Under knee dimples

Bit of a weird one. I hate my legs, always have. Don't normally have photos taken where you can see my legs.
Looking through some holiday picture and I have big dimples below my knees. Is this normal? Looking at the pictures with OH in and he doesn't have them.
Is it because I have lots of fat around my knees? Is it just a structure thing?
I haven't noticed it on anyone else.
Like I said, bit of a weird one. Thanks

It's just the way you are, I've not got them but maybe plenty of other MNetters have. I shouldn't worry too much, you look great to me!

Your legs are gorgeous and I love your dimples. I'm not an expert but to me they look like the dimples you get on your lower back.

I remember a friend saying to me once that she wanted to lose weight to get those dimples. She wasn't very impressed when I admitted that I had them (I was a bit bigger than her) and that they're not weight related-you either have them or not.!

Ahh thanks Buster Dr Google was bringing up all sorts of things like muscle wastage and knee injuries.

I have quite prominent back dimples so maybe I'm just a dimply person grin

I have no back dimples either!

I have the exact same thing!! I went looking for an explanation and came upon your photos and me leg dimples are exactly the same. I haven't been able to find an explanation online as of yet. What I have noticed it is more obvious when my body is swollen. I am in good weight and fairly fit but I suspect there is something I'm eating that does not do me well...I can feel it on my joints, especially my fingers and hips, and then those funny looking dimples show up. I would love to hear if someone else had figured it out!
