There’s a new body-positive movement that’s taking over social media. It’s called #BigThighTwitter and WE ARE LOVING IT.

In response to former conventional and entirely arbitrary measures of “beauty” such as the thigh gap, people are posting photos of their self-proclaimed “big thighs” as a response to formerly accepted standards and into radical self-acceptance and body diversity.

For the record, thigh gap or not, there’s nothing wrong with anybody’s body. However your body is built is beautiful. The movement has been picked up so much that the hashtag #BigThighTwitter trended on Twitter yesterday!
Though this is progress, it’s definitely not the first time that a movement like this got popular. Last year, “mermaid thighs” trended with a similar message. There have also been trends like #ThighsForJeaux and #BellyJelly where everyone posted photos of their stomachs of all different shapes and sizes.
This sort of representation is rare and we feel that it’s incredibly important that we continue to celebrate these representations. So join us and #BigThighTwitter in celebrating your curves today!
