Your legs look awesome to me, slender lean and athletic....and not anywhere near "bulky" So I'm at a loss to give you advice on what to do...I don't think you can be athletic and have legs like a Hollywood starve-let. It kills me that the fashion industry has convinced women that skinny and shapeless = sexy
I didn't notice the swelling until I looked a second time. I'd get it checked out if it's been going on this long
Why don't you take a poll, Let people see the pics and vote on whether you should try to "slim down" your legs or be proud of them looking so hot now?
