I need help with my manky legs

After years of working in retail so on my feet all day, and two big babies my legs are just awful. Both legs have varicose veins and I hate them so always wears jeans in public.
It's my sons communion next month and I have bought a dress that I love. What can I do to cover my legs? I'm doing some sunbed sessions to try and get rid of the general greyness (I sound like a right catch confused) and will prob use a bit of fake tan as well.
Are there any tights that are good but don't look like support tights?

I find M&S 10 denier tights in illusion, or natural tan, comfortable, flattering and a million miles from support tights.

Obviously, I dont know how pronounced your VV are, but the above should do the trick on their own, and certainly will with a little fake tan strategically applied.

Good luck.x

M&S Illusion work for me. They are v light and not at all fake tannish, bso just look like my legs but better.

Thanks so much to both of you, I will get a couple of pairs. Nice to know there's a solution.
I only have one that's bulgy, the rest are mainly flat or horrible thread veins
