How You've Tried to Hide Your Varicose Vein

Aug 27, 2008
People are really quite ingenious when it comes to hiding things about their personal appearance that they don't like. Guys wear baseball caps to cover their baldness, Women wear pantyhose with built-in support to control a sagging midriff.

As for you, you have to admit that you're very proud of the ways you've come up with to hide your varicose vein. It's a good thing you have an imagination, because lesser people would have done something "normal", like having the varicose vein treated by a dermatologist.

You first encountered your varicose vein a year ago in the shower while you were shaving your legs. You admit it, you don't shave your legs during the winter much, so your varicose vein could have been there for a couple of months before it was actually discovered.

Had the shampoo not been running into your eyes, you probably would have looked at the varicose vein for a really, really long time. Yes, you were that shocked. There is was, a monstrous greenish purple vein protruding from what was once a very nice leg. You hurriedly finished shaving your legs, and plotted your next plan of action.

The location of the vein was in the most annoying spot. If it had been farther up your leg it certainly would have been more convenient. However, this vein is not your friend, and has decided to park itself right on the side of your knee.

You have a professional job, and are not much in the habit of wearing pantsuits. You prefer to wear short skirts, and up until now haven't had to use pantyhose. Darn it, now you're going to have to stop wearing those rhinestone open-toed shoes you got while on vacation!

If you have to wear pantyhose, you want to at least make a statement with it. So, you've decided to get white pantyhose - it should go very nicely with your black skirt. Unfortunately, once you put on the pantyhose, you realize that not only do you look like you're five years old, but the vein shows through anyway.

Well, that was the end of that idea! You move on to more drastic measures. You read somewhere that celebrities hide their imperfections with body makeup. Well, if that works for them, it should work for you! Except, you don't have any body makeup. Well, your concealer will have to do the trick. You dab a copious amount on your leg, and head off to work.

It turns out that wasn't the best idea, either. Your face and legs are slightly different shades, and now it looks like you have a big bruise on your leg. That night after work, you go through your closet for more ideas. Leggings? Too boring. Longer skirts? Not a chance. Hair kerchief? Yes! You've decided to tie a kerchief (lightly) around your leg to hide that blemish once and for all. Well, maybe you should have gone to see a dermatologist after all. Oh well, who cares what people think, it's a fashion statement!
