I don't mind showing my knees or seeing other people's knees - what I do mind is clothes that show bum cheeks. I went shopping a couple of weeks ago and found myself in a queue. I looked down and what did I see staring back at me? The arse cheeks of the woman standing in front of me! PUT THEM AWAY!
I used to have nice knees,but since the arthritis and other ailments have caused them to swell and look less appealing,I guess I have worn clothes which tend to cover them.It has not been a particularly conscious thing,just something which has occurred! I just wear what I feel comfortable in,and if this has coincided with my knees being covered,then that is fine by me!!!
My knees are okay but obviously...a 68 year olds! I wear what I like but just feel I look better with skirts/dresses just below the knee, any longer and I think it is ageing and any shorter I feel like 'mutton dressed as lamb'. As far as shorts go these are only for home now.
I'm not keen on how my knees look especially as I'm carrying too much weight these days so mostly they're covered. However, put me in central Australia in 40 degree plus heat and I'll be in shorts for sure.
it wouldn't bother me to wear clothes above my knees but it sure might bother some other people.
Once you are over 50 (probably more like over 40) you should cover your knees to maybe just below the knee. Enough eyesores out there to cope with.
I didn't realise some people were bothered about showing their knees.I don't have a problem showing my knees but sometimes I only shave below the knee so in these times I will wear clothes that cover my knees.
No - my legs are pretty good for a 70 year old so I'm told. However, I do like to make sure I have shaved my legs before wearing a short skirt - just a personal thing. I have no problem with others not shaving their legs.
LOL, that's the way, Rice Paper. I said something similar to a lady I was talking to the other day. We were having a whinge about the size of our noses. She told me that, when she was younger, she wanted to have a nose job. I said, "We can't see them, so they shouldn't really bother us!".
