Henrico County, Va. – The decision has been made.

If your child is a student in Henrico schools, they will be allowed to wear yoga pants to class next year, as long as they are not too tight or skimpy. That’s according to a report from WTVR in Richmond.

The Henrico School Board voted Thursday night to approve the new Code of Student Conduct.

An original draft of the code included language that would have made it against the rules to wear “yoga pants” at school. Yoga pants are tight, form-fitting pants designed to be worn during activities that require bending and stretching. However the pants are often worn casually by women — and young girls.

According to the report, the board decided to remove the yoga pants ban and instead kept the dress code more generic, simply banning skimpy and tight clothing.
