Oh wow, the poor unsuspecting pinup's skirt caught in the wind is one of those meme's that's older than the word meme itself. I think we've all been at the center of one of those accidental windy city peep shows before ;)
If you're looking to keep your unmentionables unseen, I'd just go with the tight slip option. You could also go with pencil skirt's once in a while, but I know that sometimes you're just in the mood to wear a twirly skirt.
Hemming a hidden weight's an interesting idea though. Has anyone here tried that before?
If its a swing style skirt I wear a petticoat underneath so if it does blow a little my petticoat shows and not my undies :)
Just out of curiosity where did you find your petticoats Jennifer? I've been thinking of picking up one or two for my lindy hop classes :)
If you do go with the weights sewed into the hems let me know how that works out, I'm really curious now :)
you can always wear shorts underneath. I want to try the weighted hem idea, I've heard that the Queen does it before and if its good enough for her, its good enough for me ;)
Let them fly sweetie!! Isn'tthat why we wear pretty undies and stockings? Let them be seen!!! (Tongue in cheek comment of course).
Yeah I think I'm totally with you Steph on this one.
Although that might just be my inner exhibitionist talking :)
It won't really help your skirts from blowing up but preventing anyone from seeing anything you could wear tap pants or pettipants. I wear a combination of slip shorts (I picked those up on ebay for ~7 bucks) and i usually wear a petticoat if the skirt is full enough. You can find a multitude of colors in petticoats on ebay from around 44 bucks and some sellers don't charge shipping which I always feel makes it worth it.
