Body Blog: Inner Thigh Gap

Although it’s probably not the most realistic way to measure health or fitness, a lot of girls have become obsessed with achieving that space between your thighs. Cassey Ho, Pop Pilates instructor on Youtube, shows us the easiest way to get that look. Trust me, these will make you burn!

      What is an inner thigh gap?? Just when you stand up with your feet hip distance apart and your thighs don't touch? If that is it, that is so silly! I have curvy (but toned thighs, thank you hot yoga!) and guys love them!

      1. dr. feelgood says:

        not all girls want their thighs rubbing together.

    2. milarie says:

      yes! yes! yes! thank you so much for this post i needed it!😀

    3. Carrieanne says:

      Thanks for sharing this! The inner thigh gap is like a mythical creature in my life.

    4. Joyce says:

      I have very muscular thighs, so the whole "touching" thing is useless for me

      Is this not, in some way, promoting eating disorders?? Having the infamous inner thigh gap (legs together at the knees with a little space between the thighs) is usually seen only on very thin women or anorexics. Maybe this website ought to promote the fact that having an inner thigh gap doesn't equal being healthy—especially since college women are one of the most at risk demographics for eating disorders.

      1. Lily says:

        Thats probably why there was a disclaimer in the beginning. It's just a name for a good leg workout. Chill out.

      2. Courtney says:

        Oooh, I think I get it. Working out is "bad" because it means you aren't happy with you. Forget that it might be healthy, give you energy, and boost endorphins (making you even more happy with you). No we just don't want to upset the defeated people, so we'll defeat the confident people and make it an even playing field.

      3. Rebecca says:

        They weren't denigrating people who work out for health reasons, or because they enjoy it. They were saying you shouldn't promote an unrealistic and unhealthy ideal body image.

      4. Casey says:

        Which is what exactly? Since we come in all shapes and sizes, naturally big, naturally small, naturally in-the-middle, how is a picture of a skinny girl exercising promoting an unhealthy image? Or telling people how to tone their legs unhealthy? Why is a picture of a heavy girl eating a hamburger not promoting an unhealthy image? It is, but no one's actually going to say it because you could damage her self esteem, (apparently skinny girls don't have self esteem issues) If that picture was posted and someone said, "she needs to put that down and eat some celery" that person would be vehemently attacked. It's the same thing as calling a skinny girl anorexic, or saying she needs to eat a cookie, but since they're "skinny" that's ok, because apparently they already have a leg up and we need to knock them down to size. You know you've seen it, we've all seen it, skinny girls get put down to raise larger peoples self esteem and it's just as wrong as calling someone fat.

      5. Duchess says:

        This is a ridiculous argument. "Skinny" is what is considered "acceptable" by the mainstream media. Skinny girls are the standard for beauty (look at any TV star, movie star, model, etc). To even begin to say that skinny girls are being discriminated against or face the same kind of judgement that larger girls do is not only ignorant but incredibly insensitive.

      6. Kenda says:

        It is just as insensitive to redicule a skinny girl for being skinny. They have feelings too. Skinny isn't just "acceptable", unless they are overly skinny, it is healthy. I think its not only ok what this blogger is doing but its great. She is facing opposition from a few in order to motivate many to take care of themselves be healthy. She doesn't say anything about not eating, it's just a workout.

      7. Freya says:

        The thing is that skinny girls are very very rarely ridiculed for being skinny. Where as even healthy girls who aren't skinny are often looked down upon and are seen in the media as being much less desirable. The point is that there are a range of natural and healthy shapes and sizes for women. We should work out to be healthy and look good, but looking good and being healthy doesn't *necessarily* mean being skinny.

        As a healthy skinny girl I have an inner thigh gap, but some of my friends who have different body shapes but are also healthy would have to loose weight to an unhealthy degree to achieve this. By putting forward only one type of body shape forward as healthy and desirable we *are* promoting an unhealthy attitude to body image. Now personally I don't think this article deliberately did that to too great a degree.

      8. Joan says:

        "The thing is that skinny girls are very very rarely ridiculed for being skinny. "
        Really? Where did you get this from? Maybe in media and the entertainment industry, no, they don't. But try real life, try different cultures. I'm naturally thin and this has been a struggle all my life. More often than not have I've been called "skinny" and it hasn't been meant as a compliment.

        I do agree with the rest of your post, though.

      9. Freya says:

        Fair enough, I made that comment based on my own experience and what I see in the media, Out of interest which cultures look down on skinny girls (that's not meant to be at all sarcastic I'm genuinely interested!).

      10. Joan says:

        I can only speak for my experience as well. Latin cultures (my culture) has a fixation for curvy. Being skinny isn't necessarily the norm. I don't know how many times I've been the center of "good hearted" skinny jokes, telling me to eat something (which I did, A LOT, thankyouverymuchmindyourownbusiness) or making fun of my food portions, etc.

        I actually felt a little bit weird when I started to work out. I wasn't doing it to lose weight, but I did want to be fit and eat healthier. Like you said, some people have trouble grasping the concept of body types and that skinny (or banana/pencil shape) IS one of those body types. There's no way on Earth that I'll ever have massive curves. That's just NOT going to happen. I'm ok with that, even when there's people who apparently are not. Beats me.

      11. Joan says:

        And as Duchess has beautifully demonstrated, not only do skinny girls DO have to deal with insensitive comments, but they seldom get the sympathy … just because they're skinny.

        Just as we all have different body types, we all have different types of struggles, and neither is more important or valid that the other. Let's respect each other and our differences, please. All sizes, all shapes.

      12. Casey says:

        Not anymore. Where the hell have you been? Glamour's using plus size models, there are loads of curvier actresses and roles cropping up; Drop Dead Diva, Ugly Betty, That movie with Queen Latifah and Common, Kim Kardashian. If you open your eyes and stop hating on everything maybe you'd realize that we ARE moving into a more shape-accepting society. Maybe not as quickly as you would like, but Rome wasn't built in a day, change takes time (come on Obama supporters, I'm sure you're the same ones arguing here!).

        However, at the same time larger shapes are becoming accepted we're seeing the old "standard" being put down in it's place. We're seeing it here, on this very board, how you can still deny that when the evidence is all around you is beyond me. But maybe you should take a step back from the fight, and take a look at the changes taking place around you.

      13. SkinnyBitch says:

        I really don't understand how this article is in ANY WAY promoting eating disorders?? This is talking about an exercise routine and has nothing to do with food.
        There is nothing wrong with having an inner thigh gap – I have one and im completely healthy, i dont have an eating disorder and i never have. You want to know how i lost weight and got the inner thigh gap? BY GETTING OFF MY ARSE AND EXERCISING!
        skinniness does not equal eating disorder and im sick of girls who ARENT thin using eating disorders as a way to attack smaller people. it would be really innappropriate for me to go up to someone who was slightly overweight and tell them they clearly had a compulsive eating disorder because they werent as thin as me, so why is it ok for you to assume that all smaller girls have eating disorders? its really annoying.
        this article promotes EATING DISORDERS?! you're an idiot.

      14. Jenna NYC says:

        You sound very ignorant about eating disorders. Eating disorders involve more than just difficulties with food, they involve an unhealthy body image and often involve excessive exercise to achieve this. Encouraging people to do a healthy amount of exercise obviously isn't promoting eating disorders. However you should do exercise to achieve a healthy weight and body for *you* not a very specific body type that is not natural or healthy for lots of girls.

        Nobody in any of the comments implied that being skinny was necessarily a bad or unhealthy body type to have it's just not the only healthy body type to have and for some girls it would be unhealthy. I suggest you think a little deeper and stop getting so hysterical.

        P.S. I'm size 0-2 depending on the store so I have no interest in putting down skinny girls.

      15. Kate says:

        an inner thigh gap is seen on HEALTHY WOMEN who exercise and burn fat by doing cardio. Would you like to see a picture, Anonymous? Because I certainly AM NOT Anorexic. Neither are other followers of Pop Pilates. WE ARE HEALTHY AND BEAUTIFUL WOMEN who enjoy working out and putting good food into our bodies.

      16. Kate says:

        Oh, and I am a college Sophomore. College doesn't equal being fat or gaining weight. If you take care of yourself, eat healthy alternatives in the school cafeteria/ food locations on campus, and actually MOVE around, you will not be at risk for an eating disorder. I have actually LOST weight since I began college because I saw the importance of working out in order to be strong, stress free, and have a healthy heart.

    6. Cassey says:

      Hey guys! This is Cassey over at Blogilates.com. I apologize if you feel like this is promoting eating disorders. The title is simply an "eye catcher" much like how I could title an abs workout "How to get a 6 pack". The moves are meant to tone your inner thighs, so whether or not you're looking to achieve a "gap" or get stronger thighs, these moves are effective and will get your sore. Let me know how it feels after you do it!

    7. Allison says:

      I love how every time a fit woman is shown, people are quick to call it an 'eating disorder'. Seriously…some people are ridiculous. Stop trying to hide behind you laziness.
      I do yoga and I jog, and I'm in very good shape and I have this gap. I can assure you it has nothing to do with an eating disorder, and everything to do with taking care of myself.😉

    8. Casey says:

      OMG Thank you! I played soccer for 10 years so my thighs are pretty toned, but I've never been able to find workouts that work the inner part and that is like the #1 area that irks me (hellooo sitting in shorts!)

      And to those complaining about this promoting eating disorders, Ummmm, this is a WORK OUT! It has nothing to do with eating, it's about toning, not burning calories. And while some girls may never be able to achieve this kind of body, due to genetics, for many of us it is healthy for us to look this way. So can we stop with the "OMG that's going to give someone an eating disorder!" and maybe go to the unstable girls and say "You're beautiful just the way you are!" Negativity helps NO ONE, positivity is the ONLY way to achieve results.

    9. Mara says:

      thank you! seriously! i've been looking for a good "at home" work out for my inner thighs but haven't had much luck. i'll definitely be giving this a try.

    10. Leiahna says:

      Dear "Anonymous" :
      If you really have enough time to sit around and look for ways to twist words and meanings to the total opposite of what they are actually saying, maybe you should first of all, do the workout cause someone so defensive about this subject obviously does not have the inner thigh gap, and then take your two cents to someone who really cares.

    11. kate says:

      this does not promote eating disorders. this promotes a HEALTHY lifestyle by incorporating exercise into your daily regimen. also, Cassey talks a lot about eating CLEAN foods and minimizing junk food. the INNER THIGH GAP is simply a catchy title for this workout. But, as a follower of Pop Pilates, this gets you an inner thigh gap!!!!!! An inner thigh gap simply means THOSE MUSCLES ARE WORKING AND BECOMING MORE TONED.

    12. Anna says:

      I think inner thigh gap has a lot more to do with genetics than it does eating disorders. It makes me think of the Apple shape vs. Pear shape. I tend to be an apple and can get slender thighs and rear no problem, but my middle section is my trouble spot. I have friends that can practically have six pack abs, but their thighs and rear are more shapely. These work outs are here to help you, take it or leave it.

    13. Sophia says:

      yes ofcourse. Working out and having a healthy lifestyle is having an eating disorder. Get a grip girl. You are just trying to find an excuse for being lazy and trying to make yourself feel better by ridiculing people who promote a ‘healthy lifestyle’ LAME!!!

    14. Casey says:

      I love how all the pro-workout/ anti-skinny hate comments on this article have thumbs down, even though most are written very positively and non-argumentative. Of course anything non-liberal, pro-skinny, pro-religion, anti-"fuck every guy you meet" will get a thumbs down on this site. Just a trend I'm noticing here. I guess the average liberal college woman isn't as accepting and open minded as they would like us to believe?

      *sits back and awaits the thumbs down*

      1. Freya says:

        Surely thumbs down is for comments you disagree with. I can disagree with someone without believing them to be argumentative or hate filled. Being open minded involves listening to alternative points of view but not necessarily agreeing with them. You just sound annoyed that this is a community that predominantly disagrees with you. If you have an alternative point of view by all means write it out in a calm rational manner, as an open minded liberal I'll read your comment and if I disagree with it I'll give it a thumbs down, perhaps you'll even change my mind – and get a thumbs up. But don't assume that everyone who disagrees with you does so because they're not open minded. You just weren't sufficiently convincing!

      2. Skya says:

        It's strange that you should say pro-Skinny. As a skinny-ish girl myself (size 4) I'm happy with my figure and have never met anyone or read any comments which are anti-skinny. However I wouldn't say I was pro-skinny. I am pro-healthy for everyone but that isn't necessarily skinny. Why would I want to encourage a naturally curvy girl to be skinny any more than anyone would encourage me to put on weight and become curvy?

        There's so much stuff in the media putting down people who aren't skinny, and as soon as someone says that being skinny isn't the only good body size to be, suddenly loads of bitchy skinny girls get offended.

      3. Casey says:

        I said pro-skinny because anytime there's a picture of a skinny girl working out on this website arguments like this ensue. I'm not saying people should be "pro-skinny" I'm just saying if a comment on this site advocates that a skinny girl in a picture might actually be healthy, someone will give it a thumbs down (So Freya, that means you disagree that skinny CAN equal healthy? And that Working out IS good for you?)

        No one said that skinny wasn't the only good body type to be, the argument started because a picture of a skinny girl working out was posted and someone said, "OMG! A skinny girl working out! That's going to give someone an eating disorder!" As if all the skinny people in the world need to go into hiding because if a fat girl looks at one they're going to immediately go throw up their lunch or starve themselves. THAT is the argument being made, that it's unacceptable for skinny people to be portrayed ANYMORE because it might give someone a disorder. I'm for equality for all sizes, which INCLUDES pro-healthy-skinny.

      4. Skya says:

        You've misunderstood the argument completely. People felt it promoted eating disorders not because it involved exercise or a picture of a slim woman, but because the title was "How to get an inner thigh gap". Some people felt that this implied that everyone wants/should have an inner thigh gap. This isn't about one article on it's own it's that almost all articles promote skinniness (i.e. get an inner thigh gap, loose weight etc) as the ONLY good body type. Most people will never develop an eating disorder whatever you print in articles like this anyway, we're talking about very small but still significant percentages.

      5. Casey says:

        And that's an argument I can give a thumbs up to. You may be right there. Although I don't think that was all there was to it, as I've seen many untitled workouts get the same response on this site. But as for this one, I did neglect the title. As someone who is naturally small, I saw the title and was excited, not aggravated, and all the disgust in the comments kinda brought me down, as if I'm wrong for wanting to tone my thighs. Can you maybe see how the degrading goes both ways?

      6. Skya says:

        Yeah I agree it would be just as bad to denigrate skinny girls and I think if you're healthy you should get to be proud of your figure especially if you've put effort into getting toned. Maybe you're right about people always putting down article because they happen to include exercise – I just haven't read any, but yeah saying exercise or naturally slim women = eating disorder would be really stupid.

      7. Freya says:

        When did I say that skinniness is always unhealthy? I just don't think you should dismiss everyone who disagrees with you as close minded. For example I'm an atheist but have lots of friends who are religious, I both accept and respect their beliefs, I just don't agree myself. Does this make me close minded or unaccpeting?

    15. Caroline says:

      For the record I don't think this article is too guilty of glorifying eating disorders, but a lot of the comments seem to miss the point. There are lots of article in magazines like this which say "get a thigh gap", "how to get a flat tummy", or "how to loose 20lbs". Now if you're over weight loosing 20lbs might be a good thing (although I would seek your Dr's advise rather than some one writing in Cosmo or college candy) and a sensible exercise regime and a healthy diet is a great idea for everyone.

      Personally I've always had a flat tummy without eating healthily or exercising and lots of my friends who are far healthier than me (involved in sport, ALWAYS eat healthily and never over eat) always carry a little more weight. So it seems to me that it would be better to have articles with titles like "how to improve your fitness" or "how to improve your diet" so that the goal of the exercise/diet is to be healthier rather than just skinnier. Skinny is not the same as healthy, some skinny people are healthy some are unhealthy, just as some curvy girls are healthy and some aren't. If you're curvy and healthy there's no reason you should want to loose weight, and just because you're skinny doesn't mean you don't need to improve your diet or exercise regime.

    16. Sophia says:

      So Freya, if you are so accepting, why is it hard for you to accept that some people do want thigh gaps in a healthy way, the way cassey says you can get it? The workout is for a specific demography and they have the right to be that way without being judged. Cassey never says you ‘should’ be that way, it always how you ‘can’ be that way if you ‘want’ it. Not exactly forcing it down your throat.

      1. Freya says:

        Hey I don't care if people want a thigh gap, that's healthy for some people. I just think it would be nicer to have a title that didn't only apply to a small proportion of readers. Lots of girls want to tone their thighs without the aim being an inner thigh gap which with the best diet and exercise regime in the world they're not going to achieve. Having said that I don't think this article is that bad, the title just isn't perfect that's all.

    17. Jillian says:

      I'm a follower of Cassey and Pop Pilates and I can say that, while the workouts are extremely challenging for any practitioner's level, they are effective in executing the purpose they serve. Doing one of her prescribed workouts will not make you thinner, but it WILL help you increase your muscle to fat ratio, burn a few calories, and create and define the muscles that everyone wishes they could have. It doesn't mean that you'll automatically have a flat stomach or a round butt as everyone's body is different, but you'll still be able to work out your muscles and keep them healthy and flexible. I'll also point out that Cassey is the first to tell you DURING her workout videos that you're not going to lose weight simply doing these workouts; they're just meant to tone. You have to eat clean and do cardiovascular workouts as well in order to even be able to see the abs you're sculpting or the thigh muscles you're tightening and slimming. Isn't that what we should all be doing anyway? Eating clean and working out our hearts?? Don't be so quick to attack fitness instructors or bloggers or generally healthy people because they enjoy working out and staying fit. I have several friends who struggle with borderline eating disorders that have actually been strengthened by listening to the way that Cassey talks about general health, rather than simply achieving a "look." We all know that not everyone can look like Heidi Klum or that infamous androgynous model type that litters the internet, but we CAN tackle, tone and strengthen areas on our own bodies that we do not feel comfortable with. Your perception and motive for working out/eating determines whether or not you're prone to an eating disorder, and Cassey's motives are pure: HEALTH and WELL-BEING.

      1. Casey says:

        You know, you raise an excellent point. "Your perception and motive for working out/eating determines whether or not you're prone to an eating disorder"

        Girls who are prone to an eating disorder will likely still develop an eating disorder regardless of how few, or how many pictures we post on the internet and in magazines. Because it's a desire within themselves to look a certain way. And I think what isn't often addressed in these discussions is why girls have the desire to be skinny, and I think it has a lot less to do with the media and other women than we think. I think more-so it has to do with attracting a certain kind of attention. We don't need magazines and the internet to tell us what body type is most desirable by men, if you attended a public school you lived it first hand. The skinny pretty girls get the male attention. And men aren't taking their cues from fashion magazines and girlie blogs.

        If we want to put a stop to the behavior, we need to start marketing in the right places. It's not about changing what WE see, because we're not competing with each other for each other. We need to change the male preference for what they consider "sexy" and "appealing" so they will start paying attention to different types of girls and w wont feel the need to change ourselves to compete with the girl next to us.

        And that's not to say that women's motives are purely for men, but we're sexual creatures, and when a skinny woman is a mans ideal and another woman sees that, they're going to look at that other woman and want to be that ideal so they get the male attention. It's Darwin's survival of the fittest at its finest.

        Just a theory, but I think the feminist approach to "work within ourselves to create change" hasn't, isn't, and doesn't work. We're a 2 part society made up of males and females, and we cant just change amongst ourselves, the change has to be fluid throughout society, or it goes nowhere.

      Thank you so much for this post! I have been trying to lead a healthier and more active life. Articles like this remind me that it's easy to spend a few minutes to work out in the privacy of my own home. I could only do this rotation TWICE, not the four times suggested. That's okay though, I have a new goal – to be able to make it through this workout 4 times. I'm not so much concerned with having an "inner thigh gap", I just want some exercises that are easy to do, require little to no equipment, and provide a challenge. This fits all three! Thanks again! Hopefully within a few weeks I'll be stronger and can make it through the rotation 4 times instead of 2!

      Wow. I can’t even begin to tell these ladies what’s wrong with most of the comments that where made. I was randomly looking up this gap business and ended up here. I wanna say to the female who think that skinny girls get more attention by men; L.O.L.!!!! Are you CRAZY?!! What we all need to realize & accept is not everyone as attracted to the same body type & you are SADLY mistaken if you think that’s actually true. Let me say this as example, I’m 5’2 – 146lbs @19yrs old. It’s NOT muscle weight either, I’m a good 26lbs over weiGht even in our “big” country of america but I wear my weight well. Large TONED chest, big hips & big backside w thighs. I STILL have this “mysterious” gap. I got news for you females who thinkmen prefer the thin girls over everyone else.. They don’t. They’re attracted to our attitudes & the way we carry ourselves. Other GIRLS say they wish they where as amall as me but I tell them my weight & they never believe me. It not about how much you weigh or how thin you are it’s about how you CARRY your weight. + that attitude of yours. We should want to be healthy for the sake of our lives, not only for the way we look. That’s so sad to see real females out there in the world say the things I’ve read here. I’m used to being 115lbs but literally, my whole body shape stays exactly the same, I just get those extra inches. Except my chest, this is all natural & I keep my upper body toned so that never changes (large C). I think I look better with a little weight on me anyway , we all need to remember to keep healthy mindstates & (hopefully) the rest will follow. THAT’S what men flock to. Just sayin.

    24. bunnybrite says:

      Also…there are just people out there who are just attracted to curvy women & big women. Just like some men like thin muscular girls, some men want something more juicy. Some men like tall women, some like short. Some people are attracted to light eyes some dark. Light, dark or vibrant neon colored / long, short / up-do or down hair. Some men want a naturally tan-raced woman others want light race women with or without a tan. Wide thin lips or plump & full. Freckles or none. Nail polish vs bare. Sacral dimples or face dimples? Do you SERIOUSLY THINK all a man initially cares about is how thin, thick or big a women is? We wonder why they don’t get us…we don’t get all of them. Were all different. Find comfort in that fact & you’ll do just fine

    26. rachel says:

      okay everyone whose talking about how this is promoting eating disorders etc, yes people are beautiful in absolutely any size, no matter if they have that “inner thigh gap” or not, but this is obviously a web page with a work out on it…for people who would like to maybe tone up a little bit. i wanted to read the comments to see if it worked or not, because i myself would like to tone up a bit before summer, and all i see is some nonsense about how this is promoting serious eating disorders like anorexia. just because you want to work out and have thinner legs doesnt mean that your anorexic. anorexia is a serious thing, but this has nothing to do with it. it is just a work out.

    27. Lily says:

      I just wanted to look at the comments for results on this workout but some of you guys are honestly idiots. If you're making a big fuss about how big girls are beautiful are you saying skinny girls are ugly? That thin girls are disgusting? You are being as bad as those who look down on your "curvy woman" perspective, maybe even WORSE seeing as you can only accept one thing, but not the other. HEY, in fact, why can't ALL women be beautiful and gorgeous and happy, skinny or curvy? How about that? Also, it's pretty insensitive to people who DO in fact have eating disorders. Really. Chill.

    30. Maddison says:

      Yes, so I'm 15 and I would like an inner thigh gap, it doesn't mean I have body/eating issues. In fact I love food and have never really been fussed about my body because I'm so young it shouldn't matter. But lately I haven't exactly been feeling all that great about myself and I thought, seeing as life is simple as long as you tackle your problems head on and honestly, I thought it wise to take it into my own hands and try to TONE UP (heavy abbreviations on the tone up part), and so I am here. Yeah sure, everyone's beautiful in their own way but that doesn't mean they see it. As long as you look at weight loss with a level head it should never get out of hand. People should stop jumping to conclusions because your stereotyping women and men, when the majority are only fussed because it's pushed onto us.

      Why are there so many "curvy" women hating on this thread? Just because some people want to be toned and fit doesn't mean they have eating disorders and etc. I always see so many so-called "curvy" women on health threads with this whole "I don't need anyone, Im perfect and guys love me etc" attitude. It's one thing to be sassy/confident and comfortable in your own skin but another thing to be obnoxious about it. If you're medically diagnosed as overweight, then its unhealthy, so stop being in denial! Also, why are we arguing what men prefer? Everyone is different, but what is important is to be at a healthy weight rather than underweight or overweight….

      -_- I have a gap and I embrace and love it, gap or not though don't diss skinny girls or a workout, or even people who like to be healthy. If you don't like it why are you on this page in the first place? If it bugs you so much go post about it where people who care enough will agree with you. Big, skinny, normal, or toned who cares ? Just be HEALTHY and stop the hate.

      You cannot PROMOTE anorexia or an eating disorder… For many who suffer it, it is just as much a condition of the mind, if not more so. I never thought, hm let's stick my fingers down my throat and I'll make myself thin and beautiful. I agree some people can look at eating disorders and think, oh well they work, but they don't have the condition of the mind to keep them in it. Certainly a lot of people who suffer have been induced by some traumatic life event.
      Secondly, if you watched the actual video, you'd see that Cassey is a beautiful woman with a healthy physique, she promotes clean eating and cardio. Not starving or otherwise. I think people who throw around statements such as those on this thread are ignorant of the condition and have little to no experience of it. For one did you know there are more than the two common conditions, anorexia and bulimia, but ED-NOS and purging disorder? probably not.
      Final point that this does not promote eating disorders… it is more likely that someone with an eating disorder will actively seek out workout routines but that is not the fault of the video. Nor the fault of the person seeking it out, that is their lifestyle. People should be more sensitive towards it.

      I am a curvier girl, and I don't think that having a gap between is really that big of a deal. Yes, some guys do prefer thicker legs. (Mostly black guys) But you can be skinny and absolutely gorgeous as well. As long as you're healthy…

      LADIES, whether your ‘skinny’ or ‘fat’ you’ll always get critiscism! And don’t say skinny girls never get picked on, my sister is about 5′ 10″ and her legs are about the size of my upper arm I’m 5′ 4″ and 140 about average size, and at a fitting for a show she was in, the lady (who was a bit overweight) actually made her go home and cry for about 2 hours!! She constantly commented how she was so skinny, oh how would we find something to wear, just too skinny etc. And to the curvier plus sizees you’re beautiful and so are skinny girls and so is everyone in between.

      I’ve been doing this workout everyday for the past 3 weeks and I’m pretty sure my legs are getting toned. I know a thigh gap doesn’t signify beauty, I just wanted to tone my thighs and if that comes along well hey! Exercise and healthy eating really reap benefits, I’m 16 and I had an eating disorder. Not anorexia or bulimia, but binge eating disorder. It’s eating constantly all day when your bored or stressed. I’m monitoring my diet to not eating anything not needed and keeping a 1200-1500 cal/day diet. It’s been hard but I noticed it got out of hand about a month ago. That was the first time I’d really been on a scale for about a year. Now I researched healthy weights/bmis for my height and asked a doctor and I’m pretty close to getting overweight. I was 146 when I realized and have had a couple lapses, but I’m determined to get back to a regular weight of about 130, though I’d love to be at 120 where I’ve been at for years with my height.

      I have very strong legs for ballet. But I find that my inner thigh is not strong and well not pretty, however still stronger than the average teen. will theses still work on me? And will they really give me a thigh gap? (bonus is yes)

      Hmmm…. I have thigh gap naturally I think. I admit, my legs are rather toned from tennis, but other than that I really don't exercise that much. I'm 5'4" and about 100-105 pounds…. I'm not sure what my thigh gap is from. I barely have any curves and I'm already 14. How embarrassing is it to be the only girl in your grade who still doesn't fit into a bra? Trust me. Sometimes it sucks to be skinny.

      I have always had that gap since i was a toddler. I never really thought it was a big deal. I am 15 and I am 5’2 and i wiegh 107 lbs.
