    Me too! IN All my toddler pictures, I am on my tippy toes! I must've been toning my legs very early on. Too early, it seems!

    Hi MFPals!

    I'm trying to find the average thigh and calf sizes for women online and found nothing substantial to compare myself to. I am bottom heavy and my goal is to fit in regular rain boots but am unsure what the standard calf size is for women. I want a number to set my goals to! Here are my stats:

    Calves: 14.25"
    Thighs: 21"
    Height: 5'3"
    Body fat: 24.5%

    Stats from women of all shapes & sizes welcome! Thanks for helping a girl out!

    My calves were 17" a few months ago. I've lost about an inch off of them. I have very athletic calves, so they won't ever be slim.
    Thighs - no idea
    weight 151
    Height: 5'7"
    body fat - 23.5%

    So what's the inches where calves will fit into regular boots?

    My calves are 18" and my thighs... well a rather chunky 32"!

    Unless you have slim calves, (neither you nor I do) you have to buy boots that are sized to fit your calves. Most online shoe sites have the calf measurement for the boot.

    I think most boots aim for a 14-15" calf.

    Weight 135 lbs
    Bodyfat: 17.1% (last measured Oct 2016)
    Thighs: 21"
    Calves: 13"

    I'm a powerlifter, have a very muscular build and a large frame. My BF is probably closer to 18%-19%? as I have been bulking since last November. Interesting note I'm 58 years old and my biceps are 13" lol. I'm in better shape now than I ever was even when I was much younger.

    Height: 5'2 3/4"
    Weight: too much- still losing
    Calves: 14"
    Thighs: 26 3/4" on left, 27 1/4" right

    I was a dancer most of my life and have strong, large thighs. They are also the first place I lost (the inner thigh). As I'm losing my legs are fairly balanced. I'll feel fine with them when I'm done. I am mostly broad hipped. My boots fit really well at 14" calves but I could get them zipped at 14.5".

    Different body types do exist, so I'm not sure how trying to fit into other people's sizes will help you out.

    I think I am heavier than everyone on here, but I am a swimmer and carry all my weight in my upper body.
    5' 9'
    calves - 13.5"
    thighs - 20.5"

    I have no idea about body fat, but I am sure my waist is much bigger than all of yours!
