I've got pretty thick legs which I'm not proud of so I usually wear leggings all summer. I feel it makes them look better since they are black and it's hard to see the curves. Is this true or am I deluding myself?
I have thick muscular legs too and I love leggings, because they are comfortable and usually fit better on me than pants. They do make feet look thinner if they are dark, but they don't hide curves. Though I also love flowy skater skirts and dresses and rompers and loose shorts. They make legs look slim too if you wear them with heels and they are more practical in the summer heat
Deluding yourself, as did I for years. Black doesn't cover up anything and wearing leggings all summer is going to be uncomfortable. Trust me, no one is going to pay attention to your legs if you wear shorts/dress but everyone will when you stand out wearing black leggings in summer.
