Our Bodies Are not a Trend

Our+Bodies+Are+not+a+Trend

Over the 10 past years, the trend “slim thick” has been popularized and democratized by celebrities like The Kardashian. But nowadays this trend is losing its appeal on social media

and another trend that we thought forgotten is making her comeback.

Trends come and go and like usual women are the victims of this frame-up created by media like Instagram. The slim-thick effect started in mid-2010 and was a revolution at the time. Bye-bye, to the controversial “thigh gap” that made women starve just to have the gap between their legs. And welcome to ” slim thick” a movement where curves are preached at least it’s what the public thought.

In a very short time, the issue was no longer the acceptance of real bodies in society, but rather who had the best curves. In a way, the body liberation movement was overtaken by the urge for women to have the best “slim-tick” body. This is described by the smallest possible waist, a wide pelvis, a big butt and voluptuous thighs.This type of body has been inspired by communities such as the Afro-Americans but has been constantly imitated by Caucasian women, which has created an unrealistic body standard for these women. And this is where the danger begins because these women start doing surgeries like the BBL to achieve their goal. The Brazilian Buttlift also known as BBL is the most dangerous surgical procedure with a death rate of 1 in 3,000 according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.This operation consists of transferring fat generally from the abdomen to the lower part of the body to create that hourglass body The operation can be fatal or involve other risks such as necrosis, but it seems that these women don’t care about the risks of surgery. They don’t mind if they have to change their expensive implants often, or even risk their health. The expression “you must suffer to be beautiful” has never been truer for these women, who slowly adhere to the blow of the scalpel to achieve their goals. For a short time, Internet users thought that this trend would last, but after Covid, the number of Kim Kardashian clones on Instagram decreased. The reason was because of the arrival of the confinement. The public wanted something they could identify with, and unfortunately or not, the “slim-thick” trend was no longer the case.

Sadly, with the end of the reign of “slim-thick”, a trend we thought had been forgotten, “heroin chic” is making its comeback. A trend that promotes thinness through the use of drugs is the new guru of the Gen-Z. Discrediting the hard work some women have done to accept their bodies.
