When you put your socks on do you scrunch you socks,put a cuff or pull them straight up when you wear them?Is there a reason why or you just like it?I put a tiny cuff so that the elastic doesnt dig in my ankle leaving an indent.:)

I wear socks that are called sports socks. They go on just past the ankle and then I fold them down. I don't know why I do this, it is just something I have done forever. Here's a good one for you - When you put your socks on, do you put the right one or the left one on first. I have read somewhere, I don't remember where, that 95% of people put their left one on first. Same with your shoes. So I try to remember to pay attention and I find this is true of me. I do usually put on the left one first, and with my shoes, the same thing. I wonder if this has to do with being right handed.

I Love big slouchy socks. If they dont slouch, I wont wear them. I like the idea about the tiny cuff. I hate that mark on my ankle!

Hi,i hate that crease also and mostly because anything with an elastic in it leaves marks on me and then itches like crazy after removing them. Peanutjar:)

I don't wear socks very often cause I wear lots of sandals, but when I do wear socks, I usually just scrunch the socks down. I'm not really sure why I wear them that way. I guess it just feels the most comfortable to me, and then I never worry about if they're messed up, lol.

I usually scrunch my socks then put a little cuff on it when putting them on cause it is easier this way. Besides when Im doing this I get to do it faster instead of just pulling it up... ^_^

It depends on the socks and the pants I'm wearing. Right now I have leggings under my jeans and I'm pretty sure my socks are pulled up straight. If I was only wearing my jeans then I'd cuff them to keep them on. See I rarely wear women's socks because men's socks have a higher cotton content and I like that. I used to buy boys' socks because they fit better but it just confused everyone and s/o would wonder around complaining about his socks being tight...this is the man who wore my maternity sweatpants for half a day complaining that I stretched "his" sweatpants out. LOL

I am a cuffer too. And for the same reason. Why I do this, I don't know. Habit I guess. I started doing that in high school.I hate the indent, it starts to itch like crazy. Funny. I'll have to think about other things I do like that.
