There are some denominations of Christianity that require women to wear skirts or dresses, but a denomination is not the same thing as an entire religion. Islamic women usua…lly must wear a long robe that is skirt-like, as well as a scarf over their heads. Pentecostal/Apostolic women also wear long skirts. If you are wondering why Pentecostal women do this, check out Deuteronomy 22:5, which reads: The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so [are] abomination unto the LORD thy God. Pentecostals believe that pants are meant for men, and therefore women should not wear them.
Until the 1880's, women wore crotchless pantaloons underwear (weird but true). This made it easier for them to use the restroom whenever necessary. In the days before indoor p…lumbing, "chamber pots" were often used by ladies. Chamber pots are basically large containers with a wide opening which could be used instead of going to an outhouse or latrine. It would have been much easier for a hoop skirted woman to bend over a chamber pot than to try fitting into an outhouse, not to mention the chore of trying to sit down in an outhouse without getting dirty. Chamber pots were placed on the floor since it would have been difficult to lift the skirts high enough to keep them from getting soiled otherwise. Poor and working women who might have had cause to use outhouses (such as those living on homesteads) usually had to wear more practical working dresses without hoops anyway. Women wearing hoops rarely had the problem of trying to actually sit on a toilet since, by the time indoor plumbing became popular, styles had changed.
If you are a christian and yout read the bible, it says: the woman shall not wear that pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do… so are abomination unto the LORD thy God. ---- The short, easy, and correct answer is "because they want to." The verse cited above is Deuteronomy 22:5. It doesn't answer the question of why women wear skirts; it only suggests a reason why Christian men shouldn't wear skirts (kilts don't count, I guess) given that women do wear skirts. Deuteronomy is in the Old Testament. We have three legitimate options regarding the OT. 1: embrace it in its entirety (stoning, cutting off hands, etc). 2: embrace Christ in place of the OT (Romans 10:4, Galatians 3:24-25, and clearly in John 14:6). 3: rewrite the OT so that we can fully embrace it without burdening ourselves with the obviously unacceptable parts. Selectively reading the OT to support certain viewpoints (the Westboro Church's "God hates gays" rhetoric, for example) is not only morally bankrupt and ethically despicable, but it's also a slippery slope. Nobody who claims to be a child of God, and believes that God himself inspired the Bible, has the authority to say "This chapter/verse is key, and that one is not." So where is the line to be drawn, between what is required and what is not? If you believe in the divine inspiration of the Bible, and that Christ was the son of God, then you regard the OT as a history lesson but you don't let it run your life. You live and breathe the New Testament, because it's clear in the text of the Bible that the NT takes precedence over the OT, and that in fact the law of the OT does not bind us following the arrival of Christ. If you're holding people accountable for parts of the OT, but not all of it, then you're misreading your Bible. Stop worrying about rules, and just focus on Him... and getting the beam out of your own eye (Luke 6:42). Have a nice day.
It depends. If you are a professional in any medical institution and you position allows you wear dresses or skirt suits, then YES! (as well as closed toe shoes, bu…t that's another post) Come to think of it, any female professional in a skirt/dress looks more pulled together at work with a clean lined pair of hose on: a lawyer, a flight attendent, waitress in nicer restaurants, sales reps, and so on. Also, It looks rediculous to show your legs without hose or tights when it is cold outside! You wouldn't wear shorts, would you?! If you dare to bare in colder climates, put on hose or tights or even leggings ...depending onyour age. Times when hose aren't a must? Summer or anytime it is hot outside. In casual situations: dinner out with friends, a movie, a date, dancing, shopping ...you get the idea. Hose can be updated for today's style without looking like your mother or an 80s throw back. If you have a dark suit on, try a pair of hose with just a hint of black and a black leg line up the back. Hose with a muted design in them can be fun. Black or brown tights can be a great match with a fun dress. There are lots of options. Hope this is helpful to someone! It depends.

Women wear short skirts to show off their skinny legs.
Women wear skirts to cover themselves from the waist downwards . Cheerleaders whose costumes include skirts have them for style, since the skirt doesn't really do anything …practical.
Well it's pretty simple just pull your skirt down and make sure your under wear is off at the same time so you don't pee your pants, but what kind of question is this? lo…l ;) pull it up or pull it down :)
My wife's wears them is because she loves them and so do I, she really likes the attn she gets when she is out shopping or a girls night out she really loves to show her legs …off, and I also enjoy it she is always in heels and nylons
Orthodox Jewish women will only wear dresses or skirts, as a form of modesty.
To answer your question, 1) Baptist women, or just women in general don't have to wear skirts all the time because it is forced. It is a choice. 2) Not all baptist women wear …skirts only. Most women that wear skirts only that are baptist are fundamental baptist. Being skirts only is a choice, and a conviction. Me, my sisters and mother are all skirts, because the bible clearly says in Deuteronomy 22:5 (KJV) - "The women shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man. Neither shall a man put on a women's garment: for all that do so are an abomination to God." I think God clearly states what women should, and should NOT wear. That is why some women wear skirts only. Because pants on women were always, until the 20th century (caused by rebellion) considered unthinkable and scandulous. Pants truly are a man's garment.
Girl wear skirts because it may seem cute to them!!! Guy wear skirts because..... they are probably gay. GO DALLAS COWBOYS!!!! IMMA BE A CHEERLEADER FOR THEM IN COLLEGE!!!…

yes, because in the bible it says women should not wear a man's appearll!
Women wear slacks for everyday function, dresses are part of their formal attire.
They believe that pants are men's clothing and it states in Deuteronomy 22:5 The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's g…arment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God. Addendum: Not all Pentacostal congregations are the same, and this is not a denominational dogma.
