15 Guys Who Are Absolutely Owning Their 'Dadbods' (Photos)

By

Women aren't the only ones challenging the unrealistic standards of the beauty industry these days.

Apparently, men are also getting in on the body image debate by posting pics that show off their average "Dadbod" physiques.

That's right, #Dadbod is the newest trend taking over the social media scene as dudes ditch the six-pack mirror selfies for pics that embrace who they truly are, imperfections and all.

Now you're probably wondering, the hell is Dadbod exactly?

Well, according to The Cut,

Dadbod is a physique characterized by undefined muscles beneath a light layer of flab, usually topped off with a beer belly.

The term was coined by Clemson sophomore, Mackenzie Pearson, who explains,

The Dadbod is a nice balance between a beer gut and working out. The Dadbod says, ‘I go to the gym occasionally, but I also drink heavily on the weekends and enjoy eating eight slices of pizza at a time.'

Basically, it's a bunch of guys with Will Ferrell-esque physiques who aren't afraid to be real af and flex a little flab.

Take a look at the pictures below to see the Dadbod trend.

Forget the muscular mirror pics...

#Dadbod is the newest trend taking over Instagram.

Dadbod is basically a term for a dude who has muscles somewhere under that beer belly.

In other words, a man with an "average" physique, like this Don Draper Dadbod.

Thanks to the Dadbod trend, a growing number of dudes are joining the body-positive movement...

By flashing a little flab...

And embracing their glorious beer guts...

As they prove a little extra pudge can be surprisingly sexy.

Former frat dudes are usually the ones who don Dadbods.

They are the products of gym sessions partially undone by pizza and beer.

Ladies are loving these doughy Dadbod dudes.

Who can blame them for digging a man who embraces his curves?

Men with Dadbods aren't afraid to live life to the fullest and indulge once in a while...

They always keep things real...

And they'll never judge your for eating that last slice of pizza (although they might fight you for it).
