Yes, thin does get interchangeably used for fit.

I like calves and thighs that are slightly thicker and cut, leading up to a larger hip/booty combination. Almost speed skater like quality to put it simply. That is my preference but it's not a requirement. Not all women have the muscle tone and caliber of legs like a speed skater or gymnast but I do gravitate to the ladies with thicker stronger legs.

Shapely calves and thighs are sexy to me on women of all heights.

As a dyed in the wool leg man, thin for sure. Long and thin.

I won't vote because I'm female, but I don't like fat legs. J Lo has thick thighs, which I find unattractive.
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.

I also know plenty of 'thin' people who couldn't run half a mile without wheezing and stopping, but most people would peg them as 'fit' if they saw them out and about.

So, for the purpose of discussion I think we can agree that 'fit' means thin, and not actually fit.
Ooops! How could I forget!

Only on very thin women do thin legs look good IMO. I'm female, but even at 138 lbs I never had legs that looked like that. They were shapely and suited my figure. At 5 10 I didn't need to make them appear longer or more tapered. Came with the territory of being tall.

She looks pretty thin and doesn't appear to have a thigh gap.

Although I bet my opinion doesn't count, but I am on team thick. I blame my mom. She always complained about "skinny" legs.

My vote goes to Cheryl Burke:

Well, being thin, my thighs don't touch, but in proportion to my body they are not really skinny, just slender. Part of it is they tend to be thicker the other way, supporting my "bubble butt". But I think most people would still say they're thin.

I prefer slender legs, on both men & women. Shapeliness & length make a difference also. Ugly legs on a man is a real turn-off for me, I must admit.

I heard once that ideal legs touch in 3 places - at the knee, mid calf & at the ankle.

Perfect legs imo.
Those are too thin for my tastes. I prefer kind of average (well fit average, not average) but shapely, toned and well proportioned. I want a bit of flesh, not just bony limbs.
