I never thought I'd say this but... I miss tights. My legs just look better covered up in black stretchy material. When they say black is slimming I think it holds true for black tights. They make my short stubby legs look longer and leaner. Now that I have to expose my pale bruised legs to the world I'm wondering why I was so anxious to stop covering them up?

I am not a fan of tanning and I after I turned 28 and started freaking out about aging badly I started wearing spf 95 to prevent sun damage so at this point I don't have much hope on getting a tan. Any suggestions for self tanners that won't go orange or streaky? I've worn one brand before but in pictures I looked like an oompa loompa. I guess the other option is to just rock the pale stumpy legs, but I think I'll keep that as a last resort.
