It sucks to be skinny AND have cankles

In the midst of my panic attack about passing out with a apparent bottle of urine in my bag last night, I noticed a girl on the subway who was thin and svelt but had major cankles. And I thought to myself, "that poor, poor girl - to be blessed with the thin gene AND the fat ankle gene must suck." Big time.

You may be thinking, well isn't be thin with cankles better than being fat with cankles. Well, I disagree. At least if you're overweight, there's still somewhat of a curve to your calf/ankle area, versus your entire lower leg being one long stump.

Either way, I suppose cankles suck big time.

Do you think people get lipo on cankles? Just some food for thought on this wonderful, 99 degree Friday...

    2. but you don't have to have disgustingly popping out bones either. A perfect leg is when those bulgy inward bones are not showing, but a beautiful straight leg..

  4. Everyone has their little flaws. I don't know if it is worth getting lipo for though... I guess it depends on how noticeable they are. It would be odd to be thin and have cankles though. I do see the point of the post.

  5. I'm 37, thin, always have been,(5'3" 104#) and have cankles. I've been made fun of my whole life for them. In my case, it's genetic. In my family the body decides to store more fat in the ankle area (no matter how low your body fat), combined with bigger built bone structure. It sucks and there is nothing you can do about it besides "body sculpting" liposuction. I've researched this a lot because I'm very self-conscious about it, so I never wear shorts or skirts.

  6. Uhmm...That is soooo wrong!! you people are very strange who think BONEY FROG LOOKING LIKE ANKLES IS ATTRACTIVE, because it isn't. It is a beautiful leg, when your leg is NOT full of ugly vieny bones that is a beautiful leg!!! and who cares if a skinny girl does not have froggy like popping out ankles showing, its a plus instead of always getting blisters on your bony legs..ew..
