Even though it’s become a sign of beauty for many women, the thigh gap has little to do which how much you starve yourself and more to do with your bones. The angle of the femoral neck and the pelvic width are the actual causes of it, not your BMI, so skinny without a thigh gap is more common than you think. Luckily, there are many singers, models and actresses without a thigh gap who know that.

If you already have a thigh gap and you just need to accentuate it by dropping a few pounds, that’s great, but most celebrities without a thigh gap are gorgeous without it. While many size 0 models have slim thighs, being thin doesn’t automatically mean being beautiful.
