Do You Wear Underwear Under Leggings and Tights?

I know, I know: leggings are not pants and tights are not pants. But are they underpants?

Last year I was walking with some friends when I said, “Hold on, I need to adjust my underwear,” and then reached into my leggings to do just that.  (It was dark, and on a quiet block, I swear.)

“Why are you wearing underwear?” a friend asked.

“Um…” I said.
”I never, ever wear underwear under tights,” said another.
“But these are leggings. I wear underwear under pants, and these are…”
“Not pants,” a friend finished for me.
“Neither of you wear anything under leggings, or tights?” I asked.
They shook their heads. “Never have.”

So I stopped. Just to see. It felt odd, yet freeing. Comfortable yet naughty. It mostly just feels strange to get dressed and put on a bra but no underwear. And I wear bras 99.6% of the time.

What about you? Always…sometimes… never… depending on…? This only works if one wears long, tunic-type garments or dresses over the leggings, otherwise, there is show through during bending. And no one wants that. Probably not no one, but.
