I've never been the one to wear really short garments, most of my them are right OTK. The idea of giving a pair of shorts, skirt or dress the power of not allowing me to move as I please is unthinkable. I need articles of clothing that I can cross my legs or raise my hands in without the fear of showing too much skin. In the fitting room I usually do things such as bending over and raising my hand to give the garment a test and if I feel too exposed, the garment stays. Right "Over The Knee" is what works for me. Do you have a rule or standard for yourself ? If you do, what is it ?

I've always had the same fear about showing to much! But I usually wear yoga shorts underneath to feel more confident about short garments... :)

I know what you mean. Lorena!
I do think that in the winter, a pair of tights and especially now the OTK boots help with anything that feels a tad short!!

I like your rule! :) It's important to be able to move and enjoy clothes and not worry about pulling down hems all day! :) I've always liked the fingertip rule (needs to be as long or longer than your fingers when your hands are by your side) but being petite there's honestly not too much that's short on me, most things are to long haha!

Lorena, that is the cutest outfit! I love it on you. Now I know the name for what I'm doing all the time. I'm tall, so it is a must.

You have a good point, I hate it when I feel self conscious about the length of what I'm wearing, and feeling confident in your clothes is the only way to look good in them.
