My body - being bow legged

Well if I could change one thing about my body I would change the fact that I'm bow legged. I would change this because I'm really skinny and my legs look ridiculous their all bent and stuff. So when I'm wearing a skirt I feel so uncomfortable.

It doesn't make me feel all that pretty and it really hurts, I mean all these people come to you and say well '' True beauty comes from the inside you don't have to worry about that well certain things make others fell a certain way.

fashion styles

If you are skinny, increase your diet but keep it healthy.
Do lots of calf exercises and watch your posture as the way you sit or stand could make your legs worse.

Wear pretty trousers and tops and dress it up with a necklace or pretty earrings. Look at the French who have great simple styles without being a fashion victim.
Enjoy life. Find activities/hobbies/interests instead of thinking of your legs.

I am bow legged and double jointed in my knees.
by: Megan

i have bow legs too. and its worst because im double jointed. so my legs bend way back and there is a huge gap betweens my legs. alot of people find it creepy and tell me to fix my legs. or they hit it when it looks like it so i stop putting my legs in the position. but god made us this way. you just need to accept yourself and other people will. thats how i get through it.
be proud of your unique trait god has given you :)

confidence
by: A

I have bow legs too, it made me lose my confidence in wearing what i want to wear e.g shorts, skirts, litle dresses..e.t.c. sometimes i even cry, asking myself 'why me? i just want normal legs'. People sometimes look at me, maybe it is because i am very very skinny with bow legs. but as time is going on i am learning to deal with it and put my head up high because there is nothing you can do about it and you have just got to accept it.How can you expect people to accept it if you cant accept it yourself.
