Proponents of the thigh gap are teenage girls competing with one another to maintain a thin frame. Social Media such as Tumblr and Twitter are inundated with images of thigh gaps. Specially photos of super-thin supermodels.

Statistics show that 80 percent of girls dislike their bodies by the time they are 17 years old. And despite reports that this may turn into unhealthy eating habits and low self-esteem; teen girls are still obsessing over obtaining that space.
