    Dude, what?! Belly button trend?! Things are getting ridiculous. We ladies already have enough body issues as it is–I still have them even after “overcoming” an eating disorder the first two years of college. It’s hard accepting yourself how you are, especially when we’re bombarded with images of what we “should” be.

    well said this is the most ridiculous one yet I think. It getting harder to just be happy with your own body I think with everything that is constantly bombarding us

    Oh my goodness! I’d never heard about this before but this is so horrible!! Cannot believe society is pressuring girls(and guys aswell who knows) to look a certain way! This is ridiculous! Props to you gurl for standing up for body positivity and self-love! xoxox

    I agree 100%! This “health test” is complete bs! I had not heard about it before. It makes no sense.

    this belly button challenge is ridiculous. it has to do so much more with shoulder mobility than actual skinniness or health! i’ll stick to healthy eating and exercise.

    cute & little

    ahahahaha that “trend” with the belly bottom is indeed as stupid as it can be

  10. Erica

    I had never heard of this stupid and insane trend but like you said – its complete foolishness. Well written post about issues that surround body image. I can only pray that I can raise my little girl to be strong, confident, and smart enough to recognize the bull and not fall victim to unhealthy standards.

    This trend is so ridiculous! We all have a different levels of flexibility.

    Body shaming is such a huge issue right now, and the entertainment industry still continues to perpetuate it for the sake of aesthetics and income. It’s outrageous, and as for the challenge? BULL. Thank you for this post, Liv, THANK YOU.

    Just love it this post


  22. Tori McKimm

    As someone who suffered from an eating disorder for 4 years–and has now been recovered for 6–when I saw this was trending I was disgusted!! What are we teaching girls/women about what makes them beautiful?! I loved reading this article–you are spot on 🙂


  23. hannah TheBraidedBandit

    Yes! This challenge was the worst! Thanks for addressing this crazy issue!

    I’m totally agree with the last pic, fashion doesn’t meant you have to be skinny.
    Fashion for me is a way of expression of art you don’t have to damage yourself.


  25. TeenGirlReviews

    I never heard of this before, but it could be good for people who actually have a tummy problem. 😉

  26. Leah

    Totally agree! These social media challenges are SO silly!

    This is crazy! I had no idea this was something going around as a challenge! 🙁

    “Instead the belly button challenge proves that society sucks.” YES. THANK YOU. When I started seeing this ignorant and idiotic challenge, I got so mad. Not only is the challenge a ridiculous measure for health anyway, but it doesn’t even take body proportions, arm length, and belly button placement into account, so of course this is going to be distorted. Wish all young girls realized this :/

  30. Claire

    Its so nice to see this post because the pressure of being thin really is too much, its surprising that anyone can feel good about themselves anymore because expectations are so unrealistic.

    Thanks for sharing <3

    This is really thing worth talking about. Amazing post!

    Fantastic post.
    I’ve never heard of the belly button challenge but it is completely ridiculous as you day “the belly button challenge proves that society sucks.”

    Wow thats so crazy! Makes me really sad that these kind of trends even get viral. We all should just love the skin we’re in!

  36. Elements of Ellis

    I’ve never heard of this trend but I must be fat because I can’t reach my belly button. Haha!

    Wow! Thanks for sharing and happy Tuesday.

    I think this is the most ridiculous thing that has ever popped up on the internet. I wish all these silly, negative challenges/ pictures and what not would stop popping up as all they are doing is spreading a negative body Image and one that is not realistic. As someone who is naturally petite, healthy and has long arms there is no way I could come near touching my belly button when doing this. I totally agree that it comes down to flexibly etc and not your health status.

    Brilliant post x

    I haven’t hear of this trend yet but it sounds absolutely ridiculous. I strongly believe that being thin doesn’t necessarily mean that a person is beautiful. I’m happy that I’m confident enough with my body, and will never follow this kind of stupid trends. Great post dear. xx


  40. Well put together

    I agree with you 100%. Although we, whether we admit to it or not, are victims of all these sorts of harmful negative trends, It would be happy to take this vow with you:)

    This is yet another one of those idiotic trends set by society to make young girls feel bad about themselves. Our society really sucks.


  42. Alice

    I’ve never seen this before, but how ridiculous!!! Seriously, who comes up with these challenges. This is even worse than the Kylie Jenner lip one…

    wow this belly button challenge is completely ridiculous! I totally agree with everything you just said in this post, thank you for being so inspiring!


  44. Cee

    When I first read about this, I thought it was a joke. When I realized it wasn’t, I didn’t know whether to be angry or just sad. In the end, I’m still not sure I’ve decided on which emotion is stronger – but I do know that this challenge is utterly ridiculous.

  45. Jen Hsieh

    People are just straight up ridiculous. I can barely touch the side of my waist doing the belly button trick so it must mean I’m enormous, ha. But in reality I just have shorter arms and no flexibility and I love it.

    Keep on tearing down this bullshit!

  46. Nadia

    That is so TRUE!!


    I like how you wrote this post! it is so meaningful!!

    I’m relieved you avoid skinny shaming there, which is usually what people do when they criticise this kind of trends… Well done !


  49. Jenny


    This is an inspiring story to all the girls out there. It doesn’t mean that it is trending, you’ll also go with the flow, Try something that will make you stand out but in a good way. Thanks for sharing.
