Just so you know

Just so you know, while there will be mention of adult products, I'm not going to go into graphic details about anything. Even still, I realize that not everybody wants to read about adult products, so those will have a disclaimer at the top of each post :)

Fleece Leggings

I'm here today to tell you about the awesomeness that is fleece leggings.  Similar to most leggings you might find out there for fashion purposes, these just happen to be fleece lined, which makes them slightly more plush, slightly warmer, and slightly less see-through.

I really love the warmth factor personally.  Delivering car parts in the winter can get really chilly, and I spend mid-November to about mid-April wearing some sort of thermal leggings underneath my jeans. (At least I did last year, this year I hope to only be wearing them for fashion purposes).  Even underneath jeans with holes in them and it being a whopping 10 degrees outside, my legs could feel that it was cold, but not really feel cold themselves.  They also fit comfortably underneath jeans, which is amazing in and of itself.  You might not be able to get away with anything skin tight, but relatively tight jeans should still be relatively comfortable.

Now I know I can't speak for all fleece leggings with most of the rest of this here, since the ones I'm ranting about came from Charlotte Rousse, and I know they won't fit everybody.  However I did some Googling, and while the average price seems to be just under $30, a few pairs go as low as $10.

For the ones that I have, they do come in a few different sizes, and I happen to have the small.  I'm about 33" around the waist/butt area, and they fit me just fine there.  I did find them to be a bit tall, definitely aimed at folks taller than myself (5'2"), but this gave me some nice flexibility too.  For instance I could keep the ankle cuffs hooked underneath my own feet to keep the legs from riding up at all while moving around, and the top would come up well past my belly button which while mildly unattractive I'll give you, also allows for keeping the stomach area nice and warm.

I apologize also for the lack of pictures and the lack of complete thoroughness on this one, every time I try to take pictures of these, they disappear (quite a feat considering I own 3 pairs).  And since not all fleece leggings are created equal, and these will eventually become discontinued from Charlotte Rousse, going into extreme detail seemed a little pointless.  But, I will tell you that it is definitely worth looking into getting some fleece leggings.  Finding them online will be easier than finding them in a store, but definitely go looking either way!
