Magazines constantly tell us how to lose weight and look your best!! But they don’t tell you losing weight is not the only way to stay healthy! Mermaid Thighs’ for example is trending on the internet right now as a reply to the offensive concept of ‘thigh-gap’. This social media trend is trying to eradicate the obnoxious thigh-gap concept which sets unrealistic body standards for women all across the globe.
Women from all over the world are posting pictures of their thighs with the #MermaidThighs to promote a positive body image. This movement saw women take a serious step to end body shamming.
