  • I have the same issue. I hate my legs and I never wear short or dresses either. It's embarrassing. I heard theres surgery for it but I can't afford it and I'm only 24. I hate my genes! There genetic!

  • I know it really sucks...I have been getting a few of them myself. There isnt a whole lot you can do to get rid of the ones you've already got unless you were to have surgery...I forget what it is called but they can insert some kind of dye into the veins to make the appearance of them go away.
    Whenever you get the chance, sit with your feet UP. Maybe get the Mystic spray tan done or buy a self tanner, that may help hide some of them or at least tone it down a bit.
    But first and foremost...no matter what your legs look like...you have to learn to accept them as part of you, and be okay with it..who cares what anyone else thinks. Its hot, wear your shorts and skirts..I would...and DO! lol.
    I've even stopped caring about the cellulite that has been forming on my thighs..I just don't give a damn anymore. This is my body and I love it! So, I've got woman issues, who cares,LOL. Good Luck, hun..hang in there.

  • My dh's aunt had them so bad, she had some of them removed. She was in her mid-30;s when she had it done.
