A new A new term I discovered, which means basically — fat ankles. Mine have always been on the heavier side, not really in proportion to my legs and calves.
I'm here to say cankles are hereditary. My weight is on the low side of normal, and yet the cankles persist. Here's the actual urban definition according to WillRunForCake:
Subject: Cankles: Urban Word of the Day
“The area in affected female legs where the calf meets the foot in
an abrupt, nontapering terminus; medical cause: adipose tissue
surrounding the soleus tendon, probably congenital, worsened by weight
gain and improved in appearance only by boots. From the English “calf”
meaning wide portion of the lower leg, and “ankle” meaning slender
joint of leg with foot."
Anklets are a love of mine, but I have to search for a style that won't cut off my circulation.
My cankles look great in high heels, but in flip flops–not so much.
When I was pregnant, my OB said I looked like I was carrying 5 pounds of water in each one. Which actually cracked me up because she was right. She is the bluntest person I ever met, which is why I love her (it was her way of saying – cut down on the salt will ya lady!)
But you know, I've learned to live with them, and love them actually.
After all they are a part of me, and without them I would feel like something is missing from "me"
So if you've got 'em – flaunt 'em baby!
