According to sources, the thighs are considered a woman’s least favorite/most hated (optimist/pessimist) body part. People claim that it or their thighs prevent them from wearing short dresses, feeling comfortable in shorts and swimsuits, etc. Whoa, whoa, whoa: Wait a minute. “It prevents me from…” No, honey. (or buddy). You prevent yourself. Everyone has potential to have toned thighs, and when you make the decision to sit around all day as opposed to going for walk or hitting the gym, you are ranking television as a priority over your health. (Intervention!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
First, let’s talk about Ways to Fix (yay :)) Your Little Problem.
The easiest things to say would be portion control and exercise. Did you know that if a plate was bigger you’ll feel as though you’ll need to fill it up, even if the contents of a smaller plate would’ve had you satisfied?
But I know it would be more helpful to everyone if I included specific exercises to do. To keep myself toned and fit daily, I do twenty squats and ten lunges (five per side).
What to Wear in the Meantime
Before I get started, let me just tell you that it makes no sense to buy clothing fit to your starting weight (assuming you’re trying to lose weight). Instead, if you’re a 12, you may want to buy a dress in an 8 for motivation.
The most important fashion rule for people who have bad thighs is to wear nothing too short. Plus, stay away from jeggings. Body-con garments show your shape more, as opposed to streamlining it like a good pair of strait long jeans could. If you really want to disguise your thighs (nice rhyme ;)), I have the solution for you: maxi. There are so many gorgeous maxi dresses and skirts out there, but opt for colors like black, dark purple, blue, navy, and crimson (which can really flatter some chicas).
SarahLily Money-Saving Stylist Secret: If you know you’re going to start losing weight, or you’re at least planning to, look for maxi skirts with an elastic waist so they will still fit regardless of how much smaller your natural waist gets.
