    Please consider wearing a slip! I sat behind a woman in church last week, every time we got up to sing she had to (not very) discreetly dig a out "wedgie" - and she was a very slim person, too. I've seen it worse in larger people.

    Later in the parking lot it was breezy and several women might as well have not been wearing a skirt at all since we could all see every part of their anatomy from waist to ankle where the fabric blew through their legs.

    Yuck. Even though you still have to deal with static cling, it's slips for me with each and every dress! Makes them hang so much better.

    Pin a small stainless safety pin in the seam allowance near your hem. Problem solved

    I read somewhere to pin a safety pin to a seam on your skirt, and it would take care of static.

    Sorry, just saw the last post!

    We use to use a metal coat hanger to rub the underside of our skirts. But try to find a metal coat hanger these days.
