Little Mix have always had a bit of stick over their wardrobe choices during gigs.

Some people have argued that because their fan-base consists of younger girls, that they should 'act more like role-models' and cover up their skin.

I personally don't see them doing anything different to most of the stars out there today, and legends like Madonna and Britney Spears have been dressing like this for years, but who am I to comment?

The band have recently announced that they are bringing out more active-wear for brand, USA Pro.

In an interview with the Mail Online, the singers discussed some of the hate they've received for their 'raunchy' attire.

Jade Thirlwall told the publication: "I don't think we're sexing ourselves up, we're sweating our t**s off on stage. We want to wear leotards."

"It's comfortable to dance in and we're doing an hour and a half set, we're not going to come on to the stage in a tracksuit - it's just not practical."

Perrie Edwards then backed up her fellow band-mate, by saying: "We could wear a frickin' bin liner on stage and people complain.

"We could wear a full bodysuit! We've been in the industry for six years, we're tired of it all now and all the comments. We want to wear what we want to wear and we want to tell women to wear what they want to wear and be comfortable"

Leigh-Anne Pinnock said: "We've all been through a stage where we don't like things about ourselves, and if I'm honest, it still happens now. We still pick ourselves apart. The difference is we've really learnt to love the skin that we're in because we're all made this way and we're all different for a reason."

'We're a really good support for each other too and we always really compliment each other."

I think any band that encourages women to be happy in their own skin, and to dress the way they want should be praised, and not tore apart.

Let the girls wear their leotards!
