...when you are wearing a skirt - moreso, a short or knee length one - do you lift it up to go the the toilet, or pull it down like you would with pants?

I seem to mix it up, but in a daze have stood next to the toilet thinking...what do I do here...mmmm...

So you all pull up your skirt and then drop your undies down? I just drop my skirt and undies at the same time rather then one going up one going down..

All my skirts have zippers, not elastic so I would have to unzip if I wanted to pull it down... So it's lift skirt pull down undies  biggrin.gif

I will usually lift a long skirt too, especially in public toilets where the floor is questionable, I don't want the skirt pooling on the floor.

always, always lift.

most of my skirts have a fitted waist with zip and button closure so dropping down would require undoing both - much easier to lift and no worries about the hem touching the toilet floor.

Last time I wore a skirt was probably the early 90s but I'm pretty sure I lifted.

Pull undies down with skirt at the same time. Faster, especially when toddler is about to destroy the house.

Usually lift, but with some pencil skirts I have to unzip and drop.  Never let it touch the floor though!

I'm a lifter. I dont like the skirt pooling on the floor.  Actually I dont like the hem of my pants pooling on the floor either, but there is not much you can do about that unless it involves some contortions.

Have never even considered pulling down a skirt!
