HOW IT STARTED: The trend is actually an anti-thigh gap campaign, in the sense that it encourages women — with curvy bodies, in particular — to post pictures of their thighs touching, and in the process, be proud of their bodies. And why Mermaid Thighs? Because that’s what the silhouette of a woman whose thighs touch looks like.
HOW IT’S DONE: All you have to do is take a selfie showing your thighs touching. You could be in shorts, a swimsuit, regular jeans or even mermaid tights! Anything, as long as you feel you’re rocking your Mermaid Thighs!
