it was chilly this morning, so i tossed on tights under my dress and declared myself ready to face monday. now i have a sizeable hole and run on the outside of my leg. i would take them off, but i may or may not have failed to shave my legs for the last week (what do you want from me? FI has been away on a fishing trip!)
what’s worse in a professional office, ragamuffin tights or yeti legs??
*sigh* i think this is the grown up equivalent of when your mom used to warn you to wear clean underwear in case you got into an accident…

I think the torn tights are more noticable than a bit of extra hair personally.

@juliette.eliza: Ditto. I would take them off. No one notices your hairy legs except you, but everyone notices a huge run.

@bostongirl27: Agree with PPs. Take them off. I never notice leg hair.

A little clear nail polish will stop the run. I’ve done that plenty of times!

I would keep the tights on, but I have ridiculously dark, thick leg hair that I’m pretty sure you could see from a mile away.

I always notice leg hair. I would go to a quickie mart on your break/lunch and get some cheapy ravors and shave in the bathroom.

i decided to take them off… they were grey and my alabaster leg shining through was very noticeable… plus my hair is on the light side, and as a bonus, all the hair will keep me warm in spite of the fact that my office is 64 degrees…

I’ve been there before… I dashed into the washroom with a stapler, turned the tights inside out, a few quick staples, and in the absence of clear nailpolish, a little white glue from the supply closet. I felt like MacGuyver!

Tights are worse, no one will notice the hair. Try to stay away from people. LOL

This happens to me all the time. I end up at CVS. …Now I keep spare tights in my desk!
I think you made a good call, though. I mean, if people are staring that closely to see little hairs, well, that’s their problem!

@metalbride: hahaha that is pretty impressive! i do have a glue stick here… now i am thinking of ways i can creatively keep them on. i really dislike the furry look!

If you don’t have any clear nail polish like KatyElle said to stop the stockings from running, take them off. Yeti legs are not that obvious as a big hole in your tights. 😀

I’ve had this happen many times with the same hair situation underneath… I just pretend I didn’t notice the run if anyone points it out to me. Hide those Yeti legs!

@MissBoPeep: Me too 🙁 I feel like coarse sandpaper after about 12 hours, and don’t look much better 🙁 I tell SO all the time that if I ever win the lottery, I’m having lazer from my upper lip to my toes. LOL
