Having a big or a little in a sorority is unlike any other friendship or bond you'll have. It's basically an unspoken rule of devotion that not everyone gets the pleasure of experiencing in college. Even when college is over, you have "your person" who was there through it all, and will continue to be there for everything. Instagram captions for sorority pictures to show the world how much you love your little can be incredibly cute and heartfelt.
From the time you you were told you were the other's big or little, you knew the matchmaking was picture perfect, and of course, you can't help but slay that amazing realization on social media. Besides, if the two of you don't pose for a picture together, did the big-little thing ever even happen? You want your social media footprint to be as lovely as your friendship, but also embody that sweet, everlasting memory — the one captured in the photograph.
There are thousands of big-little pairings all over the place, but yours is unique and picking out a stellar Instagram caption to voice that diversity is a must. While it may take you a couple tries to perfect the pose in your picture, when you find the right compilation of words to describe your main lady, you will surely know it. If you're still on the hunt for your big-little caption on Instagram, try some of these on for size.
