If you’re shy about baring your legs or even plain ashamed of them, you’re not alone. More and more girls are opting for leggings and trousers instead of wearing gorgeous skirts and dresses. There are so many reasons why we choose to hide our pins. So why not put your worries aside? Here are just a few of the ways you can kick those legs back into action and back into a dress:
If you sit all day or stand all day, your poor legs are likely to swell and ache. They need to move about to get the circulation pumping. And when you’ve had (or about to have) kids, you might be risking varicose or thread veins by not doing anything about them. Swimming is the easiest way to get them moving. But did you know that simply exfoliating them can help the circulation and give the skin a healthy, silky glow at the same time? Slough away the tiredness of your legs. Finish with a light moisturizer.
OK, so this is probably the main reason we’re covering up our legs, right? So get rid of the stuff! Razors are quick and easy, but they’re not best for long-lasting results or healthy skin. Try a sugar wax for a natural and long-term result that leaves you soft and silky smooth in just half an hour. Contrary to popular belief, shaving is more likely to cause ingrown hairs than waxing. Other options include creams, laser reduction, and epilating. Wax might sting for a moment but doesn’t hurt at all after that. When the skin is rested, why not use a moisturizing tanner to give those legs the glow they deserve?
Do you have to tone your legs to get them out? No! Just be you. Your legs are beautifully shaped just as they are. Heels can help create the impression of a toned calf and longer leg. But what really shows off your gorgeous shape is the cut of your skirt or dress. There are several shapes of skirt and several lengths too. If you have very thin legs, you might prefer a pencil skirt that comes to the knee. Curvier legs look amazing in A-lines and longer lengths.
Dresses and Skirts
Your body shape might determine the length or type of skirt that suits you best. That doesn’t mean there aren’t any exceptions to those ‘rules’ though. Why not click here to browse a dress boutique online to get an idea of all the different options available to you? Don’t forget, you can always pick a top that is bright or shapely to attract all the focus if you’re still worried about your legs.
Shorts and Hotpants?
OK, so we’re not teenagers anymore. Does that mean we can’t wear skorts, shorts, and hotpants? You can wear whatever you feel comfortable in. Clothing isn’t age-restricted, after all. However, there might be some occasions when a little length is more appropriate! If you’re daring to bare, why not go all-out though? Love your legs, and let them be free.
