For the past few years, the ‘thigh gap’ has been up there as one of the most
ridiculous highly sought after social media accessories.
But the idea that a pronounced space between someone’s legs is a ‘beauty’ must-have is both unrealistic and potentially damaging. Model Robyn Lawley labelled the thigh gap “just another tool of manipulation that other people are trying to use to keep me from loving my body.”
"Why would I want to starve and weaken my natural body size?" Lawley asked. "I’m not saying women who have it naturally are unattractive. But I would have to change my entire frame just to achieve something that seems so trivial."
Now fellow model and RunwayRiot editor Iskra Lawrence, who gained popularity with her messages of body-positivity and her refusal to be retouched, has shown us all just how easy it is to fake one.
