The Thigh Gap: What Is It, and Why Are Girls Obsessing Over It?

image

A thigh what? That was my response too when I first saw a friend’s Facebook post about this topic. And then a quick search revealed a number of articles and disturbing websites about the thigh gap and why young girls are so desperate to have one. (Beware: If you do a Google image search, prepare yourself—it’s pretty terrifying).

In short, a thigh gap is the space between a woman’s thighs when she stands with her feet together. The look is considered trendy, and now teen girls everywhere are trying to get thigh gaps of their own, many in unhealthy ways.

Here at Birchbox, while we love a good sweat session and strive to stay healthy, we’re more about embracing our natural quirks and curves. So, in an attempt to dispel this craze, I’ve compiled a short list of celebs who are all wildly successful, gorgeous, refreshing gap-free examples.

Holy Mullet: Rihanna is All Business in the Front, Party in the Back 
We love when celebs experiment with their hair—variety is the spice of life, after all. But even though we’re adventurous beauty editors, we’ll admit that we’re a little perplexed by Rihanna’s latest ‘do. 
Debuting her new look via Instagram, RiRi’s cut du jour is none other than a mullet.Perhaps more surprising than the style itself is the fact that the singer made no mention of it within her social media update. How do you not mention that you’ve suddenly gotten hair like Uncle Jesse from Full House?!
Instead the image and caption she posted were intended to highlight the new pieces she’s wearing from her latest River Island clothing collection. We’re still working out how we feel about her new sartorial choices (and the mullet), but we do appreciate that the songstress’ candid photo was taken in the checkout line at a McDonald’s. Our feeling: this pic is perfect for the next “Stars…They’re Just Like Us!” feature.
