But this modern generation I say they will never listen. See Preiti here she always sits like this. Never listens to me when I tell her it is not ladylike to sit cross legged Having said that I wonder why ladies should not sit cross legged. Do you sit cross legged?

I know I've read articles on why sitting cross legged is not good for our health . . . but I assume that's not what the nuns were talking about . I do find myself sitting cross legged a lot .

I think Preiti has no issues when it comes to what the nuns had in mind

This is common sense why ladies should avoid sitting cross legged.

If it is common sense then why should nuns tell them? (lol)

I guess I have no common sense then.. Would the nuns find it better if I sat with my legs wide apart how men sit?

I do if I am wearing pants, I do not if I am wearing a dress or a skirt. The reason? Put yourself in front of a woman with a knee long skirt crossing her legs and you will understand.

I certainly understand mini skirts demand that legs are not crossed but while at school that question never arose and so I always wondered

@allknowing We did not wear mini skirts at school, we wore knee long skirts, but when a girl crosses her legs you see more than you think when you are in face of that girl.

@LadyDuck Modesty is just not about not crossing legs but there could be other situations where girls could be careless.

Articles say that sitting cross legged limits blood flow so people is is discouraged. Although, I do sit cross legged sometimes, I usually just do a deep squat instead.

We all do it but it should not be for long spells.

Never really thought about it. I was reminded of the bearded British comedian, Kenny Everett - and who is mentioned in this BBC article on the subject? Wow!
Should you avoid sitting on a chair with your legs crossed? Claudia Hammond investigates.

Thanks for the link. I think staying in position for long periods can affect one adversely and not necessarily only by crossing legs.

I think that ladies were afraid that they would show more than they should

I've been told it's not good to set cross-legged. It's to do with posture or circulation or something as far as I know.

What in the world?!? I have never heard this before. I always thought it very lady like to cross your legs. I haven't done it since I was a teen as I don't want spider veins in my legs.
