I agree. I'm very thin, but I'm quite certain that it would be very difficult for me to gain weight in my ankles. Even in seven pregnancies my ankles remained tiny.

Calves and ankles are pretty much genetic, especially ankles. My calves always looked developed even when I was very thin, and my ankles have always been tiny even when I once gained a bunch of weight a few years back (since lost it thankfully)

everyone has a preference to what they like but maybe these females that tell you are shallow think you aren't all that to be so critical..lol.....I have found that a lot of critical men aren't anything to look at themselves yet they have these ridiculous requirements....I personally don't have cankles I am a long distance runner for 16 years but I think some women are just shaped a certain way if you don't like it don't look at them....

That article has to be joke. Those ladies do not have "cankles".
