Do you wear full on tights or thigh highs/knee highs.

The older I get, the more uncomfortable I feel in restrictive and hot clothing like tights. I can handle them in the winter or fall, but in spring/summer...I just can't anymore...

I have no issues with it. I think it’s a matter of finding the right company and fit. Tights too tight can be really uncomfortable even in the winter.

They are called "tights" for a reason! LOL

Wish they were called "loosey goosies!"

I don't wear everyday but ... I find tights to be very helpful with my chafing thighs and Chub rub.

Oh that was your mistake all these years! I don’t buy tights. I buy pantyhose! Rolling Laughter

Leggings accomplish the same thing and are so much softer. They are still too hot in summer though.

I work in an office that gets extremely over heated and the AC unit is very loud so I prefer not to turn it on if I can help it. I tend to wear a lot of maxi skirts so I dont have to wear socks or I wear trouser socks that I get at target. I never wear full tights ever.

I never either had an issue until I hit 40. Now, they're the second thing I take off as soon as I step in the door (the first is the sheitel). It has nothing to do with a perfect fit. I have those. But they're just as well uncomfortable in the heat & especially in the humidity,

I've tried many. I'm just the kind of person that pulls off my tights and wig the minute I walk in the order. I relish Sundays where I don't need to go anywhere so I can stay in a sweatshirt and leggings.

I think I have a sensory issue in general where I hate the feel of certain material (like nylon) and restrictive clothing/fabrics. I like lightweight cotton, but all tights are elasticized to conform to your body and there is no breathing space for your skin. And sweat gets trapped in the tights - especially around the enclosed foot area. YUCK! I need to be free.

I'm in my 40's. On very hot days, I find that I get kind of sweaty, and I need to wash up and change my stockings midday. And at some point in the evening, I switch to a long slinky skirt and comfortable socks. Or if I'm very uncomfortable, I go casual earlier in the day.

I hate thigh highs or stocking-knee-highs. I find them less comfortable. And they are bad for your veins, too.

The elastic bands at the top get super uncomfortable. I think I will invest in longer skirts and socks.

I only wear thigh highs. The ones I buy aren’t very tight, so I hope that they’re not bad for my veins! Never thought of that.

Are there ones that don't curl and roll up? I don't know if it's how my legs or shaped or the way I walk but I've never found any type of thin, biker-like shorts that didn't curl and roll up and become useless and uncomfortable.

I hate tights/pantyhose. The low denier are too fragile and I can't find my color in a higher denier so I end up wearing black year round which gets hot and uncomfortable in the summer. I do like leggings but I hate the gap and for some skirts/dresses they don't look as nice. I haven't tried socks because my thighs are best friends and in the summer there is contention lol soo massive uncomfortable chub rub. Even when I was skinny my thighs touched so socks are out.

Mostly, I just silently hate it and take them off as soon as I get home.
