I'm pretty sure that you ladies have heard of this crazy term that has been trending for the past week called "The Bikini Bridge"-along with seeing countless photos of the gaps between girls' hip bones when laying on their backs in bikinis.
THIS IS NOT A SYMBOL OF BEAUTY!
THIS DOES NOT EQUAL SEXY!
THIS IS NOT HEALTHY!
This makes me worried for teenaged girls more than anything because they idolize and dream of the perfect body. The media fills their heads of what they want them to believe is perfect.
When I was 14, I would flip through issues of Vogue, ripping out pictures of what I dreamed the perfect body to be: Kate Moss. This, along with other pressures, landed me straight into an eating disorder! This happens to women each and everyday because of these vile photos of what's considered "sexy."
Please don't fall for the Bikini Bridge trap-as stupid as it is!
Curves are beautiful.
Strong is sexy.
The scale does not define you.
Stop the hash tagging of #bikinibridge and start hash tagging #loveyourself instead!
