A few months back, we offered some tips on getting the perfect selfie. But we know that’s not enough as many of us girls like to show off one of our best features that we can only truly show when En Femme – our legs. The sexy leg pic is a must for any CD/TG photo gallery. When done right, our legs can be our most feminine feature since it is the one body part that most resembles our genetic female counterparts.
With the summer months here and our annual Sexy Legs Contest right around the corner, now is a great time to learn a few tips or to get a refresher course.
Before we get started, we need to make sure our legs are shaved, but I will assume that was already self explanatory.
Get some color on those pasty white legs
Most of us aren’t naturally tan. Some of us have legs so pale that we look like we have ghost legs. A simple solution is to get some tanner and apply it to your legs. We would suggest using a good tanner as opposed to going into a tanning bed, that way you have some control on how you want your legs to look. Another great plus of tanner is that it can help to hide any imperfections, bruises or varicose veins you may have. We all love seeing those nice smooth tan sexy legs. So this is a great first step.
Shine those legs up
Along with the tanner, a great rule of thumb is to shine your legs up a bit. The smooth shiny surface adds to the allure that sexy legs give off. Start by shaving your legs and once you’re done put on some moisturizer as the legs can become quite dry post shaving. Besides moisturizer, oils are a great way to add some shine to your legs as well.
Our suggestion is to use a combination of both of these tips for a really amazing look. If you go to your local drug store or beauty shop, you can get some self tanner along with some body shimmer. Together you can create a nicely tanned and shiny look for those lovely legs.
Now I know there are some of you out there who aren’t able to shave your legs for one reason or another and if you fall into that category, the easiest and best solution are some sexy stockings. If you are looking for the perfect pair of stockings to hide those pesky legs hairs while still giving off some sex appeal, try our Opaque Stockings. The thicker fabric hides the leg hair and will compliment your legs while in a nice skirt. If you are someone who does shave but prefers the sexy stocking look over bare legs, that is another way to go and sometimes way more fun with the right pair of stockings. This also leads us to our next tip…
Have your skirt (or shorts) at a perfect length
When going for a sexy legs pic that everyone will drool over, you must wear a skirt. Pants are not welcome into the sexy legs photo. The shorter the skirt, the more leg there is to show. Some of our favorite pics in the past include a nice pair of stockings with a lace top or some garters showing with a short skirt leaving little to the imagination. Drooling indeed!!
We will add an addendum to this tip as you can never go wrong with a pair of short shorts. Daisy Duke knew what she was doing when she put on those little shorts all those years ago. In fact, that look has become so famous that aside from the look being called the “Daisy Duke,” it has withstood the test of time and is still just as popular if not more popular today. Oiled legs with a pair of Daisy’s on…. Just wow. Who is going to be the contestant to give us this look in this year’s contest?
Make sure those feet look just as good
Since a sexy leg photo does need to include your feet, we need to make sure they are looking as good as your legs. Now if you choose to do a picture barefoot, make those puppies look pretty. Nail polish at the least. But make sure your feet look as silky and smooth as your legs.
If you go the shoe route as most do, make sure the shoes compliment the legs. A pair of stilettos are a great way to go or even an open toed sandal if you still want to be able to show off those toes. No matter which way you go, try to stay uniform in the look from thigh to toe.
Make sure your legs are the star of the photo
Sometimes we receive pics for the Sexy Legs Contest where you wouldn’t even know it was a photo for that contest. Your legs need to be the focal point of the shot. If you are wearing a super flashy or busy looking outfit, it is going to draw attention away from your legs. Pay attention to your background as well. Pictures trying to show off your legs with a lot going on behind you is another way to draw attention away from the stars of the photos, your legs!! Make sure the viewer’s eyes are focused on your legs!!
Position, position, position
There are quite a few ways to position your legs to get the best possible photo. Instead of explaining it let me give you a few actual photos as examples below:
Just like a regular selfie, the leg selfie or full body leg shot is all about the angles. If you’re standing, sitting or laying down, each position has its own best way to angle for the photo. Try a few positions to see what work best for you. You can always take a look back at former contestants for ideas on our Facebook Contest page – https://foto-app.appspot.com/app/foto/inst/155609007822092?preview=1&ver=5&latest=6
If Looking to do a shot that is not a leg selfie, make sure you have help or at least a tripod
If you are looking to get a full shot of yourself in a pose that shows off your legs like the one above, ask a friend, if possible to take the picture. They can help you with the pose while looking through the camera lens or cell phone screen. If you are unable to get a hand, most phones and cameras these days have timers. Take some time to set up a shot with the camera on a tripod and use the timer to your advantage. It may take a few tries, but you will like the results a lot better.
With this guide to help you along the way, you will be all ready to go when our Sexy Legs Contest launches at the end of next month. All of us here at Glamour Boutique hope to see lots of legs this year!!
