I've been wearing my Crystal Fox tail for about a month now and it feels weird the few times I leave the house for an AV gig and I'm NOT wearing it. Same with my collar. Still looking to either get or make a yarn tail though, real fur tails wear out pretty quick :(

I have a tail--a pretty handsome gray-white-black fox tail, if I may say so--which is part of a partial fursuit. I'm getting a second partial fursuit soon, which comes with an all-black tail. Would I wear the tail in public? No, unless I've got the entire partial on. Closest thing I did to wearing that in public was to walk out of a convention hotel and across a large parking lot.

I'm looking at getting my own tail in the near future, and one question I've had is which is better: A tail with a loop that slides onto your belt, or a tail that comes attached to a waistband? Is there any appreciable difference between the two?

I would go for detachable belt ones if you can. Being able to move the tail around while you're out and about so you don't end up sitting on it or getting it tugged and wrecked is a huuuuge plus. Also makes it easier to take on an off (I made mine so I can just unbutton and untie it to take it off)

I have a purple fox tail with white tailtip, ordered from anthrowear.com   I've never worn it in public, but have always wanted to.

Those are the two I wear. Maybe the fact that I'm living in Toronto but I hardly get bothered. You'll get odd looks and kids occasionally asking why you're wearing it but I don't get hassled by people.

Then again I usually look either emotionless, or angry, so people steer clear hahaha.

I wish I had the confidence to wear my tail in public. But I'm a lone furry with social anxiety and a very long past of being bullied. Going out by myself with a tail on I just don't have the courage to. My friend says she doesn't mind if I do. Well around where I live anyway and after dark... However she just bought a fox ears hood and paws from me without even being a Furry  :)
