Right when you thought you were finally finished hearing about thigh gap – you know, that awful trend of glorifying large, empty spaces between a woman’s legs as a symbol of her skinniness – a new leg-related trend is getting everyone talking.

Oh, you haven’t yet heard of “#thighbrow”? Well, we apologize for breaking the news to you, but now that you know about it, there’s no going back. Here’s everything you never needed or wanted to know about the latest body-posing trend, which accentuates that fold where your upper thigh hits your butt.

While the Kardashians and Jenners have been flaunting their “thigh brows” for months (on boats, by pools, in front of bathroom mirrors), the term is only now beginning to gain traction – which means we’ll all be seeing much, much more of it, because that’s the sort of world we live in.


Can you explain what ‘thighbrow’ is just one more time? I’m having trouble processing.

It’s the flesh that rolls over the top of your thigh – signifying booty – when you bend forward, sit or kneel. See below:

Is #thighbrow the same as ‘high brow’?

No. No it is not. Some would argue that #thighbrow is #highbrow’s exact antithesis.

Can you create #thighbrow while you’re standing?

Only the gifted few – by which we mean Kylie Jenner – are capable of such a feat.

Do the Kardashians have a monopoly on this trend?

Not quite. Whatever the step below “monopoly” is. They’re, like, the Google of #thighbrow.
