Fuck! After a hard days Xmas shopping, I headed home to get ready for my work night. Took socks off at around 3.30pm and my ankles are STILL an elasticy indentation mess. I could weep as need to leave at 6pm.

Cocktail dress of course and dark/thick tights wouldn't look right with it. Have 7dr tights which make them look worse. No other option of something else to wear - I recently lost weight and this dress is just perfect, older dresses are too big. Ankles aren't even very fat. I'm so pissed off! Any hints or tips? I've had a warm bath and massaged them with bio oil. I'm going to look a right stupid twat at my vair posh works do :-(

Red lipstick, big will look at your ankles! Have fun and well done on your weight loss!

Sod it.

Wear the frock and the nice tights. Who actually looks at peoples feet anyway?

If anyone does, fuck 'em!

Have fun smile

I'm sure you'll look lovely. Do people really notice things like this?

Whip egg whites up, put on indentations and leave for a few minutes then wash off. My friend told me about this a month or ago. Apparently it's the protein in the egg whites. It worked.

Thank you for posting this, i've just taken off my socks ahead of tonight's do!

No-one will notice and they'll be gone in a hour from now. I say this as someone who frets about every last tiny detail when I'm going out. It's fine.

Have a good night!

Have you tried a moisturiser over them?

Blooming pain in the arse sock marks are

Whitewhine Sat 13-Dec-14 17:19:30

Frantically whipping up so me egg whites. My husband is looking at me as if I have 2 heads...

Rub ice cubes on them?

Apparently this helps carpet dents recover when furniture has been moved... fgrin

Whitewhine Sat 13-Dec-14 17:21:29

Lol Damsel. My ice is currently being used in a medicinal gin fblush

Really? Who looks at peoples ankles? I wouldn't have noticed and I doubt anyone else would.

Have a great night anyway wine

ghostyslovesheep Sat 13-Dec-14 17:26:14

Oh bugger ...(off out in 2 hours ...whips off boots and socks)

Moln Sat 13-Dec-14 17:28:15

I was at my work do last night and can confirm I looked at nobody's ankles!!

PastaOutFromTheXmasGin Sat 13-Dec-14 17:28:48

What kind of socks do you wear that leave marks? I'm a size 20 with calves that are too big to get boots over and don't get sock marks. I just wear plain M&S ankle socks

Whitewhine Sat 13-Dec-14 17:29:42

Bunbaker, I wouldn't normally bother too much but I have the most amazing pair of glittery shoes which I suspect will be admired by my colleagues. We all love our shoes!

Meringuey ankles are a go-go. Will report back soon fsmile

Crap, i've got my work do in 90 mins, i have to get ready at work and I finish at 6. I'm going to have sock marks too.

Vycount Sat 13-Dec-14 17:31:22

I'm watching with interest.
Whitewhine - in my case substantial socks worn with work boots. The indentations last for hours!

LumpenproletariatAndProud Sat 13-Dec-14 17:34:44

This is brilliant, egg whites!!

Hope it works OP.

Have you got pile cream? Isnt thats supposed to have an effect on skin (that isn't in your bum hole) I know people use in under their eyes (although Ive no idea why).

BigfootFilesHisToesInYourTea Sat 13-Dec-14 17:35:14

If the indentations are lasting hours you're probably dehydrated. Have a few glasses of water!

Whitewhine Sat 13-Dec-14 17:40:34

Cheap Tesco black socks with a half inch elasticacted bit at the top pasta. Think walking round the shops for hours has had an effect on my normally slim ankles!

A few glasses of prosecco and I won't give a hoot. Just want to at least arrive looking half decent.

Fabulous, I could kiss you. The marks are much improved and less noticeable. Right, just need to get the rest of me ready, I need to leave in 20mins!

LumpenproletariatAndProud Sat 13-Dec-14 17:43:15

Oh good no need for bum cream.

Have a good time!

The lights will be dimmed so no one will see your ankles. Just their drinks and your face whilst they talk to you.

Pile cream tightens skin therefore sticking it on under your eyes shrinks eye bags apparently. I had a worse problem with socks after getting fake tanned. Slipped socks back on (nobody told me I should wear flip flops) had lovely white feet/ankles sad

Have noted that egg whites help.

Though what BigfootFilesHisToesInYourTea says about being dehydrated makes a lot of sense.
