    Just like you're right or left handed, you're right or left legged. One will be slightly dominent. Also, if you measure both your feet one will be slighly longer. My left hand ring finger is size 7.5... right is 8.

    I have this too! <whew> I'm not a freak :)

    It does come down to you favouring one leg over another that's all.

    my right leg has always been a bit bigger. Calf is a full 1/2 inch bigger, I only notice with tall boots and tight jeans though.

    It's normal. Neither my legs or arms match. I wouldn't worry too much about it. The measuring tape may say in inch, but since it's distributed around your entire leg it's negligible.

    My left calf is a full 1.5 inches bigger than the right! I chalk it up to driving a Porsche for years, with it's heavy clutch :tongue:

    Trousers are often tighter on my left leg than my right.
    I'm right handed so assumed I'd be right footed but whatever the reason - it's just me :bigsmile:

    I have this too... not only my thigh, but my foot and my boob on that side are also bigger :) Apparently it's pretty normal during embryonic development and carries over into adulthood...

    Hahah I don't know, but it sucks. I mean, I only have it on one thigh, which is why it's bigger than the other.

    I'm similar. My left thigh is 24" and my right one is 24.5". This has been pretty consistent (a small difference) between the two for a while now.

    When I sit indian style I always notice it. My left leg folded there's no fat lines just straight/toned looking....my right leg I have more creases and my leg seems heavier. Strange. It annoys me lol

    Your definitely not alone. I took measurements for the first and thought I was crazy I measured myself 3 times, still got 2 different measurements for each leg. when I saw this post I said huh...I not as crazy as I thought I was. Guess we need to work that lazy leg more.
