    Ladies, do you wear pantyhose/nylons when you wear skirts? I don't get the feeling that it would be "unseemly" these days to go without, but would any of you feel weird wearing/not wearing them?

    I'd be curious to see ages along with the responses. I suspect that the younger generation is more anti-hose than the more seasoned folks.

    I do most times. If it is a super hot day and a long-ish skirt/dress, I might not. Also if we are planning something outside (like our annual bbqs), I might not.

    But 9 times out of 10 I wear them.

    However, I'd say at least half the ladies at our school hardly ever wear them if at all.

    Rarely. Occasionally tights in winter.

    Never. I'm 23.

    I love wearing colorful tights in the winter though.

    I don't wear pantyhose ever. I'm fine with bare legs when the weather is nice. I wear tights in the winter with dresses.

    All the skirts and dresses I wear to school are at my knee or lower, so I never feel the need to wear them. Maybe I just don't understand the purpose of them. I will wear tights sometimes though.

    I try to be pretty conservative with what I wear to school, but I just don't like pantyhose/nylons.

    Not always! :D

    Though with it being extremely hot till late fall, that may influence preference in our area.

    I don't know if it's my age (42) or my upbringing (insanely conservative) but I only have bare legs in the summer months. My part of the country is very relaxed about dress code type things, so I don't think anybody cares!

    I only wear tights in the winter when I wear a dress or skirt. I think pantyhose are very uncomfortable and usually get a run in the after 1 wear. I am 26.

    Depends on weather, if it's a day I have to be on the playground and length of dress. I don't like them but don't like my legs too much anymore either . :blush: Another one of the seasoned ones.:)

    Absolutely never, although I do wear tights in the winter - navy, black, or brown usually. I am in my late 20s. But I'm also in California, and I don't see older people wearing them either. We are a pretty casual state, I think. ;)

    I'd say I'm pretty "seasoned" :lol:, but I answered "No". I don't remember the last time I wore hose. Up until this past 6 months or so, after I lost a considerable amount of weight, I hadn't worn a dress or skirt in years. Now, I'm accumulating several for my fall and winter wardrobe. I'll wear tights, though, not pantyhose.

    To hot here in Fl anytime except winter! I only wear them for formal occasions. (I'm a seasoned one too!)

    Only in cool/cold weather. In the summer I go with skirts and dresses with bare legs and nice sandals.

    Only for a formal event, rarely to school. I don't wear dresses in the winter though, although that may change.

    29 here and no. Spanx underneath dresses and skirts are as close as I get. When the weather is cooler I will sometimes wear tights or leggings if it coordinates with what I'm wearing that day.

    I never wear skirts to school, I'm all about long pants.

    But when I wear skirts I don't wear stockings. Unless it's cold, then I wear fun printed tights!

    I'm a month away from 43.

    I rarely wear hose. Usually I wear them with dressier items, but those aren't typically what I wear to work. I wear tights in winter.

    I'm 25 and I'm a big promoter of tights/hose. They just make me feel more comfortable, and I love the look (one of my favorite actresses, Zooey Deschanel, always looks adorable in her tights). Plus they let me cover up my super pale legs! Wouldn't want to distract them with worries about whether I'm a ghost or a vampire. ;)

    In summer, I wear them for special/professional occasions when I'm wearing close-toed shoes. For example, I wore them to an interview with my blazer/skirt business suit. I'm 27. I wear tights in winter all the time, mainly black, brown, or grey.

    I don't own any! I do have some tights, but I would only wear them when it is very cold (not often in Texas!).

    Not necessarily! I am a 'seasoned' teacher, and I don't see the need to wear panty hose except during the winter when bare legs would be cold.

    I'm 50 --- and so are my legs! :eek:No, seriously, NOBODY wants to see the veins on my legs.
    I wear tights (with feet) in the winter and pantyhose the rest of the year, unless it's hot and my skirt is longish.

    Haven't worn pantyhose in yrs...not since I last went to church.

    I'll wear the opaque tights in the winter with short skirts.

    I did once during my first year and was pretty much laughed at (not in a mean way, but an 'are you crazy?' way) by my coworkers. I haven't worn them since.

    I don't feel comfortable wearing dresses/skirts without hose & I'm only 22. My dad is a pastor & I grew up wearing hose/tights every Sunday and with skirts/dress to school. It's a way of life :rolleyes:

    Never nylons! I wear skirts and dresses almost every day. In summer, bare legs. Fall or Spring, maybe leggings, maybe bare. Winter, tights.

    Look at these: [​IMG]

    I never wear hose, but I'll wear tights or leggings in the winter. I do wear knee highs though with slacks. They are cheaper than socks!

    I can't remember the last time I had a pair of hose. I know I had a pair of black opaque ones once, until I discovered leggings.

    It's posts like this that make me miss Alice. :(

    I honestly don't know anyone under 60 who wears them...even my 51 year old mother says she's too young for that! I think at one time they were in fashion for younger people, but that time is long gone! My legs do look MUCH better with them, but I'd be embarrassed to wear them because of my age (25). I wore them for interviewing only because they do look nice, but they drove me nuts. I'd get about one wear out of a pair before they got a run. I did find it was more comfortable buying a size up even though I'd been buying correctly before according to the height/weight chart on the package.

    In the winter I always wear leggings, or tights if I'm trying to look nicer. All of the teachers at my school did the same.

    To school? When the heat index can be 102? No. Freaking. Way.

    If I do wear them for non-school related functions, I wear thigh highs. I just can't do full-on torture.

    I'm 40 and, no, I haven't worn those since my first year of teaching, 5 years ago. As a matter of fact, the first week of teaching. I wore a pair, got a snag on them from my desk, went home to change in to pants, and never wore them again.


    I am looking at leggings for the cute skirts I have and to wear under my pants when I have recess duty in the winter. :)

    After reading other responses I realized I should have chosen "no" since I never wear "pantyhose" or "nylons" but I do wear tights in the winter if it's chilly. I didn't really think about the difference until now and was using the words interchangeably. Learn something new every day! :)

    I don't think I understand the difference between pantyhose, leggings and tights! Tights don't have feet (and often seemed to be worn as pants?), leggings are thick pantyhose and then pantyhose are nude coloured?
