A Love Letter to My Leggings
You are what makes life worth living
I know I’m not the best with words, nor do I do a good job of expressing myself. I never want you to feel like I don’t appreciate you enough. So I wanted to take a moment and put a few words in writing, where perhaps I can express some of how much you mean to me.
First, I want to thank you with all of my heart. Thank you for accepting me and my curves. You have been with me through thick and thin. You have grown with me over time and have allowed me to expand my world.
I know that you love me unconditionally.
And, oh, how you make me feel. In you, I feel sexy and alive. The way that you hold me with every move makes me want to sway and dance. I am happiest when I am wrapped in your warm embrace. There is nowhere I would rather be.
Sometimes, I know I may not make it clear how much I love you. I’m sure it must pain you that I resist being seen in public with you. Just know that it is about my own issues and not my love for you.
When we’re together, I want to be fully enjoying the feeling you give me. When in public, I admit I worry about what society might think. I’m concerned that people are wondering what a beautiful pair of leggings like you is doing with me.
Just that thought, even though I know it doesn’t concern you, makes me enjoy the time we spend together less. So it’s easier for us to keep our love to the comfort of home. I hope you understand.
And the thing is that I know you understand.
Through everything, you never judge me. You simply offer me love and comfort.
As you know, I’ve been with other clothing. And some have fit me.
But there have been none like you.
With them, I always knew that it was a matter of five pounds up or down and they wouldn’t be on me comfortably any longer. It was always the elephant in the closet.
But I can have that piece of cake or second beer with you. You just hug me a little closer instead of hurting and punishing me.
I have never known a love like this before. Every moment that I am away from you feels like an eternity. I’m breathless and in despair until I can be wrapped in you again.
I want you to know that you are my first thought in the morning and the last thing I think about before I drift off to sleep. In my best dreams, you are with me as well.
I cherish you, my Dear Leggings. I want to be with you always.
With all of my love,
