Thick Thigh Problems That Are Super Relatable

They say that thick thighs save lives, but do you know when else they do? They destroy jeans, they take up way too much room on airplanes, they bump into things, and they chafe like it’s nobody’s business.

If you have thick thighs, you probably also have thick thigh problems. Keep reading to see what people with thick thighs are discussing on the internet.

You Become An Expert Seamstress

If you have thick thighs, you either have to learn how to sew, or you have to buy new pants every two weeks.

It’s one or the other. There is no in-between.

When you have thick thighs, wearing shorts is an issue. Even when you think you’ve found the perfect pair, they do you dirty like this.

No matter how long or how tight the shorts are, they always ride up leaving your thighs vulnerable to painful chafing. Ouch.

On The Bright Side

Having thick thighs isn’t all bad. There are a lot of benefits to being a little bit thicker.

There’s more room on your lap when you have bigger thighs, which means more space for puppies.

To us, it seems like that just means there’s more to love. Also, be careful, we could burn you down with our thigh fires.

The jeans can only hold out for so long.

That Thing They Do

When you stand up and you look down at your thighs, they look pleasantly plump.

Then you sit down and all hell breaks loose. There’s thigh all over the place.

Can skinny girls use their legs as a table? We didn’t think so. Thick thighs save lives and plastic cups.

It’s Been A Long Day

This is what happens to thick thighs after they’ve been trapped inside a pair of ripped jeans all day.

The indentations are real. We know this feeling all too well

Thick thighs can put a lot of strain on those flimsy belt loops. It might be time to break out the sewing kit.

One Or The Other

The problem with having thick thighs is that you always have to make tough decisions.

Would you rather have pants that fit your thighs or your waist? You can only choose one.

Having thick thighs means there’s more room for snacks on your lap. We count that as a win.

Do you know what’s better than a thigh gap? How about those dimples that you get on your hips when you have thick thighs?

Baby Powder All Day

Thick-thighed girls know the struggle of wearing skirts or dresses without shorts on underneath them.

Sometimes baby powder is all that’s standing between you and days of chub rub pain.

That Chafing Feeling

One thing us thick-thighed folks cannot escape is the chafe. It follows us everywhere we go.

You think you’re going to outsmart it with a pair of biker shorts, but nope.

A Little Trick

If you’re a thick-thighed girl and you don’t know about the deodorant trick yet, you need to get on this hype train.

Sometimes deodorant works even better than baby powder.

Thigh-High Boots

When you get a certain size in thigh-high boots, that size really only accounts for the size of your foot.

The boot manufacturer wasn’t expecting the thickest thighs in the game.

Thigh-High Socks

You know that feeling when thigh-high socks become just over-the-knee socks? This girl knows the feeling well.

We just want warm thighs, people! Is that too much to ask?

The Back Gap

This gap problem happens because we have to buy jeans that are big enough to fit our thighs.

But when we do that, they’re too big to fit our waists.

Ripped Already

If you have thick thighs and you buy a ripped pair of jeans, you do so at your own risk.

You know it’s only a matter of time before those rips get even bigger.

Must Be Nice

This girl doesn’t have thick thighs. Look how much room she has on this airplane seat.

We’re not saying we don’t appreciate the extra junk in the trunk, but it would be nice to have some more legroom.

Discontinued Leggings

This girl was absolutely in love with her Old Navy leggings that held up through years of walking through cities and sitting in cars, and now they’ve finally bitten the dust.

Oh, and Old Navy discontinued them.

Not A Romper

You know your thighs are thick when somebody compliments you on a romper that isn’t actually a romper.

We’ve all done that skirt tuck trick in desperate situations. It doesn’t really work.

Let The Stick Begin

For everyone else, summer means shorts season. For thick-thighed gals, it means enduring that horrible feeling of peeling your legs off of plastic chairs.

We’re shuddering just thinking about it.

Those Sewing Skills

If you’re a thick-thighed person and you don’t know how to sew, you better learn. Invest in a good sewing machine and get patching.

While you’re at it, maybe you could design some jeans that don’t rip.

When This Happens

It starts out with a little hole that you don’t think anyone will notice.

But then before you know it, your entire inner thigh is exposed while you’re just sitting at your desk minding your own business.

Hanging By A Thread

These shorts are about to fall all the way off. They are literally hanging on by a thread.

At least the rip frames her tattoo nicely. Those are some nice roses.

Bursting At The Seams

These jeans can barely handle all of the thigh that’s in them right now.

Those seams look like they’re about to burst. We could use some stronger thread over here.

The Running Short Dilemma

Either you can get men’s basketball shorts that cover your entire leg, or you can try to get cute biker shorts.

But they’re just going to ride up and become booty shorts.

Clapping For Me

If you’ve ever run in shorts, then you have heard the sound of your thighs “cheering you on,” as they say.

It’s not a very pleasant sound, but hey, it’s better than chafing.
