Social media has given us so much, it has become an easy platform to share our thoughts with the world. It has also made it easy for women to embrace each other and spread body positivity.
The top model Ashley Graham is using social media to spread body positivity. When we see body shaming is so common now but Tyra Banks and Ashley Graham promoted body positivity.
Graham shared a GIF of Banks looking at her thighbrow on Instagram to promote the episode, explaining, “It’s like a brow.”
The 30-year-old model starts a new trend after embracing her thigh crease, to give a body-positivity message she nicknames, “thighbrows.”
The fellow judge, Tyra Banks, had no idea about the word and was asked confused “what’s a thighbrow?”
To explain, Graham put her leg on the judge’s table, lifted her skirt, and revealed the crease on her upper thigh.
“This is a thighbrow,” Graham said.
“Oh, it’s like a brow,” Banks told Graham in replying.
The terms like thighbrow created to body-shame women, it doesn’t describe their physical appearance. Graham’s post is about the reality we are living in and her followers totally embraced the term. They’re proudly sharing photos of their own thighbrow; more than 12,000 posts have hashtagged it.
“Learned something new last night,” wrote one Instagrammer. “Watched this yesterday and absolutely loved this moment,” commented another.
Graham’s thighbrow GIF went viral, one young woman posted a mirror selfie and wrote, “The social media trend has shifted from the ‘thigh gap’ to the ‘thigh brow’ … If the thigh brow was the trend when I was a high school girl, I would have saved myself a swimming pool of tears.”
One Instagrammer agreed with the hashtag, “didn’t know that was a thing….” Others have spread a new message about body positivity, as one captioned her photo: “No smoke and mirrors just a sweaty Shayna on the beach with her pasty skin and messy hair. But also that thigh brow tho ;).”
“Sometimes our thoughts and feelings on positive body image and self-care are the only acts of kindness our bodies truly know,” another woman shared on Instagram. “There is some truth in having to teach others how to fully appreciate, respect and worship your body.”
So, stop worrying about the thigh gap and embrace thighbrows.
We should stop body shaming, and we want to live in a world where every woman loves their bodies, and this is definitely a good step to promote body positivity.
