Hey! That’s another thing mine did- that forward tilt. I forget why “they” said it was necessary, but it took me several months after not wearing them to stop feeling like I was starting to fall. I thought it was just weird-little-me that had that happen to.
I have an aversion to nylons, so I got cotton/poly (still not ideal material) knee-highs, which were barely high enough for the orths. And since they were so high up my leg, removal for driving was impractical. (I rarely wear skirts/dresses/culottes/gauchos…) I wasn’t given the option of other types of torture devices, either.

I’m inspired to try running again!
