    It’s a question of context.  Unless you’re in a Superhero outfit, wearing your underwear outside your tights seems foolish.  But if you’re a CD, we all have something to hide “down there”, and every little bit helps.

    I like to wear LuLaRoe leggings but I’m a firm believer that leggings are not pants (though that is flexing recently… Lol). Anyway, I want to cover my crotch but I ALSO want to be able to wear my shorty shorts. As a plus size woman (GG, 33 years old) I have quite a bit of chub rub so the shorts alone don’t work so I like to wear them over my bright and fun leggings.

     

    That being said, I do get comments about it from other women. They say things like “your style is so cute” or “I love your fun prints” which of course probably means they think I look a little odd. But I do not care. 🙂

    I am sure that at least one of you have pointed out Superman.  You going to tell him off?  🙂  I must admit that i am terrible confused here.  Modelling, shorts over bare legs, nylons or various & sundry leggings is “part of the day!” when doing shoots, QUITE OFTEN mind you!  Yet so very many are against this?  Hmm…   I am ‘befuddled’.  One of my “hottest” (and most requested outfits is for dance).  I’m in all black, long black hair fall, hair volumized, “ITTY BITTY” shiny leather shorts, metallic black leggings (that still allow flesh colours to bleed through as you ‘stretch’ the right ways), OTK boots …that’s far enough to get my drift.  It’s one of the most watched Vids in the ‘trans’ world and was performed in 1991 (Sept).  (So, because this site is for CD’ers, I’d sooner think most haven’t viewed it …since it’s of no interest why would you right)?  hahaha……

    I’m going to try to figure out WHY so many are vehemently against what I’ve been ‘learned’ is AOK (but 100’s of thousands of models (and honestly we ARE ‘fashion conscious’ but there’s NO accounting for taste I suppose).  Guess I’ll just NOT wear the shorts and let the ladies “p*ss & moan” that I’m not DRESSED ….because it is EASY TO SEE that I can’t win with nor without, so why bother trying to appease “the others” (you will slowly lose your sanity on THAT danged path).

    *My neighbors feel that MY SMARTEST MOVE IN LIFE (they are Christians, and FULLY know I am Goth & “trans”) …they have expressed to me that GOD damned me before birth, (umm, yeah, RIGHT!), and my only chance at HEAVEN is to have my breasts removed (because they are “demonic or cancerous” and will lead others to ‘damnation’ also!   –>and admit myself to a VA Domiciliary for daily “mental activities designed to make “trannies” normal.  They actually make you WELCOME death.

    Want to come home and have THAT BS across the road from you?  (Well, 3 miles closer to town is ‘across the road’ out here)!  hahaha….  THAT is ‘the level of Heat’ when you are in my shoes.  Out & About is ‘eventless’ 99.9% of the time.  I easily and always pass for ‘femme’ because I AM femme (as far as I am concerned …especially now).  Femininity INCREASES with a person’s age (I’m talking males).  For women?  It actually decreases as their hormonal levels plummet and never recover.  Don’t take my word for it though.  MAYO CLINIC has several such studies, each and all of them reflecting what I just stated.

      Aimee,

      I never thought about performers (and yes, I did mention superheros in general) in my post.

      And I want to apologize on behalf of your “Christian” neighbors for the flak they give you.  I’m firmly in that camp, myself, and we are not all like that.  The few predators who CD give us all a bad rap.

      Hi Aimee. (Love the name by the way)

      I don’t think that people here is vehemently against the look. Some of us just don’t think it is something that we would wear when going out mainstream. Also, there is a difference which somebody has already pointed out to wearing dressy shorts and hosiery than cut-off jeans shorts with say, fishnets.

      And more importantly, everybody has their own style. The fact that some are for it and some are not is purely for conversation.

        After retirement from the military I JUMPED on the opportunity to change my name (and you may as long as it’s not for illegal purposes), thus “Aimee” was born.  *Amy is my CTS-V Caddy btw.  hahah…  “Amy, What You Gonna Do?”  I Think, I Could Stay With You – For A While Maybe Longer If I Do.”  YEAH!

        For the record, in several shoots (and just running around), I LOVED wearing my leather shorts (black/shiny and tight), with fishnets and pumps or OTK’s  …”cheap?”  Nope.  Sexy.  Period.  If it isn’t, why in the world am I always inundated with “proposals” for “things?”  🙂  (By both men & women no less).  So …it’s not as ‘taboo’ as many may think?  I dunno.  To each their own.

        There’s a place for about everything ….and I tend to “walk on the wild side” more often than not.  Forgive me?

          Nothing to forgive, but you know that. If you like it and you get inundated with proposals, good for you. Different people has different styles and different taste. Not a big deal.

    I like the style. But it’s an odd look, kinda like young men wearing leggings under shorts.

    I’m not a big fan of the look and, as Tiffany said, it’s not very practical here in South Florida because of the heat and humidity. Plus, if I’m going to take the time and effort to shave my legs, I want them to be seen. They are definitely my most feminine part.

    It also seems to be an outdated style here in the States. I saw a lot of it back in the 80’s, but not so much lately. The only time I really see that look is when I visit my daughters up north and see runners wearing tights under shorts because it’s cold outside.

    But, just because I don’t like the look, doesn’t mean you can’t like it. To each her own.

    I might be in the minority but from a style that one would wear in public, I cringe at the thought of wearing shorts over tights.  I dislike the look.   It’s just a fashion faux pas.  If you’re doing it for some sort of sporting activity, I guess I could see that.   But to go in that “style” to go shopping, to the coffee shop, to whatever….ugh!!!

    I don’t see a problem with it if you look good and feel good. I’m from the UK and hot pants worn over american tan tights were all the rage in the ’70s. Nowadays its more denim shorts and black opaque tights in the UK and it is a younger girl thing. I loved wearing shorts and tights when I was younger.

      Also an expat from the UK, shorts over tights has always been quite normal but I agree, its certainly a younger look.

    To be honest I’ve thought about trying out the whole ‘tights/leggings with (tight bootie) shorts’ at the gym a couple of times but haven’t had the guts to follow through. Perhaps soon 😊

    A very interesting thread here Fiona.I just voted firmly against.But all of a sudden I recall when I first dressed en femme privately at the age of twelve I wore my football shorts over my tights.Mostly because I didn’t have the courage to seek out my mum’s skirts and try them on thinking they wouldn’t fit me.However I felt great wearing those shorts over the tights as it made me look like a girl wearing hot pants.My ultimate fantasy then was to be a girl in hot pants and knee length white boots.If I was younger I would do it these fayd  but not approoriate for me at my age.

    I have to take part here, again………….never to be left out

    1. There are dressy shorts-or better–short-shorts——–and hose is a must, black velvet ladies shorts worn with a jacket or bolero, with a sheer cami or low cut blouse ( where you can give some peek-away with your bra with dressy heels or wedges make a wonderful look…………. barely black is my favorite with black velvet stretchy short shorts………..with absolutely perfect no bulge look………hi-waisted even better !!

     

    and

    2. Gym shorts like Hooter’s girls, or denim cut-offs, are a no-no with hose or tights….looks cheep and tacky………..

    For the Dress up look, YES———for the everyday, gonna walk around look—NO WAY !!!

    Hmmm…. It kinda falls in with the socks and sandals category, it may be comfortable, but not everyone likes how it looks. If it’s a younger girl look, and you’re older, proberly not a good idea – it may attract unwanted attention.

    Superman does! My alter ego had a friend who used to wear rugby shorts over his Ron Hiltons ( I think that’s what they were called – they were nylon sports leggings that climbers wore in the ’80’s – blue with a red stripe down the side and instep loops).   He got lots of amused attention.  And his friends pi**ed themselves laughing at him.

    I guess fashions change – but I will never forget the Superman impersonation. I have been haunted by that image for years.    Not a good look.  Not for me. No matter how fashionable, not ever.

    It’s an awesome and sexy look. Before I went fully fem I began wearing shorts with tan pantyhose. Then I went to short girls shorts for a more leggy look. The final phase was adding platform wedges.

    I thought this was one of the best ways to show off legs. My role model and inspiration for this was Daisy Duke. I loved the look then and I love it now.

    So! up to now, very mixed views. Here in the u.k. it seems mainly a young girls fashion trend, very popular in the summer months. Obviously, because of my younger Femme age, i like to keep up with the trends but also i do actually like the fashion as it is relatively simplistic. I mean, what could be easier than wearing a pair of low denier tights under a pair of denim shorts?

    My wife, as i said, loathes the fashion, but she has a much older way of dressing, we both are literally like chalk and cheese in that respect.

    Keep the votes coming, this is so interesting! thankyou for your votes so far 🙂

    Hello Fiona and all,

    I’m of the impression that what the Brits call tights, we in the states would call hose…please correct me if I’m wrong…?

    I have these two GG friends, one (19) who knows about Sammy and another (42) who doesn’t…yet.  One evening I encountered the one, (19) at the filling station wearing a pair of short denim shorts over a pair of sheer black hose.  The other (42) I regularly see wearing denim cut-offs over fishnet stockings.  Different?  Sure, but it’s their style and they both rock it.  Not something I would do personally but more power to ya if you do 😁

    Women’s fashions I thought were strange the first time I saw them:

    • Shorts over hose
    • Shorts with hooded sweatshirt & cowboy boots — thought this one was dumb as hell first time I saw it
    • Buzz cut on front quarter of one side of the head…wha??
    • Hair dyed fluorescent colors
    • Gaucho pants — remember those??

    The weirder women get the easier they make it for us gals and sincerely, I hope they keep it up 😊

    Yes, I don’t see the point of it. Who can understand this fashion move or wearing bra on outside???  I guess it is up to us males to show the females how to dress.

    Do any of you girls wear your bra on the outside of your clothes??? I like to sunbath in panties and bra as opposed to bikini! Why……I don’t really know….dropped on head as baby guess.

    When I was running marathons, I’d wear tights on those practice runs when the temperature was starting to drop (I live in northern Canada).  My wife didn’t like the look of the tights on their own so she insisted I wear shorts over the tights.  Wasn’t a big deal.  Now I imagine there are some tights that would look terrible with some types of shorts but that’s something for the fashion police to determine.  Don’t have too many fashion police in my neck of the woods and the moose and bear you meet on the trail really don’t care.  Hugs, Krista.

    It is not the most stupid thing I have heard of. But it may be a style faux pas. And one that very few cis females would commit.

    On one side, shorts are usually worn because of an sporting activity or just because the weather is warm. Wearing under either condition would be kind of defeating the purpose of wearing shorts in the first place.

    Having said that, style is relative. And you also have real life style and “I wear this because I like it and I’m staying home so who cares”. So, unless you are going out and plan of attending an event where the paparazzi are going to be all over, shouldn’t be a big deal.

    Probably won’t get to do that too much in Louisiana, because of the 1000% humidity at all times…optional clothing gets sacrificed from May thru October. That being said I wore em over tights a time or two in the winter, because I wanted to.
