Hey. The guys I know seem to know a fair amount about women's hose. Don't know why.
DanceMentor makes a good point, though, tights last longer and can take a beating.
The other thing I do is wear pants about half the time for practice -- I got some of those stretchy jazz pants that fit pretty tight. Add a leotard, and you can see everything your whole body is doing without having to wear a skirt. The other half of the time, I stick with skirts so I can practice, holding the skirt, swishing it, and showing it off (especially for smooth).
well although I'd loooooove to wear pants to work..I can't. only on casual fridays I'm going to go get some tights though. I wish I didn't have to wear pantyhose but we are required to...plus my legs blind everyone so suntan hoisery is a GOOD thing :lol:
But here's a funny story. I went to a studio outing with some friends a while ago, and saw a pretty lady dancing a rumba in the middle of the floor. She looked great, so I watched. I really loved her twirly skirt.
Then she did a spin. Ew! She was wearing a THONG and no hose that I could see. Poor thing didn't even realize that she was putting on a show.
I don't think she knew how twirly her skirt really was.
Ever since then, even if I'm wearing a tight skirt, I put a pair of dance trunks underneath. Better safe than sorry.
And while we're on the topic of women's undies ... How do I put this delicately? Make sure your foundation garments are VERY SECURE before you start dancing. There's nothing worse than being in the middle of a dance and feeling things start to slip! :lol:
I didnt mean panties. I meant bras. Especially the strapless ones, sometimes slip off in the middle of the action. I once saw a woman at a comp whose bra was AROUND HER WAIST by the end of one particular dance. What a scream! I thought it was really funny. Guess she didn't though. :lol: :lol:
