What the hell’s a thighbrow anyway?

Wednesday, 23 September 2015


First came the thigh gap (and boy, are we glad that blew over!), and now comes the thighbrow – the latest trend to hit social media.

Basically, it’s the crease you get between your upper thigh and your torso when you bend your legs. Why is it a thing? Because the likes of Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Khloé Kardashian and Beyoncé are posting it all over Instagram. Plus, the rise of the “frong” (a swimsuit or leotard that’s so high cut in the front that it resembles a front-facing thong), has helped catapult this trend as it makes showing your thighbrow off easy.

Our thoughts? It’s a bit silly and a bit pointless, but if it helps women be more confident about their bodies, what’s to complain about? After all, it’s promoting a slightly fuller figure, and for once, not promoting weight loss. What do you think of this new trend – would you post a picture of your thighbrow on Instagram?

    This is so pointless! It’s things like this that make young girls so insecure about their bodies.

    Share the above sentiments, people who come up with these things are too bored with their lives.
