Army of Leggings

The leggings, this women’s stretch pants, is also very fashionable in Iran. Problem: it is not at all to the liking of the authorities who consider him too far from the regulatory Islamic dress. The women who wear so risk being arrested at any time.

The Tehran police chief says have temporarily shut down, in the capital, more than two hundred stores that had it in stock these “non-conforming clothing”. The appearance of these leggings had caused a stir on the Internet, where a Facebook group “I hate leggings” was created by ultraconservatives who consider that those who wear will quite simply too far.

A blog post titled “an army of leggings attack Tehran” was particularly supported by conservative sites. The author explains how the history of this slinky outfit was born during the winter of 2012 through the “Tehran Barbie dolls” who are suddenly infatuated is of “this strange sticky”. He goes on to say that women are particularly courageous since Hassan Rohani was elected president last June – it is considered the moderate Iranian power showcase – and is concerned about the appearance of leggings rusted in the capital.

The response was immediate: on a page called “Tights lovers”, Facebook users encourage inhabitants to post pictures of them wearing the controversial stretch pants, an initiative that has collected far more than 75,000 “I love”.

In Iran, women have the habit of flirting with the forbidden, many of them do not hesitate to get the nail polish or wear sandals.

“They made me sign a form in which I promised that I don’t wear leggings”

Eli is 27 years old, she lives in Tehran.

Two years ago, I was arrested for wearing leggings. I was walking in the District of Vanak, Tehran, dressed in black leggings and a long green coat. A woman of the morality police headed towards me and asked me why I was wearing such clothing. I asked him if it was forbidden and she replied: “Yes, the Government has just published a press release: this outfit is forbidden!”

I called my boyfriend so that it gives me a “decent” pants. I was going to change me when the police started to shout: “do you not change immediately, we need to take pictures of you wearing these tights”. They don’t let me go after signing a form in which I promised that I’ll wear never took me a photo from every possible angle.

A few days ago, while I was walking again to Vanak, I saw the religious police stop women in leggings and ship them in their vans. Once on the bus, I withdrew just before them my chador to provoke and because I also knew that they were not going to stop the bus for it.

Leggings simple all costs 200 000 to 400 000 rials [between 6 and 12 euros], whereas jeans cost at least 1 million rials [30 euros]. Many women prefer to have five leggings rather than a single pair of jeans.

At the last election [June 14, 2013], the religious police was fairly lax, now looks like she wants to make up for lost time by imposing an even more severe crackdown. Today, the leggings are very popular in Iran, yet wear a crime.

“The only thing I fear is that they will eventually tackle our underwear to check the color”

Tania is 29 years old and lives in Tehran.

Once, wearing boots that were above the knee was considered to be a crime, no wonder that leggings are a problem. The only thing I fear is that they will eventually tackle our underwear to check the color. If we don’t wear dark clothing, they think we’re going to excite men.

If only, rather than wasting their time to stop women for trifles, the authorities were trying to solve the everyday problems that are facing the majority of Iranians.
