“I only ever wear tight black jeans, and I’ve been wearing the same pair for three years. It’s coz I’m really self-conscious of my thighs because they’re pretty thick. I also have wide hips and I hate them. I wear long shirts and am forever pulling them down to make sure my hips are covered. I feel like whenever I wear other jeans or pants it shows how thick my thighs are. I actually think about it every time I have to go anywhere. I had my formal last year and didn’t feel comfortable in suit pants, so I ended up wearing my jeans with a shirt and a suit jacket, even though my mum complained about it. She doesn’t get it though and I don’t want to admit I’m selfconscious about my hips and thighs because it doesn’t seem like a very manly thing to do.” – Cameron, 16.
