so I can't wear shorts because of chunky thighs, can't wear cut offs because of cankles, what do I wear on a warm day??
Don't like skirts as day wear (too much hassle with blowing up in the breeze and ds swinging off them) I have been wearing cut offs even though I know my cankles look worse with them as am too hot in trousers.
you haven't seen them recently. They look like hockey players' legs ok, I have 2 pairs linen trousers BUT by the end of a morning they are all baggy and crumply and for some reason ds' snot seems to really show up on them. I am hard to please I know
I have big legs although I am very fit so they are, at least toned and tanned. In my opinion most people really don't spend a lot of time considering my legs so I wear whatever I feel like within the constraints of decency.
In Spain I wear shorts all the time and in the UK I wear 3/4 trousers or a wetsuit. Wear what feels comfy and just get on with having a nice time.
