Bikini Bridge: Is It the Next Big Thing?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

While there's little confusion over why Kate Upton bikini photos or Kim Kardashian bikini photos spread like wildfire over the Internet, many users are now confused to find a new term filling up their timelines.

What the heck is the Bikini Bridge?!?

Simply put, as defined by Urban Dictionary, it is takes place when "bikini bottoms are suspended between the two hip bones, causing a space between the bikini and the lower abdomen."

As for why it's creating a major buzz on social media...

4chan’s random imageboard /b/ is behind Operation Bikini Bridge, which is an attempt by the board to make folks believe the Bikini Bridge is "the next big thing."

It it asking users to share photos such as the one above and, in Phase 2 of the Operation, is refers to the Bridge as an "unhealthy obsession."

“After a fair amount of circulation has been accomplished, we circulate the images throughout parts of the Internet known to be biased on the subject of weight (i.e. thin privilege, fat shaming, etc),” one anonymous /b/ user wrote. “This should cause large enough of a stir to snowball into a fairly big subject.”

In other words: the board is simply trying to stir debate.

And few things stir debate more on the Internet than the topic of weight.

Just ask fitness guru Caroline Berg Eriksen, who posted photos of her VERY flat stomach just four days after giving birth.

Over the past 24 hours, meanwhile, #bikinibridge and #bikinibridge2014 have been tweeted more than 2,400 times.

The term isn't actually new (some say it was invented five years ago), but it still could be on its way to being The Next Big Thing.

Personally I think this is once again sending the wrong message to women. I personally don't find it attractive to be so thin your hips protrude when laying down in order to create this "bikini bridge"
