as a half okinawan woman…. the term “daikon legs” does NOT refer to cellulite.. it refers to shins/calves that are in the shape of daikon. lol.
I agree with johnelle, it refers to the shape of your calves not cellulite.
I know because my ex-boyfriend called me daikon legs when we were breaking up. I have no cellulite, but I am a skinny girl with what I consider “shapely” calves. It’s definitely calves shaped like daikon.
Johnelle, you are so right!
I’m hapa too, and I have daikon legs!
It refers to women’s legs that are, as my obaasan says, “Shapely, like a bull”, meaning that they are muscular!
