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.

“Whoever writes English is involved in a struggle that never lets up even for a sentence. He is struggling against vagueness, against obscurity, against the lure of the decorative adjective, against the encroachment of Latin and Greek, and above all, against the worn-out phrases and dead metaphors with which the language is cluttered up.”
