But I do understand how having skinny legs could be a pain. So that's why I'm writing this article on ways to make your skinny legs look fuller! Every women has at least one-usually more than one-thing about themselves that they dislike or wish to change. While it's not always possible to completely change something about yourself, there are always ways to make something appear different from what it is. I've done all the scoping for you and have a few ways to make your skinny legs look fuller, right here and ready for you to read! If you have straight, thin legs then this article id just for you! Please keep reading!

1 Wear Wide-Leg Jeans

One of the top ways to make your skinny legs look fuller is by making sure you have some great, wide-leg jeans in your closet. You don't need bell-bottoms, but a pair of nicely flared jeans will really enhance your skinny legs and fill them out nicely. Make sure that you choose a pair of wide-leg jeans that doesn't start to flare until they reach your knees. If you pick a pair that starts to flare before it reaches your knee, you could risk making your legs look fat and your jeans look baggy. You certainly don't want that!

2 Avoid Wide-Leg Shorts

This may sound like a contradiction, but if you have skinny legs, you should make sure to avoid wide-leg shorts. While wide-leg jeans will help make your skinny legs look fuller, wide-leg shorts will only make them look like a pair of sticks. You want to find shorts that fit you well, and the shorter you go, the better it will be. You don't need a pair of shorts that could pass for panties, but by showcasing your thighs a little bit more, your legs will look a bit fuller. Your thighs are the biggest part of your leg, so make them the first place the eye is drawn to!

3 Throw on Patterned Tights

Grab yourself some funky patterned tights girl! This is one of the most fun ways to make your skinny legs look fuller! Bright, large patterns attract attention and do a lot to fill up spaces. This is why they say that you should skip wearing brightly patterned clothes if you are petite. Big patterns do a lot to overwhelm small areas! But in this case, that's what we want, right? So wear some bright, loudly patterned tights and you will see the difference right away!

4 Bulk up Your Legs

Have you ever seen a dancer or a runner's legs? They are long, and skinny and straight-yet marvelously built! How do they do that? I'll tell you how-there are certain exercises that help to "bulk up" your legs! And by this, I don't mean bulk as in the hulk. Just enough bulk that your skinny legs look fuller! Here are a few exercises to try when you hit up the gym. Running, cycling, squats and lunges. They will make a tremendous difference, I promise!

5 Buy Some a-Line Skirts

My first piece of advice when it comes to skirts is to always make sure they stop either at the knee, right above the knee, or at the ankles. But when it comes to ways to make your skinny legs look fuller, you should go for A-line skirts that stop mid-calf. By stopping your skirts at the widest, shapeliest part of your calf, you are only revealing what you WANT to be seen. This leaves the "skinny" part of your legs to the imagination, and when people see only the widest part of your leg, they won't know that the rest of your legs are skinny. So give it a try! The same rule applies for capris.

6 Go Light

Dark colors always make something appear smaller and stand out more. That's why they say to wear black if you want to look thinner! If you don't want to draw attention to your legs, and do want to make your skinny legs look fuller, then throw on some light wash jeans. You will be surprised at the huge difference this will make in how full your legs can appear! Just give it a try-even if you don't like lighter jeans. There are many different washes and shades out there, so you're sure to find one you like that works well for you!

7 Be Comfortable

If there's one thing I know about ways to make your skinny legs look fuller, it's that you can't always follow the current trends. You must find something that flatters you! These tips in my article will help you out, but always keep in mind that you want to be comfortable, so look for something that makes you feel good about yourself. If you love your long, skinny legs, don't be afraid to try out "skinny jeans." You will be the envy of every girl who ever wanted mile-long legs!

There are many ways to make your skinny legs look fuller so you can feel more comfortable with your body. The most important thing to keep in mind when it comes to your body is simply that no matter what you like or dislike about yourself, you're beautiful anyway! But there's nothing wrong in looking for ways to feel prettier or sexier, so I do hope this article has given you some great ways to make your skinny legs look fuller! After, all, as women, we have the right to look our best ant any given time. Tell me, though, do you have any other tips and helpful ways to make your skinny legs look fuller?
