'Mermaid Thighs' Is The Trend Putting A Body-Positive Spin On The Thigh Gap


There's no shortage of photoshopped models on social media who will make you feel pretty bad about your appearance.

From "thigh gaps" and "back dimples" to the new and even more ridiculous "ab crack", there are all sorts of body shaming trends that create unrealistic expectations of what beauty is supposed to look like.

If you're fed up with these ridiculous beauty standards, I have some good news for you.

Thanks to one growing internet fad, the world's unhealthy obsession with the almighty thigh gap may soon become a thing of the past.

That's right. It appears that #ThighGaps are out and now #MermaidThighs are the new trend making a splash on social media.

Instead of making women feel bad about the lack of space in between their legs, this body positive campaign encourages ladies to love their legs and embrace their thick thighs in the most magnificent way.

By comparing their legs to a mermaid tail, of course!

This campaign is empowering women to embrace their beautiful figures and now lots of ladies are snapping pictures that proudly show off their touching thighs.

Because let's be real, everyone knows that having thighs that touch simply makes you one step closer to being a mermaid, and who in their right mind wouldn't want to be a mythical siren of the sea?

Yep, if you ask me, this sea creature campaign is certainly a breath of fresh air in the sea of body shamers out there.
