So how are your thighbrows looking bro? I know summer is nearly over, but that’s no excuse to let your thighbrow game flop.


Yes, I do keep saying the word thighbrow at you. That’s because thighbrow is now ‘a thing’. A thing that is taking the Internet by storm, there’s even an Instagram account dedicated to documenting the new must-have female body fad.

But what is a thighbrow? Well, this:

That line. That line at the top of Kylie Jenner’s leg. That line is a thighbrow. Welcome to the world of thighbrows, a world which once you enter you may never leave, a world where lines on legs are a thing. A thing called a thighbrow.

According to thighbrows are ‘a set of folds that frames the tops of thighs and separates leg from butt’. Famous curvy celebrities such as Beyonce, Rihanna and Khloe Kardashian have been showing theirs off.

Courtney Marshall, a Women’s Studies professor at the University of New Hampshire, plus-size athlete and body-positive fitness coach, talked to the Daily Dot about the new trend:

I don’t see how this can be called a body-positive trend when it requires a high cut bathing suit.

It also seems to require a flat belly, so that line about it being achievable for anyone seems fishy.

So there you go. If you don’t have a thighbrow, what’s the point?
