Hello, welcome to Healthcaremagic. Your BMI is on higher side of normal level. You must try to reduce your weight by few kgs. Skipping will definitely help you in this. The thigh size is usually not an indicator of good health and BMI is best index for it. So eat healthy well balanced diet and exercise daily. Wish you good health.

Thanks for writing to us.
Skipping rope will burn the calories and might help in reducing the overall body weight. The specific reduction of fat on thighs is difficult using it. You need to have some calorie restriction for that. Skipping rope can cause hypertrophy of your leg and calf muscles making them look thicker.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
