    This post has made me feel better about my calf size, used to think they were huge but now I am thinking normal :) I still want them smaller, but hey ho, that will come in time ( I hope! )

    I weigh 11 stone 6
    THIGHS: 26 :(
    CALF: 15.

    Okay I never realised my thighs were so huge! =[ well this is the wake up call I needed.

    My thighs are HUGE, I don't have measuments yet, but I hate my thighs. They are one of the things I am most self conscious about besides my huge gut, and arms. I am estimating at least 30 inches, and and calves maybe 15 inches. My waste about 38 inches and for 5'5" I shouldn't wear the same size pants as my 6 foot tall boyfriend :( I'm about 10 lbs down another 70 to go.

    Thighs - 20.4
    Calves - 13.6

    I am a classic apple shape. Carry all my weight in my upper body and even at my heaviest my legs have been toned. Unfortunately, the flipside to slim legs is a pancake bum but I'm working on that.

    I think I'm an oddball here when I say that I LOVE my legs. They're super shapely and muscley

    right thigh 20.25
    right calf - 13.4
    left thigh 19.75
    left calf - 13.1

    I've always put weight on my torso and I'm broad shouldered and narrow hipped and as an above poster said even at my heaviest I still had relatively slim legs, would kill for a small waist and flat tummy but I don't think I'll really ever manage the latter. Grass is always greener. :wink:

    EDIT whoops just realised this is a bit of a zombie thread, hope the OP got their answers 5 years ago lol

    Measured last night, since I was curious and feeling bad about body size...

    123ish (yay water retention or whatever)
    25.3% body fat
    Thighs: 18.25"
    Calves: 11.75"

    Biceps are 9.5"... I'm basically an apple with four toothpicks. And I run and swim -- they're pretty much equally pure muscle, with little fat on top.

    All the fat is in my torso. I really wish it would move from my torso to my limbs!

    Calves: 14.5
    Thighs: 23.5 at the thickest part
    Height: 5'5
    Weight: 146.8lbs

    I would LOVE to lose an inch or two off my thighs! I tend to have a lot of muscle in my legs though (curse 18 years of ballet). as for my calves, I'm not sure they will ever change hahaha. I walked around on my tip toes as a child AND again with the years of dancing. Oh well!

    I don't really know how to get body fat percentage. I don't really trust most online because there all different.

    You shouldn't feel bad about yourself not everyone is going to have the same calf and thigh measurement. Like what's Normal for one does not mean if yours is higher that you're not okay. This thread seems like it could trigger bad feelings for people.

    I have always been told I have large calves.
    They are large for the rest of me.
    I see now though they are average.
    My legs have always been strong.
