#1 Sometimes, yes, but mostly because leggings are awesome and we're proud of our butts. OP, *I've never tried it* but I've heard that baby powder reduces the moisture between legs and helps with that, maybe you should try it? Don't let this make you not feel beautiful though xoxo
Thanks, this was a legit question. Both skirts and leggings simultaneously never made sense to me. They look terrible combined, and if you're cold or self-conscious of people "looking", don't wear a skirt at all. This is the first practical reason I've heard of.
I've worn leggings with skirts or dresses because I've been in Arabic countries or its gotten colder. Plus sometimes it looks good. Also means you don't have to sit with your legs stuck to eachother. My sister sometimes uses plasters on her thighs to stop them chafing, whereas I just wear tights.
If it is an opinion, it sould read "I think it looks bad", not " it looks bad". The latter is just a statement and not a personal opinion. Really, just adding "I think" or "in my opinion" makes a comment sound so much less bitchy. As in, I think leggings and skirts look great together. It also means you can wear your skirts a lot more, like on chilly or windy days.
#60 Saying a girl shouldn't wear skirts if they're self-concious about it or when it's a bit too cold, doesn't sound like an opinion to me. Sure, you may not like how it looks, I don't care if that's your opinion, but that shouldn't be a reason for another person to not wear something.
I don't know why this is getting down voted. I completely agree that women should wear what they are comfortable in, and that's basically what's being said (at least how I read it) if you're self conscious wearing something then don't wear it and wear something you feel good in. what's wrong with that?
Hey you should still feel pretty!!! It doesn't matter your size, that happens to several people even if they're the skinniest person you've ever laid eyes on.
It is not unrealistic standards but for most people it would be unhealthy standards. Men and women are shown to be the most attractive human beings because that sells products. Good looking people that you want be like, for me a and women, makes you want that product or whatever it is because you think you will look more like the person on the product,
You can buy little sleeves that keep your legs from chafing, and having your legs touch doesn't mean jack. If you feel pretty, wear the darn skirt.
I've heard that a plain stick of deodorant can help with chafing etc... You go rock that skirt!
Buy cheap nylon pantyhose and cut the legs off just above where the skirt ends! Rock that skirt, you can be pretty regardless of size!
I've done that plenty of times: the first half inch or so rolls up, but then it stops. And they do eventually start to unravel, but you get about 3-5 days of wear out of them. That's why I said CHEAP nylons - they cost next to nothing. You wouldn't want to do that with extra luxurious ones that cost a fortune.
Yes, chafing of the thighs... I feel OP's pain, especially during summer. Knee-length body-shapers, tights, or leggings of various lengths are the best solutions I've found (depending on the season). Don't want them showing at your knees? Wear a longer skirt. All you have to do to wear sandals with tights is get sandals that don't have the little toe-post. That the tights keep your shoes from rubbing holes into your feet is also a bonus.
