Ladies – are you sitting comfortably?

The tall person noticed that I have adopted a new way of sitting and asked me what had prompted me to do this.

I think it is nice when he notices new things about me.

Anyway, as the tall person brought up the subject I shall share Bassa’s Tips for Ladies on the Proper Way to Sit.

I have noticed that many ladies cross their legs at the knee when they sit. This might display their lovely long legs to their best advantage but crossing one’s legs at the knees can cut off circulation and over time can result in spider veins.

Spider veins? Yes. “Spider veins” are red or blue short jagged lines that look like tree branches or spider webs. The tall person told me that veins have valves that prevent blood from flowing backwards as it moves up the legs. If this valve is weakened due to lack of circulation the blood collects back in the vein and results in “spider veins”.

Unless you are a spider you probably won’t want “spider veins”. So how can we ladies avoid spider legs?

Simple. Don’t cross your legs at the knees, cross them at the ankle.

Tall person took a picture of me demonstrating the correct technique.

  1. Oh Bassa – you are such a beautiful girl! I love this photo of you. And thanks for the tips…I really don’t want spider veins. 🙂

    I wanted to tell you and the Tall Person about this amazing photographer who seems to be traveling in your neck of the woods right now. I’m not sure how close this is to you, but he mentions Tbilisi and the Caucasus Mountains so I thought of you. See the link to the post below as well as the links at the end of the post to related articles. The photos are beautiful.

  2. Wow sweet Bassa you amaze us with all the great tips you give us…you are just so full of information. Mumsy says she knows where to go now to get all her questions answered. Hugs and nose kisses

  3. Wow Bassa! Thanks for the tip! My mom are so afraid of having “Spider Veins” and she always wears special socks while she is working to get good blood circulation! I’ll definitely tell mom not to cross legs at the knees!!! 🙂
