear makeup — as Partridge is seen doing in her photos — and how features deemed "sexy" or “lustful” aren't always provocative or immodest. "Some women find men in suits sexy. So does that mean men shouldn't wear suits?" wrote one reader. "There's nothing hotter than a guy in a 3 piece suit... what's more dressed up and conservative than that?" posted another. Many others argued that sexual attraction is going to happen regardless and so people should wear what makes them feel good — not at the mercy or fear of others. "…Not wearing leggings is not a magic bullet that will stop men from looking. Many men will probably look no matter what," said one reader. "One of the (many) unfortunate aspects of modern day Christianity is that women are discouraged from celebrating their sexuality. Can I have an amazing ass and also be close to God? Yes, I can," posted another. One man who also slammed the pants being worn in public, however, declared them as being "so formfitting ... you might as well be wearing nothing." "You wish to say that you shouldn't have to model your wardrobe according to how others will perceive you but I honestly see that as a cop out of sorts," he continued. "In all honesty that is an excuse I hear from people who know exactly what they are doing is likely to cause and then instead of being responsible for their actions they place the blame onto someone else."
