I’m too scared to wear my new leather leggings in case they split!
This wouldn’t happen, would it? they definitely fit, even perhaps a little room to spare (despite lots of advice to go down a size I didn’t because of the split-terror) but I’m curvy and split my faux-cheapy ones in the past.
They are the Cos ones. Saved like mad for them. Cost per wear would make them great value if I wasn’t so terrified to wear them I don’t know what Cos customer service is like if they do split too.
Oh yes I have worn them and stroked them in front of the mirror a fair bit. They are just lovely... but what if they do split? Would Cos take them back? Or would they just assume I was too porky for them?? it says I not have 14 days to return things.
They only reason they would spilt is if they are faulty and then they'd have to take them back. If you can get into them without having to grease yourself up then you're definitely not too porky (as you put it yourself).
Would you be wearing knickers under them or would split mean your bum crack being displayed to the world? Turn that fear of crack flashing into a frisson of excitement instead. 'Today could be the day I show my bountiful bum cheeks to the world. How sexy.'
My understanding is that under the Sale of Goods Act 1979 goods have to be of satisfactory quality, ie fit for purpose. So unless you are acting unreasonably and trying to squeeze yourself into a too small size, they would need to refund them if they split after just a couple of wears
I’m going to bite the bullet and wear them in Paris this weekend. I’m sure splitarse isn’t tres Parisienne but at least if it does happen I won’t ever see any of the witnesses again! Unlike the Whistles drwas incident which was at a family wedding
