I think gaps depend on your hip bone structure, so maybe you have very small hips?

Yeah, you are probably right....sad day. I really wish they were possible for me.

Look at other people in your family, if they have thigh gaps, maybe you can have one, too?
They tend to run in your genes, the only way I knew I'd get a thigh gap, even if only a small one, is because my sister has one. :p

Mine are 19 inches and don't seem to join at any point at all from top to knees, oddly.
I do cycle a lot, however. I am just under 5'10 and 126Ibs.

Whoever's legs are in your photo look anorexic, in my opinion. They look like a sick person's legs. Skinny or malnutritioned is NOT attractive.
May 11, 2012 6:36 PM
mine are about 18" at the widest part and i am 5'7. barely a thigh gap though so im sure hip size contributes to that.

i am also in recovery & trying to gain. I personally think my legs look sickly.

FYI, although the girl in the picture looks like she may suffer from an eating disorder, people can't look anorexic just because they're skinny because not all anorectics are super skinny...

~18-20" is usually pretty thin (higher if you're taller..)
mine were pretty thin at 20.25" & I'm short lol

You are very petite. Your hips are 10" wider than your waist....they say that is a perfect measurement (10" difference between hips and waist). I can promise you that your thighs are not huge. Now could you firm them up to look better, I don't know since I do not know what you look like. But, you are looking at the curve of your hips as fat or huge and really, that is just a shape of a woman. Our waist goes in and our hips go out. It is beautiful...embrace your petite curves!!!

Feel free to stop the body-bashing any time now. I know this has been brought up before, but why is it ok to bash anorexics for being too thin but not binge eaters or over eaters for being too big? Give me a break.

How often do you see folks here aspiring to be fat, like those gals aspiring to be twigs?


Oh, so is it ok to bash the overweight people who aren't on here trying to make a change? Is it ok to make fun of a compulsive eater just because they aren't ready to take care of themselves? Some anorexics are simply not ready to recover, and if they aren't ready, it's just not going to happen. Making fun of their bodies sure as hell won't speed up the process. If anything, it could trigger them even more. No, I'm not glorifying emaciated bodies or defending the desire to look that way. But I'm aolso not going to go out of my way to make someone with body issues feel even worse about themselves.

Also, you may want to google body dysmorphic disorder.

If people would just take the time to learn a little bit more about these things, maybe there wouldn't be so many horrible, ignorant comments directed toward girls with EDs on here.

I'm only on page 4 of this, but had to comment on the above post^^....I think you are right on and you articulated it beautifully. I have BDD, and it can apply not only to the very thin, but to the very obese...it doesn't discriminate. You look in the mirror and you see something that isn't there...either larger or smaller. We all need to support each other, regardless of where are journey is at the moment. While I don't actively support intentional starvation to achieve a goal, I understand that when a person is entrenched in an ED, their thinking is not "healthy," and it creates an ideal that, realistically, is not attainable.

So, to add to the actual conversation...I have 21" thighs...which have gone up by 1" since last year thanks to my extreme devotion to Power Yoga smile I am 5'9" BTW. I have a "thigh gap" thanks to my 36" hips and bow legs, and have actually always detested it, because I was teased about it in school...but, I don't think it looks bad on specific body types.

Hahahaha that's great. I actually did sort of look like that when I was 12, now that I think of it. :D

I'm not interested in bashing anyone. I'm also not interested in FEEDING INTO anyone's food issues.

That said: I haven't seen very many obese folks on here saying: I want to be fatter. Or binge eaters saying: I wonder if I could eat 4 thousand calories in my next meal. And, then I often see an age difference. Usually I check out when posters talk about other "girls" looking good. Or "other girls" tell me it's okay to be this thin.... these are kids. Not adults. And if this thread isn't a teen, then the next one to use it as "inspiration" probably will be.


LOL-- very well said!

I keep wanting to respond to this thread, but my grandma always told me 'if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all'.

Or, I guess in this case- 'if you have giant thighs and don't have anything nice to say to tiny people don't say anything at all'.... lol

^^THIS!!!^^ With a 10" difference between your hips and waist and about the same between your bust and waist, your figure is truly an hourglass and probably way more attractive than you realize. I'm 4'11" and the tops of my thighs are 21" the last I checked. and if I could ever DREAM of a 10" difference between my hips and waist I would be ecstatic! I've had three kids, so at this point I don't know if that's possible, but it is what I am striving for at some point in my future. I really think you're probably fine just the way you are and just need to learn to see the 'whole picture' instead of focusing so strongly on the size of a single body part. See yourself as the beautiful person I think you probably are and stop trying to fix what isn't broken! flowerforyou

Pretty much. There is nothing cute about that picture, and if someone wants to look like that they either 1. Believe that the skinnier you are, the better; or 2. Want attention.

Mine are 22inches. The size is lovely on my frame, but I'd like more muscle and less rat on them.

5'8, 19.5 inch thighs, and no gap. My hips apparently won't let me have one. :(
May 11, 2012 10:40 PM
5'8 18.5" thighs with a bit of a thigh gap. I don't love my thighs, that's for sure. I'd like to lose another inch or so :)
