@Laurenskii:  Right? It’s so strange to me how much that memory sticks out to me from 14 years ago, and then I can’t remember something that happened last week.

I have one.. I never knew it was a thing until recently though when people started talking about “the thigh gap”. When I was a teenager I thought I looked weird because my thighs didn’t touch.

Anyways, I think it has to do mostly with hip/pelvis structure than necessarily being super thin. For some woman having a thigh gap is natural and for other’s it will never happen. Just like some people have a longer 2nd toe than their big toe… it’s just the way we are.

@Laurenskii:  I have no clue.. Here I was more worried about the soccer game I had to play in later…not worrying about whether or not my thighs touched. I didn’t even start wearing makeup/doing my hair at this point in my life either. It was just something I wasn’t  concerned with until a couple years later. Oh well.. I turned out ok! 😉

@letigre:  Would you like his number so that you may lecture him on proper anatomical facts? lol.

I found it FUNNY that so many people are concerned about thigh gaps and have insane reasonings for why they are/are not acceptable. Like my friend for example. 

So get off your soapbox.

@PinkMermaid:  Your friend has a terrible concept of anatomy if he thinks he’s grinding against the actual dimensions of her pelvis. That or maybe only been intimate with a fleshlight…

It reminds me of my brother in law’s reaction when my sister told him I was looking into a copper IUD. “Gross. It’s going to taste like a penny when Mr.Bracelet goes down!” And she just stared in utter befuddlement at her husband.

So, you have to be standing with your feet together? Does it count if I’m wearing these?

@PinkMermaid:  I can’t even. You’re ridiculously rude. You’re pointing out the ridiculousness of obsessing about a thigh gap while simultaneously putting down women with wide hips.

I don’t need to get off any soapboxes, and I won’t bother telling you where to go either.

@MissPine:  hahaha that’s cute. 

 

 

 

the idea that a thigh gap can be achieved by essentially weight loss and weight training seems absurd to me too (reference to other thread). it is impossible to target where which part of the body you want to reduce. When you create a calorie deficit and the body starts to lose fat the body decides where the weight comes off. I think it is to do with genetics. Typically for me and my dad it is the wrists, neck, stomach. For other people it might be arms, thighs, ankles or some other area. You can weight train and that will tone certain areas but you can’t choose where you lose mass. of course if you take weight loss to an extreme eventually your body will resemble a skeleton and there will be a thigh gap because there will be little muscle covering the bones. But there are plenty of people (as evidenced by this thread alone) who have a thigh gap naturally. I’m just saying if you have no natural thigh gap and you are a slim-healthy weight you won’t necessarily be able to achieve a gap just be creating a healthy calorie deficit and weight training. And I think it’s a bit misleading to say there are ‘hacks’ to getting a thigh gap lol.

@letigre:  Rude or not, you are clearly not in any way remotely close to understanding to what my post entailed. I’d suggest staying out of things you don’t fully understand to avoid looking silly. I’ll break it down for you.

I said that it was RIDICULOUS for women to OBSESS over thigh gaps.

What I DIDN’T say is that women with thigh gaps are ridiculous. There is a difference and hopefully that is clear to you now.

@PinkMermaid:  uh did I say that you insinuated that women with thigh gaps are ridiculous? No I did not. You need to take your own advice and back off. Your first post in this thread was incredibly rude and inflammatory. You tried to fix one thing and burnt down the whole house.

Your story about your male friend was NOT FUNNY, and it added nothing to this thread except thinly veiled body shaming. That was my point, but based on your posts, you’ll probably misconstrue my words again. Don’t bother replying because I won’t be wasting any more time engaging with you.

@letigre:  totally! i’m a chubby bunny now, but even when I wasn’t my thighs ALWAYS touched! My bff has the greatest thigh gap ever hahaha I’m so jealous, but like I said even at the same size I never had one!! Generally, I am not what you would call ‘body positive’ I hate being chubby & I hated every ounce of fat on me even when I was skinny, but the thigh gap is so not something I ever worried about or strived for, it’s like a skeletal issue lol what the hell are we supposed to do about that!

@Car7yn44:  It’s not all it’s cracked up to be. My wide set pelvis and skinny legs mean that as a side sleeper, I have to tuck a pillow between my knees or my hips get all out of place and my spine hurts in the morning. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not all “WOE is me. I got ALL THESE HIPS.” but it has its goods and bads. 

 

And sorry,

@PinkMermaid:  I’m afraid your post was in the wrong. You popped in with a cute story about how you asked your guy friends how they fealt about it, and one essentially responded with “I figure they have loose pussies.” I mean. Let’s be honest. For some reason you were amused with that being his response, but… It’s really not a charming response, and you chose to come back with the story of “men think it means you have a floppy vagina.” I think you meant well, in a “ho ho, see how little thigh gaps matter to men?” way, but gurl.

 

Gurl.

I never knew a “thigh gap” was a desirable thing until hearing about this “trend” earlier this year.

I happened to catch a glance of myself in the mirror when my ankles were together earlier this week and thought “Huh, so that’s what all the fuss is about? The ability to see a little gap between my thighs?”

I think it’s a silly thing. I’m 5’4″ and 105lbs., and have always been slender. This is something I never even considered.

Even though I have it, I don’t “get” it. lol
