Short boots... short legs....

All experience greatly received...

I am buying some wellies at the moment - am off camping and will wear them on and off all summer (by the look of the weather forecast...)

I am rubbish at making decisions and am torn between two pairs, one with the much nicer print, but shorter length. I wouldn't say that my pins are my strongest point, and wondered whether the shorter wellies will give the illusion of more length, or whether I will look as though my already short legs have been sawn off half way down.

As I'm buying online, this is a crucial point to determine before I hit the button.

Many thanks!

I once read Victoria Beckham caution against anything ending at the widest part of your calf as it will not flatter. Always stuck with me for some reason. So... I guess it the short version will be mid calf on you then maybe stick with knee length. I REALLY like the ones you linked though.
