Has anyone else noticed that women's legs sometimes look better when they are sitting or crouching?

What do you think of this phenomenon?

Actually, all the women I know, including myself, say that they all think their legs look the worst when sitting or crouching.

I like big legs as opposed to skinny ones and typically a chair makes legs and a butt like bigger then when standing up. For instance, Alicia Keys sitting on the piano bench at the superbowl last night.

So yeah.

Here is an example. Two pictures of the same actress, Hudson Leick. She looks much better sitting as opposed to standing.

yes, because our legs become "smushed" against each other and look bigger than normal

Marilyn Monroe (see pics) is a good example of a woman with great legs standing or sitting:

I have a policy against crouching.

It really depends on a lot of things: shoes, position and what shape her legs are in.

I agree. Only women/girls of a certain physique can pull that look off properly when crouching/sitting:

Women with a "fuller body" tend to look awkward, and the thickness of their thighs is accentuated by such postures:
