Fed up of my skirts and dresses 'sticking' to my 1,000,000 denier tights.
Can't not wear my woolly tights, but how to stop the skirt from sticking and riding up my legs?
Do slips work? Do I need to buy a silk or poly one?
Am I rapidly heading for Nora Batty 'ville? Indeed, my woolly tights do wrinkle. I was trying for the chic Miss Marple/librarian look rather than 'I grow out my leg hair in winter and am trying to hide it' :-)
I always thought this was about lining, isn't it? Things lined with silky fabric can be worn with tights, things with cotton lining are for summer? If not then I want a slip so I can wear my "summer" things!
Anti static spray is brilliant. I was skeptical at first but now I use it all the time when wearing dresses and tights, and floaty tops which tend to cling to me. It works so well and lasts all day. I got a massive bottle from Amazon as I use it constantly.
I wear them mostly under my wool tunics or summer dresses but they are also essential for me if I wear a skirt/wool tights/boots combo. They give anything a better line and as well as stopping itching and cling.
