# Girls, do you have the ideal legs? Let's test the 5-3-2 theory. How will you compare?

Girls, do you have the ideal legs? Apparently if you match these magical measurements, then you have the perfectly proportioned legs that will make guys wild! Ready to test?
You need to find a tape measure and somewhere to note these 3 girth measurements:
1) measure the top of your thigh (not wedged up so high that you are measuring your butt/hips, but the biggest meatiest part of your upper leg),
2) measure the biggest part of your calf,
3) measure the smallest part of your ankle, up above the ankle bone.
Now you can calculate how close you are to the 5-3-2 ratio. Unfortunately, a little mathematics is involved-sorry!

Let's do an example: you measure and have a thigh measurement of 22.5", calf of 13.5" and ankles of 9". Do the math and you will see that this hypothetical female has the perfect 5-3-2 ratio. Another way to simplify the math of 5-3-2: your calf should be 1.5 times your ankle, and your thigh should be 2.5 times your ankle, and therefore your thigh should be 1.667 times your calf.

Please note down your results in the comments. Also say if you think your legs have good proportions in your opinion, and if the 5-3-2 ratio is on point - or way off.

Now for part 2 of this discussion - is the ratio wrong? To me it seems that a woman with a little thicker/more muscular legs would be more attractive.
That may be just my tastes talking, but I believe our society is trending in that direction. For example, would a 8-5-3 ratio be better? Then your calf should be 1.667 times ankle, your thigh would be 2.667 times your ankle, and therefore your thigh should be 1.6 times your calf. In that case our hypothetical female with 9" ankles should have 24" thighs and 15" calves to look 'perfect'.
