Default Bare Naked Ladies

Are you one to go bare legged when dressed formally, or must you wear hose?

Ooops!! I thought you meant . . . well, never mind . . .

I wear evening pants, so no hose. With a dress, I would wear hosiery.

I really like the way my legs look better without hose(show off my muscles) Also hose makes my shoes slide around. So Im a bare legged girl. I do dress up my skin with a shimmer lotion though!

I wore hose or knee highs with slacks. I don't like to go barefoot in my pumps.

hosiery with dress heels, naked with dressy sandals.
My formal dresses are form fitting and i think that hosiery(especially slight control top) makes for a nice clean line.

I noticed a lot of ladies didn't have on hose, but I did. Probably just a habit, but also, I look better with them on.

No hose for me. I make sure I get a pedicure before I leave and wear a nice dressy sandal.

Agree with lots of the ladies....no hose with sandals (EVER!!), but a nice pedicure with beautiful sandals.

Either panty hose or knee highs unless wearing sandals. Just can't wear good shoes without.

No way, I hate the things. I much prefer bare legs and toes, and will sometimes use a shimmery tinted moisturizer to enhance the tan...

I will wear hose with shorter dresses and closed toe shoes. No hose with pants, long gowns, and strappy sandals.

I think it may be an age thing with hoses. Younger women just do not wear them. I will not wear them, I'm 34. But, my mom who wore them for years, now 63, is now swearing by this stuff from Sally Hanson that is a spray on mist stuff that makes it look like you have hoses on. She swears it doesn't rub off, until you shower, and it helps hide spider veins and such. She got it at Wal-mart.

Guess I'm outa' my mind cause I wear them all the time. Well, not ALL the time, but whenever I'm dressed up. I just don't feel properly dressed without hose. Guess it's just me but I don't find them hot either.
My daughter on the other hand, just can't abide them. Maybe it is the age thing. I'm 53 and she's 28.

I am out of my mind too. I also don't wear them all the time, but on the ship, on formal night, I did, and it looked and felt fine.
