I agree - that model looks like someone who was starved... so unhealthy.... No normal leg shape, no muscle tone. If she keeps that up, she'll have osteoporosis by the age of 30....

I have noticed that men tend to prefer a little more meat/curve then most "skinny" women have. Women push themselves to an ideal in *their* mind that is often not even what men are looking for.

Well proportioned, healthy/fit is a better goal.

Spoken by someone with a gap between my thighs..... That's certainly not the ideal for most men. Spoken by one who knows....

I think the body has to have a running theme..lol

Thick legs go well with thicker bodies and vice versa.

Two bad things for each type:
thin - prone to horse knee/prominent veins
thick - lumpy or too thick which makes the person look shorter/squatty/small-shouldered

My gap is smaller being fit and overall smaller, than skinny fat and bigger (sizewise). It totally goes away if I work my legs hard enough that they swell.

The super thin pic just looks like a typical build of a tall teen after growth spurt which is what most models are.

The woman on the right in the red suit. She is slender with slender legs. Not thin.

I wanted to define the terms with visuals when I made the thread, but I couldn't think of any great examples. I agree that the legs of the woman in the red bathing suit aren't "thin." They also aren't thick. I never said there's no in-between and in fact my ideal would be the in-between (and very much like her legs). But there's sort of an underlying point the results might indicate, against the distorted ideal of women often held by the media and women.

I need some meat on them thighs, something to grab onto. Nothing wrong with being thin but it doesn't do much for me.

Topics like this are meaningless without defining the terms used.
This ^^^ Oh, goody! (rubs hands in glee) Another body parts thread! When will women learn men are hardwired to like fit and healthy, it is a basic anthropological survival valuation assessment. Weight means nothing - displacement tone and shape do! Be fit and healthy AND great legs come in all shapes in sizes and when commensurate with the body typology - can most always look lovely.

Dancers and athletes generally have the best legs. A variety of samples

I do not agree. Men do not have unilateral taste in terms of attraction. I personally think soccer players, sprinters, and modern or jazz dancers have awesome legs, and there are other men who would say that they are too thick, have too much definition, are too bulky or some other thing.
