How warm or hot does the weather need to be before wearing Daisy Duke or booty shorts is comfortable and not too cool?

Asked by Hypocrisy_Central (21060 points ) 2 months ago

Recently spring has finally decided to show up, the temps are getting to where they should be; low to mid 90s. I am seeing the resurgence of the Daisy Dukes and booty shorts, though a few unveiled them once the temps hit the low 80s. What is the temperature that is optimum for wearing booty shorts and Daisy Dukes comfortably between the times of 9am to 9pm?

I walk the shores of a huge lake every day. I’ve been seeing long sleeve sweaters with bikini bottoms at the volleyball courts for a week now. It’s topping out at 60 degrees. Direct sunshine feels great, but those girls are nuts.

In Alaska, 70 degrees is good for me.

I see girls here in England wearing them when the temperature is barely 60F. Temperatures of 90+ happen here about once every ten years. I don’t wear shorts until it’s at least 75, and you wouldn’t catch me wearing Daisy Dukes at any temperature.

I wear them as long as it’s above 70 degrees. I went to bachelorette party on Saturday and, even though I knew we’d be out late and the low was around 55, I still wore short jean shorts and rocked them country style. It was chilly, but I survived. It was in the mid-80’s earlier in the day, though.

Low to mid 90’s? In April? Where do you live, Hades? I thought SC was hot – the highest it’s gotten here is around 86.

Daisy Dukes are never comfortable.

@Juels I disagree. They don’t bother me at all. Short shorts, a t-shirt, and flip-flops are the definition of comfort to me. As long as I don’t feel fat that day. :)

My thighs stick together if I expose them :-)

C’mon, this is the brave New World, we don’t hold to those silly gender statuses, don’r be afraid to floss your gams to the ladies, some might even give you a wolf whistle, maybe an extra pint at the pub. ~~ :-)

I concur, you need to give that woman’s number to women you meet, if you know her, she can rock the country Daisy Duke well.

Thin layer of aloe, petroleum jelly, or natural colored talc helps in that respect, until the squats, stair steppers and lunges start to take affect ;-\

The woman in the picture is me.

I am not slathering my thighs with vasoline. Gnats would stick to it and I would have all new issues and people speculating. Does anybody really do that?
Even when I’m in decent shape I don’t have the thigh gap. I’m a curvy woman. Size 4–6 isn’t big…
I look fine in daisy dukes. I don’t look fine lifting one leg like I’m about to pee just to separate my thighs when I’m sweaty :-)

@GloPro I’m about the same size, no thigh gap for me either (don’t want one). I don’t have a problem with my thighs rubbing together, but I have a friend who has a major problem with this, which she calls “chub rub.” She swears by the Monistat anti-chafing gel. No wet/sticky feeling, dries nicely, and reduces friction. I concur about staying away from slicking your body down with Vaseline. :)

But does it taste ok? ;-)

livelaughlove21's avatar

@GloPro Ha, couldn’t tell ya. I have used it as a makeup primer, though. Pretty awesome product.

@Hypocrisy_Central If I were to expose my thighs in any Manchester pub I’d be more likely to get tossed out than given free beer. I could probably get away with it during LGBT-Pride weekend but that’s about it.

(As gunny Heartman to pvt. Jocker) No s**** ?!? I have to say I am quite impressed, never knew you had it going on like that, and it is well known, I am not easy to impress. I would say definitely ”wolf whistle worthy”, (the male equivalent of “sponge worthy”), two snaps and a belly rub. Mr. Laughlove better kick himself in the nards he mess that up. 8—◦

There is a difference in a light coat or sheen than slathering it. LOL Improvised it is better than nothing.

@Hypocrisy_Central Good to know I’m the male equivalent of “sponge worthy.” Haha!

No one got my movie reference? “The woman in the picture is me.” Come on, Titanic?

….anyone?

Yetanotheruser's avatar

OK, we’re going down with that one!

GloPro's avatar

@Leanne1986 saw Titanic 4 times in the Theatre. I bet she would have been all over it. Me? The movie is like 3 hours long. I missed half of it daydreaming.

livelaughlove21's avatar

I was 8 when Titanic was released. It was actually one of the first movies I ever saw in theaters. I only saw it once at the movies, though…followed by 394839 times at home.

@livelaughlove21 I was thinking “The Stranger in the photo is me.”
