I have a thigh gap for the first time since I went through puberty. As a teen and young adult, I was knock kneed so my thigh touched even when I was at my thinnest about eight pounds lighter than I am now. I know that a thigh gap isn't necessarily as sign of being underweight, but the bone structure in the legs.
This article about thigh gap alarms me. www.dailymail.co.uk/fema
I didn't even notice I had a thigh gap until I was exercising one day (a month or two ago) and realized my legs no longer rubbed. I thought it was a sign that my bone structure is different than when I was twenty-five and nothing to concern myself about. I still have muscular, heavy thighs, not skinny thighs by any stretch of imagination.
I figure that a very skinny woman legs could touch and a normal weight woman like myself can have a small gap between her thighs. I can't believe there are people that think thigh gaps are gross. I'm nowhere near super skinny with a BMI of 23. A thigh gap to me says that my bones are different than they were when I was a girl. That isn't a big deal, but something to be expected.
I goggled thigh gap after seeing that article to learn what the fuss was all about. I saw a lot of super skinny women pictured. Very few of the pictures did the women look anything like me: normal sized with a very small thigh gap.
