‘Thigh Gap’ Jewelry Website Takes Stand Against Controversial Trend

It was launched to fuel debate regarding “unrealistic social media body image portrayals.”

A website that poses as a fake online jewelry retailer is working to fight against a controversial social media phenomenon known as the “thigh gap,” or the space between the thighs that’s being praised as a look that women should strive to achieve, as The Inquisitr explains.

TGap Jewellery, at first glance, appears to be selling jewelry that’s designed to be worn in and around the thigh gap. But on the “About” page, there’s a link to another page that reveals the website’s actual intent of catalyzing a debate on “unrealistic social media body image portrayals.” It also contains educational information aimed at discouraging women from engaging in unhealthy dieting to achieve the look.

Angela Guarda, director of the Johns Hopkins eating disorders program, is quoted on the website, saying: “The bone structure defines whether you can have a thigh gap: the shape of the pelvic girdle and distance between the hipbones. Most women have narrow hips that even with little fat on their legs, there is no gap between their thighs.”

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
