    I didn’t choose any of the options above. I actually have short legs. My leg length is the same as my 5’1″ mother and I am about 4 inches taller. So I don’t have cankles unless I am wearing sneakers, then my ankles look a little puffy. It’s like I have a short ankle and calves as well, lol. I don’t know how to explain it.

    I don’t have cankles but I have a thutt (you know, where your butt should clearly stop and your thighs should start, only that line is definitely is a little blurred?) No matter what I do, I cannot make my a** any smaller.

    My aunt-in-law once told me that she has had cankles her whole life. No matter what she does, they’ll never go away.

    If it’s not cankles, then it’s a thutt, if it’s not that than it’s something else. I don’t think it’s a big deal, you’re always your own worst critic 😛

    I don’t have them, thank goodness. I have regular ankles. I think at least? Though I don’t think there’s anything “dainty” about me.

    haha where is the option for “i don’t know”? I have never really understood what makes a cankle a cankle… but i do hate my legs in general. I’m knob-kneed (so if you look at me straight on my knees touch even when my feet are not together). This is true even when I was at my thinnest- a size 4. Now that I’m a 14/16, I carry a lot of weight in my legs and the problem is just amplified. UGH.

    I’m going to say that I have extra skinny ankles. My husband calls them "chicken legs". My ankles are so thin (i have atrophied muscles from twisting them sooo much playing sports–i wore braces during athletic activity for years) that i have trouble wearing d’orsays, pumps, peeptoes, etc. I have to have a maryjane ankle strap. They’re delicate and I have to be careful not to hurt them b/c there’s not a lot there. Boo. And, I do have a picture of my feet and legs, LOL 

    I don’t fit into any of those standard "shapes" that women are, like, apple, pear, etc. I call myself an upside down carrot. Broad on top, teeny on the bottom lol

    I can’t say I really notice cankles for the most part! I think we just find flaws about ourselves and amplify them. I like to focus on my linebacker shoulders/arms and my flabby tummy, lol. It’s always something with us women, isn’t it? =]

    I don’t have cankles but I often have ridiculously swollen ankles due to arthritis problems when I was a teenager.  Fun!

    I am 5’2″ and have a very athletic build. 20 years of running and working out hasn’t helped my ankles – there is no fat there, they are just solid! Hopefully my future children do not inherit them

    @ejs- Me too! I’d have to have my ankles taped and then lace up bike braces before every practice or game. I turn my ankles like nobody’s bidness.

    I’m not a fan of my midsection. It’s getting better though. Down 3 more lbs this week. :p

    I have lovely thin ankles – but I have flintstone feet! lol 

    And I adore shoes – especially strappy sandals, but can only wear the ones that hit my feet in just the right spot(s) . . . sadly, it eliminates so many fabuloulsy fierce shoe options.

    The taller you are, the more force there is on such tiny bones so damn close to the ground, lol. You go down like a rock =]

    I’d say house would be more appropriate.

    Lol. I also have such tiny feet. Nothin’ to support my ass.
