Comment on Skin Colour is Not a Fashion Statement (And no, we won’t “get a tan…”) by penni.
I’m super pale, too, and when I’m not too lazy to, I do use self-tanner on my legs. I think having lightly tanned skin is like wearing a black dress. It’s slimming. When I’ve used self-tanner, I feel like I’ve lost 10lbs on my legs, and I don’t think it’s simply because I’ve been socialized to think that tan is better than pale. I really think it’s a type of optical illusion.
On the other hand, with the whole popularity of vampires these days, I wouldn’t be surprised if paleness comes back “in”.

Kate Middleton causes sales of sheer hosiery to “skyrocket”. Do you wear sheer tights?
This is exactly what I wanted to say. Pale skin also makes it easier to see any impurities of the skin, and the nude tights definitely help even out the color. And yes, matt all the way.
