Traveling skirted

Postby Wesley » Tue Jun 12, 2018 10:49 am

I'm planning to wear a kilted skirt when I fly out on a business trip in a couple weeks. It will be my most public exposure ever. I'm looking forward to the experience, as it seems like a good way to break through a personal barrier.

Courage, conviction, nerve, verve, dash, panache, guts, nuts, balls, gall, élan, stones, whatever. Get some and get skirted.

I've never had any problems at airport security, and I've flown skirted several times.
Keep on skirting,

Last year the only trousers I went with was a pair of white Levis that were a bit tight around the waist [0]. During the all-inclusive holiday I put on a pound or two which meant that I couldn't wear the jeans. MOH offered me a pair of her fuchsia pink legging that I declined [1]. So instead I wore, much to the chagrin of my family, a sarong, folded lengthwise, so it looked much like a wrap-around knee length skirt. It was a welcome experience since I was actually reasonably comfortable [2], as much as anyone can be, in the cramped seating in cattle class. We were "inspected" three times coming out of Egypt and the reaction of the guard tasked with "patting me down" was amusing as his hands didn't know where to go and still be legal. All but once I was just waved through.

[0] Deliberately so that they would be tighter on exit from Egypt and maybe unwearable.
[1] Sometimes I wish that I had accepted as I would have looked, I hope, more ridiculous than if I was wearing a skirt.
[2] No tightness in the crotch area at all and because of the extra material in the sarong I could still sit with my legs apart and be decent.
I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.

I travelled by rail and air to the Balearic Isles last year in a
lightweight olive green cotton utility kilt and seemed to attract no notice at all -- and the passage through airport security in both directions was unusually quick and easy. But that was a holiday trip to a holiday destination.

The problem with wearing a skirt on a business trip is
going to be that unless it yields spectacularly good results, unsympathetic bosses may blame any shortcomings on the skirt and the wearer's attitude. Even if you work for a skirt-tolerant employer, there could be difficulties if you have to deal with business partners who are less so.

Same for me. The business world does not really want someone making a spectacle and drawing attention to themselves, possibly detracting. If it was office based, and the boss doesn't mind, then something conservative in a black or navy knee length is fine. Customer-facing roles could put off potential customers who might think your business is 'a joke'. Is that right? I don't think so, but sometimes it's about making things also easy for yourself and making a living.

The only "problem" I had flying skirted, was having a pacemaker, I declined to go through the scanner. So I got a pat down instead. I think the guy doing it was a bit put off by my skirt, he seemed somewhat embarrassed.
