    Long Pants at WDW in September!!!!

    Ok so I have a pretty severe heart disorder, and am now suppose to wear compression stockings under my clothes at all time! Its to keep my blood closer to my heart in hopes that my heart won't have to work as hard pumping.

    Does anyone know of any light weight or comfortable long pants I could wear to the parks that are somewhat fashionable?are jeans out of the question? The compression stockings look like Really thick pantyhose and there's no way I could wear them with shorts

    Thank for your help!

    Have you thought about a long maxi dress? That may cover the stockings but still be cool. The weather is going to be really hot, so I would not wear jeans. I think you'll over heat too quickly.

    Agree about jeans, it's really humid in Sept so they won't be comfortable.
    Also what about long tops with leggings.... You probably could get some cute tops!

    Definitely no jeans! How about a loose pair of lightweight cargo pants? That's what I do.

    I think leggings would be hot too. I like the long dress or skirt idea. If its long, you won't have to worry about it blowing up on rides either.

    I know you said the shorts is a no go but people actually wear legging, tights, etc with short shorts. They pair it with some combat boots and or all star chucks or some other trendy shoe. i see at WDW all the time. i really like that look.

    In any case the long summer dresses might be the best way to go.

    Have a magical time!

    What about going to a sports store and checking out womens golf appearal? Nike has some great lightweight fabrics that are also slightly water repellant and anti-wrinkle, and yet they breathe very well.

    I have one outfit that I brought on this trip that's like that (for restaurants where I needed to be "classier" like Jiko), and I love them. So much so that next visit I think I'm going to drop most of the cargos and replace them with these.

    I might try the leggings I like that idea I'll ask my cardiologist if I can leave the compression stockings at home. If they
    Were really tight they might work the same as the stockings. Hopefully.
    The stockings look like pantyhose and IMO panty hose is super visible In the sun so I wouldn't want my any part of my legs showing. Maybe I'll get an xs leggings and squeeze into them

    Do you have compression stockings in pantyhose form? Because those would work great! I know sears had some some great panty hose for circulation ( very firm).

    What about a light pair of linen trousers? Super-cool in the parks yet they cover everything.
    There's a great big beautiful tomorrow
    Just a dream away!
