It happens to the best of us but I’m pretty sure it’s an isolated girl thing.

We busy fem fatales accidentally put our fashionable, stretchy workout pants on inside out! (not backward, but inside out) Allow me to paint you a visual. Wearing yoga pants or leggings inside out is when the stitching and lining are actually showing. The tag and all of its machine washing instruction glory is waving in the wind for all to see. It’s also highly possible that the white triangle crotch area is fully exposed and completely visible. OH YEAH, have you been there? ?

This little mishap does not discriminate dear darlings. Young or old at some point it will happen if it hasn’t already to you or someone you know.

All day long ladies everywhere are sporting their tight black or printed activewear wrong side out. Oh yeah they are! I bet one out of 20 moms at an elementary school PTO meeting are wearing their pants inside out. One of these all-star moms will leave the PTO meeting to grab a quick workout at gym, followed by a long leisurely stroll through the grocery store. All the while she has no clue and chances are nobody has bothered to tell her. Who knows, maybe this doll was having such a superior hair day she opted for a BAD bottom half day.

I picture the girl who gets up early on Saturday to workout. She lays her clothes out like a good little workout warrior. Before coffee is when most crimes of the inside out happen. She gets dressed before the first sip and just like that…robbed wrong side out!

A bathroom break is most likely the first opportunity to catch the mistake. When we do and the horror hits our sweet busy brains, it’s panic. Suddenly we begin chronicling our whereabouts. The truth is that almost all day long we/she has been out gallivanting all over town inside out! Mortified but slightly thankful that the pants were clean and not from the bottom of the closet like usual. Thank goodness no one was around to snap a GLAMOUR don’t pic…or was there??   Stupid technology.

The cringe turns into a funny smirk. You manage a giggle because hey, you literally got dressed in a dark closet under 5 minutes while half asleep. You’re a rock star like that.

Of course you can’t help but wonder how many people knew and didn’t say anything?

Trainer Rule #5: Always discretely tell a client/friend if you notice their clothes are on backward or inside out!!! For that matter, it’s actually standard polite decent normal people protocol to say something.  Hello, girl code 101 people!

It happens, so what.

I salute all of you bold broads who have owned the day despite your inside out error.  It takes one to know one!

Peace, double check and no one really gives a heck!

  1. My aunt says that you should keep wearing the clothes inside out for at least some time if you have already done it accidentally. She thinks of it as a good sign.
    My god women!

  2. I actually have never done that, but I can totally imagine the horror one must feel. If I ever notice someone’s clothes are inside out, I will definitely let them know and I would want someone to do the same for me. I’d rather have that little moment of embarrassment than feeling that horrid mortification at the end of the day when I realize.

  3. YES! Tell the poor girl! I do this with my friends and even strangers if they have food in their mouth – Which I think is 10 times more embarrassing. Rather I tell them then them walking around all day looking like they have something funky going on in their mouth!

    If you have time, check out my latest blog post at http://www.tootinghustle.wordpress.com and let me know what you think!

    Happy blogging x

    1. Laura…thanks so much! On Thursday I was training a girl and she took off her jacket and I noticed her pants were inside out. I told her and she stripped them off right in the gym…the inside was exactly the same as the outside…. IT HAPPENS! have a FITastic monday!
