“Did that unexpected breeze just blow my dress up a bit to reveal my perfect legs? Gee, I was so busy BEING FIERCE that I hardly noticed!”
There’s no shame in channeling your inner-Beyonce. I do it all the time. However, it’s also good to realize what you ACTUALLY look like when it gets windy out. Allow me to provide an example for you:
What we have here is a case of The Flash Cycle, which Jockey® defines as trying to keep covered when an unexpected breeze picks up in The Solutionary™. Unfortunately, when your hair and your dress fly up at the same time, you may notice one before the other and put your efforts there. I was working hard on controlling the hair situation, but in so doing, I gave everyone a bit of a show. AWKWARD.
I have actually walked several blocks in downtown Chattanooga while on a date, clutching to the hem of my dress because I thought once was enough for publicly flashing folks that evening. Also AWKWARD.
There is a solution to the Flash Cycle, though, and it does not involve swearing off skirts and dresses or learning how to control the forces of nature. All you need is the Jockey Skimmies® Slipshort to add to your ensemble. Skimmies are these super lightweight, super soft articles of clothing that feel and function like a slip, but wear like a pair of shorts. They can help keep your bum covered during a gust of wind, and they also offer some great anti-static defense. Basically, they provide a dose of confidence so you can rock that outfit the way you know you can. And if you are like me, you are forever looking flawless, anyway.
I think the Original Microfiber Skimmies are a must-have for every girl’s wardrobe. That’s what I’m wearing in the photo above. They come in longer or shorter styles, and in several different colors.
I also really like the Anti-static Skimmies for those skirts and dresses that like to cling to your body, even when the wind isn’t gusting. I’ve noticed that problem with the dress I’m wearing below, so these will pair nicely together and keep me from fussing with my dress too much.
And if you spend time at the gym, like to go for walks for exercise, or just enjoy the occasional yoga class, the Wicking Skimmies are a fantastic option because they are designed to help prevent chafing and keep you comfortable and dry throughout your workout.
Basically, what I’m saying is that whatever your “skirty” situation might be, Jockey Skimmies have an answer by way of The Solutionary™. Check it out to determine which pair might help you out the most. Or, let’s just be honest: you might want to get them all.
Jockey Skimmies® retail for $20-$22 and they fit LIKE A DREAM. Please do not assume that these fit snugly and will be just one more layer to make you even more uncomfortable. Heck no, my friends. They feel amazing. Pinky promise!
Have you ever had an awkward fashion moment that could be solved by The Solutionary? And am I the only one who had convinced herself that she looked not at all awkward when pulling her dresses back down over her underwear after a wind gust? 😉
