Whew. No, ugh.

Sudden overwhelming exhaustion, I'll keep it short.

Here's what I want to know.  WHY can't they make tights that don't sag in the middle.  I mean, honestly.  It is not exactly as if a woman's shape is some weird mystery.

The pair I wore today were saggy in the middle and too big in the feet.  What sort of duck-legged woman would wear these?  I'll grant my legs are on the longish end of the spectrum so maybe getting enough length is an issue, but my feet ain't petite, and these suckers were waaaaay big.

I'll bet whoever these were designed for doesn't sway much when the wind blows.

Sometimes I think women's clothing is designed by men who have never actually seen a woman.

And that's why I never wear tights. Or maybe because I'm a guy. Go figure ;).
J.G: I feel the same way about men's clothes, sometimes.

Lol. I am trying to imagine your saggy duck-feet tights. Sounds uncomfortable, which is why I don't wear tights if I can help it...they never seem to fit right. But that's true for a lot of clothes, which makes me think that J.G. is right. Whoever is designing them just doesn't have a clue.

I find that as I am an extra long person that buying extra large tends to help. True they can come up to your breast bone but have the advantage of no crotch around the knees. What also annoys me is that if you find a perfect pair the chances are that you will just struggle into them and then you stick a nail into them. They are the most annoying set of clothes.

JG, it did cross my mind.

ElP, should you try it some day? What men's clothing items are so horrific? TIes?

Mother T, I do have to wonder why it is so hard to do.

Boo and Trev, I have a large, though maybe I am a super extra large here.....

there are ALWAYS issues with tights anyway... ALWAYS!

Sad isn't it. My mom has come to visit and brought me tights from the UK where people are a wee bit taller on average. Hope springs eternal.
