Your "thighs" are part of your legs. To be fair, Henry Cavill wasn't exactly wearing shorts in the film, so it's difficult to judge what kind of condition the lower part of his anatomy was in back then; and we already know that Cavill's body type allows him to look smaller in loose-fitting clothes. Remember how various Hype members jumped to conclusions, years ago, when he wore a white shirt (that did nothing to reveal his physique) to Comic-Con?

Unless the leg portions of the MOS costume were extremely padded, Cavill's quadriceps (in the suit) appear to have been quite large, although his calves were less impressive.
