    For a bit of added modesty for shorter skirts or dresses, and also because my legs aren't all that nice. I have a lot of lumps and bumps and redness and discolouration on my legs, so it looks nicer to me when I'm wearing tights and you can't see that.

    I love the way they make me feel. I feel sexier and it feels better if you have super soft ones.If it's hot you can go thinner to 40 or 60. For me there is nothing sexier than a girl in tights. I think they add extra elegance and create a better silhouette with dresses or with shorts. I couldn't go bare legged- because I wouldn't be comfortable, i'd be too worried if i hadn't shaved my legs properly and I have bumps that can be hidden better with solid black ones . xDD

    I love tights and all the difference types that are available. I can't remember the last time I went out without wearing any. A major part of my wardrobe and image.

    As much as i usually insult the style of women for their choices (wearing shorts instead of skirts, wearing shorts instead of bikini bottms on the holiday/beach, wearing onsies, elasticated jeans, baggy leggins) i actually do find tight with a skirt to be quite feminine and attractive.

    Do you know that moment when it 's warm enough to wear a skirt or shorts but there's still that lingering cool breeze that makes you a bit uuncomfortable (especially when wearing a short skirt)?

    Yeah. That's why I wear tights.
    (Plus I think they make my legs look nicer/neater).

    I often wear black tights because of school, but I love different colours - I used to wear red and purple when I was younger and I hated them, but I only fully appreciate them now.

    In winter I wear tights for work underneath my trousers. It's unforgiving weather here at night.

    I just can't figure out whether to wear them under/over my boxers though...

    It smoothes out the lumps and bumps -- I'm pretty self-conscious about my knees as they're covered in scars so thin tights are good at hiding them.

    Also, I hate wearing bare feet in shoes as I feel it's unhygienic, so tights provide an extra layer (albeit a thin one).

    You wear woman's tights? That's kinky. And under boxers definitely!

    How would you explain wearing them to a potential girlfriend and how do you think one would respond?

    If she had a problem with it then there are many more non-wearing tights men she can find!

    there are many many reasons
    -you might not be very happy about how your legs look
    -you might have forgot to shave your legs
    -you might want to cover up more leg that your short skirt doesn't
    -you might think tights add a certain something's to your look
    -again like forgetting to shave you might think your legs are too pale and too lazy to fake tan

    yep loads of reasons
