Why are the Outer Thighs a Problem Area?

The outer thighs are a problem area primarily because they are a likely culprit for storing unwanted body fat. Additionally, the appearance and size of the outer thighs has a distinct effect on the shape and silhouette of the body as a whole. Having slim and slender outer thighs tends to make the body appear longer and leaner. When there are bulges on the outer thighs, it can be unflattering in clothing.

The outer thighs store fat due to genetics, lifestyle, or exercise regime. If you are someone with a body type that naturally holds weight in the outer thighs, it can be difficult to control fat loss there using diet and exercise. It seems even as the thighs get smaller, the shape and/or bulge of excess fat in the outer thigh can stubbornly hold its shape. Because the outer thighs are notorious for this, people suffering from excess fat in that area have nicknamed them “saddlebags.”
