    But back to topic here ....

    My legs used to be clamped together, but a not so helpful side effect of getting my spasms under control, is that my legs are looser. I basically only wear skirts that cover my knees. I usually go for the fuller ones, but get all twisted while transferring. I will have to re-think shorter straight ones, I bet they will help with the twisting issue.

If you see a picture of me in a short skirt, or dress, you can be sure my legs are belted together under it.

    At work I avoid anything that's more than an inch or two above my knee when seated. At that point, or when I wear something shorter outside of work, I wear a pair of yoga shorts underneath. It doesn't add any "heft" to the look and provides piece of mind for those windy days...

    Live a little; when wearing a skirt, go commando. That's how I roll.

    Had not thought of this. Windy days are my nemisis. I love above knee skirts but with my gait and then holding on to the cane, I don't have another hand to lasso a skirt. It sometimes ends up above my head.

    I just gave several of my skirts away because of that reason. I tend to leave them in the closet.

    I especially like the lighter feeling skirts as a heavier fabric defeats the purpose of wearing a skirt to be cool in the summer...but heavier fabric tends to blow up and show the privies LOL

    Gees fashion fo paux (spelling?) LOL

    On one very windy day I tried keeping a purse on my lap, but when that didn't work well enough I resorted to gluing my skirt to my pantyhose in the ladies' room. (Had to cut up/throw out the pantyhose later.) If I knew I'd be in that situation again, I'd rig up some kind of hem on the inside of the skirt to clip on to a hidden strap.

    The pencil skirt is a good solution too. It never gets caught in the wind or wheels and it's very svelte.
