What are “Cankles”?

Cankle or Cankles refers to the lack of definition between the ankle and calf, especially in women. It is seen as a cosmetic issue, but for some it can cause embarrassment and diminish their confidence.

Sometimes also referred to Lipoedema, it refers to the abnormal build up of fat cells in the legs, buttocks and ankles. It can be painful for some and can get worse gradually if left untreated.
