Hah, I know what you mean. I have "chicken legs" too.Jeans and pants almost everyday. I have never gotten over being terrorized and teased about my chicken legs. I have no calf muscles, just 2 sticks and knobby knees which I hate even more. Jeans cover up and flatter them so much better. I RARELY where skirts shorter than floor length. Only at the beach will I go a little shorter.
