One common complaint of the mini was the annoyance of having to constantly be mindful of you were sitting. Unlike pants and long dresses, sitting with legs akimbo could result in a glorious or embarrassing eyeful (depending on your perspective). Thus, high school yearbooks and family albums from the early seventies are full to the brim with girls with legs crossed and strategically placed hands for cover. I'm sure it became almost reflexive for the women, but still something to be cognizant of nonetheless.
So, in a constant effort to milk the Mini Skirt Monday for all it's worth, this post shall hereby be devoted to The Crossing of the Legs. Enjoy.
