I posted some pics on post #799, my camera seem to show more skin than I see. I notice some skin through the socks at the widest part of my foot and my calf for the summer weights. I prefer the thicker socks as they seem to stay up better, after a few wears I have to pull up my summer weights when I get to work, I walk a mile and a half to work. I've had heavier weights almost a year and they stay up all day.
I would think the summer weights would dry over night, if you had air movement probably more like half an hour. When I was staying in a motel I'd hang them in front of the fan and they would dry in about 30 minutes and the heavy weights about 1.5 - 2 hours.
You may want to try a couple of weights at this price to see what actually works best for you. The heavier ones seem to retain the stretch and stay up better after some wears, they are my favorites even in summer.
