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

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.

Are you sure? I mean isn't a photography based forum the best place to get legal, medical and spiritual guidance?


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.

Just Sayin'...

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!
However...
This might be of help River...http://forums.vogue.com.au/archive/index.php/t-144305.html

It really could be worse imagine if you had a big nose!!!!!! chubby knees are not the end of the world. I also have nothing against big noses.

Thigh muscle exercises will tighten the knees above the knee cap, as it is all interconnected.
Having had physiotherapy for my knee in my younger years I know a bit about this, and it works.
EG cross trainer, rowing machine or leg lifts that use the big muscle on your thigh , you should be able to feel the tension to get benefit from it.

Having looked at your photos, don't think you have anything to worry about but if are conscious of it, this may help.

And somethings you just have to accept, knees are hardly worth worrying about !!!!

Tell you one thing River, it sure isn't water on the knee...I had that when 22...was walking through a shopping mall and a shop frontage fell on top of me...remember praying that I hadn't broken my neck...the people there moved me, and shouldn't have, before the ambulance arrived. Thankfully ALL I received was a very painful, swollen, few weeks of water on the knee...

None of your lovely pictures reflect the fact you think you have chubby knees...You are a super  natural looking gorgeous model.devil
