Okay so I'm happy that I FINALLY have something of a thigh gap beginning to form... BUT I have knees that when I put my feet together they touch even though my thighs don't! Seriously wtf?! Like I thought I only had to aspire to a thigh gap but now I have to add knee gap to my (increasingly) long list of life goals? Is this a thing for anyone else??

It's just bone structure - I've seen bonespo with girls who have basically no fat and some of their knees still touch because that's just their leg and hip shape. I personally think it looks super cute! Try not to worry about it

Thank you, that's really sweet and somewhat reassuring 😅 It just sucks because I'm 5ft and the short life (for me anyway) doesn't lend itself well to an easily visible thin appearance... And I can still feel / see fat/skin/whatever it is around the knee bone so it doesn't look so great on me 🙄

same here, I actually thought that was normal? I thought that's why it's a THIGH gap?

I never really gave it much thought but then looking at other people's pictures as well as people IRL I realised maybe I'd missed something 😕

When I was at my lowest I had the same thing. If you stand differently they don't touch. I just realised how bad my posture was.

Some people have knocked knees like you and me. I call them extreme X legs haha. Some people have more O legs, rounded, and their knees don't touch and some people have X legs but their knees don't touch either because they are straight or point more outward. So it's all bone structure. It's normal.

I've had my knees touching at the beginning of having a thigh gap as I started to lose more, my knees don't touch anymore.

It’s just your bone structure. We are all either straight legged, bow legged or knock kneed. If you have knock knees your knees will always touch, it doesn’t mean anything tho and if you can have a thigh gap with knees that touch then you should be proud of that gap

YEAHHH i got those fucked up penguin ass knocked knees for DAYYYS. i've been trying to correct them with exercise, but i don't think it's possible at this point. they're one of my biggest insecurities: i put my feet together and my knees press up against each other until i have a red mark. i'm just trying to lose weight until they don't at least press up against each other uncomfortably, but realistically that's probably not possible for me.

 

hopefully through a stroke of luck my hips get wider and my knees get straighter, but honestly i think it's just something that i have to come to accept.

like others have said, its very normal !!

 

i also think its a good way to gauge just how big of a thigh gap you have, surely its a good sign if you still have a gap when your knees are very close together or touching??

I've always thought people's who's knees touched look cuter. My knees don't touch im really bow legged. Like I don't even have like a real thigh gap thd upper part still touched but my knees don't. Its proll just one of those grass is always greener on the other side type things, wanting what we physically can't achieve

Oh yeah, even at my lowest. I actually grew to love the fact that my thighs were smaller than my knees, it was a reassuring thing for me


I'm literally just a mess at this point:

 

mess
/mes/
 
noun
 
  1.  
    a dirty or untidy state of things or of a place
     
  2. a situation or state of affairs that is confused or full of difficulties.

Think I have the first one actually. My feet have always pointed outwards and people have often commented that I walk like a penguin. That might just be the way they'vedrawn it though. When my feet are together they touch but not entirely the bone. More just the skin. Is that normal or am I just talking shit?
