Are pleather leggings sweaty?

My niece has asked me for pleather leggings for Xmas (probably because she knows her mum won't buy them for her!) I looked in Next and New Look today, but I wondered if they'd be very sweaty and uncomfortable?

I can't imagine them being any other way. I saw some shiny ones in debenhams, this afternoon, and my first thought was thrush.

Actually they aren’t too bad...primark have a great pair for £9

Mine aren’t sweaty and I’ve had a tonne of compliments on them... £15 from tescos. They are so comfy! But they do make a weird leaf rustling noise when I walk!!!

Yes, I thought Thrush Central and rustling! She thinks I'm cool auntie but I think I will ask my SiL if she's ok with her having them.

I have some and wore them shopping the other day. Rushing round an indoor shopping centre did make for sweaty legs and crotch but if I wear them when I’m not rushing round they are absolutely fine and not sweaty at all. In fact if I wear them on a cold day outside my legs are freezing, much colder than in jeans

Ps they do swish when I walk but so do my real leather leggings. The real ones also squeak quite embarrassingly when I’m sitting on a wooden chair if I move

Mine aren't sweaty. They're from Next.

I think they are awful and making think thrush factory, itchy burning crotch

zippyswife Sun 12-Nov-17 20:11:46

Ps I’ve worn mine quite a bit and no thrush! ..... yet confused

Not sweaty at all. The Next pull on coated leggings are fantastic.

Your niece doesn't care about the practicalities, really. Just buy her the sweaty leggings and bask in awesome auntiness.

Next one should are fabulous!

Well, my SiL says that while she certainly isn't prepared to buy them because she thinks they are totally impractical, she doesn't really mind her having them. So have ordered a pair of Next ones and some rainbow make up brushes. I think my cool auntie crown will survive another year grin.
