I don't think it looks good even on the model to be honest. No-ones legs are too fat for leggings! And if you feel that they are -unless you are disproportionately big on the bottom half, wouldn't you feel exposed on top? Seconding the elephant bladder comment!
I'd go for something similar but in separates. I've got a pair of thick jersey wide leg culotte things which are really comfortable and look great. I bought them abroad a few years ago but I'm sure are plenty available now. ASOS is probably your friend here.
In my head I'm still svelte so thanks for bringing me back down to earth . I do like it but may look for separates - far more practical as you've mentioned. As for leggings, I'm afraid I'm probably in the minority as I think they look OK on really slim, young students but I don't like them on me.
