    After reading some of these replies I now realise my calves and thighs are rather large.

    5ft 1
    Body fat 30.1%
    Weight 130 lbs
    Calf 14 inches
    Thigh 23.5 inches.
    Not really, you're right around my size & I don't consider my legs "rather large" I am happy my legs aren't sticks & have meat on them. Don't compare to others, you're just fine :happy:

    Thank you for your kind words. X

    thigh=19 inches
    calf=13 inches
    130 pounds

    I've never had issues with my legs, but I would like to drop a little around the waist and add a little to my rear!

    I realize this is a very old thread that someone just bumped up,

    But I wanted to post just because this is hilarious. I have such chicken legs.

    Height: 5'10"
    Weight: 210 lbs
    Body Fat: 31%
    Thighs: 20"
    Calf: 14"

    Considering that my calves and thighs are the same size as people with like 135lbs and such.... hahaha. I've always held my weight at my stomach.

    edited to include body fat estimation

    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!

    Wow it's like we're twins!

    Calves: 14, 14.5
    Thighs: 21, 21.5
    Weight: 120lbs
    Height: 5'3"
    Body fat: 19-24% (depending on which calculator I use)

    i carry MOST of my weight in my lower half and my calves especially have always been disproportionately large for my frame. oh well.
  • LaDonnaFLaDonnaF Posts: 75Member Member Posts: 75Member Member
    calves 15in
    thighs 24

    Think in general women are bottom heavy - gotta protect the baby
  • BonnieFifeBonnieFife Posts: 104Member Member Posts: 104Member Member
    Im 5ft 6"
    Calves 15.5"
    Thighs 26.5"
    Not sure on my BF but my BMI is 28.1

    Not sure on the average as there would have to be many as we are all different heights, i also think genes play a part ive always had quite chunky thighs, they can be lean & muscly but have never been skinny, my calves are pretty much the same but alot leaner than my thighs, ive also seen top heavy women with the slimmest of legs & no bum so who knows !
