#Thighbrow: Women embrace their curves on social media

It’s getting leggy, at least on social media that is. The latest trend taking over Instagram is all about loving your legs.

With thigh gap mania (thankfully) come and gone, there’s a new trend in town that embraces those of us who don’t have a model-esque figure. Say hello to the #thighbrow!

So, what is it exactly? The thighbrow is that little crease you get between your upper thigh and torso when you bend your leg. In order to even get a thigh brow, you need to have at least some curves. Celebrities like Beyonce, Rihanna and the Kardashian sisters have been rocking their thighbrows in bathing suits this summer, inspiring a trend that’s filled social media with photos of women confidently sporting those creases themselves.

While celebrities have seemingly taken the lead by showing off their thighbrows in photos, it isn’t clear where the hashtag campaign began.

Watch out folks, the thighbrow might be taking over! Or, perhaps it’s just been here all along and no one has ever stopped to appreciate it.
