  • Why do u want it? and depending on bone structure and like where your body keeps it fat it might be impossible to still be healthy having one but if you're doing it to get guys well stop like slry not a SINGLE DAMN GUY CARES IF A GIRL HAS A THIGH GAP OR NOT.

  • 1. Eat healthy!! no processed foods, portion control, no junk food, no juice, limit alcohol consumption.

    2. low impact cardio, like walking, rowing, swimming, cycling, olyptical, dancing, etc.. 30 to 60 min a day, 5 days a week.

    3. Yoga, 30 - 45 min. 2 or 3 times a week.

    4. Lift heavy weights with low reps, including squats. Choose efficient exercises that work multiple muscle groups. 1 time ever 6 or 7 days.

    5. 15 to 20 min HIIT 1 time per week.

    Make this a life style and you will have and maintain the body of a goddess.

  • I'd say it's about 80% genetics and 20% "working" for it. Some people really can't have a thigh gap unless they become literally malnourished. Starving yourself and essentially killing your own body is not ok. Most of it is based on your bone structure; the width and build of your hips. If you have really thick thighs due to being overweight, you *might* get a thigh gap if you lose some of that weight (in a healthy way), but there really is no guarantee.
    At the end of the day I don't think stressing over thigh gaps is worth it. People won't automatically think you're hot if you have one, nor will people automatically think you're ugly without one. Getting a thigh gap won't magically fix your issues with your confidence. If you somehow end up getting one, your lack of self-esteem will move on to the "next" problem and you'll end up obsessing over something else. So I'd say work on your confidence instead of trying to morph your body into looking a certain way. In the long run you'll be much happier once your confidence starts to grow.

  • To my knowledge there's no healthy way to achieve a thigh gap. It is largely based on your skeletal structure and amount of muscle/fat. I've talked to different guys throughout the years because I was self conscious of my thighs (they're pretty big and always have been). Not one of them said they preferred thigh gaps, in fact, most of them had no idea thigh gaps even existed.

  • I've literally checked out a bajillion girls' bodies and never in my life have I ever payed attention to or willfully browsed for a thigh gap. They make literally no difference to a girl's level of attractiveness. If anything, they make a girl LESS attractive because she'd generally have to be thin as bones to be able to attain one.

    The girl's body in the pic you posted is about a 4 in terms of sex appeal (on a scale of 1 to 10).

  • Sorry to break it to you, but apparently thigh gaps are genetically predetermined. Only people with wide hip frames develop them. They are unattainable if you don't have those prerequisites. There may be surgery to change that in the future, but currently there are none.

  • Butterfly pose. It's a yoga exercise. You can see examples on YouTube. Basically, u sit and place your feet together. Grab your feet with your hands and bounce your legs up and down. Don't overdo it. Maybe 10 or 20 minutes a day the first couple weeks. It should open your hips and strengthen your inner thigh muscles.

  • Don't stress over something as meaningless as a thigh gap. First of all, it's a stupid fashion trend and it's not even hot. Second of all, I doubt it's possible to get unless you have it naturally. I would rant about how body ideals are bullshit and that striving towards them is unnecessary because they're impossible to achieve, but I don't have time to. Instead I'll just leave you with this: Literally nobody other than you cares about whether you have a thigh gap or not.

  • Don't worry about trivial stuff about that. Worry about maintaining thicc thighs so your significant other will have something to lay down on. And you can have the absolute territory with that little pudge of your thigh that spills out when wearing stockings. Worry about that

  • Genetics mostly, if your both the same weight you probably won't have the wide hips that will allow it. it's all about where your legs are joined on to the hips and the angle of your thighs.

  • Honestly a thigh gap isn’t that important you could have one but most guys won’t stare at it some may have a fetish’s over it but majority wouldn’t even notice it you’ll still look beautiful with or without it

    Some say the thigh gap is a symbol that they ain’t virgins no more I don't know if that’s true

  • You can work for it. You c an hit the gym or do some leg exercises. Squats, one legged squats, lunges, walking lunges, jogging, leg press, calf extensions. There’s lot of work you can do to attain that

    • Ever heard of the term "the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence"? By your logic, it must mean the home owner only wishes to have the other home, so all the neighbours will compliment him on his beautiful home, not because he finds that other home truly beautiful himself.

    • I dont mind them. but i think that if you dont baturally have one you shouldn't be unhealthy to get one

  • I don't understand why it's such a big deal. As long as you're healthy, I don't think it matters.

    • It's a thigh gap regardless.

    • Totally not the same so different name, different thing.

    • Yeah, diamond gap is for women who are at a healthy weight and body fat percentage, thigh gaps are owned mostly by underweight women and looks bad

  • Mainly genetics. Other than that, diet and exercise, sis.

  • Why would you even want it? If you mean that diamond gap then you just have to be at a healthy weight and wear clothes that highlight it. If it's the one that goes down your knees I don't understand why you'd want brackets between your legs... it's not worth losing your boobs and ass to have something that doesb't even look that good.

  • Okay, sometimes it’s based on genetics and other times, it’s not. I had a super small thigh gap before and began doing exercises and I achieved a nice one I guess. It’s actually not hard. Search up “Thigh gap exercises” on google images and choose a routine. That’s what I did and it worked. Also, most people don’t even notice it, like no one really cares if you have one or not, you’re beautiful the way you are and you don’t need one to be perfect. 😁

  • its called lipo. the majority of people, no matter how hard they try, don't have one. i am 15 lbs over weight and mine is awesome. it is a genetic thing. i carry my weight around my belly. trust me, id rather have a tiny waust then a thigh gap, but that's how god made me. you can NOT redistribute fat cells without surgery. the only way to lose that is to lose over all weight. this could make you look ugly other places that need fat and make you unhealthy though.

  • It’s mostly based on bone structure. Doctors usually agree that it’s unhealthy for people who don’t have one naturally to try to get one, because they usually have to starve themselves to get one.

  • So I thought it had to do with weight but I guess it doesn't, it it just my personal experience. If I put on weight my goes away but if I lose it, it returns. I don't know... maybe because I'm shorter it does that?

  • Some girls have them naturally because their hips are really wide, others have them because they’re just that skinny. Why do you want one though? I have one for the latter reason and people tell me that they find my legs too skinny all the time so I don’t really think it’s a preferred look

  • Depending on a person's height, and weight a thigh gap can or can't be possible. Some people can achieve it others can't without getting underweight. If getting a thigh gap goes under her weight limit she shouldn't try for it. Naturally healthy ones are fine, but forced ones nah.

    • Why do. girls want thigh gap?

    • @guyask12 because a lot of girls have fat thighs and they want to slmi them down. I guess the thought of thighs touching means you are fat. I know stupid.

  • oh honey you don't want one, seriously you can't catch ANY food with your thighs if you have one! it's tragic really. thick thighs save lives is true.
