Also, I have a vague fear that thick legs signal higher risk of getting fat someday.
Like women can control that.

FWIW, I find women with legs so thin they have an open T-slot very unattractive.

Doesn't explain all the guys who think Kim K and Coco have great figures with their big butts, hips & thighs. Personally I think they look overweight but I guess their look is the new "thing".

my SO is a dancer (Ballet and contemporary mainly) and I love that she is thin but muscular as a result. However, as with any other thing related to attractiveness, it's going to vary person to person. There isn't a binary set of options that I think are exclusively attractive.

And related, I will say this, as a guy, I HATE when other guys use terms like 'supposed to' 'need' 'should/shouldn't' etc. regarding women's bodies.

IE A woman's thighs shouldnt touch here. A woman's butt shouldnt look like this. A real woman has boobs this big. A woman is supposed to have this kind of shape. etc.

People's body types are way different - healthy or unhealthy. It is completely ok to PREFER a certain shape or size or color, but using these absolutes make it seem like you think the world revolves around you and every woman's existence is purely based upon your sexual attractiveness preferences. And frankly it's kind of gross.

"Should" as according to the normal distribution in nature. It's not like I myself have a preference over thin legs vs. thick, since I voted "Undecided." It doesn't look like Kim K's legs touch, which demonstrates that thickness and touching each other aren't the same thing.

My thread, as dredged up, should stick to the question I posed.

I've never even heard of "thick legs", lol. What does it mean? The links earlier in the thread no longer work. 4-yr-old thread.

There's no clinical definition.

Tina Turner's legs in pictures usually look on the thick side.

For legs of normal thickness that are close to universal appeal, I'll surprisingly cite Mariah Carey, circa 2000. She's not known for that now, but pictures speak for themselves and her legs reportedly were insured for a million dollars.

Use that Mariah (or almost any swimsuit model's legs) as the mid-point. Wider circumference is "thick," narrower is "thin."

Mariah’s legs would be skinny in my own definition based on that picture.

But obviously thick/thin is individual and based on your own context.

Here is a person I’d say has thick legs: fitness model Lita Lewis.

I don't think it matters. If they're thin and covered with cellulite they're not attractive. If they're thin and toned, they are. Same with thick. It isn't about thin vs thick, it is about healthy and toned.
