Say good bye to Thigh Gap and make way for Bikini Bridge….
Bikini Bridge is 2014’s new Thigh Gap and is described by Urban Dictionary as “bikini bottoms are suspended between the two hip bones, causing a space between the bikini and the lower abdomen”
The hashtag #bikinibridge is gaining its popularity on social media and many believe that ladies who have the “bikini bridge” are equipped with ‘the ultimate beach accessory’.
Again, this dangerous trend is driving ladies, especially young girls to pursue “thinspiration” and encourages them to develop distorted body image and low self esteem by disordered eating behaviours.
Lucy Attley, Dove Spokesperson, was quoted saying: ‘The bikini bridge is yet another example of piling pressure on women to feel increasingly anxious about their bodies.’ and indeed it is!
I once wrote a blog on”Thigh Gap or Cheese Cake” http://wp.me/p3Y34Y-b9, Luckily I chose cheese cake over thigh gap, otherwise I might be in the situation going after the “trend”, suppressing my urge for the yummilicious cheese cake to achieve “thigh gap” and before I know it, I gotta say “hold on” to “thigh gap” for I need to start working for “bikini bridge”. Ask me again, I will still stand firmed on choosing cheese cake over “bikini bridge” just like I chose cheese cake over “thigh gap” because there will be never ending ridiculous trends popping out (I predicted the next trend might be “armpit gap”… lol) and I do not want to be a slave to them all. I LOVE MY BODY !!!
