The hot dog/leg craze swept the world in flurry of hilarity.
Those poolside shots of slim sticks of meat sticking up into a horizon of blue or a sea of sand brought a much-needed slice of levity to the seriously eye-roll worthy social media setups.
And as much as it made us lol, the trend of little legs jutting out into the frame stayed and with it the standard of impossibly slim limbs.
Now one fitness blogger is attempting to lift the lid on the unrealistic beauty standard.
She's a big advocate of the balance of mental and physical strength, often sharing photos of herself at heavier and lighter weights explaining how she wasn't happy in herself then because she was either binging with food, or eating too little.
Like many bloggers she points out how posing, lighting and even photoshop is used by bloggers to make themselves look better. Essentially saying what we've known all along: these pictures are not realistic.
One of her most popular posts, however, has been of her pointing out the ridiculousness of those 'hot dog legs'.
At the beginning of June she posted a side-by-side snap of herself lounging poolside, on the left tensing and balancing to get those 'ideal' frankfurter thighs, and on the right sitting like a normal human being who doesn't want to fall in the pool.
Çeçen points out how ridiculous the fad of these oblong legs are, explaining that having your thighs spread out when you sit down, 'is the most NORMAL thing ever yet us girls seem to be so self conscious about it.'
She even said that getting the first snap nearly gave her a hernia from all the tensing.
Now that doesn't sound like poolside relaxation to us.
Çeçen's upbeat nature is also refreshing. Don't you sometimes feel like you're getting a little preached at with these 'body positivity' posts? She suggests there's nothing wrong with posing to get those poolside hot dog thighs, but there's just other stuff she would rather be doing:
To people who do sit like this in real life; I admire your core strength & willpower! Yep, that's the truth behind poolside hotdog pics. Truth be told I'd much rather sit like that right pic whilst enjoying an actual hotdog What is your fave poolside snack? Kinda wanted to hold a piece of watermelon whilst taking this but it turns out that's only for advanced instagram posing.
Now, who fancies a hot dog?
