Discomfort for Fashion

This poll is aimed at women to see what level of discomfort and impracticality they will endure with their clothes. In earlier days there was much more focus on clothes the wearer couldn't take off herself and/or restricted her in all sorts of ways, because all that showed she could afford help for everything. Nowadays fashion is mostly a lot more practical, but especially women still make sacrifices for their appearance.

This poll is about the regular wardrobe, so don't include wedding attire, dress-up costumes, etc. Also exclude things like rain or work gear, unless they are worn specifically as a fashion statement.
Men are allowed to answer, but most will find the questions not applicable to them.
