Why don't more women wear tights/leggings with dresses?
What Girls Said 36
I know, I agree.Unfortunately, right now, the bare look happens to be "In". Take comfort sweetie, asI do happen to be one of those gals that always wears, and enjoys wearing, some type of top shelf sheer hosiery, wether it's tights,pantyhose,or nylon stockings. There aren't a whole lot of us,these days, but I'm not alone, so don't give up hope.Trends always come and go.
i don't wear dresses without them. bare legs make me feel like a prostitute,i mean I don't have anything against bare legs on other girls,or prostitutes for that matter,but I don't feel comfortable without them.
I like wearing them. But contrary to what you said, I think only girls who are in shape should wear them.
Oh and by the way, I gave this question a rating of "Miserable" lol
I wear dresses/skirts with tights all the time in the fall/winter/spring (whenever it's too cold to go bare-legged, basically). *I* think it looks good. And I love tights, lots of different opacities/textures/colors! The favorite pair I have is sheer black with little hearts on them. :D
I think people look sort of ridiculous wearing skirts/dresses without something underneath when it's cold out.
I always wear tights (well in the winter anyways) Tights with shorts, tights with day/night dresses,tights with skirts yeahhh you get the point-I'm not sure why people think tights make you look young-pair them up with high heels or a great outfit and it works :) I just personally not keen on leggings!
I really don't wear dresses in general, I've started wearing them recently because I like the designs you can find on them.
Before I didn't really like them beecause, they were so form fitting it felt like I wasn't wearing anything and they kind of remind me of tights (which I also hate, I'd rather be bare-legged than wear tights) although they're more comfortable.
You might add that they work for women of any age! Not many things do.
1) tights are uncomfortable and warm
2) while they may flatter your legs, they don't flatter your middle. tights generally have a very tight and binding waistline so whether you are thin or heavy it is hard to avoid the bulge they create when combined with panties. I am not overweight and I do not carry a lot of my weight in the midsection but I definitely notice an extra "line" and possible bulge when I wear tights or pantyhose as opposed to bare legs. The bulge can be minimized with a skirt and shirt but with a dress it is hard to avoid. I have only found very few pairs that do not create this line.

I wear opaque tights under dresses and skirts all the time. Sometimes I'll wear leggings but they are much thicker and don't create the same look.
It depends on the dress, usually. If its shorter then I'll wear tights underneath it, but otherwise I don't worry too much about it. I like my legs, so why not show them off? :) Of course, I wear dresses very rarely so I suppose I don't have to bother with tights that much in the first place. I prefer to stick to jeans.
I wear tights with skirts almost all the time, except in the summer when it's too hot.
I don't tan real easy so I have to plan ahead and use some tanning lotion on my legs before summer. Otherwise I blind people.
hmmm...don't know what age level bare legs are "in" for. I know bare was in for the summer but winter time is an amazing time for fashion. You can dress much more and tights, nylons and leggings are an accessory. I love winter time just for this reason...and for those of you that don't like wearing them because they are uncomfortable around the middle...try thigh his. It is all I wear. It saves time in the bathroom and putting runs in your hose pulling them up and down. Sometimes can be hard to find, but I have ordered mine directly from hanes. They have a website and are less expensive than buying in the store.
I think a lot of women wear them, unless it's summer and hot outside. Then they get icky and uncomfortable
I wear them all the time! I like wearing dresses but it's too cold to have bare legs in the winter so I wear tights or thick leggings underneath.
I am 30 years old and have only just become comfortable enough too wear skirts shorts and dresses. I lived in long pants.
I've always hd a pretty good body jut lacked in confidence.
I now wear skirts shorts and dresses and feel great doing so. I wear tights but not with a dress.
I feel it's a comfort thing.
I prefer leggings and skirts more.
With dresses only if it is extremly cold...or I forgot to shave my legs or somethig.
I prefer bare legs with dresses though.
When it's really hot out, tights and leggings can be inconvenient just for the sweat factor. At least where I live, because we get really hot summers with high humidity, so sweat tends to pool at the small of my back in full tights or leggings and it gets uncomfortable. In that situation, bare legs usually just feel better, you get the breeze and whatnot. For the rest of the year though, I actually prefer having my legs mostly covered under a dress or skirt. Oregon autumns and springs are fairly mild and wearing tights cuts down on any chill and keeps legs a little more dry when it rains. During winter, tights or leggings under dresses and skirts are basically necessity if you want to stay warm at all. =] I have a pretty good collection of all kinds of stockings, full tights and leggings. I prefer them when I wear a skirt, especially if I end up with any kind of razor rash from shaving my legs, which is kind of inevitable no matter what I do because my skin is so sensitive.
i only wear tights with dresses or skirts in the winter time. not leggings with them though
i rarely use dresses, but when I do it's not with tights/leggings
I still wear tights but some people say its like for an old lady
I love tights and leggings. I don't think they are uncomfortable, maybe that's just because my grandmother always used to tell me "Beauty is pain" if I ever complained about my braids being too tight or my shoes hurting my feet. I love wearing them, especially if the weather is a bit chilly, that way I can still wear that mini-dress. I'm not over weight, but I do have a little bit of a "spare tire" as I call it around my hips. I often use tights and leggings that are high waisted to hide it, even under pants. And they are also great for when I don't have time to wax my legs. But most of the time I chose not to wear them, I have been told I have great legs, so I like to show them off.
I wear them if I wear something I think is too short
