The trend consists of people being skinny enough to see their ribs or posing at an angle in which their rib cage can be easily seen.

The craze is inspired by models and celebrities who have been posting pictures saying “bikini ready” with their protruding ribs, which promotes unhealthy and unattainable looks, according to Cosmopolitan.


This isn’t the first time beauty trends have been alarming. In the past, people were striving to achieve a heroin chic, thigh gap, bikini bridge, ab cracks and thighbrows, according to Yahoo.
