I plan to have bare legs at my sons wedding next week as i find tights add more lumps and bumps around my waist. I am wearing a body smoother already, so am actually not sure how tights would work with them (body shaper is leotard style so the tights would have to be worn over them?)
The problem is that I have really bad thread veins on both my shins which look like bruises. Fake tan alone will not cover them up. Does anyone have any quick fix temporary solutions please?

Why not wear hold up stockings instead of tights?

Ok I can't help you for next week (except dermablend perhaps?) but I can really recommend laser treatment for them. I spent £325 last summer on a course of three treatments at a high street specialist skin care salon and have not even needed to use my third session yet as all the veins have gone. It feels a bit like being stung by a wasp and it doesn't cost nothing exactly but has made such a huge difference to how I feel about my legs.

Than,s for replies. I absolutely cannot wear hold-ups, have tried and failed miserably! I am seriously considering laser treatment in time for the summer Leviticus - I had really bad psoriasis until recent treatment so wasn't brace enough to show my legs and didn't realise how bad the veins were!
Will look into Dermablend now...

Dermablend foundation. From boots. Stick and liquid. Stick might be better as you can touch up if needed as it is lipstick sized.

I have the same problem. I use an Estée Lauder product called Double Wear Maximum Cover Camouflage make up for face and body. It works brilliantly, just smooth a little on in a shade that matches your skin tone . Enjoy the wedding !
