There is no such thing as big boned. Everyones bones are the same size believe it or not, the only difference being between male and female. Your bones may be longer or spread aprt farther but all bones are same size.

Thats dumbest thing I have heard, everyones bones are NOT the same size at all. Where exactly did you get your info? And YES there is such a thing as big boned. That is why when you get taped for the military they have to measure your wrist and hips and so forth to measure how much of you is bone and muscle vs fat.

They dont use "big boned" you dont have "fat" bones. Everyones bones are generally the same in size, now your frame...and build and muscles around your bones are what makes you seem bigger or smaller. Geez sorry I went to aesthetic school and read all about anatomy...also theres always GOOGLE. Maybe the army does diff. stuff...no reason to blow up and act like an idiot.

There is such a thing as big boned!! if you look on any website they go by your frame size, a body frame is either small medium or large. So therefore a small framed person will weigh less than a large frame, any moron should know this good grief google it for yourselves!!

This person gets it! Its your frame....how wide your bones are..shoulders, hips ect. A large persons bones may be no bigger than a smaller persona bones...but a larger person may have more muscle build, or wider hips. Its so easy and you guys are freaking out!!

Just take every dead person's skeleton and tell me. Is the ulna and radius any different besides the frame/length? Find out foryourself. Imo i would just use chickens. Big chicken small chicken. All the same! People seriously need to think about this. A bigger person is because of their frame and the muscle/fat around them. I bet you if you dig up 3 bodies. And scatter all of their bones together, you wouldn't even know who was bigger or not.

Yes it is possible to have heavier/thicker bones than others. But it is not correlated to weight. A person with larger bones can still be thin. Just look at people's wrists for example, even if they have hardly any fat on their wrists, you could have bones that measure differen sizes.
It should not be an excuse to be overweight though. And yes, there are also different frame sizes.

So, you're saying that a 5' person's bones are the same size as mine at 6'3"?! Nope. Not possible.

I had heard before that everyone's bones were the same size, but I just don't know. I have twin cousins & they were always the same weight, but one always looked bigger even though he wasn't.

Yes there is different sized bone structure in humans: here you go:
Your body frame or bone structure can impact your ideal weight and your total body mass index, as well as your clothing size. Body frame sizes for both men and women are typically categorized as small, medium or large. Simple measurements can help you determine whether you are large or small boned. Accurately judge your body frame size to develop a reasonable goal weight, understand how your clothing fits and improve your overall body image.

Wrist Measurement
Step 1
Approximate your frame size by wrapping your fingers around your wrist. If your thumb and index finger overlap, you likely have a small frame. If the two meet, your frame size is probably medium and you are large boned if they do not meet.

Step 2
Wrap the tape measure around your wrist to determine your body frame, according to Medline Plus. Note the measurement.

Step 3
Compare your measurements to frame size guidelines. For men, a wrist size of 5 1/2 to 6 1/2 inches indicates a small frame, while a measurement over 7 1/2 inches is typically of a larger bone structure.

If you are female, your frame size will depend upon both your wrist measurement and your height. For women under 5 feet 2 inches, a measurement under 5 1/2 inches is a small frame, while a wrist over 5 3/4 inches shows that you have a larger bone structure. Women 5 feet 5 inches to 5 feet 7 inches are small framed if the measurement is less than 6 inches and have a larger frame if it is more than 6 1/4 inches. Females 5 feet 7 inches and taller are small boned if the wrist measures less than 6 1/4 inches and large framed if the wrist is more than 6 3/4 inches in circumference.

Elbow Breadth
Step 1
Measure your elbow breadth. Extend your arm outward with your palm up. Bend the arm at the elbow to a 90-degree angle. Use your thumb and forefinger to grasp the bones at the elbow.

Step 2
Measure the gap between the thumb and index finger to determine your elbow breadth. Elbow breadth is considered a more accurate measurement of frame size, according to the IdealBodyWeightChart.com .

Step 3
See how your elbow breadth measurement relates to a normal frame size. A smaller breadth measurement indicates a small bone structure, while a larger measurement reveals that you have a large body frame size.

If you are female and between 4 feet 10 inches tall and 5 feet 3 inches tall, a measurement of 2 1/4 inches to 2 1/2 inches is typical, while 2 3/8 inches to 2 5/8 inches is normal for women between 5 feet 4 inches and 5 feet 11 inches. If you are female and above 6 feet tall, 2 1/2 inches to 2 3/4 inches is typical.

Men of short stature should expect a normal elbow breadth measurement to be 2 1/2 inches to 2 7/8 inches for height under 5 feet 4 inches, while 2 5/8 inches to 2 7/8 inches is typical for men between 5 feet 4 inches and 5 feet 7 inches. Males 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 11 inches usually have an elbow measurement of 2 3/4 inches to 3 inches. From 6 feet tall to 6 feet 3 inches with a normal bone structure have a breadth measurement of 2 3/4 inches to 3 1/8 inches. A man over 6 feet 4 inches should expect a normal frame size to result in an elbow breadth of 2 7/8 inches to 3 1/4 inches
