Remember the thigh gap trend, the viral social media craze that hit out at anyone whose thighs touched up top? Well move over unrealistic ideal and behold #MermaidThighs, the new body-positive hashtag that’s taking over the Internet - and trust us, this is one movement you’ll want to get behind.
Basically the idea is that the more your legs join up when you sit or stand, the closer you are to being a mermaid. But not only does #MermaidThighs shut down body-shamers, it inspires girls everywhere to embrace their curves and also reminds society that there’s more than one definition of ‘beautiful.’
But the best bit? You no longer need to spend ages posing for awkward selfies to get the perfect angle.
