I HATE pantyhose and avoid them like the plague.

I will be visiting Saudi Arabia in the near future and already have my abaya. It comes with a headscarf and is very, very black. Hijab not necessary, apparently, except by special request. Abaya is very comfortable and means no need to take suits: Hooray!
Meadbh, at the risk of putting my foot in my mouth, I think of you as a fairly strong feminist. I'd be very interested in how you perceive the woman you meet in Saudi Arabia and how you feel about the clothing. I am trying to reconcile my westernized views on women's rights with the fact that it is a cultural thing for them to be covered up, but I'd be very interested in your take on it when you return.

And I love the idea of going commando underneath the abaya, just to feel all rebellious!
