A Tennessee woman has created a public service announcement that has resonated with over 14 million viewers. The controversial topic she addresses is – leggings.
Jamie Higdon Randolph, of Cleveland, posted her advice on how women should, and should not, wear the clothing she refers to as “leggins,” on her Facebook page October 15.

“Leggings ain’t pants,” Randolph said in her Facebook post for the video that has apparently struck a chord with viewers on social media. The video has been viewed over 14 million times and brought national attention to the Tennessee mother, even landing her an interview Wednesday on Fox News’ “Fox and Friends.”
In the two-minute-15-second PSA, Randolph addressed the elephant in the room, as the comfortable garment has become a staple in women’s wardrobes.
“Some of you people like to use leggins as britches, as pants, pants,” said Randolph. “That ain’t how they’re supposed to be worn.”
“If you can’t wear a shirt that covers your tail so I can’t tell that you got some Aztec-print thongs on, you don’t need to be wearing them. If they’re too tight that I could see you got a tattoo on your leg, they’re too tight…that’s called panty-hose, honey.”
Randolph emphatically declared white leggings a “big old no-no,” and shared her ideas for how to dress up, and dress down, leggings appropriately.
“Nobody wants to see what kind of panties you’ve got on,” she said. “Nobody wants to see anything going up in any body part that you have, I assure you. I mean, that stuff’s best left for the bedroom!”
This was not Randolph’s first video opinion.
“I make public service announcements all the time, so that was just my public service announcement that day,” she said on Fox.
“I have nothing against leggings,” Randolph said, in response to some thinking she was telling women not to wear them at all.
“It’s just wearing them properly. Make sure your tail is covered. Make sure you cannot see anything through them. Then you’ll be fine.”
