Fetish tainted term meaning long slender but shapely female legs. Typically a stylish, classy or even trashy woman but with sexy shapely legs. Term used by men have an appreciation and fetish for the female body, clothed or naked. This definition originated years ago in the 30-40's. People like Clark Gable used it to describe Rita Hayward's legs. The word was used in many gangster movies with Edward G. Robinson, George Raft and others when looking at a sexy woman who showed her legs off.
" Hey baby, it's not the face they remember it's the gams."

The term "gams" refers specifically to the thighs. Used only in describing women's thighs, and typically only when said thighs are considered attractive.
That bathing suit really shows off your gams, Marilyn!
