So, what is it exactly? The thighbrow is that little crease you get between your upper thigh and torso when you bend your leg. In order to even get a thigh brow, you need to have at least some curves. Celebrities like Beyonce, Rihanna and the Kardashian sisters have been rocking their thighbrows in bathing suits this summer, inspiring a trend that's filled social media with photos of women confidently sporting those creases themselves.

While celebrities have seemingly taken the lead by showing off their thighbrows in photos, it isn't clear where the hashtag campaign began.

With nearly thousands of posts on both Instagram and Twitter marked by #thighbrow, the trend is taking the Internet by storm. There are even entire Instagram accounts dedicated to pictures highlighting this newly beloved body part.
