Don’t hide your legs! Wear things that are at least at or above the knee, and don’t be afraid of heels. Both of those things will make your legs look longer, and heels make them look leaner! Also, if you’ve ever heard of the store DOTS, they sell jeans and such specifically made for girls with curvier legs, so they fit you and slim you just right :)

i agree with the wearing heels. the way they raise your arch, it tightens your muscles and your legs look leaner. if you can’t wear heels all the time try a mid height wedge, an open toe pair for summer look great with jeans.

embrace your body, and ignore what others say! sometimes flared jeans flatter girls with bigger frames. Also, don’t get jeans with a wash, because they only make you look bigger.

as for dresses, wear what you like! dont worry about what others think, if you wear it with confidence, you will look 10 times better than you already do!

yep with the suggestions of the above the knee and heels, they are the way to make legs look very long!

i think you are all right about the heels.
But, heels build up some muscles on the leg part right?
you know, with all the walking and stuffs?

yeah walking in heels can build up muscle, but i can replace any fat that’s there, at least that’s what’s happened to me over time

Black leggings are amazingly slimming and wear over the knee boots!

I have big butt, esp. for being short/skinny. I tend to wear skirts and tights a lot. However, you have to embrace it because it’s part of YOU!

I have really muscle-ly calves and wide ankles and I wear leggings and tights a lot and if i’m going to get my legs out then i wear heels and use fake tan on my legs to slim them.

A-line skirts will also make your legs look slimmer as will pencil skirts. Try to focus detail on your top half to divert people’s attention away from your legs and don’t ever wear shoes with ankle straps. Nude shoes with bare legs will make your legs look like they go on forever, and hidden platforms in shoes will also make you look like you have longer legs.

Use fake tan on your legs (don’t forget to use it on your feet too) and then dust highlighter down your shinbone to make them looked streamlined.

If you can’t do any of this then just try one thing that’s guaranteed to work: Smile and shrug off the teasing. Show them that you’re happy with your body and nobody else will care about the size of your legs.

well,i have chicken legs and walking in heels really built up my muscles. I also discovered, that when I roll my legs a bit higher than my ankle, they look much longer and slimmer… :-)

Just be confident!
But black on the bottom will slim you and just draw attention to your other assets if it makes you more comfortable.

In my experience, men loooove big-legged women. I disagree about ankle straps, they can look great on curvy legs. I agree that above the knee skirts (and shorts) are the way to go, especially at your height!
