My very, very skinny ankles!

Hello, how are you?
I was wondering if you could help me out...ok here goes:
I am about 5ft2 tall which is kinda small for a 18 year old girl! However, I have a lot of "curves" let's say! lol (I'm not overweight, i'm a normal weight, but i'm talking about my chest!!) Nyhoo, all my life i never wanted to wear shorts or skirts, because my ankles are so tiny i can put my fingers around them!(if i was to take a picture of my ankles, you'd think they were an 8 year old girl's ankles!) I would say i have normal thighs, maybe a bit thick, and my very very skinny ankles make my legs look like chicken drumstick! Once i took the courage to wear shorts to college, and my friend said to me "Oh My Gosh you have very skinny ankles!" which made me more conscious of myself!I remember once in High School, when changing into my PE kit, another one of my friend laughed and said " what happened to your ankles?" I also went to holidays, and wore shorts, but when i saw pictures it made me even more conscious, and now i REFUSE to wear shorts or skirts!Sometimes my sisters even tell me my ankles are too skinny compared to my body! Can you please PLEASE tell me how comes they are like that, and what can i do to make them thicker and in shape with my body (which i still really like!lol) I know this is a long message, but please help me!!!

Pro-Tec Athletics' J-Lat Knee Support helps guide the patella back into proper alignment with gentle pressure from the lateral to medial direction. Compression surrounding the patella will help keep it in the patella-femoral groove.
