It maybe feels kinda how you feel when you wear shorts that are a little big in the legs. A little breezy like air conditioning in your pants lol! They are so comfortable when it's crazy hot outside. I live in skirts/dresses in the summer now because breezes are incredible and you don't get the same cooling effect as when you're in shorts:P. Maxi skirts are nice and comfy, but not as much when it is crazy hot. I do not wear mini. Only midi, maxi, and knee length. The funny thing is how people will ask you why you're so dressed... Little do they know that skirts and dresses require minimal effort and are comfy. Bonus.
Try it on! No one will know Lol. In long skirts I get pretty sweaty unless there's a very yummy burst of wind then its refreshing. Skirts look so pretty when we twirl and we feel freeeeee!!! Free from legs hair cuz it was winter and we get to shave woohoo!! Free from restricting denim, but sometimes your inner thighs chaffe when correct shorts are not worn. Plus we feel feminine and preeeety :)
If you are really curious you should try one on. Ask your girlfriend, I'm sure she would be flattered you asked.
Once when walking home after a night out, my BF asked why I wear high heels when they hurt my feet after a long night out. We were about the same size so I got him to swap shoes with me. After we got home he said they made him feel hot but hurt his toes lol.
