Our expert says:
The top of the range ones have been tested quite extensively, and they're pretty good for improving strength. A lot of claims have been made about things like fitness and weight loss, those are a little 'out there' and there's no reason to think they'd be true.
In terms of the calf/ankle, exercise has a very limited impact. It's mostly genetically determined, I'm afraid to say. So you may struggle. You might find that your years of dancing have really strengthened/thickened the ligaments around the ankles, and that's why you have this appearance.
