The 5 Stretchiest Leggings to Wear While You Binge Eat This Weekend
For Thanksgiving and beyond.
While we're generally loyal members of the no pants club, the winter chill has forced us to reconsider our options. Luckily, leggings exist, and though they're mostly intended for high-intensity exercise, we prefer to wear them for another high-intensity activity: Binge eating.
Thanks to the athleisure trend, it's easy to find a pair of well-made (a.k.a. not see-through), cute, and, most importantly, stretchy leggings to pair with your favorite oversized sweater and boots this holiday. (See cozy Thanksgiving spirit animal Kendall Jenner, above). We guarantee even Grandma will approve.
Plus, the best part about investing in a pair? You can wear them to the gym while you work off your third helping of potatoes. Or, you can also save them for next weekend when you inevitably scarf down the last half of pumpkin pie "before it goes bad." Your call.
