aborigines, african natives, especially those in E.Africa. Both men and women are slim by our standards, but women's fat stores are more evenly distributed. Those Native Americans probably aren't eating their natural diet, at least totally.

What is a "native?"

Kind of sad, to think about why they'd do that.

Considered starting the poll: Women: Thick Legs or Thin Legs on Men?
No need, I'm quite sure the definitive results would have been: Either, doesn't matter, it's a man's heart and mind and smile and voice that make him sexy. Legs are too far down the list to matter.
Oops, yeah, I had heard about a body double, although the promo picture I had in mind might really be Julia Roberts.

I agree that poll would be a waste of time, but you could instead ask about the ideal male leg shape, mostly in terms of muscularity. I'm curious about that myself.

Most female legs can look good wearing high heels, which gives a false impression of length and taper.
See what they look like in flats or barefoot.
See, I think that pic is hot.

Also, I have a vague fear that thick legs signal higher risk of getting fat someday.
You might want to pick a different gender then, since on average 33% of a woman's weight is between her hips and knees, directly in her thighs.

My legs have been praised before.
I'm a "chick" too, and I like thighs like mine. "Thick", muscular, and have a shape to them. My thighs are considered thick I guess, but they are mostly muscle, from years of gymnastics, horseback riding (include barrel racing), sprinting, bicycling, and other activities that you need lots of muscle for.

This is what I find attractive in women's legs, and hubby does as well.

These are pretty much the best kinds of legs that a woman can have:

I'm only against thick legs if they are attached to cankles/stumps.. I like thick legged women with small ankles and feet. Those features also seem to go along with a nice behind and slim waist. Hmmm...That's my wife! Hooray!!!! No wonder I have been a happily married man for 24 years now!!! Well, and she is so smart, kind, and beautiful it hurts!!!

Chicken legs are a turn off! They are far too masculine-looking for me.
