    its a perspective thing plus the fact that your legs do thin down to your ankles anyway. most women are actually thinner than they think they are.

    who cares how you "see" them, they are your legs and I'm sure they are lovely....

    Its not always how u look at them but how u want to see them!!!!!!
    Sum people are convinced they look fat wen there is nothing wrong with them! i believe its purely physcological wat u see in the mirror and in real life evry1 is better than how they look in the mirror! <IMG SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    Thank god for that because my legs look like tree trunks and the rest of me resembles a baby elephant!!! Think may just have to get rid of mirror and draw thin picture of myself to put in its place!!!

    its how ya see it from different angles.
    like one day i could look down at my penis (and im sure loads of males get this) and it looks smaller than it actually is. next day i look down but from the left slightly or something and it looks quite bigger <IMG SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    could be like because your legs are attached to you, ya look down and see only the width...not the length. i mean like, if you got legs that are short and measure say 11 inches in diameter, theyll look a bit chubby (or normal, im not sure but anyways...) but if your legs are LONG and 11 inches in diameter, they would probably look like you were sitting on a pair of those sticks people grow tomato plants up <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">
    so, when you look down as i said you dont see the whole length...if you look in a mirror however, it is easy to see the length of your legs in comparison to the width. (my mate says she looks down at her legs and sees thunder thighs, but when she looks in a mirror or when she asks me for an opnion she knows that if her legs were any skinnier it would look ridiculous coz shes quite a tall young lady <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">)

    plus i think its something like "mirrors are only 90% accurate" or something (although as its come from me i think that maybe its to give us ugly people new hope <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> )

    anyways, what you sittin round on a computor for? go show off those sexy legs <IMG SRC="wink.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    Shops also tilt the mirrors forward a little bit so it 'slims' the person down! <IMG SRC="eek.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">
