8 Things Only Girls With Big Thighs Will Understand

If you know me (or watched this video), you know that confidence, self esteem and self-love is not something that I lack (although I wasn’t always like this – but that’s a story for another time).

And often times I will say things like “I couldn’t wear those pants because my thighs would literally not fit,” or “If I wear a skirt that tight, my legs will take over the outfit.”

For some reason whenever I say things like that, my friend/shopping buddy thinks it’s their DUTY to deny this statement wholeheartedly. Like they’ve been denying their friends negative statements their entire life, it’s become automatic. Do you know what I mean?

I’m not trying to squeeze out compliments from my friends when I say things like that – I say it because it’s true. I’m WELL AWARE of the fact that my thighs are large, and damn right they are! I squat and deadlift twice a week, I’d be a bit disappointed if they weren’t.

That being said, I put together a little (and hopefully funny) list of things that only girls with big thighs could understand

8 Things Only Girls With Big Thighs Will Understand

1. You will never be able to rock ripped jeans like this girl from Pinterest.

ripped jeans

Instead, your thigh fat (or… muscle?) will seep through the holes, and rip the strategically placed denim threads. If you DO find a pair of ripped jeans that fit your thunder thighs, they will be wayyyy too big on your waist, and you’ll have to spend $25 on a single pair of cool Calvin Klein underwear

If you do ever find a pair of ripped jeans that somehow fits your thighs and your waist, LITERALLY CALL ME RIGHT NOW, and tell me where you got them. Otherwise, i’ll keep wishing and waiting.

2. Your thunders will help you run up hills, catch robbers, and chase after the bus

I know we may laugh and it sounds like i’m bashing our thick thighs, but lets be real – big legs are the effing BOMB. Umm, how many robbers have you chased down and tackled because your strong legs helped propel you towards him?

Well, yea, zero for me as well. BUT in my imaginative fantasies, I always catch them. (Come on, i’m not the only one who fantasizes about running down a thief!)

3. If you ever take a photo sitting down, your thighs will be the star of the show.

As a sports model and Insta-hoe, i’m usually taking running, stretching, or jumping shots. Sometimes we’ll do some sitting down, or as the photographers like to say “act like you’re relaxing, being casual.”

Unsurprisingly, these photos are never the ones that are used. All you can see are quads, quads, and more quads. Eventually you’ll learn how to shift, torque, and position your body so that perhaps your thighs will only take up 40% of the photo, instead of 80%.

4. You’ll never lose any food because you’ll always catch it in your lap

Lots of things get stuck in there, but that just means you’ll have a snack for later! Also it means holding more snacks in your lap on movie night because there is more surface area for balance. Win-win.

5. Pencil skirts look great – until you have to start walking

Work in a corporate job? If you’re a lover of the pencil skirt, then you know exactly what i’m talking about. A perfectly modest, knee length, navy blue pencil skirt quickly turns into an outfit you’d see in a sketchy back alley as soon as I start walking. I don’t know how I haven’t been reported to HR yet, but i’m sure it’s bound to happen soon.

6. You’ll never be able to pull off your boyfriends jeans as actual Boyfriend Jeans

Something about guys that can pull off skinny jeans better than me just really gets me going. Weird right? Who knows. I wish I could rock them as well as my boyfriend.

However, he likes my big legs and I like his skinny legs, so we’re basically a match made in heaven. The only downside is I can never borrow his jeans, although I do have a hidden stash of his shirts tucked away just for me 😉

7. Your inner thighs know sweat better than any other part of your body

Guys. The sweat is REAL. Get ready to wipe down cheap plastic seats on the bus, because your legs are creating their own little moat around your body. It’s embarrassing and slippery, and something that you will have to deal with.

That also could be a function of me just being an extremely sweaty human… but i’m just gonna blame this one on da quads.

8. Soon you’ll learn that having big thighs is a blessing, not a curse, and you’ll learn to love everything that they can do for you

I used to hate how big my thighs were. Growing up I saw them as a hindrance to rocking skinny jeans, and another reason for creepy men to whistle at me. It wasn’t till later in life when I started to get serious about rugby, working out, and staying fit, that I realized how much value they could bring to me.

They were muscular, powerful, good for tackling, and looked DOPE in leggings. Maybe I couldn’t wear a tight skirt without looking slightly prostitute-esque, (that didn’t mean I didn’t still wear em!), but I could kick ass on a bike, and run up and down stairs for hours.

LADIES. Learn to love your ‘imperfections,’ cause I swear to you – they are not. They are gifts that your body has given you, and if you just change your mindset, you will see how much HAPPIER these small things can make you.

    Every one of these is on point. I have very severe “horseback thighs” and I used to hate them, but I’ve come to love them. Plus, they look rockin’ when I wear heels!

    I just stumbled across your blog and as a guy, I’ve been totally unaware of all of this. Every picture featured was of a gorgeous woman and thighs were unbeknownst to me. Please don’t search for deficiencies. We’re not noticing and you’re too wonderful to create your own shortcomings. Stay beautiful and much love!
