It’s finally happened! Spring has come to Montreal! Between now and when it becomes so hot that we hate the outdoors again, everybody will be donning looser, shorter, and gauzier clothing to welcome the summertime. Unfortunately, old man winter may have left a prickly reminder of his stay upon my ankle-to-calf area. I’m talking leg hair, and lots of it. I know I’ve got to get rid of it. I’ll have to make an appointment for a wax, and, after grinning through a painful half hour – why do they always have to laugh at you if you make small pain noises? – I’ll leave refreshed and ready to take on the world. In the meantime, though, I have some great tricks for hiding my not-yet-ready-for-spring legs from the world.
1 Maxi dresses to the rescue!
You know how they say a man invented panty hose, because they’re awful? Well I feel confident that a woman invented Maxi dresses. Not only are they super comfortable and simple, you look dressed up but you feel like you are in your pajamas, but they go all the way down so we don’ts got to show our legs if we don’t want to.
2 Did you know that long silk pants are in this year?
Oh that’s right, the seventies have nothing on us and our leg hair. These long silk pants will keep you feeling both cool and sophisticated, while conveniently keeping our little secret a secret.
3 Linen pants, yes please!
You really can’t go wrong with a nice pair of linen pants in the summer. It’s a look that says “that woman knows what she wants, and she knows how to get it.” Nobody needs to know that what you want is to put off your waxing appointment for just a few more days.
4 Consider the schoolgirl outfit for sexytime
I don’t always like to dress up for getting down, but when I do it’s because I’m trying to hide unsightly leg hair under a pair of knee socks.
5 Slather myself head to toe in mud and tell my fiance that I’m hiding from a predator
Really only as a last resort.
