For those who favour leggings under tunics and short dresses - should they be the long version to the ankle or shorter. I have reasonable but short legs and have both kinds but don't know which one is better.

I wear the cropped ones just below the knee I find them more flattering that the full lenthg

Depends on the shape/length of your legs, the occasion, the rest of the outfit, the shoes, the weather, and whether or not you have shaved your legs smile

I like them either full length or just below the knee - think that the mid-calf ones can be a bit unkind (tho not to everyone).

I think you can do either.

The longer length is perhaps slightly smarter; maybe more flattering if you want to elongate your legs. The shorter a little more sporty?

I tend to wear the longer but being 5'9 it can be hard to find any that reach my ankles.

Up to you whichever you prefer I reckon.

Thank you for all your replies. I particularly like MadreInglese crossed out comments!!smile I'm on holiday in the UK next week so bearing in mind the weather I better take both sorts.
