‘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.”

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
