    Hi well my lower legs have always been quite muscly and I've never managed to buy a pair of knee boots from a 'normal' shop. While they've shrunk a little on ll so far I'm really hoping they'll get a LOT slimmer.

    How have your legs been affected and has anyone had the aforementioned problem before ll and found that ll helped shed weight from here?

    Yes!! LOL!

    I couldn't wear ordinary boots before, and in fact I used to struggle to fasten up some ankle boots and leave the zips half way while the fat oozed out over the top!!

    I now have two pairs of knee length boots, and they both fasten beautifully and are actually slightly wide at the top of the calf!! ;-)

    Yes. Yes. Yes

    I can't say I've ever been lucky enough to have muscly calves, but they've always been fat, my worst bit. I have spent ages in shops before trying to force zips or boots without zips - even extra wide calf ones - up my legs. Gave up thinking I 'd ever be able to wear nice boots again, which is why those boots I bought last year were so important.
    This week I've got Kate Moss syndrome!
    I've got some high plain black boots which were tight a month ago, now they are loose around the top with a gap between the boots and me, even with thick tights.
    Like Poppy said - too many good things about LL to mention.
    By the way - ask BL about boots and how many pairs she has.....................

    You will Daisy

    and you'll be there in the mud, probably you'll laugh out loud when you remember this post and realise people around you haven't got a clue why!
    That kind of thing keeps happening to me.
    I'm sure you'll enjoy the festivals more this year - in your honeymoon dress, boots and probably sitting on your OHs shoulders above the crowd !!
    Way to go xxxx

    Yeah definitely, I could put on all the boots in bhs yesterday though don't know if that says anything they might be wider than normal anyway. But I think my calves have shrunk for sure..

    It is one meassurement that's often forgotten along with upper arms and thigh!

    I cleared out the back of a cupboard the other day and found 6 pairs of knee boots I'd forgotten about!! All the ankle boots had walked their way to the front. Guess the skirts will have to be found now as well.
