Following the much hyped ‘A4 Waist’, viral trend— in which Chinese woman posted photos of themselves to prove they were as skinny as an A4 sheet of paper— the ‘iPhone6 Legs’ have taken the Chinese internet by storm this week.
Chinese women are posting pictures of themselves with an iPhone6 across their thighs with their knees together to show that their thighs are as thin as the length of an iPhone 6 (13.8 cm).
Hangzhou’s City Express spurred on the madness by running an article featuring six female Netizens posing with ‘iPhone 6 Legs.’ The author of the article wrote that ‘iPhone6 Legs,’ “have become the new standard for legs,” and encouraged readers to try the challenge themselves.
However, a number of Chinese women were disturbed by this basically unattainable beauty standard. “How can people survive being this thin?” “Such weak legs. Can we do one with an iPad?” Apple’s iPads are nearly 24 cm in length.

Personally, I find Skinny legs unattractive. Toned legs are much more sexy, you want something to get hold of. First the A4 waist and now the iPhone legs. Goodness me ladies, you are beautiful as you are; stop messing around with nature.
