I wore them the first time round <<gasp>> when I was about 12
I saw a woman of about 30 wearing some grey ones, sort of grey marl - she lookd a bugger and I was desperate to tell her. My friend just eviled me and said "don't even think about it" without me saying a word
I think it is all to do with proportions. I don't think I could get away with having my arse on show in them. I might only just get away with wearing them with ballet pump type things. My fat boots make my legs appear thinner.
