What do you wear on your legs with skirts

Discussion of fashion elements and looks that are traditionally considered somewhat "femme" but are presented in a masculine context. This is NOT about transvestism or crossdressing.

I don't know if I've already mentioned this here, but my legs are hairless and I never have had to shave, wax or do anything else to keep them nice and smooth. Must've been from genes inherited from my late mom. As for hosiery, I wear tights exclusively in the winter, usually nothing lower than 60 denier which is fairly tough, I even have 200 denier which is almost indestructible. However, in spring and summer, I go barelegged which I find to be a nicer look for me.
I don't want to LOOK like a woman, I just want to DRESS like a woman.

NZF - My hose run approximately $20.00USD a pair & the waist-high about $40.00USD a pair.
DVT is an abbreviation for Deep Vein Thrombosis which are bloodclots in my legs.
I don't want any of them to 'break-off' and go to my heart or lungs. That could lead to a
PE(pulmonary embolizism) which would kill me.
Take care of your legs and watch your fat intake. Avoid foods that cause plaque buildup
in your veins and arteries.
I've eliminated about 90% of my salt intake. A low sodium diet is really the only way to go.

I've tried tights but found I spent a lot of time hiking them up. Stockings are a lot of faff to put on. If anything I opt for bare unshaven legs with knee high socks. If it's hot no socks and sandals. Sometimes white ankle socks to stop my delicate feet from getting sunburned. As has been said elsewhere, I have no problem with hairy legs it's just a cultural preference for men and women in some parts

I've been able to go from checking Warfirin* blood levels every 2 weeks to every 3 weeks. Soon, hopefully, I'll be able to go to once a month blood testing.

*Warfirin is a blood thinner. I have to be careful when using sharp items as it takes
longer for the bleeding to stop, on this medication.

Warfirin is what I use to control the field mice that seem to get in the house in the colder months.
Very effective too!! Most mouse and rat poisons have Warfirin in them some a lot more that others so be careful when using it..

Yes, I quite often have that sort of problem. I have a few pairs that don't fall down or strangle me. I use various techniques to combat that. Exercise shorts over them, sewn on heavier elastic waistband, or conversion to stockings. My all time favorites are thigh highs or stay ups, but finding good ones at a good price is next to impossible.
