Hi ladies, I haven't been diagnosed with anything yet, but my knees are painful, unstable and swollen at the backs. When I'm just at home then pyjamas or tracky bottoms are fine. But what do you wear if you go out and you want to look nice? Yesterday had my first outing for weeks, only to Wyevale for a coffee, but it was nice to be out in the world! Really struggled with clothes. I'm a fairly trendy 46 year old and my wardrobe mainly consists of skinny jeans and leggings. Skinny jeans , even stretchy ones, hurt my knees, leggings provide a degree of support but feel too restrictive, and im not sure if the support element is good or not. In the end resorted to my one pair of baggy white linen trousers that you can only wear once and then they need washing and ironing! Think I may need to do some online clothes shopping. What works for you?
