Chubby Knees!

Despite being a slim size 8, Ive always had quite chubby knees (yes I know...its a funny thing to pick up on!). It might be me being too critical, but there's no harm in self-improvement! Im just wondering (obviously without using surgery) if there are any specific exercises that may help, or is it just genes to blame?
Thanks,
River

Are you sure? I mean isn't a photography based forum the best place to get legal, medical and spiritual guidance?
If you want to build a ship, don't drum up the people to gather wood, divide the work, and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea.

As in pre-patella bursitis?

Doubt it. Wrong kind of shape and also painful, so she probably has chubby knees. Better than having Spike Milligan's knees. QV. Puckoon.
Young people, don't bother, I acn't be ar*ed to explain.

Genes I'd say.
I've got my Pops' legs complete with knobbly, chubby knees. I don't worry about it.

I find its the best place to ridicule legal, medical and spiritual guidance.

Not really a lot you can do...It's mainly hereditary/genes. Shy of getting some definition in your quads, you're probably being overly self-critical. The one problem with working your quads is they'll look quite muscley...which would alter your look. As to the positive/negative impact of that, it's down to you.

I'd leave 'em...though.

Lots of glamour models in the past have had less than perfect legs...so they just did 3/4 length shots...
I wouldn't worry too much... You are a beautiful young lady!
