Re: My very, very skinny ankles!

I have the exact same problem! im now 20 and i refuse to wear capris or any shorts that hit mid length around my knees. When i wear short shorts or something extra short it almost looks more in balance because my thighs are bigger so it takes the focus off my ankles i feel. But yes i can also wrap my fingers around my ankle and have space left over! I HATE IT! i want to know if there are exercises that i can do to get muscle there? People say its such a blessing to be naturally thin but honestly id do anything to have normal non chicken legs. i hate taking pictures in shorts i look so odd! i hear pregnancy is the only way to combat skinny ankles. but i am not willing to give birth in order to gain some fat around my ankles. haha. help!
