Need brutally honest opinions - my legs...

I am after a break of 20 years, taking up tennis again and loving it. My DH bought me a lovely tennis skirt which I adore however I then realised I would need to show my legs to wear it (duh).

I was teased at school for my overly muscular legs as I did ballet for 15 years and genetically they are just very chunky.

Can I honestly get away with this skirt? If you saw me on the court what would you think? I don't want to be the one everyone is pointing to and commenting on the chunkiness.

Gulp, pic on profile...

Ive also just taken tennis back up after 20 years break and am loving it.

fgs-stop bloody worrying about what other people think!

Your legs look great and not in the slightest bit chunky! Wear your skirt with pride!

LadyintheRadiator Tue 25-Jun-13 13:14:22

Your legs are great. Really.

DoctorAnge Tue 25-Jun-13 13:14:37

I was bullied about them, called man-legs. You don't have to say it to make me feel better - I don't want to look silly in this skirt.

LulaPalooza Tue 25-Jun-13 13:14:38

Your legs are fab. Shapely and lovely. I wish mine looked like that! I have tree trunks

gymboywalton Tue 25-Jun-13 13:15:31

i'll bet you a million quid that whoever bullied you was jealous of them

Your legs look great, and gym boy is right, you look really good in that skirt. Enjoy playing tennis again. You've got me thinking about having lessons after a 30 year break!

Can't see pictures, but unless you gave up tennis when you were about 5, you are at least 30 something and you need to GET OVER THIS. My circuits class is full of 40 year olds who are working really hard to get muscular legs because the alternative is lardy, cellulite-ridden, wobbly legs. You are going to be wearing sports clothes to do sport in, in that context, muscly legs are not only acceptable but to be admired.

If it will ruin your day, wear sporting Capri pants under the dress the first time, then be too hot after vigorous play and decide to ditch them!

Blimey OP I would love to have your legs - you have a great pair of pins! Not a hint of chunkiness there.

Teenage girls can be so cruel.

DoctorAnge Tue 25-Jun-13 13:17:13

thank you all so much for your opinions. still hard to believe you but why would you lie?

wow they really did a number on me angry 20 years I have had a complex for sad

higgle Tue 25-Jun-13 13:18:18

Your legs look lovely, nicer than mine sad

Pandsbear Tue 25-Jun-13 13:18:36

They are great. Really don't worry. Enjoy the tennis!

Ok I was expecting to see chunky legs! Yours are not chunky! I think you need to review your self image.....

Your legs are great btw!
