Good thighs? More like good lighting. Model Iskra Lawrence took to social media recently to share her take on "thigh gaps," the body phenomena that has been all the rage on social media over the past year.
Her take: they don't really exist.
Iskra, who is a size 14, shared two side-by-side Instagram selfies on April 29 to demonstrate that anything can be done with the right angle.
In snaps taken the same day, one image shows her thighs touching. The other shows her with a wide thigh gap.
"No thigh gap or thigh gap who cares," the beauty wrote. "I'll be the first one to tell you pics are all about good lightening and angles. Always remember social medias not real life never let anyone else's pics make you feel insecure about yourself."
Iskra has always been a huge advocate for embracing your body image, but she really took it to new heights earlier this year when she blasted an Internet troll who called her a "fat cow."
To combat the social media bullying, the model laid down in her bra and panties, covered in bags of potato chips.
"This is for anyone who has ever been called FAT," she wrote, while also including the name of her tormentor and his mean-spirited message. "Opinions are like a--holes - everyone's got one🙌 thanks to the dream team for making this happen at work today."
The vulgar message she was referring to said that "Everyone needs to stop eating McDonalds," and claimed that "people like her [eat] too many bags of [chips.]"
She also posted a slo-motion video of her eating a chip while still showing off her curvy body in her bra and underwear.
"Ps I do not condone binge eating. I eat whatever I want in moderation," she said. "I will eat [chips] but I'll also make healthy home cooked meals and workout regularly. The message is who gives a F what anyone else thinks of you. YOU are the only one who decides yourself worth."
For many, Iskra is an inspiration for not only standing up to Internet bullying, but also for just being positive about her body.
"Health comes in many shapes and sizes and is also your mental health," she captioned a selfie of her in a underwear and a shirt. "I hope that we can stop labelling people and putting such an emphasis on size when we are all so much more than that."
