White jeans. More specifically white skinny jeans. What is the secret?

Ok so I wear a size 2.  Every time I try on white skinny jeans my legs look like encases sausages.  I do have athletic/muscular legs because I run 8 to 10 miles every day.   I see other people wear them and they look good...people who are larger than me.  So what gives....is there some sort of white jean secret that I don't know about?

It is in your head and you look fine. There is no way that anyone who is size two has legs that look like sausauges.

Are your legs short compared to the rest of your body?  I am 5'7" and a size 4/6 and leggings and skinny jeans look terrible on me.  My inseam is 28!  My MIL is quite large and they look good on her but her legs are much longer in proportion to the rest of her body.

 Hmmm....I'm not sure.  I will go measure.  I'm 5' 6" and usually wear regular length.  Heading off to find the measuring tape

Mine look fine. But I think it depends on the brands certain brands make mine look funny too. (Regardless of color)

 You might be on to something here.  I just measured and my inseam is 31.

My DD is 5'6" and looks super in skinny jeans but she has really long legs (it is so not fair).  I think the lighter colors and patterns make shorter legs look chunkier.
