Re: Hi everyone

Pete you are fast becoming an ambassador for skirt wearing to the office. (Where office working still exists.) I was amazed and impressed to read your account. The word bravery springs to mind. Me? I just can't do it, I kind of mince about at home with the odd 'try on' just to prove to myself I'm st...

Re: Why do mens kilts have to look so masculine

Hillaryskirt, I must confess that I don't recall seeing this thread before. Oddly, the answer lies in its very title. I would advocate great caution in asking that question. The Kilt Police would certainly take an unhealthy interest in the answer. Steve. Thanks, Steve. I've only just seen this, 5 m...

Re: what to wear underneath?

I was under the impression that on this Forum it was 'streng verboten' to discuss undies. The operational interpretation of that is that it is specifically verboten to discuss that with which we gird our loins. Other than that, if the intent is to alter the external appearance or behaviour of a gar...

Re: Adding a lining to a skirt

I think that part of the reason for adding a trim to the hem of the slip is to provide a finished edge that looks decorative. The only alternatives being to turn up the hem and sew it ( not really viable due to the soft, silky or nylon material that slips are made from ) or to serge the hem which i...

Re: Public safety in skirting 2021

Interesting discussion and such a shame that level of threat exists, or can exist, when we are indulging in an innocent pleasure that is for many of us a necessary lifestyle choice. Vital for our mental and spiritual health and to live a true life. An honest life. Over here in the UK I guess the thr...

Re: Why do mens kilts have to look so masculine

The other way to go is with a 'cargo' or 'utility' skirt. I have a few of these - they look like cargo shorts, but unbifurcated - one in black and a couple in 'army green', with the usual tapes/zips/studs styling. There is nothing intrinsically 'feminine' in those, and they are much lighter and eas...

Re: Skirts worn with a corset

I would love to try a corset to give more dramatic shape. I’d wear it with an A line skirt.

Re: I wear skirts and kilts because

Radical. Actually it really is that statement.
Wear with a nice fitted (tailored) skirt /- my fav.

Re: Postive Wife Support

Nice bit of compromise being big enough to let the wife have the skirt.
Truth is we may love skirts but women love them in a really intensive way - perhaps understandable to a trans woman but not always to a cis Male.

Re: Coffee at the Supermarket

Reading this post made me think. :wink: When shopping at the supermarket skirted, I usually shop reasonably quickly then soon go on my way. Recently, feeling brave, I made a point of going for a coffee in the Costa Coffee shop in the supermarket first before walking around the store to do my shoppi...

Re: Winter skirt

I alternate between this one and a similar black version. I went shopping last night with the denim skirt and tights, no heels just loafers. Wonderful. The black sounds nice. Four inches below the knee is my favourite - I hope yr wife has come round to it! :o PS Like the idea of tights too - what d...
